Very high turnover rate
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Vernon, TXApril 17, 2019
This place has some serious issues. They hire guys that are not fit for their position so it creates performance issues on the job and a larger workload for the other co workers. They constantly hire an fire foremans and project managers so at no point will you ever have a boss that will remain there long. You will build a good working relationship with your boss then out of know where they will fire him and bring in a new guy that is clueless. There's definatly a buddy system going on in the office and upper management looks at the rest of the help like field fodder. They will buy lunches and make fantastic, illustrious speeches and tell everyone what a family they are but allow special favors for one person and then lay off another without any notice the very week before Christmas. Trust me blattner cares only about the profit margins, and they will run threw however many people it takes to get the job done. Not to mention they pay the lowest hourly of all the wind farm companies
Pros
Per diem paid 7 days a week regardless if you only worked 4-5 days
Cons
Restricted your overtime hours and low hourly. Also no room for advancement and very clique

Great place for a single guy.... Not a family man.... You'll never see home.
Mechanic/oiler (Former Employee) –  Avon, MNApril 6, 2019
The wrong people get promoted, very clicky, hardley any days off, 70+ hrs a week get some Sundays off... You can make money but it's not for a family man..... Most management (Foreman's and up) are useless and lazy.... I did twice the work of my co-workers, have twice the brains and get paid $10 hr less... They say they are family oriented but they are not. They will send you across the country on your dime just to lay you off shortly after! Yet they have foremen that get company trucks, paid housing and do virtually nothing... Overall very poor place to work if you want a career unless your a single alcoholic
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Management, career opportunity

Field Engineer (Current Employee) –  MNApril 2, 2019
Great cause to work in renewable energy! Expenses paid, living, travel, etc. Good pay. Hours can be very long sometimes up to 70-80 hours a week. You get plenty of time off though, a week off every 3 weeks. Also great bonuses!

Lowest paying company in the industry
Foreman (Current Employee) –  TexasApril 2, 2019
If you are looking to get experience come here. You don’t even need to know what a hammer is. They will hire you. You will not get days off for home time. Get the experience and leave like everyone does. This company has turned into the joke of the wind industry. Only thing the superintendents are worried about if finishing early so they get bonuses. No raises. Just ask around before going here
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
Terrible foreman and lazy superintendents.

Management is very unproffessional
General Foreman (Former Employee) –  Avon, MNApril 1, 2019
Not a good place to work at all. Superintendants want the foremen to ride people and it is not right to yell at a hand that has not been on the job three days because he is not able to keep up with seasoned crew members.
Pros
None
Cons
Everthing about it, Lots of drug use and unsafe

Mistakes Continue
Superintendent (Former Employee) –  NationwideMarch 25, 2019
Great individuals join together to become great friends, through exhausting job demands. It’s a shame that the work force employed by Blatter is lacking in talent and professionalism. The amount of turn over is unexceplable. Mistakes of the upper few have effected many of the operations (field staff) folks horribly over the last few years. Many still believe in this company, myself included. The individuals that run this company at a high level came from the field; it’s time they return. Decisions go on measured, in need of quantifiable goals.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Work life balance, unsustainable lifestyle at the field level

Long Hours Decent Pay
Asst. Electrical Supt. (Current Employee) –  Avon, MNFebruary 3, 2019
Blattner Energy is a good company to work for if you are early in your career and do not have a family. I have been on the road for four years and will be with them for another two or three. If the schedule demands you will be working 80+ hours a week and are on salary. Good benefits and rotation program.
Pros
Per diem, rotations
Cons
80+ hour work weeks during the summer when on salary
