Pros

Blendtec has an awesome product and an amazing manufacturing facility.

Cons

Due to corporate restructuring and a growing turnover, employee morale is on the decline. Additionally, rampant nepotism makes advancements very difficult.

    Pros

    Very innovative. Trouble getting customer excited. Some nice on-site perks: Fitness Facility, Cafeteria, Clinic.

    Cons

    Very volatile middle management. Most last 18 months to 2 years. Takes to long to bring products to market.

    Pros

    Company has potential to become GREAT!

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Let's work together! Let's build the company!
