    I have been working at ACN full-time

    Pros

    ACN is a fast moving entrepreneurial organization. Good dedicated enthusiastic employees who work had regardless of level.

    Cons

    In general there is a lack of transparency in decision making. Sometimes the company takes itself a little to seriously. The culture is centered around Independent Business Owners (representatives who pay to sell ACN services). The IBOs have considerably clout in how the company operates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees as much as Independent Business Owners

    Good Solid Company with 20+ Years in the Industry

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Concord, NC

    I have been working at ACN full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All the health benefits, 401K, bonus opportunities are good, like you would expect from a company that is now making nearly $1 billion annually. With around 1,300 corporate employees worldwide there is plenty of opportunity to get hired for your area of expertise, or to be promoted within when changes are made or mid level employees leave. The 4 owners are good people who are still involved full time every day in all the important decisions, so they do not leave everything in the hands of executives. Plenty of travel opportunities can be available if you want to be part of the event team that runs the big company conventions. Working with a variety of other partner companies, as well as the top-producing independent business owners, is good foundation of experience for future vocational endeavors.

    Cons

    I would say you can expect the standard cons associated with any bigger company, as you lose the small company personal feel. Often many projects are going simultaneously, and some projects are given very short timeframes for completion, which can lead to issues that have to be fixed after launch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Longer term projects, with less rushing would be good for many employees. More stable dependable annual bonuses or holiday bonus would be a nice treat, instead of the profit sharing bonus that is unclear until well into the next year.

    I worked at ACN as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great building. Nice people and rushed cook outs

    Cons

    Not enough agents to work and QA is very petty. Highly frustrating trying to get a supervisor to take escalated calls. Agents working 3 peoples job for peanuts. Hard to grow within the company unless you are sucking up to the manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more agents to cover the calls to ensure overall quality

    I have been working at ACN part-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    Laid back work environment, good benefits, set schedule and room for advancement

    None that I can think of. I have been totally satisfied with all of the perks and work environment and hope to work there for many more years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard work is always the key to success, by seeing successful coworkers gives you an opportunity to succeed yourself.
