    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.
