    Good employees, but poor executive direction.

    I have been working at MonaVie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Pay is good.
    - Co-workers are great.
    - The opportunity for strategic growth and training is currently amazing.
    - Hopefully a foundation is being built that can turn things around.

    Cons

    - C-level management either doesn't know how or doesn't want to change, so things stay the same so far ("you can't teach an old dog new tricks" comes to mind).
    - Some c-level doesn't understand how to lead people in modern business. It doesn't work to say "I'm the boss so do what I say" anymore. Doing that, you'll just lose the ones who are any good.
    - Current lack of communication throughout the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to the employees who are providing feedback or voicing concerns... They are trying to help.
    - Decide on a path and stick with it. Don't try to do all opportunities all at once. Do one thing and stick with it so it can succeed.
    - CEO needs to lead his team.
    - "The quest stands on the edge of a knife---stray but a little and it will fail. Yet hope remains while the company is true..."

    I worked at MonaVie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training and the benefits were good, but the leadership was just okay. They tried to give back to the community and they tried to make peoples dreams come true.

    Cons

    The company used to be very generous and created a great culture, but that didn't last too long. Once Management gave a younger family member a chance to honor the family name.....While the young family member made significant gains in operation efficiency, he ruined the whole Support Department. Once the best support center in the state with the lowest turn over rates was dwindled down to just a couple of the same employees.

    The CEO did try to pull a good to great on the company as he often spoke about, but I wouldn't say the people who left were the wrong people on the bus. There really isn't much you can do with the low paying positions though so I couldn't say I had a better answer.

    I experienced this a couple of years ago. Def take my review with a grain a salt and see whats happening there currently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being positive to life as you tough many to do.

    MonaVie is a good company to work for but the network marketing business model is semi-predatory in nature.

    I worked at MonaVie full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The compensation is above average and there are opportunities for promotion within the company. Many people have moved up into different ranks. There usually was a need for competent IT personnel and programmers since they were hard to keep. The customer service department can work from home which is a big plus. It seems like with the new leadership taking hold they are eliminating some of the problems.

    Cons

    MonaVie has tried to reinvent itself several times over the past 3 years. This has lead to somewhat of an identify crisis and there has been a big turn over in management. The pace of new initiatives has been somewhat frantic and helter-skelter which has created the feeling of always being in emergency mode. The biggest negative about working for MonaVie or any network marketing company in general is the failure rate of distributors. It is difficult to see how few distributors actually make money and most of the hype and the hope that is sold doesn't pan out. The business model seems quite flawed since so few distributors actually make money.

    Never felt secure...

    I worked at MonaVie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Allowed telecommuting, good benefits, in-house health clinic. Occasionally got to travel to foreign countries when we were opening up a new market.

    Cons

    Always big changes around the corner. Never felt secure in employment. Cut out basic break room supplies like paper plates, plastic utensils, etc... The company made lots of backroom deals with big time distributors that were forbidden to the average distributor. Lack of ethics.

    Pros

    Cafeteria on Site
    Starting to invest in Leadership Training (weekly session)
    Health Benefits, Medical on site, The Basics

    Cons

    Salary lower then average
    Tactical company day to day, no strategy, and their plans seem to be more throw stuff up on the wall and see what happens. Weak people on C Level and in Regional roles. Politics, typical MLM BS, whatever happened to good quality service and product and operations? This place has so many problems it's almost impossible to prioritize what to do next. The good news is if you are willing to help fix them you have a job as long as they are around. This is a weird place to work if you are not from the Utah LDS Breed or Right Wing Conservatism mixed with Holy Acai Juice that is really powder that may or may not be healthy.
    Old Technology and Innovation is lacking. They had to outsource jobs to keep cost in control and also removed a lot of jobs in 2013 and early 2014. The problem is they didn't get rid of people that caused the downslide of the company and cash problems. They are still there acting like everything is ok and it isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the advice of your Turnaround Experts and Advisory Board. Mynt may make it but right now only popular in limited single wards in Utah County. The rest of this mess we just need to clean up and get some talent and expertise to make things happen quickly before we run out of time and money completely. Fire Brasil Management and start over. Fire EU Management and Start over, Fire 3 people on C level that are not "Mynt" qualified and too old to even turn on facebook on their mobile.

    Pros

    Free monthly product, tuition reimbursement, relaxed environment, awesome middle management

    Cons

    Leaders micromanage because they don't trust middle management to manage projects, no standardized processes (frequent chaos), leaders are swayed by peer pressure to make bad decisions (this is slowly improving), redundant use of multiple systems to achieve the same goal,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do their jobs or find new ones, don't do it for them.

    Pros

    The Medical benefits are good, there are also on site doctors, and a cafe that gives employees a discount. There is also an option to work from home which is nice.

    Cons

    The Management is okay, it seems the call center has no value to upper management and they don't care much about the people there. Direct management doesn't care much about its people either. The culture sucks, and so does the salary and compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the employees more, change the culture to be a fun environment rather than stressful one. Better compensation.4
