Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits are good with decent pay, but have to pick up the slack for mappers. Tons of opportunities to growth if you are a mapper.

Cons

Avoid working in CP&S if you are not a mapper. Management there loves them to death. You will work your tail off and mappers will take your credit and get promoted. Mappers are hired out of college with no experience and don't do much work and expect to get promoted every year.

Advice to Management

Please get rid of IMT Type 3 managers. There are a few of them in CP&S. Make mappers do work and stop promoting them every 18 months.

    Pros

    It is good company for new graduates without work experience because this company will assign work to you regardless of your experience so new graduates have the chance to gain valuable experience. It is also good place for people who are preparing their retirement. The benefit and pension plan are good. But they will be changed soon.

    Cons

    It is a good place for professionals especially for IT professionals. Your promotion or reward is not based on your performance or your knowledge. It is based on who you know and your managerâ??s mode. It is silo organization and communication is vertical. You need to know how to play politics and how to play safe if you want to survive.

    Advice to Management

    A culture change is needed for this company. But Unfortunately, the senior management does not have the capability to do so.

    "Energy Efficiency? What a mess!"

    Pros

    What can I say? For a company that went bankrupt a couple of times due to negligence and incompetence, the rate-payers are paying for it to keep it alive today. It is a stable company, but it is not a company that you can give praise for its culture, management style, and morale. If you are looking for a place to build your career based on performance, this is not the place for you. Here, it is who you know, not what you know. I know for a fact that they at the Energy Efficiency Division will even give you a project manager position regardless that your first and last job was being a spoiled brat, who leeches off his parents, with no educational background or managerial experience to be an analyst, contract manager, and also a project manager in the first place.

    Cons

    Energy Efficiency Division is a mess of new, incompetent managers who will hire based on anyone they like, not based on his/her skill and/or experience level. It is getting more common, as you stay longer and notice what is going on. It is not right for the company to hire people you had intimate relationships with or friends to work in the same department. It is a conflict of interest, deciding that one person over others who are much more qualified and experience to fit the job.

    Advice to Management

    YES, it is your fault to hire unqualified, incompetent, people. You have reviewed their resume. HR declined their candidacy, but you still request to have that person interviewed. What is your excuse this time for not thinking what is best for the company, the stakeholders, the public? I want you reprimanded for this to appease the other fellow employees who are involved in such a depressing working environment with low morale that you have brought into this company. You are unfit to move this department or company forward.
