    I worked at Amway as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of support for interns, and tthe projects for interns in all departments seem to be meaningful and important to the company's real goals and needs. Mentors provide resources, training, and any other necessary tools for success.
    Fairly good work-life balance, only time spent working after normal hours is on presentations.
    Great office environment, very friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Very results driven and fast paced. Steep learning curve for anyone who has not had experience working for a large global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and conversations about potential full-time hiring, throughout the internship and even as early as interviewing for the internship.

    Pros

    Strong benefit package with superior travel accommodations - your needs are well attended to when traveling for Amway

    Cons

    Culture shift away from loyal, long tenured employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit the companies past growth - did it come from new "every 2" employees - or those loyal, deeply rooted and passionate staffers who took the time to learn and grow to love the business model and its distributors.
