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.

    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 worked at Blendtec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great positive environment
    Your success is recognized
    Management is open to your ideas
    The bistro and gym
    Blender perks and discounts
    Easy to get time off for vacation or other needs

    Cons

    Raises and bonuses were not practicable at the time
    Progress was slow, if felt like when we took a step forward, we also had to take 2 steps back

    Advice to Management

    Just keep swimming! I hope all the good things I was able to be a part of, will pay off soon
