I have been working at Southern California Edison

Pros

The work here is very meaningful, especially considering there is going to be a lot of change in the coming years with the entire utility industry. Pay is good and people are very intelligent.

Cons

The progression of work is very slow and the overall population of the company is on the older side. They should try to invest more into their undergraduate recruitment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not be afraid to take the initiative and let people go. A lot of people latch onto the company and are just along for the ride.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits package. Excellent job security (they're not exactly going out of business - it's the second-largest electrical utility in the U.S.).

    Cons

    A stodgy, top-down company culture in which the manager is king and his authority goes unchecked. Independent thinking is discouraged here - anyone who suggests something new or doesn't conform to the thinking of the department as a whole is looked upon as "difficult to work with" or negative.

    SCE is stuck in a 1950s mind-set, mainly because a large percentage of the employee population has been with the company for decades, and old habits die hard. This is a dark, negative place to work in which employees talk the talk but don't walk the walk, and company values are just words on paper.

    There's a reason why SCE offers such a generous compensation package: the company culture would drive away employees, and it's easier to keep them with high salaries than it is to fix the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. We need some fresh, young, progressive-minded leaders. This is 2010, not 1955! A revolution needs to happen.
