SHAPE YOUR FUTURE. CREATE A BETTER TOMORROW.
Sure, you can choose to work for a lot of different companies that claim to innovate. But how many of them actually have the power to change the world?
At Southern California Edison (SCE), you can put yourself at the center of one of the most important issues of our time - powering our planet while drastically reducing carbon emissions and creating cleaner air for everyone.
Every day, we at SCE are working hard for our communities, our environment, and our future. As one of the nation’s largest electric utilities, we’re bringing more clean and renewable sources of energy to Southern California, modernizing our electric grid for a more secure and reliable energy future.
We’re a national leader in solar delivery and battery storage. And we’re supporting greener transport and helping to make electric vehicles more affordable. We’re cutting emissions and greenhouse gases to provide cleaner air for everyone. And in everything we do for businesses, customers, and communities, we’re offering more flexibility, more choices, and more ways to save. We’re making substantial investments in a clean energy future, for ourselves and for the next generation.
It’s an investment in our employees, our customers, and our communities. We’re all on one team and together, we’re building tomorrow’s energy foundation today.
We believe in going the extra mile and feel fortunate to be Southern California’s partner in energy. Every day we’re inspired by the people and businesses who are making contributions, big and small, to help our communities thrive. And we want to work hand-in-hand with them, every step of the way. We have big dreams and we know nothing big is ever accomplished alone. Together, we’re making sure California, and all of us who live here, shine bright.
SCE’s service territory includes 430 cities and communities with a total customer base of about 5 million residential and business accounts. We proudly serve approximately 15 million people in a 50,000-square-mile service area within Central, Coastal and Southern California.
In 2017, we contributed $21 million in charitable contributions and nonprofit sponsorships. More than 90% of our giving helps underserved residents, including diverse ethnic groups, seniors; people with disabilities; women; gay and lesbian populations; and low-income families. In 2017, our employees donated $2.3 million and volunteered 134,319 hours with local nonprofits and schools.
OUR ELECTRIC GRID
SCE maintains more than 105,773 miles of distribution lines. Our system contains approximately 1.4 million electricity poles. If you were to lay down the wires that makeup SCE’s extensive transmission and distribution network end to end, they would traverse the United States approximately 40 times.
IT TAKES ALL KINDS
Harmony. It can’t happen if everyone is singing the same note. That’s why we celebrate our differences. We're big believers that diversity and inclusion leads to innovation, creativity and collaboration.
From our entry-level jobs to our senior leaders and everyone in between, our teams reflect a broad array of cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, generations, and life experiences. We like it that way.

I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 8 years)
Great place to work. Lots of opportunities to learn, grow, and contribute to a slowly, but surely evolving business.
The utility is seeing a bit more competition these days, and I think the company is going through some growing pains to re-position themselves in the future. Unfortunately this means organization changes (moving/change roles & locations, loss of jobs sometimes, etc.). It's still quite a stable place to work if you're willing to adapt with them, but this may not be for everyone.
Advice to Management
Continue working hard to develop & modernize their measurement and control systems for operating the grid. This will be the key in unlocking a new business model and revenue stream for distributed energy resources (i.e. solar & energy storage) in the energy marketplace.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Southern California Edison.
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.
