    Cafeteria on Campus

    Cons

    You want to know one department that rate payers shouldn't be funding? It's the Communications department. It is waaay overstaffed (80-100 employees). What do they do all day? They spend tons of money on internal campaigns. Yes, really. Or they bring in 4 or 5 advertising agencies to discuss a simple campaign aimed at consumers when they should have the staff internally to do it themselves. Quite regularly, they'll have five people working on something that one person should be working on. Directors and Managers have a way of doing nothing at SCE and it is amazing that the new management hasn't done anything about it yet. Anyone good that is bubbling under the radar at a Project Manager title or Consultant title will NEVER get noticed. Managers and Directors have a way of taking credit for everything. So what happens? The good people leave. Kind of sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way for employees to rate their managers with no fear of retribution.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Some of tenured employees really try to help you out and help you advance in company. Other employees with same title were very helpful at first.

    Cons

    No communication, between departments at all, from the upper part of the company to the lower, we were always in the dark besides when the supervisor would give us a heads up on stuff "they heard". Workers comp division is a joke besides 1 or 2 people. Most managers were only worried about their number and didn't care about employees under them. Some offices were very much "the old boys club" if you were new. When Smart Meter installs started winding down and employees were being let go, people stopped caring about their jobs. Lack of advancement opportunity during the time I was there because of Edison requesting a huge rate increase from state and stalling entire company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communication between all departments. Don't keep employees in the dark about company situations while you do your shady business and screw them all.
