    Frustrating

    CNC Operator (Former Employee)
    Newington, NH

    ProsDiscount on guns and free courses at the academy are a plus and decent benefits are the best things I can say about SigSauer.

    ConsConstantly increasing work demands to keep up with the back orders for the companies product have led to them speeding up the milling centers beyond the tooling and machines abilities leading to constant broken tooling and the demand to run several machines . Poor quality and attitudes being the result . Constantly changing bad management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring quality and pride back to the shop floor and give the operators time to inspect the parts which is impossible when running up to three machines at once. In one location the supervisor told us to fake our numbers and not put down what we really had gotten . Also complete lack of inspection days on end by certain operators was allowed. Better is managment needed!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Blind desk drivers leading hard working average joes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe common grunt next to you who sees the office 6 figure salaries destroying this place

    ConsA company that employs about 1000 people destroying the name and area workforce

    Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down, a line of customers at your door demanding your product is better than no line at your door at all!

    Worst place to work in the firearms industry. The only reason you got one star is because zero stars is not an option.

    Assembly Repair (Former Employee)
    Exeter, NH

    ProsThe free coffee was nice.

    ConsVery poor communication between departments. There is no focus on training new hires mostly because the middle management has no experience or knowledge to teach. Sig Sauer management lacks basic knowledge on how firearms work. There is no feeling of unity there. It is everyone for themselves. You can work harder and better than the next guy and watch him get promoted because he is in "the boys club". Don't waste your time working there. The one good thing that came out of working there is that it helped me get a job at a much more respected manufacturer at double the pay. Thanks for that I guess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit. Leave the company before your poor decisions completely destroy what was once an extremely well respected brand by serious people in the shooting community.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Place is a revolving door.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany not afraid to spends money on latest equipment for manufacturing and overall facility.

    ConsNo clear direction from management. No communication between departments. Everyone for themselves. People afraid of getting laid off. Constant finger pointing (the blame game) Place is a revolving door.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    High turnover, unsanitary workplace, adversarial coworkers, low morale, and low pay.

    Accountant (Former Employee)
    Exeter, NH

    ProsFree coffee and hot chocolate.

    ConsMice/insect infestation at both locations
    Unsanitary bathrooms
    Undervalue education
    Management is extremely top heavy
    False titles given to improve morale
    Push employees to breaking point

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on training and developing a highly skilled workforce that suite the needs of the company.

    Consider ESOP to keep employees connected to the company’s success.

    Lastly, utilize cheap technology to improve work efficiency.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I had a great experience working for Sig

    Human Resources Administrator (Former Employee)
    Exeter, NH

    ProsFriendly work environment. Management makes an effort to recognize employee achievements.

    ConsMy previous employment was at a corporate headquarter for an international company... It was hard to get used to working in a manufacturing environment that had an "office area" and a "manufacturing area".

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to break down the figurative "walls" between the office employees and the manufacturing employees. Manufacturing employees feel that they are treated with less respect than the office personnel.

    ConsVery damanding place to work. They expect there employees to have answer to any question they have immediatly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers need to get back bones and make decisions. All decisions come from the corner office.
