The Southern Company


Vault’s Verdict

Many employees describe Southern Company as a place where it is easy to get stuck in a department and difficult to get promoted. Some say the good-ole-boy system is in place there, and employees need a "sponsor" to help them advance through the ranks and to the "executive club."
