One of the largest electric utilities in the United States, with an industry-wide reputation for technological innovation and environmental leadership. The Corporate Communications organization, where I've worked for most of my tenure, is the largest and best resourced communications department I've ever worked for. The electric utility business is very complex and unlike any conventional business model, it takes quite a while to get accustomed to working in this environment. SCE is extremely bureaucratic, however, I have found that if you are willing to take ownership of your area of responsibility, you can be granted a lot of autonomy. The electric utility business is undergoing a lot of change and can be an exciting place to be, but if you are seeking job security, this may not be the best time to enter this industry because it is evolving so quickly - don't be surprised if some of the biggest utilities go the way of Blockbuster or other one-time industry leaders that no longer exist.
