    I have been working at Southern Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Culture. Great People. Seasoned PMO. Company appreciates and values Project Management as a professional service. Highly recommended for any Project Manager. Perfect mix. Seasoned PMO so they have had lots of years to get to a methodology that works with logical processes and procedures. A business community that appreciates the PMs and welcomes their knowledge. A PMO that is very supportive and has ensured the company has adopted to PMO procedures. Have not experienced any push back. Have a wide range of project types and opportunities from Infrastructure, application development, and business only type projects.

    Cons

    The Only con is that the PMs are not given the work from home option. There are several roles in the technology organization that have this flexibility. But not in the Atlanta PMO. With the location being downtown, that would be a huge plus for work life balance. If they had 2 days work from home, this would be the perfect place.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 5 team members. Went very smoothly. Lasted 45 minutes. I accepted an offer but they rescinded because I had a DUI a little over a year ago.
