Former Employee - Communications Specialist II in Rosemead, CA

I worked at Southern California Edison full-time for less than a year

Pros

Many high achieving, high performing, all-around good people.

Cons

Reorganizations are the norm, so people are in a constant state of uncertainty. Heavy workloads. Almost no work-life balance. Title-driven organization with too many layers.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good opportunities were there. Although people are not used to working typically in the company, if you want to contribute there was scope to learn and do what you want. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Going through reorgs and downsizing right now. Lack of ethics and values especially in senior management trying to keep their positions and their favourites, blaming and deceiving employees to set them up and push them out, keeping consultants on payroll. Network based. No growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand by your good performing people that you brought on to do the work and recognize them, thats true leadership and thats what pays off. Being humane is more than just talking about it, takes courage and humility. Don't discriminate for your favourites, ignoring their faults, and blaming it on unsuspecting employees making them helpless. You say feedback and concerns are addressed and encouraged but in the end thats just to make it career limiting and string people along and retaliate against them.

    Former Employee - Information Technology Specialist IV  in  Rosemead, CA
    Former Employee - Information Technology Specialist IV in Rosemead, CA

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

    Pros

    You feel being part of a big, professional company engaged in a serious business.
    Innovative engineering.

    Cons

    Bloated staffing at all levels -- no less than 10 of them from the CEO down to an intern.
    Poorly managed vendors, from a GE / ABB caliber to a "disadvantaged" mom and pop shop.
    Big money wasted on duplicate efforts and dead-end projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more outsiders to middle tier (director, principal manager) positions.
    Get a hang of TCO (total cost of ownership) for electric and other assets.
