I have been working at Southern Company full-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible work hours and nice staff. The environment is very friendly to new hires. Starting pay was decent.

Cons

Very aged company. Felt awkward as a younger adult coming in to the work force working with exclusively 50+ employees. There are politics within the office which is discouraging.

    Pros

    Southern Company has an open developmental move program that allow to to try working in different departments within the company

    Cons

    Southern tends to have a Good Ole boy mentality. This subsequently puts people who are not good managers in management positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house with the employee level management.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and job security.

    Cons

    Not a cutting edge company and steeped in tradition. Can be frustrating when you know change will help but no one will accept it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the siloed operating companies. One company, one brand that all employees belong to. Too much APC vs GPC garbage that stops change for the better from happening.
