    Getting better every day to inspire others towards their dreams while also moving towards mine

    Independent Distributor (Current Employee) West Bend, WI

    ProsNumber one nutrition company in the world; positive organizational culture of sharing success and being healthy; independence; opportunity for people at all levels: very part-time, part-time, and full-time; ability to be in business for yourself but not by yourself; nutrition, science, and business training all the time; this is the only company that has ever told me "I can" with the support to get there. Low start-up costs; consumable goods; business that can be passed down as inheritance to family.

    ConsNo guarantee of income, which depends on variables: personality, network of connections, communication skills, and time put into the marketing methods. That is why most people start part-time while working at their full-time (or other) job(s). Non-traditional approach to marketing can make sale difficult as people may be skeptical because of opinions. Entrepreneurial activity: no healthcare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going with sponsorships and all positive visibility of the brand! More product trainings on science behind the products.

    Making money WHILE changing my own life as well as others? Who wouldn't love it?!

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Edmond, OK

    ProsGood money, few hours, easy to do, easy to use

    ConsGetting started is super confusing, but once you get the hang of it, your only problem is trying to find clientele. Once you've established some clients, it's super easy.

    Great culture, great company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    Pros- Strong executive management
    - Great work / life balance
    - Casual work environment
    - Everybody, from the leadership down, works
    - Great autonomy
    - Support ongoing training / education
    - Supports an active lifestyle

    Cons- Salary / Raises could be more competitive
    - Can be very political
    - Strong culture, so you're either in or out
    - Benefits could be better

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership is strong but HR has too much say so when it comes to promotions and salary increases. Management should have more control over their departmental growth and reward.

    Herbalife Rocks!

    Director, Finance (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    ProsThe culture within the Finance department is very good. People are competent, work hard and are collaborative. I find the senior management to be very competent and bright while still balancing strong personal skills. For the most part, people here are well grounded and everyone treats one another very well. I think the compensation is fair for a company of this size and the benefits are strong as well; such as an ESPP program to purchase Herbalife stock at a discount of 15%, health care benefits and the ability to purchase all the products at a 50% discount.

    ConsThere is somewhat of a stigma working for a multi level marketing company, but if one is secure with who they are, then it is not much of a factor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the strong communication to the workforce in regards to how the business is performing and the challenges we face.

    Get out what you put in

    Independent Distributor (Current Employee) Cape Town (South Africa)

    ProsYou determine your hours and the income that you want to earn. The compensation plan is very generous and the company training events and vacations are great!

    ConsIt's not a get-rich-quick scheme and if you aren't generally a people person, you might find it a bit challenging.

    Personal Wellness Coach (Current Employee) Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

    ProsHerbalife has the most wonderful balanced nutrition which is suitable for all human needs

    ConsIts business model is based on network marketing/direct selling which isn't really acceptable by a small portion of people in the world

    Advice to Senior ManagementWell, nothing really, keep up the good work as this industry is definitely booming!

    ProsI feel very happy to be able to help our Malaysian community to have better health and vitality everyday and a bonus when able to change their lifestyle and financial everyday

    ConsWe need to cope ' ethically ' with unethical Herbies, who would prefer to be ' Sales'man/woman, rather than a Herbalife Coach!
