    Pros

    Quality of the place and structure to work (equipments, tools, etc), people relationship, listen people

    Cons

    Resistance to change, long term employees consider too much changes in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on track to assure the future of the company. Give more empowerment to leaders and remember to consider cultural differences between countries

    Pros

    I feel engaged and my opinion matters. Our CEO, Josh Collins is engaged and leads with humility. I like that we are focused on continuous improvement and strive to create a cohesive global team. There is great communication within the organization. I really enjoy attending our Kaizen report outs every week and I like that these are video conferenced globally and recorded, and that all employees are invited and encouraged to attend.

    Cons

    I do not have anything I don't like at Blount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage with your employees and listen to our opinions. Keep the lines of communication open.

    I have been working at Blount International full-time (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.
