Current Employee - Project Manager in Irwindale, CA (US)

I have been working at Southern California Edison full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The pay is excellent and the benefits. The IT management team was just reduced by twenty percent. If oyu are looking for state of the art projects then this is the place to be.

Cons

IT is currently being hacked with layoffs in 2013. 20-30 percent of the staff will be let go in 2013. There is a new CIO and Directors which have a big say on how things get done from now on. I see a very small IT group in the next year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We have way to many vendor who supply basics Analyst H1B consultants which is in violation of the Labor Code and their Visas.

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

    Pros

    In a relatively non-competitive business, salary is at market rate, benefits is above average, with lot's of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Company is growing thru "shrinking" pain as it attempts to reconcile the deficit (thru layoffs) amassed over the may years of budgetary and organizational abuse. The company is moving away from the stable secure family style environment to a cut throat politically driven profit & loss business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the recommendations from external auditors on how to improve your culture and the suggested mechanics to treat your employees with respect and integrity. Trust your employees rather than operate from a position of mistrust and fear.
