    I worked at Southern Company as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong Intern development program and fun intern day (R3 Day) to help interns network and see the company culture. It seems as though the company will support you if you want to get additional training for another role. I saw several full-time IT employees also became certified engineers through Southern Company, allowing them to be more effective and generate more value for the corporation (and earning them a pay raise).

    Cons

    Baxley Georgia has nothing in it, besides Plant Hatch. Strong emphasis is placed on focusing on MIS/IT in college career.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the "corporate culture" and "strategic mission" type branding comes off as trite when you are sitting in a nuclear power plant.
