    I worked at Southern California Edison as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    They had a lot of intern-specific activities that promote team building, self-confidence, and networking. The company takes good care of its interns in training them and giving them tasks that are done by regular employees.

    Cons

    There might not be a big intern program with SCE these days

    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Yes, all the reviews are correct. The pay is great , benefits, and there are opportunities for training and affinity groups . This place is good if you're an intern, or ready to retire , not if you're trying to expand your career .

    Cons

    EVERYTHING moves slow, from processes to technology . There isn't much room for creativity and innovation since everything is defined by a set process. The IT department laid off 600 people as a result of the transition to managed services this month. Rumor has it that SCE as a whole will continue with lay offs in 2015.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out if the stone ages!!! The world of technology is changing fast and we need to catch up . If not, we're going to get crushed

    Pros

    The company offers competitive pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Many IT professionals have or will lose their jobs. The senior leaders don't seem to care about IT employees anymore. I

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask IT employee if they are willing to take a cut pay. Keep more jobs in US instead of sending our jobs to India. Look into the entire company to cut the people are not doing good jobs. It's not fair for IT.
