    Pros

    The company culture during my summer working for Southern Company was just incredible. Every Friday we would meet over donuts to discuss the newsworthy topics of each team or relevant to industry as well as about personal developments. I felt valued and was given amazing opportunities to get to know the company and industry better.

    Cons

    Did occasionally have slow time between projects.
