    Current Employee - Independent Distributorship in Crosby, TX
    Current Employee - Independent Distributorship in Crosby, TX

    I have been working at Herbalife as a contractor (less than an 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. You can learn more at https://www.goherbalife.com/deanweis/en-US/Page/5.

    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.

    Current Employee - Executive Assistant in Torrance, CA

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Independent Distributor in West Bend, WI

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Number 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep going with sponsorships and all positive visibility of the brand! More product trainings on science behind the products.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Getting 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.
