    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time

    Pros

    I love my job, the work environment is fast paced and innovative. A pro is definitely that most of the employees I interact with seem to have a great sense of comradery and purpose. The company also has great benefits and a beautiful HQ.

    Cons

    A fast paced work environment can sometimes be stress full and a bit hectic. If this is not an ideal environment for you, I would not suggest applying.

    I have been working at Sig Sauer full-time

    Pros

    Gun discounts and free coffee.

    Cons

    I’m only taking the time to write this so hopefully someone else won’t get screwed over by Sig Sauer. Management is very dysfunctional. A lot of the long term employees came from Goss so they stick together. The ones without degrees are the worst because they are so unprofessional. Bullying and clicks are found in every department.

    Fingers are always being pointed. Everyone that isn’t in the CEO’s inner circle is scared shitless of him. When your boss feels that they can motivate you by fear since that’s the culture there you need to find another job. My manager was useless and blamed everyone else for his mistakes. After a while you get very tired of defending yourself. HR is useless. They just hire and fire. I would stay away unless you don’t mind working in a toxic work environment.

    HR will respond to this with a generic message. It’s because they know they have serious issues with management. Rather than address them they will just blame others, fire then, hire another sucker and repeat this same process until they have ran out of poor suckers to take advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team and maybe say thank you to your employees who go above and beyond. Give credit where credit is due. Slow down on large contracts and take the time required to pursue lucrative weapons contracts instead of chasing every contract under the sun. You are burning good people out and not removing the people in your organization who make things harder. With unemployment being at an all time low you will lose a lot of good talent if you keep treating people so poorly.

    Pros

    Clean and great people on the floor

    Cons

    You never know from day to day what is going to happen. Management,expectations and standards change weekly. They tolerate a culture of bullying and harassment on the supervisor level. HR is a useless joke
