    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time

    Pros

    Great time and place to work if you want to help clean the power system and help customers make cleaner energy choices. The new corporate strategy is inspired and is a daily reminder of how important the work is. The work-life balance is hard to beat.

    Cons

    There are some cultural pockets of complacence; but this can be avoided if you stay focused on the importance of the work. Employees often seek promotions through interviewing for new jobs within the company, since in-line promotions are all too infrequent.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Southern California Edison.

    Interview

    I worked with an HR hiring specialist to understand the position and submit the proper documents (resume, etc.). I was then tested in a group of other potential hires for team dynamics, leadership, etc., with use cases that we had to work through. I was interviewed two times and then hired.
