I have been working at Blount International

Pros

They offer good benefits. They have employee events, like Ice Cream Wednesdays, costs 0.75 per scoop, and yearly picnics and other things like that.

Cons

No bonus plans. I have never met more rude people at the manager level and above since I started with this company. Everyone is waiting to stab someone in the back. I haven't worked here long, and don't intend to for much longer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop encouraging the atmosphere of politics.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Solid, regular work, good benefits, open to improvement and change. Good working culture with a desire to meet and exceed goals.

    Cons

    Management can be rigid and often misunderstand feedback as complaints. There is not much room for advancement unless you curry a lot of favor for years. Even with a combination of experience and education, you are likely to be passed over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent when you have it and cultivate that.
