This is a very political company.

I worked at Blount International

Pros

The pay is good, and the benefits are good. These are pretty much the only pros I can think of about this company.

Cons

The employees at this company will stab you in the back if you're not watching out for yourself. It's a very 'kill or be killed' environment.

    Pros

    Blount International has a good track record with employees instilling longevity and loyalty. There were many people who were 20+ years and retired and as many 20+ years and still working.

    Cons

    Blount International keeps employees and tries to grow them in their knowledge of company key metrics. However some people learn how to just get buy and sort of float through the system without giving 100%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blount is trying to buy certain competitors but they are in a commodities business. The bottom dollar will win most of the time. They need to innovate something spectacular and relative to their current customer base.

    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.
