    Pros

    Great culture of collaboration and helpfulness. Good place to end a career if you enjoy the midwest mentality. The company works to ensure employees are happy and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    lack of empowerment as leadership is often promoted from within and does not let go of functional expertise

    Advice to Management

    Less is more, 20% of your employees are doing 80% of the work.

    Pros

    I used to be an employee back in the mid '90s and, then, I became a freelance up to the present time. They are very considerate to their employees and contractors, and provide you with every single helpful tool for you to perform your job at your best. The pay is excellent and always prompt.

    Cons

    None that I can think about!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Amway (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will not find a better group of people. Collectively this is a group that can (and does) do anything.You're dealing with a truly global enterprise here.

    Cons

    The management that was in place in the 80s and 90s needs to retire. They are losing new employees quickly to the companies that are going to allow casual dress, working from home, and not such a ridged management structure. Additionally, the pay/benefits, while not bad today - is not what it was years ago. Not unlike many companies, when benefit cuts started, it became a race to the bottom. "Who can provide the least bad benefits?"

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees to do their work in whatever way works for them. VPs, it's time to let your directors and managers manage, provide them the support to do their jobs.

    I have been working at Amway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team is great and the hrs are great. All you need to succeed is the drive and positive attitude! The amway attitude!

    Cons

    No challenges just a lot adaptability and patience. The only con will be the volume and intake of people on a daily basis but if you are a people's person then it will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fun events like golfing, team dinners. Very light hours.. Could usually leave at 3 or 4.

    Cons

    Very little work to do. Company doesn't take the interns very seriously and give real responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Give interns more responsibility. Taking the college undergrads more seriously could actually yield some positive project outcomes.

    Pros

    * Great environment to work in * A lot of training opportunities * International Travel * Management cares about your personal success and grooms employees for leadership

    Cons

    * Slow moving company (aircraft carrier vs small race car analogy) * You always have the sense that leadership has hidden agendas for departments, such as contracting out work instead of in house growth (in I.T., that is).
