    I worked at Sig Sauer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. That is about it!!

    Cons

    Management of this company is all about greed and how they can line their pockets at the expense of very capable, honest people that have integrity and try to do their jobs. They will set you up to be fired or fail if you have an opinion or suggestion that does not match their questionable business practices.

    Advice to Management

    The reputation of this company could turn around if you would learn how to treat the really knowledgeable hard working employees with the respect they deserve. The politics in this company is the worst I have ever experienced.


  3. "Highly-charged political atmosphere"

    I worked at Sig Sauer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Modern facilities, excellent location (Exeter), and some very good co-workers, all ready to help.

    Cons

    There are some supervisors who do not know how to manage PEOPLE, and then there are those who play politics rather viciously. I witnessed shameless actions against others, and then finally, upon me. And they get away with it. Management always keeps those who should be let go.

    Advice to Management

    The tone of a company starts with top management. You allow this to fester, interfere with company operations, yet you lay off those who work, produce results and play it straight. Advice to owners in Germany? Clean house. Replace upper management with BUSINESS people who can be respected by those who support the company.

    I worked at Sig Sauer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None at all. I would stay away from this rotten company.

    Cons

    This company was very political including management.
    I ended up with a rotten manager who knew nothing about his job and nor mine. Only got in because he knew the new CEO.

    Pros

    Very comfortable atmosphere, knowledgeable employees, very accepting of supporting the growth of any employee

    Cons

    Big weekly pay schedule is the only draw back.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    Excellent facilities, great stepping stone into the field. Highly reasonable management. Pay is slightly below average when starting out, but the tradeoff is cleaner working conditions with very reasonable hours. Hard work is noticed and rewarded, which is hard to say for most companies this size. Overall, I highly recommend.

    Cons

    Base pay is slightly lower than average, but reasonable

    Actions of management can take a while, such as when interviewing for a higher position.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly work on a system to expedite responses to individual employee's requests with management

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, good people, good money.

    Cons

    They seem to hold on to dead weight and hire back people that should not be hired back. Sometime communication is an issue as the company has grown from 200 to over 1500 in 5 years.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great End Users to work with.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible IT management. No investment in Dept. Abusive co-workers. No training available. High turn over rate. The list is really endless, what I'm saying is 100% true.

    If you want to further your career, go elsewhere. If you want a paycheck with no job satisfaction, work at Sig.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and work on becoming honest\better people.
