    I worked at Southwire full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is fair compared to competitors. There is a heavy focus on employee safety. The culture resembles more of a family concern versus other companies.

    Cons

    Some environments at Southwire are challenging to work in such as the manufacturing facilities. Sometimes the required level and quality of work required is ambiguous.
