    Pros

    The company values and pays its employees towards the upper end of each scale. The company also participates in an industry that is extremely relevant.

    Cons

    Southern Company has a poor history of promoting worthy minorities. In addition, Southern Company has a long history of promoting friends and family.

    Advice to Management

    Generally, current management is on the right track, but hard decisions need to be made about the leaders of tomorrow.
