Pros

Good pay and retirement. Good chances for advancement.

Cons

Poor work locations, management is slow to act or listen to workers. Everyone in upper management seems afraid to make any changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to first line supervisors, I mean really listen and not give lip service. Senior management is quick to hire surveys or host training meetings, but never seems to listen to the first line supervisors. It would be good to remember who runs the company.

    Pros

    Job Security, you don't have to travel much. Good work-life balance. Good work mates. There is alot of nepotism among utilities. Meaning that once you worked for one utility it is very easy to go and find a home in another utility. This is a great company to work for if you have a family and you place a high priority on family time.

    Cons

    It's borring. Things move at a glacial speed. Management is very ego-centric, meaning that they'll ignore most of what underlings have to say. We're definitely not in the leading edge. If you really love technology and where it is going, this is not the place to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your view of what management is. Management is now more of a coaching role than a historical hierarchical. Create an entrepreneurial program where new business ventures can be nurtured and grown.

    I worked at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    Once you get a job here, you could potentially stay here for the rest of your life, regardless of how well you perform. It is basically like working for the government or a monopoly. So if you want a cush job, this could be it. The benefits are probably above market.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The beaucracy is stifling. You will run into colleagues on a daily basis who are just there to punch a clock. Most employees are mediocre and unmotivated. There is a ton of dead weight. Literally there are people who sit around and surf the net and goof off all day. This could explain our high electricity bills.

    The jobs are boring. The industry is boring. All of this is because it is a monopoly and a quasi-governmental entity. If you want excitement in your job, avoid this place. It will suck the life out of you.

    Once you work here for a few yrs, you could be stuck here and be pigeonholed.

    The pay is below market. And Rosemead is not the best play to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dead weight and trim the employee base. Recruit top level talent and retain them.
