I worked at Blendtec full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very innovative. Trouble getting customer excited. Some nice on-site perks: Fitness Facility, Cafeteria, Clinic.

Very volatile middle management. Most last 18 months to 2 years. Takes to long to bring products to market.

Advice to Management

Trust the people you hire, they are trying to grow your company!!! Spend money on advertising your innovations and technology!!!

    I worked at Blendtec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working there on the assembly line. The company, management, and human resources care about you. The CEO, not the owner, even sat down with me once and chatted about a product idea I had. He showed me that they take everything into consideration. Gym, cafeteria, benefit options, free blender, decent pay, opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    I felt like the supervisors and line leads, although they generally were nice people, were very untrained as far as leading people. And that the qualities that the corporate management and human resources should also be lived by them. Yet this may be a problem with many great companies.

    Advice to Management

    Train your line leads and supervisors to treat your employees as great as you do!

    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 Management

    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.
