I have been working at Blendtec

Pros

Blendtec has a long history of innovation and is committed to producing the best blender available. The product is amazing. The people are fun to work with and the company tries to value it's employees.

Cons

The company culture is extremely eccentric. The owner of the company is a true entrepreneur. He always has new ideas, some of which make great sense, some of which are real head scratchers. It would be nice to have more consistent direction from the top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on ideas and projects that make good business sense, not just the latest "shower thoughts". Set strong company goals that will help guide decisions. Report regularly on metrics measuring progress on the goals. Hold everybody accountable for their performance.

    I have been working at Blendtec

    Pros

    Number one in innovation in their niche market.
    Family run all American company and almost entirely American made quality product.
    You can stand behind the product.
    Supervisors are understanding and will work with you.
    Very likely the best viral guerrilla marketing campaigns conceived for YouTube.

    Cons

    Constantly changes sales platforms and compensation strategy. Not all of this is within their control.
    Not all management seems to have a good balance between what is good for the company and what is good for the employees.

    I have been working at Blendtec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good people, great products, Finally some really good top managers. Gym, profit sharing, cafeteria, medical clinic, massage, free blender, better than average pay.

    Cons

    Employee morale is low due to replacing lots of people this last two years. It did need to be done though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Eliminate wast and respect people.
