I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Salary and benefits are competitive.

Cons

Inefficient processes and redtape are often frustrating and make it difficult to get things done. Everything is considered a fire drill. Management only look out for themselves, often promoting abusive and unethical managers to directors and VPs. Strong individuals are often not recognized for their talents. Older employees are often retired-in-place, dead weight waiting around for a retirement package.

Advice to Management

Eliminate unneccesary layers, let lower-level management make decisions, recognize talent and promote promising individuals, and for the love of god...stop protecting (and promoting) unethical management. You would earn a lot of respect from your employees if you took a stand and got rid of bad management.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance if you don't want to get ahead in your career.

    Cons

    Non-stop propaganda about cost cutting and improving work environment without any focus on individuals. Many rounds of random lay offs and restructuring in different departments, resulting in even larger bonuses and salaries for senior management and above. Main focus is on "How great do I look in front of directors and VP", while forgetting that content and not pretty pictures matter. No personal accountability. Lots of redundant work for the sake of work. No common sense. Amother big issue is that even VPs don't have any say, except on spelling and choice of charts in the presentstions. Any level below is expected to agree and follow upper command, no matter how ridiculous it is.

    Advice to Management

    Bring upper management salaries down to the levels where they don't feel like Gods and will start showing respect to their reports and peers. Open volunteer severance to the whole company at one time, check after, only internal tranfers and hiring might be needed.

    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. Friendly people. Opportunities available to those who seek them.

    Cons

    Hard work is not rewarded. The environment lacks energy and focus. A lot of people play politics for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bureaucracy, cut departments, give each employee more responsibility and reward them for it.
