    Pros

    Company rewards performance and allows employees to carve out their own arc. Nothing is overly bureaucratic, employees are empowered to accomplish their work. Strong sense of pride and understanding of importance of products. Challenged with exciting and meaningful opportunities every day. Strong investment back into the employees. Benefits package is good, time off is generous. Strong ties to local communities,... charities, and employee events.

    Cons

    Nothing significant, if something is wrong you work with the team to change it.

    I have been working at Revision Military full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Night-shift low management higher pay and new operations level equal opportunity freedom of doing things the way you see fit as ling as it's a benefit recognition from engineering staff (good to get a leg up if you have the background/drive) freedom of scheduling your own breaks due to the necessity to cover others on shift

    Cons

    less recognition due to low management work load distribution workplace drama staffing turn around rate

    Advice to Management

    Although I like what I do my drive is to be able to move up within the company and be able to learn all of the skills available to me. Allowing your employees to cross train is beneficial to the overall wealth and well being of the company. By establishing better communications between departments and by getting to know your employees more than having small events. By being able to talk to your employees it will... better help track progress and strengthen the workplaces overall appeal to any new help. A higher level of commitment from management would help as well, being told you will have an interview with your direct manager from your supervisor for a position change then to not have one is quite incompetent and further lessens the bond between management and staffing.

    Pros

    They make some cool stuff. The product protects soldiers.

    Cons

    A whole lot. The encourages employees to write reviews so that it would look favorable to customers and future employee. The great ones are planted. Mid range and low end reviews are accurate. People are treated poorly in general. Turnover is high. I would not recommend that anyone go there to work.

    Advice to Management

    Fix yourself first. Start with the CEO.

    I worked at Revision Military full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None to speak of in the last 2 years

    Cons

    -Poor/Incompetent Management -Org Chart is a complete and utter disaster -Incompetent CEO -Mistreatment of Employees -No Training/Career Development or even a Review Process -Poor Quality Control -Incompetent HR

    Advice to Management

    Do not work here. It's not even worth the toll on your life temporarily for a better job title. It all trickles down from the top and the CEO is an incompetent buffoon who embodies the complete opposite values of the soldiers his company is supposed to manufacturing protective equipment for. Revision has obtained such a bad reputation in the Armor community that currently the only people they can hire are... individuals cast out from other companies for egregious reasons, and it shows in the management. Anyone who has been employed here with integrity that actually cared about our mission of protecting soldiers has either quit or been fired due to the fact the company is now only concerned with profit, regardless of what that may mean for the customer. Quality Control has been almost completely eliminated. Management is completely comprised of "Yes Men" who are completely disconnected and oblivious to the multitude of issues in their respective departments. Any competent, reliable, intelligent employee gets the incompetent moron's workload dumped on them until they are so overwhelmed they quit, so save yourself the trouble.

    Pros

    Good pay, awful management (marketing thinks they’re above the law)

    Cons

    Everything but pay, awful management

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing management. There is so much potential that goes Unnoticed by poor management. Take your employees seriously and they’ll grow.

    Pros

    Employee recognition is improving. Cross training is utilized to allow flexibility with staffing and more security during lay-offs. Overtime offered during busy periods. Non-production positions are more secure during lay offs. When times get tough with staffing employees outside of production will assist to hit goals and On time delivery targets. The newly adopted attitude of one team instead of separate,... competing shifts is helping to improve morale. Many current contracts & prospects to keep production going without layoffs for a fairly long foreseeable future.

    Show More

    Cons

    lack of communication through all levels of the company. Possible layoffs during the slow season for production employees. Drama and gossip can be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication throughout the entire company. Office positions should visit the manufacturing facilities and actually perform different operations to appreciate "the troops on the ground" and the struggles they persevere through to deliver to the end user and aim to hit On-time delivery.

    Pros

    The products and technology are very interesting and easy to be passionate about. Your work has a purpose and serves the greater good. You will never be bored and there is room to grow, especially in technical and manufacturing support roles. There are a lot of people that are willing to help you learn. If you are motivated and persistent you can get opportunities to demonstrate skills beyond your current role. ... The company has made a visible effort to improve morale with more events to thank employees, training opportunities, and implementing more competitive wages in recent years.

    Show More

    Cons

    There is too much reliance on individual heroics. Sometimes this evolves into an expectation or is taken for granted. This is due to the company growing fast, but very little time is left to train and develop employees. The benefits package can be improved with 401k matching. Management is sometimes too busy to foster employee development, growth, and recognize contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of reactive mode. Get processes in place that are forward looking and be more proactive about supporting growth. The solutions to these problems reside with the front-line employees, so listen to them. Continue improving the benefits package to offer more to employees to improve retention and attraction of new talent. We would like to see a 401k match. It would make Revision a long-term career... destination.

    Pros

    Revision offers a plethora of opportunity to move up. You could start out in paint, and end up in management. This organization pays attention to those who go above and beyond, and puts them in positions that fit their talents. If you stay in the same position for too long, it is your own fault. They offer great benefits, competitive pay rates, and a close community like culture. They offer an employee ran... enrichment program that brings employees together to participate in fun events. They also offer profit sharing, and bonuses are given once per year.

    Show More

    Cons

    Pay rates are not equal through out all facilities. Newport employees are paid much less than Essex/Montreal employees, and told it is because of cost of living. Upper management does not handle disciplinary actions fairly. Employees fired without any warning, for he said/ she said situations. Newport facility lays off without warning. Certain facilities taken better care of than others.

    Advice to Management

    Give more training to Managers/ Supervisors on protocols, and policies. Make sure all employees are aware of the additional benefits/possibilities that Revision has to offer. Explain profit sharing more when hiring.
