I have been working at Southern Company full-time (more than an 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.

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

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    not 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.
