    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

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act. Communicate with your staff.

    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 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.
