Company Culture

The overall company culture is very good and getting better with the new CEO. Some managers have styles that do not mesh with company culture.

Teamwork

Same as above. Overall very good, some managers assign teams within their department and sharing between teams are discouraged.

Internal Communication

Probably the most top down communication I have ever experienced.
Again some managers believe even in their own group that one team doesn't need to know what the other is doing, or help them.

Job Security

Like any good company if you work hard for job is secure, if you don't you are eliminated.

Handicapped Accessibility

Overall very good, but some managers don't follow guidelines unless forced.

Workplace Safety

The safety culture at Southwire is very good. and supported top down.
Continuous improvement is on going as most of the equipment is old and being modernized.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Look at the manager reviews in the areas of Team Work, communication, and not just productivity. Train or eliminate those that think they don't have to adapt the culture.

What I like about the company

The company is well run, has a great open culture, and is very well respected.

What I dislike about the company

Allowing some department managers to operate outside the company culture and think they are superior.

Career Development

There is always an opportunity for advancement here. However, the company lacks a structure to development its employees. The go-getters will rise to the top.

Job Security

As with any company you have the possibility for layoffs. I've seen one, but fortunately did not experience it.

What I like about the company

They reward hard-working individuals and are very competitive in salary. I could not have found a better company to work for as an engineer right out of school, and I can say that still holds true. Go-getters will make it through the ranks. Those that wait to be propelled will stay put.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes communication can be lacking, but great strides have been taken to improve it over the years. Leadership takes feedback from the employees very seriously.
