    Pros

    Company makes more sense than other MLM companies. No really sale of services, as much as transfer of what you already have which I found very reasonable. Also no need for PV points every month, etc... There is legitimate potential for money and I have seen it. I have been realistic about expectations too and am in it for the long haul.
    You get what you put into it.
    Support for people, especially in the LA market where I am has been surprisingly good. They answer my questions, emails and texts promptly. The leadership supports my honest efforts. At the same time, I am one who tries to understand and follow well.

    Cons

    You do need some people skills. Definitely, for sure.
    And having a wide network of friends and families does help, however, not absolutely necessary.
    Like everything else in life, it requires work and dedication.

    Former Employee - Mid-Level Management  in  Concord, NC
    Former Employee - Mid-Level Management in Concord, NC

    Pros

    Great place to learn. I was given great latitude to get my job done. As a mid-level manager, I was able to go months without having to consult with my boss so I essentially did what I had to do to get the job done.

    Cons

    It was often a challenge to nail down requirements for any system changes because the projects were ever-changing. Projects were typically given overly aggressive timeframes and the team worked very, very hard to meet the dates. Sometimes, when projects were almost complete, the core requirements would change. Or, projects would stall waiting for executives to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees better for working very hard and delivering truly exceptional results. Institute a profit sharing plan instead of a secretive, hit or miss bonus plan.

    Former Employee - Independent Business Owner  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Independent Business Owner in Phoenix, AZ

    Pros

    I really did save myself, and several friends, substantial money on some of their services!!!! There are no gimmicks or catches to the savings - those are real! Excellent regional and national training (If you can afford to go) - very motivational. They provide your website and all of the tracking of your customers, etc. They are honest that it does take a lot of work.

    Cons

    You can't make a penny until you have brought 2 other people into the company as business owners. It is truly starting your own business. Only get into this is you have a large network of friends, family, groups you belong to, etc. Don't expect to make a living until 3 years in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow some kind of earnings from day one. Only require one person be brought in as a business owner to make a full 100%

    Pros

    I like it due to the traveling & meeting new people, its a selfless field. You need to be self motivated.

    Cons

    The Fear of not being as good as the top producers. Always forgetting, they started somewhere too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you do.

    Pros

    Best training system for personal growth.

    Cons

    Too much time for the low residual. 8000 customers and less than 400 in residual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the comp plan. Really. Don't just make the IBOs think you're doing something for them, really do it! Time for an overhaul!

    Pros

    The management care about their employees, and support them. It's a laid-back casual atmosphere, but still a serious business environment. One is capable of learning a lot in their chosen profession, but still comfortable.

    Cons

    There really weren't any cons.
