    I have been working at Southern Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a stable company. I understand that there are many people who like this place and that is totally good for them!

    Cons

    There are many cons. Firstly, the company is away too conservative and it is filled with old males. The cafeteria in Inverness has around 7 television screens and EVERY one of them is constantly tuned to Fox News. I've heard a myriad of racist and sexist comments during my five years working for this company an it's very disgusting. This is not at all a good pale for a younger technical professional to learn because the culture and knowledge retention programs are so regressive. There is no real knowledge retention program by the way, these old guys just fly by the seat of their pants. I've seen a few comments about how minorities apparently get priority promotion over others which is simply the most untrue thing that I've ever heard in my life. In actuality, the leadership is dominated by white men and there is absolutely no sign of that changing anytime soon. The middle management at this company are spineless and function mainly as yes men. The culture is extremely regressive and stupendously conservative. The company does a horrific job at actually training younger professionals. This is not the place where a young person with ideas should work. It's too stifling of an atmosphere and I personally have been searching for a much better position in another geographic location for a few months. I've gotten a few offers for interviews so let's hope that I can leave this company once and for all!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself and institute a younger and more dynamic and diverse set of individuals to make this company actually competitive. I'm afraid that you've lost me already but you may be able to keep other bright minds. Seriously folks, this is a terrible place to work and if you are a sane individual that hates politics, racism, sexism, and plain incompetent behavior, you won't want to work here at all! You have to ask yourself if stability trumps decency, innovation, and passion. To me, it sure as hell doesn't.
