    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best benefits, from the results sharing to the decent pay, to wonderful people and teams.

    Cons

    Old school thinking, especially with leaders who have been around for 30+ years and believe in one way or no way. If you have young children and you're a female, don't bother aspiring into leadership as some leaders don't believe the two go together. No sense of strategic direction and too many loaded initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move with the times, be clear on strategy, communicate the strategy clearly, live the values, empower people to lead themselves, progress with the times, innovate...

    I have been working at Southern California Edison as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Office Moral and Culture is very supportive of each other. The benefits are great, if you are a full time employee. Great projects to collaborate with numerous government and private entities.

    Cons

    Managers lack integrity throughout each department. Everyone has been brought up to be "Babied" and fed with a Silver Spoon. Money is spent left and right, without any conscious decision to budget and truly look at cost reduction instead of cost increase. The ripple affect flowing to the rate payers. IT department has been outsourced, make routine IT service calls a hassle. Managers " Micro-manage" like they have nothing to do. Company is unwilling to embrace the future of the utility industry; ie solar.
