HIGH TERMINATION RATE

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Blendtec full-time

ProsCompany has potential to become GREAT!

ConsCompany thrives in a CHAOTIC, high termination, "let's fire everyone" mentality! Blendtec is going through massive restructuring and terminations. The CEO resigned in October 2013. The President was terminated last week.

The current rate of employee terminations is 10-12 per week. October 2013 termination total was 41 employees out of 250 current employees with plans to continue downsizing. Blendtec just let go of their entire customer service staff. Their reasoning is to bring in temporary staff.

Several employees have experienced a reduction in salary of up to 50%.

Blendtec could easily be a billion dollar revenue, but lack of solid management and poor forecasting has caused the company to be "reactive" not "proactive" culture

Advice to Senior ManagementLet's work together! Let's build the company!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Orem, UT

I worked at Blendtec full-time for less than a year


Pros: I loved working there on the assembly line. The company, management, and human resources care about you. The CEO, not the owner, even sat down… Cons: I felt like the supervisors and line leads, although they generally were nice people, were very untrained as far as leading people. And that… Advice to Senior Management: Train your line leads and supervisors to treat your employees… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

He always has new ideas, some of… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on ideas and projects that make good business sense, not just the latest "shower thoughts".
