Southern California Edison (SCE), an Edison International company, is one of the nation’s largest investor-owned utilities. Our service territory includes about 430 cities and communities with a total customer base of about 5 million residential and business accounts. The company serves nearly 15 million people in a 50,000 square-mile service area with Central, Coastal and Southern California. SCE is regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The company maintains more than 115,000 miles of transmission lines and approximately 1.5 million electricity poles. We’re committed to keeping electricity safe, reliable, affordable and clean today and for the future.
Electricity powers our homes, our businesses, and our communities. We’ve delivered it to Southern and Central California for more than 125 years. As one of the nation’s largest electric utilities, we’re committed to keeping electricity safe, reliable, affordable and clean today and for the future.
In the Community
We’re committed to helping the region thrive. That’s why we invest millions of dollars and lots of manpower every year in local non-profits that help educate young people and protect the environment.
Protecting the environment is part of everything we do. From preserving local ecosystems to embracing renewable power, we take special care every step of the way.
At Edison, we build teams that are collaborative, strategic, and agile. Not to mention competitive for the future. For 125+ years, our business has succeeded because of values like integrity, excellence, respect, continuous improvement and teamwork, and these values still guide our business today.
Many of us at Edison meet new people, find new experiences, and expand our skills and opportunities through Employee Resource Groups. These employee-led organizations represent a range of cultures, traditions, ethnicities, sexual orientation, gender, generations, and life experiences and outlooks, and offer opportunities to get involved and give back. Everyone is encouraged to participate.
We're big believers that diversity leads to innovation, creativity, and collaboration. From our entry-level analysts to our senior leaders and everyone in between, our teams reflect a broad array of cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, generations, and life experiences.
So we're particularly proud each time our utility, Southern California Edison, is recognized for diversity or inclusiveness. Most recently, we earned a top score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2016 Corporate Equality Index.

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 & integrate new technology into the mix to make power distribution more affordable and greener.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Southern California Edison.
The interview process took several months. I submitted my application online and an interview was schedule several weeks later. The interview was conducted via Skype, with two interviewers. The interview was about an hour long.
