Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Southwire provides competitive benefits and good employee facilities. Outwardly tries to engage community with programs and notion the of family owned ties.

Cons

CEO has very few ties to community other than job (permanent home in NY). "Company town" attitudes. Private company lack of accountability or scrutiny. Ethical flexibility. Condescending to workforce. Lack of diversity in management.

Advice to Management

Open up communications and have substance behind claims of the employees of Southwire being their "most valuable asset." Stop trying to be the smartest guys (and finally one woman) in the room. Just because you are a private company doesn't mean you are out of reach of public and ethical business practices.

    Pros

    If you are near retirement, the health insurance continues after retirement.
    The 401k plan is excellent.
    If you want to work in Carrollton, there is definitely job security at Southwire.

    Cons

    At the introduction/welcome course, called Southwire 101, an annual review is mentioned. You would later come to find that Southwire does not have a performance management system, therefore there are no reviews and there are no raises unless your manager is cool to you and in with the good-old-boy commity in HR. You will typically work for 2 years before clearly understanding this 'system'.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a competent HR team, starting at the top.
