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

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits are excellent. You work with very talented people and can learn a lot if someone is willing to teach.

    Cons

    Unfortunately not much training is provided, and it is nearly impossible to move up the ladder unless you know the right people. It's about who you know and not what you know. Typical corporate politics/culture, very discouraging to be at a company where they don't recognize employees hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. Figure out how to motivate employees again so that they don't want to leave.

    401k Match
    Fitness Reimbursement
    Great Medical and Dental Benefits
    It pay more than some jobs.

    Cons

    If you are not part of the clique, you will not last long. Nepotism, two faced managers, discrimination you name it ...its there. It is not want you know but rather who you know that creates long term employment at Edison
    Enormous amount of money and bonuses paid to Managers that basically do nothing and will do whatever to whom ever to appear efficient to Directors and Stakeholders

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees with dignity and respect.
