Pros

Proud to help our military by manufacturing small arms ammo.

Cons

Very poorly managed.
Employees are allowed to switch from one job to another in less than 6 months, resulting in many people who barely learn a job, or carry responsibility before moving on.
HR sides with management...always. If employee reports to HR, they are retaliated against by the manager.
Horrible company culture at this location..
They play this game to 'Recognize Revenue' by briinging in raw materials, charging the Government back for it before product is built.
The best thing that could happen to Lake City is if another contractor took over operations.
Please get some decent managers in here.
Understaffed IT department resulting in company critical applications being written in Access and excel spreadsheets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good hard look at what is going on. Make some decisions, please.

    Pros

    Nice office space in the Mesa Arizona facility

    Cons

    There's a culture in the mesa, Az office that thrive in the desire to managment people by fear. If mistakes happen which in any orgazation they do, manager will reprimand or fire the person that made the mistake. Also the company is very volitial and have had several round of layoff since 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employee to makes mistake and learn in the process.
