      - Management will help you anytime

      Like Working for the Trump Administration

      Pros

      Electricity discount for employees, health benefits OK - otherwise avoid this snake pit. Your happiest day will be the day you accept a job offer with another company.

      Cons

      Toxic corporate culture! I have never seen so much emphasis on back-stabbing, lying and credit-grabbing in my life. Some managers encourage this behavior as well - unbelievable! You must watch your back here at all times or risk being thrown under the bus to further someone else's career - absolutely exhausting. Salaries not keeping pace with cost of living in SoCal. Old fashioned - never trust your employees enough to let them work remotely - management philosophy. Only Covid was able to force a temporary change in this. You will be back in the office coughing on each other at the earliest opportunity. Otherwise, it will look as though managers have no one to manage. Constant reorgs and revolving layoffs - this is how they "refresh" the workforce. It is typical to see groups of older, more highly paid workers laid off and replaced with younger, lower-wage workers in exactly the same job classification a couple of months later. If you work here, you'd better have this factored into your long term plans and have an exit strategy in place.

      Overall good company to work for

      May 16, 2021 - Contract Originator in Rosemead, CA

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Depending on the Org Unit you're in, offers very flexible and challenging work. Fully remote work is currently allowed, with the company gravitating to a hybrid model. Pays well (annual salary increases and company profit sharing), with great benefits

      Cons

      Big company, and slow moving in it's processes. It's a regulated utility, But everything can feel cumbersome/slow o a fault.

      Discouraging Work Environment

      May 3, 2021 - Communications Specialist in Rosemead, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's very difficult to lose your job at SoCal Edison once you're hired and the pay can be outstanding if you stay with the company for a long time.

      Cons

      Most people at the company are simply there to collect a paycheck. There is no sense of urgency regarding innovation, no meaningful sense of community, and no feeling that the company is "going places." Most people seem depressed and unfulfilled, and in many cases look like they're always about to cry.

      Steady, routine job

      Pros

      For some at Edison it is easy to move around the company. For others not so much. For me I have been at the same position, I love my team, but I also think that it's a bit too much of the same old same old. It's steady and routine. Everyone is very kind and understanding and I never feel like I can get in trouble. My work/life balance is very healthy.

      Cons

      It can get repetitive or boring.

      Pros

      good healthcare benefits options for employees

      Cons

      if you are an employee in IT you have to work with MSPs that provide not their best resources Hard to be innovative Hard to measure success, when success is defined as "customer satisfaction" and you are a utility company.

      Pros

      I got lucky and have had 2 great managers. They trust their people and do not micromanage. They guide and mentor, and the teams are accepting and pass advice to be successful. Monthly calls with executives and CEO . Love how transparent they are.

      Cons

      Low salary offer. Not all managers are great. Bureaucracy and politics will always be prevalent.
