Blount International Reviews
50% of the CEO
Joshua L. (Josh) Collins
Pros – -Feels like a family at work, people really dive into the work, great company in the Pacific NW, with a great reputation.
- Great experience
- Josh Collins is a great asset to the company along with most of his senior leadership team.
Cons – - Old Boy style progression of employees
- The product amount to limited growth in a commodity market, and efforts to break into to new segments has been lackluster. Efforts to grow through acquisitions have been hit or miss.
Advice to Senior Management – - Think long term, and look for competitive strategies regarding investment in manufacturing excellence. Management is too focused on short term solutions, and the progressive managers are ostracized, and isolated.
- This company has so much potential to be truly world class in a lot of aspects, but needs world class talent in the middle ranks.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Blount has fairly competitive salaries, good benefits, great people to work with, high percentage of long term employees, and ongoing education opportunities if you are seeking an associates or bachelors.
Cons – Lack of flexibility with work schedule, poor advancement opportunities, horrible communication/collaboration between departments, extreme low percentage of women in management positions, knee jerk reactions in decision making leading to frequent failure
Advice to Senior Management – This company is management heavy with a bunch of yes men. Listen to your little people, they do all of the work and have great insight on long term goals.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
“it was wonderful until we bought companies and decided to move. NOW no one knows what the hell is going on. T”
Pros – was wonderful before the move. pay ok
Cons – you won't get promoted for hard work. if you can plant your lips on someones ass then it might happen
Advice to Senior Management – your workers make you or break you. and now you are broke
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.
