    I worked at Southern Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Seriously great people working at this company. Family atmosphere. Relaxed, low pressure working environment. Great benefits. You become very familiar with an industry that many people take for granted. Lots of different areas to work in and you are encouraged to try new things. Made some great friends working here.

    Cons

    I left about a year ago and it came down to just feeling stifled in my job. There was a hiring freeze and "cost containment" i.e no training budget. I wasn't really feeling challenged in my job and my skills were getting stale. Combine that with the fact that pay is just perfectly average. Promotions are very hard to come by, and you get caught up in the HR grinder that happens at many huge companies. You have no idea if you are doing what you need to do to advance or not. Looking back, leaving was the right decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is by nature a conservative company. Many benefits don't really pay off until you have worked there forever. Unfortunately nowadays people don't work anywhere forever, especially in IT. Pay to keep top talent and make sure people are staying up to date with skills and training relevant to their jobs. There comes a point when the comfort of working here and the "stability" is only worth so much.
