Pros

Secure company with good benefits. Southern Company has a company/employee pay incentive where they match up to six percent of your salary. Free money is hard to beat. They also have a stock plan that is hard to beat. Southern company is a great public utility company to invest. Never has Southern Company taken a drastic drop on the stock market.

Cons

Long hours with no comp time. It is tough to work ten to twelve hours a day as well as weekends. You are paid for the time you put in but there is little time left for yourself. If there was a way to add vacation time for the long hours it would be a great incentive to work the long hours.

Advice to Management

Supervisors need to give job description and leadership to new employees. When you begin work there is little leadership from your supervisor. That is not a bad thing until you are expected to be doing things the way they want it done.
