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.

    Management must have received their degree out of a cracker jack box..You could be the most reliable,dedicated employee and still get a 1% raise. What a slap in the face..Blendtec Management gets rid of their Full-Time employees and replaces them with Temps which Blendtec promises to make them full time and Don't..Management Bad mouths you..Management makes a mistake, will throw YOU under the bus..Having to Sharing the Bathrooms with TRANSGENDER!!!! IS NOT ACCEPTABLE with my CULTURE!!!

    Advice to Management

    ADVICE TO TOM DICKSON !!!You Need Production,Floor Managers with a Degree and who knows how to treat and talk to their employees.. Stop Lying to the employees, Currant Management will have Blendtec bankrupt in No time.
