    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time

    Pros

    Compensation and work-life balance.

    Cons

    What could be more stable work environment than working in a company that has been in business for over 125 years. Right? Not anymore. What goes up, goes down. That golden era is over. Thanks to the new leadership. Company underwent a huge reorg and outsourcing wave. Most IT positions have been replaced by low paid temp visa workers. Pretty much whoever was on management's good books got to stay. Everyone else got laid off. Or in other words, "talkers" stayed, "doers" were shown the door. There are also some (not so) glorious examples of people who got promoted to senior management but they hardly have a decade of experience on resume. Think about the people who made those decisions and think about the kind of people you will be reporting to if you decide to join. Next wave of lay offs coming soon in Business areas. Tax penalties for outsourcing, anyone? These so called offshore body shops have local incorporated entities in the USA so one could argue, hey jobs are still in the US and not shipped overseas. We know better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and while you are at it might even consider changing the company name since the "California" in "Southern California Edison" feels little out of place. I would suggest an International name but then it would be above my pay grade.

    I worked at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    In general, good and some talented people, but management is clueless

    Cons

    Too process heavy with poor direction for the future. Management is incompetent and too self-serving creating a disconnected work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes and then implement systems to support those processes. Processes need a major overhaul, don't implement systems to work with current broken processes.

    Pros

    Benefits / Salary
    Work life balance
    Team is very supportive and open to change and collaborate

    Cons

    IT team was not effective and as result some functions were outsourced. This will take time to rebuild and reorganize.
    Like any company going through changes a few employees are not happy

    I worked at Southern California Edison full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Great coworkers, leading the industry, benefits, and the likes.

    Cons

    Everyone is being laid off so SCE can bring in "managed services" , ie. TEMP STAFFING so they don't have to pay benefits. THe recent 5 STAR reviews are fake and bought. Internal atmosphere is dreadful and hellish. I'm so glad I got out of there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Southern California Edison

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are better than average. The work is not hard work. Great place to work if you are accepted as "one of us" by your fellow workers.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to get anything done. Lots of "we don't do that here." Lots of nepotism and other forms of "in group" attitudes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Pros

    Career opportunity
    Pension
    Great salary and benefits

    Cons

    Company going through some long overdue restructuring like all companies. A few long serving employees now being held more accountable and don't like it. This is to benefit the rate payer to reduce energy cost.
