Pros

Blount International has a good track record with employees instilling longevity and loyalty. There were many people who were 20+ years and retired and as many 20+ years and still working.

Cons

Blount International keeps employees and tries to grow them in their knowledge of company key metrics. However some people learn how to just get buy and sort of float through the system without giving 100%

Advice to Management

Blount is trying to buy certain competitors but they are in a commodities business. The bottom dollar will win most of the time. They need to innovate something spectacular and relative to their current customer base.

    Pros

    Huge cafeteria. Huge and modern workout room. Great team of people.

    Cons

    My direct manager was really nice, and very helpful. Unfortunately, s/he isn't the type of person one can share stuff with. S/he redirected it and attempted to relate a personal view or story.

    Advice to Management

    Share the 'me' time. Really listen to your subordinates. Play nice.

    Pros

    The environment is pretty good, and the most of the people are very caring and friendly. Compensation is OK. Most people who work there care very much about the company as well as the people they work with.

    Cons

    Business model is not sustainable. The competitors who are in front of them are getting further ahead, and the competitors behind them are quickly catching up.
    Senior Leadership is letting second level management ruin morale and a positive working environment.
    It has been said by said management that "This is NOT a democracy" and they have well demonstrated that by ignoring the decisions of others despite having been given "authority" to make said decisions. There is only one way or the highway at this company right now, and that way is very scary.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do their jobs!
