Cushy gig, but if you are young. ambitious, and want to move quickly it's probably not the right culture for you.

I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time for less than a year

Pros

Above market pay for the hours and the work in my group was genuinely interesting. Not a bad place to work if you want a solid 9-5 and you're more interested in life outside of work than rapid career progression. My understanding is there are large variances between groups. In my group the managers and people were nice, intelligent, and truly did care but were also bound by the limits of the overall corporate structure.

Cons

I was in a young group, but outside of my group the average age is a few years shy of a retirement home. Especially with budget cuts, opportunities to truly advance are limited and lengthy with length of service being #1 over merit. Potential to get pigeonholed on multi-year projects building skills that wouldn't be useful outside of a utility. Moves at a governmental pace.

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

    Pros

    Edison is a great company to work for. All the employees are very friendly and make you feel at home right away. They have great benefits: Medical, Dental 401k, Pension etc. You automatically get 2 weeks vacation to start or more depending on the position your applying for. You can also purchase additional vacation time with pretax deductions on your check. =)

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy and its very stressful. Your dealing with lots of upset customers and they naturally want answers asap. If it gets very busy they may call mandatory overtime with little to no notice.

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

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits (including such perks as profit sharing, paid gym, performance bonus), pleasant work environment (my department anyway), supportive management, friendly and professional teammates. Met people from other departments, SCE overall appears to be a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Have heard some divisions and managers are slave drivers and very tough to work for. Must serve 1.5 years in a role before applying for another position. Performance expectations are high, you better know your stuff, at least that's the way it was in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you really want the person to do in the position, tell the person exactly what you want and expect, probe and see if the person has the level of experience to do the job.
