I have been working at Blendtec full-time

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 Management

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

    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best blender around. Love learning and Implementing lean manufacturing principles. Love the people I work with. The business has made changes for the better and headed in the right direction. I just love my job and coming to work. :-)

    Cons

    I don't really see any cons just opportunities to learn and grow from. :-)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good TEAM work. I know I enjoy seeing upper management come around and get to know who we are. :-)
