A very negative work environment
It's all about managers covering themselves here, and it makes life miserable for employees. Manager bullying runs rampant here, which led to the 2011 Rivergrade shootings in which six employees were murdered by a disgruntled employee. Avoid at all costs.

Public Utility
I enjoyed the customer service experience with Southern California Edison. A great company to work for. The customer base would sometimes get out of hand, but as the "customer is always right", there was sufficient support from upper management. The pay and benefits were awesome.

SCE is a great company to work for. Many jobs start out as contract jobs through an agency.
This company has an excellent company culture. The benefits and perks are great and there is great opportunity for advancement because they hire from within first.

It's a good place to work for provided that you put your mind to it.
You learn something new everyday, you have respect from your coworkers and your supervisor is always willing to help you whenever you need. Work hard and you'll see it's worthwhile being proud of an employee of SCE.

Job Culture
Cronism, favoritisms, politics over production
I can attest that unless you integrate as one of the high school cliques you will be an outsider and quietly blackballed. The corporate knows that the front line supervisors and management are ruining the culture and workforce moral, but the problem is so daunting that corporate would rather brainwash the frontline employees (switch training) than tackle fixing the problem.
Vast amounts of money thrown at training for certain positions while minimal is invested into others, especially new supervisors. Supervisors hardly come out of offices to interact, your yearly review is based off what they hear from others about you so in order to get your positive reviews you end up having to play the high school clique games and brown nosing. Was even told by a supervisor that I’ll “win more friends by working less and socializing more” if you can find a quality supervisor that business objective and holds their staff to a standard it can be an amazing place to work but those are few and hard to find.
Pros
Great job security and can have a legit career here, quality pay
Cons
Extreme cronism, High school, no one valued production or a job well done.

There are some employees don’t do, don’t want to learn, only killing time, kissing up bosses because he/she does their annual review.
There are so many wonderful people works in the company. Unfortunately, there are too many political blocks between management. There are too many entry level managements don’t know anything, don’t do anything, don’t even know what his/her employees do, don’t award good achievement, only kissing up bosses, avoid, hide problems in order to stay at their position to retire.

Company claims to pay for performance
But it is very subjective where your manager has a huge input as to what is "good" performance. Working extra-hard is not fairly recognized. There is only one-direction reviews. Top-down,

Stay focused, take advantage of company training and trust no one.
SCE was a fantastic opportunity a great job at the wrong time for me personally, but still a stable place to grow and work. I would have liked to have taken advantage of the Higher Education opportunity.
Pros
Educational growth, salary and benefits.
Cons
Lack of support for unexpected changes and issues that arrive.

Great job
I loved working there in the beginning. 13;30 to 22:00.
When the laid people off there was NO notice whom? , just when.

When they went to 12.5 hour days, 3 on, 3 off, 2 on 2 off, MANDATORY over time on your day off.

Training days were work days on your day off.

The job was great. people, and pay great money.

San Onofre is currently being decommissioned.
This place used to be a great place to work. It was all inclusive, with a purpose. Since its announcement to shut down and decommission, it has gone downhill.
