I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Above market pay for the hours and the work in my group was genuinely interesting. Not a bad place to work if you want a solid 9-5 and you're more interested in life outside of work than rapid career progression. My understanding is there are large variances between groups. In my group the managers and people were nice, intelligent, and truly did care but were also bound by the limits of the overall corporate structure.

Cons

I was in a young group, but outside of my group the average age is a few years shy of a retirement home. Especially with budget cuts, opportunities to truly advance are limited and lengthy with length of service being #1 over merit. Potential to get pigeonholed on multi-year projects building skills that wouldn't be useful outside of a utility. Moves at a governmental pace.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities were there. Although people are not used to working typically in the company, if you want to contribute there was scope to learn and do what you want. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Going through reorgs and downsizing right now. Lack of ethics and values especially in senior management trying to keep their positions and their favourites, blaming and deceiving employees to set them up and push them out, keeping consultants on payroll. Network based. No growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stand by your good performing people that you brought on to do the work and recognize them, thats true leadership and thats what pays off. Being humane is more than just talking about it, takes courage and humility. Don't discriminate for your favourites, ignoring their faults, and blaming it on unsuspecting employees making them helpless. You say feedback and concerns are addressed and encouraged but in the end thats just to make it career limiting and string people along and retaliate against them.

    "No growth opportunity for working hard. Management only promote favorites and mappers in CP&S organization."

    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.
