Very nice and quiet place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALJune 18, 2014
Pros: good coffee, we have our own breakroom.
Cons: sometimes it is too quiet.
I've learned so much about processing expense statements, timekeeping and processing timecards. My co-workers are great. My supervisor is very understanding. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my co-workers on a project and everybody getting along.

Maximo Customization Analyst (Former Employee), Atlanta, GaFebruary 25, 2014
The hiring process went smoothly, the HR and payroll people were responsive to any issues, and the benefits are good enough where I still use them on Cobra rather than what is offered through my current agency.

Laid back atmosphere as long as you get your work done.
Designer (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALJanuary 1, 2014
Pros: has a cafeteria
Cons: lack of direction sometimes.
It's a very friendly place to work. Great people that are willing to help if you need it. Sometimes there is very little direction as far as work. The hardest part sometimes is finding information.

Senior Cost Estimator-Database Admin (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALDecember 10, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: low pay
If you don't have a engineering degree from Georgia Tech forget about any job movement .

Management is lacking due to the fact risk tasking isn't look well upon.

Benefits are average .

Pay is below average . New employee retention is low also.

If you haven't been there 10 years you are looked down upon.

Business Development and Contract Manager (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALOctober 22, 2013
Pros: great atmosphere
Cons: limited opportunity for advancement
Southern Company provided great opportunities for advancement. The toughest part of the job were finding innovative ways to consistently meet regulations from a local, state, and federal perspective. Co-workers and management worked hard to find ways to make work enjoyable and listened to ideas from employees.

I learned everything from Business Development, – more... Compliance, Risk Control, Financial Analysis, and Billing activities. – less
