Edison International is unique among electric utilities in that a large portion of the energy it provides comes from renewable sources. Wind-generated energy, for instance, is a large part of its portfolio, though it also creates energy through biomass and related sources. When the company first launched, it provided and maintained street lights in California in the late 19th century, but it as evolved into a multinational corporation with myriad subsidiaries and a few interests in foreign markets.
The company offers a variety of medical and preventive health benefits, including health insurance and prescription drug coverage. It also offers 401(k) plans with company-match incentives, and Edison International will also match certain charitable gifts that its employees make. Workers can take advantage of tuition reimbursement opportunities if they want to further their education without having to fund it themselves; they can also take part in the company's ride-share programs to reduce their carbon footprints as well as their transportation costs.
Employees at Edison International are enthusiastic about the company's "outstanding benefits and development opportunities" and its supportive management structure. Some complain that "politics and relationships" can get in the way of business, especially at the middle management level, but they also feel secure in their jobs and motivated to move up. – less
