Great people & company but senior management lacks leadership qualities necessary to make for an enjoyable job

Analyst Supply Chain (Current Employee)
Columbia, AL

I have been working at Southern Company full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood benefits, good job security, great people to work with

Conspitiful management i.e. only knowledgable on pushing employees past the limit, very overwhelming expectations, very unnecessary style of management

Advice to Senior Managementnot much hope so not really worth mentioning but to suggest a minima, create an enjoyable atmosphere for employees to work in by treating them like people. Be firm but mix in previous leadership style so company can get back to begin the best in the business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
