    I have been working at Southern Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable company with good benefits and fair pay. Great people, many of whom spend their entire careers there. Access to great resources, education, organizations, etc.

    Cons

    Slow moving. Corporate politics can stifle progress and creativity. Many have become complacent, lack motivation.

    Advice to Management

    To encourage a culture of innovation, leadership must discourage the corporate hierarchy. Executive garages and office/cube location based purely on on job grade reflect an old school way of thinking. Learn from the work environment at today's leading companies.

  2. Unmatched company culture. Southern hospitality is really exemplified in this place.

    Pros

    Nice people for the size of the company
    Supportive management
    Challenging environment giving you chances to think outside the box

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement - folks with 20+ years kinda rule the place.....
    A little challenging to get in at the mid - senior level - they hire from within - which is a good thing if you are already with them
