    Awesome company to work for!!

    Office Assistant II (Former Employee) San Clemente, CA

    ProsI was blessed to work for SCE for over 6 years at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Edison provides excellent health insurance benefits, 401k and pension, paid sick time and generous paid vacation, all major holidays off with pay, including the Friday after Thanksgiving! How many companies do that?! I loved the 4-10 schedule, the all-inclusive environment, the ongoing training and self-improvement opportunities, and many other perks too numerous to mention. I would still be there if they hadn't closed San Onofre. Even when I lost my job they were generous and gave me a severance package and extended health insurance coverage. I can say with all honesty that it was the best job I have ever had!!

    ConsSome of upper management liked to micromanage, and they took safety to the extreme. For example, a couple of employees tripped and fell while talking on their cell phones, so the entire plant population was forbidden from walking while using their cell phones! Also, minor injuries were blown completely out of proportion; i.e., several employees were stung by bees and were basically told that they could have somehow prevented it. Not!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't micromanage; don't punish everyone for the mistakes of a few. Focus on building up your employees and they will reward you with loyalty and excellence. You have been given the responsibility and honor of carrying this historic company into the future - be worthy of that legacy.

    Everything has been going well.

    Intern (Current Employee) Rosemead, CA

    ProsMany branches spread throughout Southern California provide plenty of opportunities in various locations. The salary is excellent (as are the benefits) and org units really tend to work well together and have good rapport with one another. The company instills a great culture of safety, and the work-life balance is fair.

    ConsAn IT department was recently outsourced, which leads to concerns over job stability for others.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They are a great organization to work for.

    Procurement Agent III (Current Employee) Rosemead, CA

    ProsI like there diversity and they are great people working there

    Conswhen you are a contract and have been doing the job for more than a year and once it opens as a full time position you do not automatic roll over to full time. You have to apply for the position and most of the time they hired some for outside. That make not sense

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
