Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

There was no upside to the job. There was no structure, The goal for the day was always changed dureing the day.

Cons

The company is bleeding out with temp labor. Their communication to mamgement staff is lacking. They have no foundation to build up the comapny. All their management staff was hired after they bought 3 companies and moved to a new building. They had no plan in place on how they wanted to complete a move let alone 3 new acquisitions. After 8 months into the move they still have 0 standard operating procedures and are basically winging it.

Advice to Management

To build your policies and procedures and manage your people through them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is good, and the benefits are good. These are pretty much the only pros I can think of about this company.

    Cons

    The employees at this company will stab you in the back if you're not watching out for yourself. It's a very 'kill or be killed' environment.
