I have been working at Southern California Edison as an intern for more than 3 years

Pros

Lots of professional experience in the power industry. They do things thoroughly and safely. A lot of intelligent hardworking people, and a few very good managers. If you do good work, and produce value you have very excellent job security, the power industry is quite stable.

Cons

Slow growth. Sometimes there is a lot of politics among managers. A lot of slack in the company with extra departments and middle management. They recently cleaned house and eliminated a lot of unnecessary employees.

Moving up in the company can be a slow process, since it is a lifelong career

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the excellent quality and safety management but eliminate some of the bureaucracy

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

    Pros

    I enjoy working for a company which provides an essential service to many of the people of Southern California. The vast majority of the employees are hard working and caring. The pay is competitive and the benefit package is excellent.

    Cons

    The electric utility industry is going through massive change and the "traditional" regulated utilities have to adapt or face going out of business. This massive restructuring is causing reductions in force as support services are outsourced and as the core company functions are changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, the CEO of Edison International and the President of Southern California Edison have done a credible job of articulating the need for change. However, some of the newer leadership (less than three years with the company) are making changes without a clear understanding of the potential ramifications.
