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

    Pros

    Fresh food giveaways, ample break times, benefits

    Cons

    Supervisors were treated just as bad as associates. I don’t mind a cold work environment, but it was brutally cold there. Injuries were frequent. Never enough supplies to do the job, or machines always failed. Most production plans were never properly thought through. The culture was absolutely awful. “Unlimited” time off that was offered, was actually very limited. And upper management was never around.

    Pros

    The entry level associates are down to earth and make the time fun. The pay was okay.

    Cons

    The Corporate team (founders included) and upper management were very unprofessional, rude, overly aggressive, and racist at times. I've witness GMs and AGMs intoxicated and belligerent in the middle of the day on site.

    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.

    Pros

    Great co workers, the regular staff really pays attention to what's going on and they will always help you as long as you help them.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected with the team. Upper management is always changing and promotions are dangled like carrots, but when you prove your worth they give the promotion to their favorites.

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

    Pros

    The biggest has to be the great people I worked with. All were smart, personable, and driven. I had a great manager who was always supportive and willing to address issues. Some of my former co-workers are my best friends. One of the more diverse companies I've worked for

    Cons

    Upper management is a mess. There's no direction, goals seemed to change every few weeks, and no one was ever on the same page. Major year long projects were canceled after completion because people forgot to determine if they would actually be profitable. It was unbelievable. They were never truthful. Obviously we could see that the company was doing badly by looking at the collapse of the stock price and the abysmal earnings calls. The CEO always framed it as if the market wasn't seeing something and that we were actually on the path to profitablity. Obviously not, because the stock is now a penny stock and still sinking. Morale is at rock bottom. Before and after the second round of layoffs (Nov 2018), tons of important employees left the company. Within weeks of the latest layoff, 5+ extremely important engineers left. There's no money to hire anyone and those that are experienced have either left the company or are looking. They're outsourcing to fill many of the positions, which is a red flag. Benefits weren't good. No 401K match and ok health insurance. Honestly would be shocked if the company is around in two years.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time

    Pros

    The "associates", if you will, (non-management positions) are mostly wonderful, smart, supportive people. Snacks Blue Apron discount

    Cons

    Profit-over-everything became the clear approach since a few months before the IPO and it definitely affected the culture and work environment There is very little recognition and it relies mostly on whether you're liked or not. They started an evaluation process that is very hypocritical and one-sided, assessing performance in relation to the display and application of company's values when achieving your business goals, when none of those values are displayed towards, or in the benefit of, the employees Very little equality and almost no diversity, especially in upper management C-Suite is horrible at managing expectations and this stems from very poor communication Morale is very low and there is a pervasive feeling that there is no interest in improving it
