Pros

Very friendly, trustworthy atmosphere. People really seem to care and so does the Company as a whole. Southern maintains a very friendly work environment and places an emphasis on work/life balance - it's not uncommon to hear from Management that, "Your family comes first." The training and opportunities for advancement are comparable to most any other large corporation, as are the employee benefits.

Cons

It's a large corporation and therefore suffers from all politics and beauracracies one would expect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Southern Company has a positive corporate culture overall - please continue to foster this. Employees really appreciate working for the company and the associated feeling of being part of a larger "Family." Let's continue to succeed and continue to demonstrate ourcommittment to the success of our employees.

    Pros

    the company truly cares about their employees and customers. They are one of the few companies that "delivers service after the sale." They expect their employees to be accountable for their actions during work hours as well as in their personal life. They stress to all employees that the employee is a reflection of Southern Co 24/7. They believe in holding their employees to very high standards w/ a true sense of loyalty and integrity. Family is very important to the company and when making decisions management keeps in mind the effect that changes will make on the employee and their family unit as a whole.

    Cons

    many advancements opportunities are located only in large metro areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    The environment is great! Very much so like a family in the field and in corporate. The culture is great and Southern Company is committed to doing a great job. Will see Senior Management; they're not hard to find. For the co-ops and interns, we had monthly development meetings with Executives and Management that were really helpful.

    Cons

    There is a very large age gap. The knowlegde transfer process is a problem. Also, it's all about who you know. If you can get in the right networks and keep your face out there, you'll go where you want to go. If it's not your passion, you will easily get lost in the crowd. And sometimes it get a little too conservative. They are doing a lot better with diversity, but there is still a long road ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all do a great job with the co-ops and interns, but continue that nurturing relationship when they become new hire; at least a mentor within the company.
