    Horrible Upper Management

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values

    Pros

    - Great Discount
    - Some departments work well together but very minimal.

    Cons

    - If you're not a "Yes Man" you won't last. If you don't agree with upper management, they'll find a way to get rid of you.
    - Horrible CEO.
    - Poor benefits
    - A lot of finger-pointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get rid of your CEO and Upper Management. They bring in people that used to work at the same company so it's like you're working for that company rather than Arbonne.
    - Don't consider Arbonne at all. They'll make it seem like it's a great work environment bu it's not. High turn-over especially in Marketing.

    Pyramid Company of Independent Consultants

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Independent Consultant  in  Westport, CT
    Former Employee - Independent Consultant in Westport, CT

    Pros

    No experience necessary
    Make your own hours, but must be full time to make money
    Free Training
    Online order process and tracking

    Cons

    Few people want to host home parties or join the business.
    You have to meet a monthly quota of products and have people join as consultants underneath you.
    People avoid you because the company philosophy is to bombard everyone you know or come in contact with about Arbonne.
    Not many people purchase again, they mainly buy because a friend or family member hosted.
    You have to give 8 presentations a month but there is no guarantee on the about bought at a party.
    Most people only buy one product which is only $400 per party and of that you only make 20%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train people, help new consultant overcome obstacles,

    Pros

    Employee Discounts and the great employees who have been there for years and know what is going on.

    Cons

    Performance is not recognised and decent raises are not existant. management has spent millions on a new website that does not work and continually lies to its consultants. The upper management is so lost and is one by one firing its employees who have been there for years and only has new employees who do not understand its business are leading the company into no where. There sales are back to what it was several years ago when an IT staff of six provided more support than there cureent staff of 50+ employees. They need to stop wasting there money and support there consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees who know what is going on and get back on track

    Pros

    Quitting, hour long lunch, parking

    Cons

    Scheduling, raising hand to use restroom, ridiculous multiple managers for each department with no authority, iron fist management offering low moral and no skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your management choices will have a direct correlation to what kind of staff you have. Angry management makes for miserable high turn over.
