    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working on state of the art equipment, able to develop my skills further than previous employers, lots of opportunity

    Cons

    The only con that I have had so far is I live quite a distance but that is a con no matter where I work.

    Pros

    Everyone has a steak in the business, CEO will be seen walking every facility. You might see the General Counsel at the pro shop buying Sig t-shirts. Amazing pride behind the brand.

    Cons

    Not the place for someone that thinks leaving at 5:01 is "staying late." Work hard and you are rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family feel

    I have been working at Sig Sauer part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked full time as an executive assistant for ~3 years before moving to a part time role. It is refreshing to work with / for an upper management team that truely cares and tries to make the best decisions for the employees, the company, and the product (I have worked for other companies in as an excutive assistant role as a comparison).

    Additionaly, I feel SIG provides employees with the benefits of a mid size company (opportunities, stability, HR structure, resources, etc.) while still maintaining some aspects of a smaller company (people typcally are not 'above' doing something and are usually very willing to help personally or help find the correct resource).

    Cons

    SIG SAUER can be off-putting to some due to the fast pace enviroment.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Sig Sauer has been a very rewarding experience. The company promises its employees that when it grows, so will the work force. That seems simple, but the reality is, I have seen the company invest in its people with salaries, company wide bonuses, training, and high end machines and equipment. The aggressive personality of Sig is a welcome change to the passive non committed places I have worked in the past.

    Cons

    Pretty sure if you don’t want to work for Sig, you won’t for long. You will either be a contributor to the process, or you will be asked to leave. I’m not sure if that’s a Con or a Pro, I guess it depends on which side of the door your standing.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the honesty, and the transparency of the CEO. He knows his business, and his work force personally. I hope this growth won’t change how he interacts with us.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SIG has gone from a footnote in the firearms industry to one of the top 5 firearm companies in the U.S. in the space of a single decade. We are winning daily. Every day new innovations are being produced, better processes are being implemented, and more great people are being hired. The M17 contract with the U.S. Military is just the most recent of a series of big wins where SIG has literally made history. How many jobs have you had where you taking part in making history? I know I haven't had any until now..

    There's definitely no shortage of work, and slackers tend to not to last very long, but the atmosphere is positive and encouraging. I have never felt mistreated or unfairly pressured by my management team - and that's a first for me. Overall its a challenging, but fun place to work. I rarely take stress home with me from work.

    Also, if you get the chance to work with the director of R&D... take it. His collaborative style of communication, positive leadership and strong jawline make coming to work every day a real treat.

    Cons

    SIG is growing at an incredibly rapid rate - and there's a fair amount of growing pains that happen. Certain business groups can lag behind the growth curve at times, causing resources to be strained while staffing is increased and more resources are purchased to meet the new, higher demand.

    From a big-picture perspective, a lot of our problems are similar to getting bruises from bags of money being thrown at your head. Yeah its painful, but that kind of pain is easy to tolerate when you understand that its a symptom of success.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more good people - as many as you can find.
    We're going to be growing for a long time to come.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a company that wants to be the very best in the industry. Work is fast paced and expectations are high, which is what I look for in a job. I'm not sure where all of these bad reviews are coming from, because working for Sig and under the CEO Ron Cohen has been awesome. Will you work long hours? Yes. Does the company expect you to give 110% every day? Yes. This is why Sig Sauer is one of the best firearms companies in the world. I have nothing but good things to say about working here.

    Cons

    People always find things to complain about. If you're passionate about firearms and want to be a part of a fast paced, continuously growing company then you'll have no complaints. Seek opportunities to advance, and management will help you along the way.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SIG SAUER offers a challenging, rewarding and Spirit De Corps atmosphere seldom matched by a company of its size. The hands on leadership, personal approach and total commitment to the firearms industry and it's users is second to none. I've personally witnessed SIG SAUER using absolutely every resource to meet a requirement, short-fall or assist in a personnel matter.

    Cons

    If you're part of the entitlement generation, SIG SAUER is not for you. Quality work is rewarded at SIG SAUER, if you don't do quality work, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to Lead By Example and set the standard across all fronts. Hire the "right" people and retain the "right" people. SIG's history is deep and the respect for the products is as deep. When It Counts, Never Settle and Where the Professionals Train are all true tag lines!
