    I worked at Herbalife full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High level of integrity and ethics (Quality and R&D in particular)
    Work Life Balance has improved significantly
    Strong recruitment of talent; HR support
    Continual leadership training for managers; supported and initiated by HR
    Good pay and benefits--other perks for family members as well (wellness, discounts..)
    Was sad to leave but was re-locating to different part of the country due to personal reasons.

    Cons

    Could be more recognition for major accomplishments--company moves very fast. You need to really keep up with the pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure communication stays strong with all levels of employees.

    Pros

    A wonderful way to start on the journey of entrepreneurship. You are building your business with proven methods as well as helping others to become healthy. The products are wonderful and work.

    The preconceived ideas that are harbored about multilevel marketing and the company in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New distributors need contact with their up-line and guidance. You must send the message that new distributors are not just a number.

    I have been working at Herbalife as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    As an Independent Distributor, you get to set your own level of work. The products are of the highest grade and they work great. You get to help others improve their health and find a better way of life. The start up cost are approximately $58 USD and you get 25% up to 50% off the products. If you are self motivated, you can build your Independent Distributorship as large as you would like. The company is publicly traded on the NYSE and is doing very well.

    Cons

    Your business may grow slowly, but if it is growing, remember, you still making more money. And you still save with your discount. It is a business and you will only get out of it what you put into it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great opportunity.

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule. You get paid to get in the best shape of your life. You get to work with who you choose. You are your own boss. You get paid to help other people get into the best shape of their lives!

    Cons

    Its a very new approach to working if you have never worked in business, so it can be confusing in the beginning. It is not a typical 9-5 job where you clock in and out. But this will force you to always grow and challenge yourself.

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

    Pros

    Pay, perks, people. I support a large group and I love the people I work with, so easy going, nice and very easy to work side by side with. I hear that about a lot of the dept.s, but I have had people ask me about how to get into my dept because we seem to be nicer than most. I think it really starts at the top, the head of the dept is a super nice guy who treats everyone the same, with respect. Benefits are good, especially if live a healty, active life. Discounts on insurance for healthy habits/wight. Company sponsors a lot of athletic events that you can join in for free. Gives back a lot to the community.

    Cons

    Unless you have a good boss, you'r eprobably not going to be heard on your ideas. I'm lucky, but I see people in other dept's that are overworked and not listened to and don't feel they have the ability to say anything, Maybe I'm just not the type of person to keep my mouth shut, but I do believe it depends on who is running the dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone in the company is respected the same, most of the dept's are, but some are not being run by the right people. Stop using temps/concultants in the HR dept, makes it really hard to get good people in the door when you have to deal with 3 different people who don;t know about the company.
