    I worked at Sig Sauer full-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment, innovative company. If you have a family, there great schools in the area. Small town, but very close to Boston. Highly recommended

    Cons

    Location: In the area, cost of living is high compared to the other parts of the country. Weather is not to die for either.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, paid time off, 401k, health benefits and merchandise discounts

    Cons

    Incompetent management, advancements not based on experience and job performance but "personal attributes"

    Advice to Management

    Take suggestions and feedback from "all" your employees because they are the foundation of the company. Give every employee the option for advancement while trying to put your personal feelings aside. Communicate and treat people as you would want to be treated. Lastly, know that negative reinforcements "never" works.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time

    Pros

    A lot of the departments are well managed and full of helpful people.

    Cons

    Some of the Managers will frequently lie and manipulate to keep employees from moving to different departments. Promising promotions and raises and then blaming company policies instead of admitting they never intended on promoting you In the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor your department Managers better. Some are treating employees like garbage and preventing them from reaching there potential within the company.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, product is awesome. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes get a little overzealous during the good times, end up laying off workers in the slow times.

    Compensation is just ok.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at middle management. Some of the people who were acceptable managers as a small company can't hack it in a larger more professional atmosphere.

    Pros

    Generally, good people to work with and decent benefits. Set schedules are nice as well.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Sig generally puts you where it needs bodies rather than where you are best suited for a job. This can lead to high turnover and good, smart, hardworking people being stuck in dead-end positions with no upward movement in sight.
