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