    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited time off, employee discounts and weekly farmers market

    Cons

    Management, leadership, employee morale, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Blue Apron is a company with potential but lacks by hiring the right candidates. Management is not properly trained and lack support. Operation team schedule endless meetings but fail to actually discuss topics that matter. Upper management do not take on responsibilities and fail to lead by example. No career opportunities are available unless you are an associate, in which you can be promoted to a floor supervisor.... Morale is at an all time low, employees are disengaged and dissatisfied.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the employees are the best you will ever find at a company

    Cons

    Growth is only available if you are favored by upper management. Rock the boat and you are put in the dog house. Communication between upper management to lower management is horrible. You are asked to do a higher role constantly and not get paid for it, or get anything for it. Then once the role is over they throw you back to your regular role and tell you, you don't meet their expectations at the end of the... year.

    Pros

    Great co workers, the regular staff really pays attention to what's going on and they will always help you as long as you help them.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected with the team. Upper management is always changing and promotions are dangled like carrots, but when you prove your worth they give the promotion to their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Get reconnected with your good employees. Get better upper management that doesn't just let good people leave.

    I have been working at Blue Apron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food every week Casual work environment Relatively straightforward work most times Easy to move up the food chain Many small perks The place for you if you want a challenge from changing work objectives

    Cons

    Still a young growing company. Blue Apron suffers from a lot of growing pains. Inexperience in many positions. Incomplete policies that only cover parts of the situations. Insufficient training for supervisors. Not the place for you if you don't want to be challenged by changing work conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Management is too top heavy. There are too many layers between some staff and decision makers causing decisions to take time before being made. Local management is great and approachable for the most part.

    I have been working at Blue Apron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    Internal Promotions are based on personal preference and not measurable KPIs. Ther is an inner circle that seems to get promoted. It is a regular practice for employees to be asked to perform a job for several months without compensation or promotion.

    Advice to Management

    MGMT has done a poor job of recognizing internal talent. The hiring track record is terrible.
