    I worked at Remington Arms full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers, Overall benefits, (don't have anymore now)

    Cons

    Executive management / upper management team, compensation for regular workers (not management team), communicaton, did I say Executive Management Team (well it needed to be said again,) work / life balance, company values are a lie now, vacation considering amount of work management expects and hours of work they expect. Worked like slaves and lucky you even get 2 weeks vacation each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your upper management executive staff. They are killing the business and destroying the company and if you can't see that, you deserve to have the company go bankrupt. You have an incompentant CEO, upper management coming in left and right who don't seem to know their right hand from their left, some can't even manage their own time let along a teams time and projects. Management scattered to the ends of the earth and hard to reach, communication to your employees is horrible to say the least. You are destroying a wonderful company and it is so sad and such a shame. You're losing good employee's left and right and either don't give a crap or can't see past your rose colored glasses. Maybe when your executive team bankrupts and destroys the company you'll finally get your heads out of your backsides and see what's really going on but oh, by then it will be too late. Lies, Lies, Lies and more Lies. What a shame. Glassdoor has CEO name wrong. CEO is George Kollitides.

    I have been working at Remington Arms

    Pros

    Solid benefits start on day one of employment.
    Overtime is regularly available should you need it.
    Union protection guaranteed, should you worry over it.

    Cons

    Very hot summers, depending on the department.
    Mandatory overtime means just that.
    Don't expect to hold a second job, the company comes first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe listen a little bit more to employees who run the job in order to understand problems with it.

    I worked at Remington Arms as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Approachable management. In my time spent there management had always been helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    Disconnect between on-site team and other sites. Sometimes discourse between facilities. On-site the team is beginning to work out the kinks that were in their processes but there are still a few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire on contracted employees.
