    I worked at Southern Company

    Pros

    I came to Southern Company (specifically SouthernLINC) after being in the cellular industry for over eight years at the time. Having been in both entry level and in management positions in both retail, sales, and restaurant industries, I was unsure what to expect.

    I walked into an awesome environment with full benefits on day one. I also instantly had 40+ hours of vacation time, and got an extra 160 hours on January 1st. (company policy.) Additionally, there is a great bonus every year based upon company performance.

    Cons

    None to think of - except that SouthernLINC could be a bit more innovative as far as rates, plans, and the like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more innovative when it comes to products and services that you are offering. SouthernLINC should have been way ahead of the game on certain cellular programs, like $50 a month unlimited, etc.

    Pros

    They value your time and allow you to achieve an excellent balance between work and home life.

    Cons

    The IT department is not really on the cutting edge. They tend to play it safe, and this can make it a less exciting place to work.
