Current Employee - Project Manager in Rosemead, CA

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

Pros

Salary and benefits are competitive.

Cons

Inefficient processes and redtape are often frustrating and make it difficult to get things done. Everything is considered a fire drill. Management only look out for themselves, often promoting abusive and unethical managers to directors and VPs. Strong individuals are often not recognized for their talents. Older employees are often retired-in-place, dead weight waiting around for a retirement package.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate unneccesary layers, let lower-level management make decisions, recognize talent and promote promising individuals, and for the love of god...stop protecting (and promoting) unethical management. You would earn a lot of respect from your employees if you took a stand and got rid of bad management.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is excellent and the benefits. The IT management team was just reduced by twenty percent. If oyu are looking for state of the art projects then this is the place to be.

    Cons

    IT is currently being hacked with layoffs in 2013. 20-30 percent of the staff will be let go in 2013. There is a new CIO and Directors which have a big say on how things get done from now on. I see a very small IT group in the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have way to many vendor who supply basics Analyst H1B consultants which is in violation of the Labor Code and their Visas.

    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. Friendly people. Opportunities available to those who seek them.

    Cons

    Hard work is not rewarded. The environment lacks energy and focus. A lot of people play politics for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bureaucracy, cut departments, give each employee more responsibility and reward them for it.
