    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 Management

    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.
