    Pros

    Excellent Pay
    Great Benefits and Pension
    Job Autonomy
    Great promotional opportunities

    Cons

    A bit of an old school mentality in embracing new ideas
    Dissention between recent hires and old hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees hired post recession have much better attitudes than pre recession hires. The California job market is still horrendous. Some Edison employees do not understand how fortunate they are.

    Pros

    While SCE has been going through changes and reorg within the IT group, this has been needed change as the organization was inefficient. many posting on the site complain simply because they were let go by the company. Even tho I was let go, SCE is still a great company and would return to work there if given an opportunity.

    Cons

    Entitlement mentality from long serving employees- nothing is guaranteed anymore

    Pros

    Leadership and Management are very interested in create a culture that values the individual and their abilities. If you want to work at a place where your are given the responsibility to make things happen for the good then this is the place. There is a lot of interesting initiatives and projects going on to take advantage of technology to drive efficiencies which is really exciting to work on. I have met many bright and talented individuals who have industry experience to leverage as I become more and more involved. Good Pay and Benefits, overall.

    Cons

    Vacation time is not really competitive with the marketplace, but we are expecting to see come improvements here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate the strategy and ensure it is driven down to the ranks
