    Lets Not Hire Professionals, Lets Hire Our Friends and Family

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Long Beach, CA

    ProsIf you want to sit around and do average work for decent pay, you will fit right in. You can be checked out 100% and no one will ever know.

    ConsIn the contact center they have not hired any of the top tier management competitively in years. They keep cycling in managers that have no experience or respect for how technical a contact center is and once in seat they try to run the operation by the seat of their pants. They don't take the time to educate themselves on how to run a contact center and make decisions based on their use as consumers with little to no investigation. Their contact center is also the dumping ground for managers that would have been bounced if SCE was run like a real business, Crap in Crap out. Every other year they hire well paid consultants to help the inept managers find direction only to fail on implementation. I feel that this mode is systemic in all of SCE.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHide in your offices, you employees know that your naked.

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

    Disappointment

    Office Assistant (Former Employee)
    San Clemente, CA

    ProsGood pay and benefits once you put in some time. Room for advancement if you were willing to play the game. Had the pleasure of working with some truly dedicated people.

    ConsWhat can you say about a company that perpetrates the failure of a nuclear power plant? Had the misfortune of working with some truly incompetent supervisors and managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou guys fouled up a good thing.....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    10 yr employee

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSCE has good pay, and it has decent benefits. There are pockets within the company that has ethical values and good leadership.

    ConsSCE is a poorly managed company, resulting in a less than satisfying workplace. If you have something on the ball keep looking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDespite frequent reorganizations management can't seem to get it right. Employees gone with poor, inflated management remaining. It needs a Board driven reengineering effort combined with new, strong, thoughtful leadership in place to lead it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a good place to work

    Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Irwindale, CA

    ProsCompensation, 401k, health insurance, and some opportunities for growth.

    ConsHR organization is a joke. Your on your own as you will not get guidance from the rep,. It used to be a good company to work for. At the end I was a number

    The opportunities for growth are it is not what you know but who and HR stands by and does nothing

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue the people you have there

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
