Solid Internship - Good for applying IT skills

IT Intern (Former Employee) Baxley, GA

ProsStrong Intern development program and fun intern day (R3 Day) to help interns network and see the company culture. It seems as though the company will support you if you want to get additional training for another role. I saw several full-time IT employees also became certified engineers through Southern Company, allowing them to be more effective and generate more value for the corporation (and earning them a pay raise).

ConsBaxley Georgia has nothing in it, besides Plant Hatch. Strong emphasis is placed on focusing on MIS/IT in college career.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the "corporate culture" and "strategic mission" type branding comes off as trite when you are sitting in a nuclear power plant.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
