    I worked at Remington Arms full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to make decisions without reaching out to someone else

    The discount on firearms and ammunition was about 40%

    Cons

    The conversations between upper management and their employees could have been improved quite a bit

    Advice to Management

    It would be better to let the lower employees know the truth. It was obvious when we were struggling but instead we would get smoke instead of truth. Better to give us truth

    Pros

    Good people who work hard but have little to show for it.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work/life balance. They seem to think they own you, rather than employ you. working 12 hours a day and on Saturday and Sunday is not unusual. No management whatsoever. Your ideas are never taken into consideration, someone in a shiny office somewhere always knows best. Promotions are given to those who suck-up not to those actually qualified for the position. Money is the most important consideration, above your safety and the quality of the product.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth. Stop keeping people in the dark. Listen for once instead of micro-managing.

    Great Benefits, enjoyed working with the people in my department.

    No job security, company just cares about money and will get rid of people just to save a buck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying
