    I worked at SCANA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay for a co-op. People are usually friendly depending on what office they put you in.

    Cons

    They'll place you where they want you, department and city included.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Goals and objectives for co-op are clear.

    Very structured company. They place a great deal of importance on the hierarchy of organization.

    Former Employee - Junior Business Analyst in Cayce, SC
    Former Employee - Junior Business Analyst in Cayce, SC

    I worked at SCANA as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is always something to be doing. You won't feel like you aren't busy. Also, the company is very passionate about their "SACRED" values.

    Cons

    Culture is somewhat dull. It is for people who are "settling down" in their careers and starting families. Also, in comparison with salaries at similar positions in the industry, SCANA's are lower.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote better culture.

    Former Employee - Trainer II in Aiken, SC
    Former Employee - Trainer II in Aiken, SC

    I worked at SCANA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable overall company, solid business to be in

    Cons

    Corporate leadership did not supervise leaders in the Aiken operation to ensure they where operating in a professional, people-centric, and positive manner. Used people as tools with little concern for personal obligations like children. Would demand employees stay past scheduled hours with little or no notice regardless of parental obligations. Very clicky, only promoted on likability factor--not leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be involved with the day to day operations of the satellite. Use unscheduled visits and employee conversations to get a true look of the practices used by management. Ensure leaders have REAL development and proven skills and eliminate nepotism and favoritism.

    Former Employee - Heavy Equipment Operator in Cayce, SC
    Former Employee - Heavy Equipment Operator in Cayce, SC

    I worked at SCANA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    SCANA is still a tight knit group. It is like working with family. I still maintain the bonds that I formed when I was there. Both my parents worked at SCANA, and I was proud to continue that tradition. If I had not gone back to school, I would still be working there today. You will be hard pressed to find a better group of people than those within the Heavy Equip. Oper. and Forestry Dept.

    Cons

    It is a power company, so many people that don't work there hate you for their light bill being high. But, they are dumb. I am sure there are bad people within the company, but SCANA is such a big company with so many opportunities for work, you can easily move around within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions come as promised. They also hold regular cook-outs to give something back to the employees. They feed you during meetings.

    Former Employee - Procurement Agent in Columbia, SC

    I worked at SCANA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary. If you start here early in your career, you might do better than seasoned workers. How you are treated depends a lot on what department you work in and the manager - more good ones than bad.

    Cons

    Found there are many people with a lot of tenure who don't do much of anything. If you work in one of these areas and are willing to pick up the phone, you will be worked to death. There seems to be a magic advancement track that has no entry point for most people. Some promotions seem random, and managers may be moved around to areas where they have no experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more emphasis on the core values you claim to promote.
