Approves of CEO

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

Pros

You feel being part of a big, professional company engaged in a serious business.
Innovative engineering.

Cons

Bloated staffing at all levels -- no less than 10 of them from the CEO down to an intern.
Poorly managed vendors, from a GE / ABB caliber to a "disadvantaged" mom and pop shop.
Big money wasted on duplicate efforts and dead-end projects.

Advice to Management

Bring more outsiders to middle tier (director, principal manager) positions.
Get a hang of TCO (total cost of ownership) for electric and other assets.

    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.
