I have been working at Southern California Edison

Pros

Stable, a lot of training opportunities, people help each other and show respect.

Cons

Slow, if you get used to the environment, it is hard to compete at other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't complain about this, but the changes are slow because a lot of regulatory committees are watching on you.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    The work at Edison is at the leading edge of many different issues in energy industry, Significant opportunities to effect change in important areas, including development of clean energy generation and policy around shifting electric industry as a whole towards clean energy. Outside of the large business units, Transmission & Distribution and Customer Service, co-workers are very intelligent and hard-working. Very professional environment.

    Cons

    Entirety of business is under the thumb of various regulatory bodies, leading to a disjointed regulatory regime that company has to operate within. This makes it very difficult for the company to execute general business. Seemingly every interested party in regulatory proceedings take antagonistic view of company, including regulators, consequently most work is reactive rather than proactive. Currently, senior management is under taking a significant internal push to lower electric rates by reducing overall company expenses which will, in the medium term, result in lower total compensation and harder work environment. In addition, there is a too strong of a push to hire from certain demographics for management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My suggestion is to make the process of changing positions and moving up in the company more transparent and easier to understand. It seems that only those folks who are in good relations with certain senior management move up quickly regardless of technical ability or management capability. Also, bring back holistic strategic planning at the utility level.
