    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Edison International full-time (More than a year)


    Amazing service to customers. Incredible technology. Locally focused but internationally renowned. Safety is a major priority. Not overly matrixed.


    There are sad stories from the past. There is a divide between old school culture and the high performance culture of the future that is gaining traction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value and respect all employees, we're all in this together.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Edison International in November 2012.


    It took forever! First contact was August, was not hired until April of the following year. Lots of interviews, including a very strange panel interview, then months-long waits in between.
