    I have been working at Blount International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The various people you get to work with and in my position that's a broad cross-section. Excellent benefits. Excellent work hours: flexible. Since it's a manufacturing company "you" are actually making something. A very broad array of employment needs. Excellent and nice management.

    Cons

    Slow upward mobility: people like the place and tend to stay a long time. I've been there over 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Create a broader spectrum of advancement opportunities.


  2. Great experience working there last summer as an intern.

    I have been working at Blount International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I feel engaged and my opinion matters. Our CEO, Josh Collins is engaged and leads with humility. I like that we are focused on continuous improvement and strive to create a cohesive global team. There is great communication within the organization. I really enjoy attending our Kaizen report outs every week and I like that these are video conferenced globally and recorded, and that all employees are invited and encouraged to attend.

    Cons

    I do not have anything I don't like at Blount.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage with your employees and listen to our opinions. Keep the lines of communication open.

    I worked at Blount International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Team environment and employee focussed. Great benefits and a very safe environment. Education paid for once course is completed and easy to get diplomas and or certificates.

    Cons

    To find a con one would have to be extremely picky. Sometimes employees would get too much input into things where it creates problems that do not need to be brought forward.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Try and reward employees that work harder and create incentives to those who show initiatives.
