    I have been working at Herbalife

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Leadership 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.

    I have been working at Herbalife

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    You 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!

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

    Pros

    You have full control of your time, your actions and of your business. It's an excelent opportunity for people who want to build a career.

    Cons

    You have to work hard to get better results, it depends on your effort and dedication. Sometimes you may have clients that doesn't dedicate themselves as you do, and you'll have to teach them to do the right things, or at least try to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have more people at the distributor relations call center. Sometimes we really need to speak with soneone at the call center but they don't have enough people on the phone.
