    Southern California Edison Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Rosemead, CA

    ProsIt is a nice company to work for. It has good benefits and there is an attempt to stick to core values.

    ConsAt the time of my separation they were in destruction mode figuring out what to do. I am not aware of what stage they are in now, hopefully in construction mode.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDepend more on employees than external consultants, given the opportunity they can handle the work. Do not do layoffs by numbers rather but by values people bring in and their potential.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
