I have been working at Blount International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The various people you get to work with and in my position that's a broad cross-section. Excellent benefits. Excellent work hours: flexible. Since it's a manufacturing company "you" are actually making something. A very broad array of employment needs. Excellent and nice management.

Cons

Slow upward mobility: people like the place and tend to stay a long time. I've been there over 6 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a broader spectrum of advancement opportunities.

    I worked at Blount International full-time for 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.
