    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was excellent. Benefits were better than most other companies i've heard of. Opportunities for advancement were available and training available. Good work location. Vast majority of supervisors were very helpful and easy to work with, you wanted to do everything you could to do a good job for them.

    Cons

    Difficult rotating schedule, hard to balance work life working nights every other week though rotating 12's give a lot of time off every month. Highly regulated NRC atmosphere creates unnecessary stress, don't you dare make any tiny mistake. Training was thorough and contained lots of very useful information but could be implemented better and be more focused on daily operations. Testing was used as a means of threatening job status if can't maintain 80% average. Management became more and more military like and didn't listen to lower peons. Union atmosphere was ridiculous, it's much better to work with the company more like adults and not squabble over ridiculous details. After 6 yrs working in a union I officially hate unions and think they are the cause of many problems in companies, though with a union you will get very good pay and benefits that may not even make any sense and can bring a company down into ruin.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use hard line military style direction management. Listen and confer with employees. Get them to love you and they will follow you and do anything for you, even with the hard decisions you have to make that may be against them. Beat them over the head with a stick and threaten them and they will hate you and do everything they can to slow things down and annoy you. Lead don't dominate your people.

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

    Pros

    If you want to sit around and do average work for decent pay, you will fit right in. You can be checked out 100% and no one will ever know.

    Cons

    In the contact center they have not hired any of the top tier management competitively in years. They keep cycling in managers that have no experience or respect for how technical a contact center is and once in seat they try to run the operation by the seat of their pants. They don't take the time to educate themselves on how to run a contact center and make decisions based on their use as consumers with little to no investigation. Their contact center is also the dumping ground for managers that would have been bounced if SCE was run like a real business, Crap in Crap out. Every other year they hire well paid consultants to help the inept managers find direction only to fail on implementation. I feel that this mode is systemic in all of SCE.

    Advice to Management

    Hide in your offices, you employees know that your naked.
