    I have been working at Blue Apron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the people I work with in my department are open-minded, considerate, and hardworking. The environment also allows a lot of opportunities to see how a medium-sized company works, and to build skills.

    Cons

    The company at large seems to be deeply mismanaged, and as a result has a high turnover rate. Several rounds of layoffs, and departments don't seem to communicated shared visions or responsibilities very well.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the employees are the best you will ever find at a company

    Cons

    Growth is only available if you are favored by upper management. Rock the boat and you are put in the dog house. Communication between upper management to lower management is horrible. You are asked to do a higher role constantly and not get paid for it, or get anything for it. Then once the role is over they throw you back to your regular role and tell you, you don't meet their expectations at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the good people you have, or you Will eventually lose them all.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Weekly Farmer's Market. At least 3 days free. The Quality department supervisors are very comprehensive and supporting.

    Cons

    General management does not care about employees. Not enough internal communication. HR department does not know how to make decisions fairly. Exploiting and stressful environment. Way too much Required Time Off, can't make enough hours weekly. Coworkers are too aggressive, the workplace is not very safe. Supervisors and managers are not very professional.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication to satisfy employee needs. Take workers personal lives into consideration before making sudden schedule changes. Hire employees with better qualifications and a better background. Actually care about drug screening tests before hiring.
