Good People, Bad Decisions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Portland, OR (US)

I worked at Blount International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsBlount 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.

ConsLack 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 ManagementThis 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

This is a very political company.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Milwaukie, OR (US)

I worked at Blount International

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

ConsThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
