I worked at Southern California Edison full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great pay for relatively easy duties
Not a demanding place to work
Great health benefits
Good place to work if you don't have a college degree

Cons

Unethical business practices
Not welcoming of new ideas
Management turns a blind eye to the elephant in the room

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to advice from subordinates. Reward hard work. The union creates a communist type work atmosphere, but that doesn't excuse the need for hard work. Avoid a union job if you would like your hard work and effort to be rewarded. Join the union if you want a cush job, where little output is expected from the employees. There is little to no jobs at the moment as the company has hired consultants to "help trim the fat." The company structure will definitely be changing within the next decade, but the terrible Los Angeles job market still makes Edison a great place to work, based solely on pay.

    I worked at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    A place you could stay at forever. They're dedicated to you learning and growing in your career and give great opportunities you cannot find other companies. Benefits were excellent, even still have a retirement fund. Management and senior engineers are very smart, knowledgeable people and are eager to explain the way the power industry works. Engineer I were required to take training classes given by senior engineers that allowed us to learn about most aspects of the company. Has a nice community atmosphere, nice people.

    Cons

    It is an extremely large company. You don't get to learn every aspect of power, there's many departments doing specific tasks and people within the department doing even more specific functions. But if you tire of one area, there's room to move around.

    A company with very talented people, but many areas of under par leadership and overall management.

    Pros

    Excellent salary and benefits, lots of very talented individuals.

    Cons

    Very much behind the time technology wise, very poor employee management policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Larger investment in internal technology applications, overhaul of HR policies and practices (take example of other corporate entities and their employee management policies), deeper dive into employee development
