    Great Pay, but Stuck in the Stone Ages.

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Irwindale, CA

    ProsYes, 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 .

    ConsEVERYTHING 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 Senior ManagementGet 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IT is going through managed services. It's a very stressful time knowing my job will be gone...

    IT Specialist (Current Employee) Irwindale, CA

    ProsThe company offers competitive pay and good benefits.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk 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.

    Company to work for

    Great Company to Start or end Your Career

    IT Specialist (Former Employee) Irwindale, CA

    ProsGreat learning experience if you're in the right team and given the opportunity of work. Great salary and benefits. IT department is fairly laid back. Lots of volunteering and fundraising events.

    ConsLots of politics, things move slowly due to large company and approval processes, and management has favoritism. It's more of who you know on some cases. Company has been going through layoffs and will be rolling out managed services this year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote the employees/manager that deserves to be promoted. Contractors should be treated better. Don't have a meeting just to have a meeting.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Southern California Utility (SCE)

    Project Analyst (Former Employee) Irwindale, CA

    ProsThis company offers good benefits and some longevity if in the right department. There are plenty of knowledgeable employees who are willing to share information.

    ConsThis company has been going through massive layoffs for the past 18 months and plans to layoff more employees in 2014. Be careful when applying for position, especially in the customer service unit. Also, excessive nepotism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdditional in-depth human resources training is critical, especially with regard to labor laws and employee relations issues. If the training is comprehensive and Enforced this will certainly uplift moral and foster trust between employees and management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This is the one of the most Racist company I have worked at.

    Desktop Engineer (Former Employee) Irwindale, CA

    ProsThe money was good, but as a African-American, I hated being there each and every day in the 'Computer Lab'

    ConsIf you're African-American in the IT department.... Watch out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify with more minorities, and give them opportunity to talk and discuss in meetings, instead of knowing 'they' better be quiet.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
