    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time

    Pros

    Met some really great people. Had the opportunity to work on different projects with various people. Plenty of opportunities to try new things.

    Cons

    IT issues. Sometimes the portal would have issues or internet would be down. Other than IT, sometimes interns would be given busy work like scanning and organizing documents.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe the placement of interns can be more strategically planned. Some interns might have been unable to realize their potential or contribute as much as they could because of the department or area they were placed in.

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

    Pros

    I worked for SCE for 5 years immediately out of college and it was a very good experience. The company has great pay and benefits that far exceed the private sector. In my department I was able to have some flexibility with schedule and actually had a degree of control over my own work. I would definitely recommend the company to a new grad or young adult trying to get some real world experience.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and bogged down by a ridiculous amount of middle management. Many complain of a disconnect between line staff and senior management. Often times certain jobs are too specialised and it is difficult to have high performing cross-functional teams.

    Advice to Management

    Allow room for advancement and value your younger employees just as much as your lifers.

    Pros

    Southern California offers great benefits.

    Innovation is not the strong suit, its a highly regulated environment, many people have been at the company for years and it can be hard to navigate the sacred cows.

    Pros

    Was a family friendly environment, Fair cost of living increases.

    Cons

    Too much politics, Never sure who does what.

    Advice to Management

    Should really be feeling some remorse on how outsourcing all the IT employees was handled and the still lingering impact it has caused to core business operations that still stay in contact with me seeking advice.

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

    Pros

    Best benefits I have ever had
    Good pay
    Decent work life balance (most of the time)

    Cons

    Old school mentality
    Very political and process heavy (very long useless processes throughout the company)
    Red tape and bureaucracy
    Cost cutting and lay offs are on the top of the list for executive. Despite of this, the company is extremely inefficient in the way it operates.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire smart people, let them drive change. Stop with the cost cutting talk all the time as it drove employee morale to the lowest levels possible. Drive towards efficiency as opposed to head count reductions.
