    I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time

    Pros

    Great time and place to work if you want to help clean the power system and help customers make cleaner energy choices. The new corporate strategy is inspired and is a daily reminder of how important the work is. The work-life balance is hard to beat.

    Cons

    There are some cultural pockets of complacence; but this can be avoided if you stay focused on the importance of the work. Employees often seek promotions through interviewing for new jobs within the company, since in-line promotions are all too infrequent.

    Pros

    Great opportunities if you are offered a position in the right place. IT and Customer Service may not be as stable since they went through layoffs. Try to look for jobs in Transmission & Distribution organization.

    Cons

    It may take some time to climb up the corporate ladder unless you are outstanding and have a great network of people who believe in you and that's rare at Edison. Too many managers hold onto their good employees leaving no opportunity for growth. Some managers hire their friends from outside giving no fair opportunity. Some managers are also micro managers and don't really give you much of a chance to be a leader.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the unfairness of hiring friends from outside. Stop being micro managers especially if the employee is outstanding. Trust your employees to lead. Give opportunities to people who you don't know but can get awesome feedback from their clients or manager rather than giving opportunities to people you have a business relationship with.

    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time

    Pros

    Had amazing time working for Edison. It is a solid business with excellent compensation and training. My supervisor was understanding and loving.

    Cons

    Some times hours were long and days lasted for a long time. This made for slow time coming together. And a lot of free time.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the employee is the basis and management is the means. When time comes. It becomes tomorrow. Often today ends in laughter.

    Good work-life balance, low stress. Upper management understands the value of letting creative specialists have the freedom to try new things.

    Middle management really does not understand the value of data-driven decision-making.

    Support your data analytics initiatives. Pay market rates to keep your talent. Hire managers who understand the value of data analytics.
