    Pros

    The benefits are great. Whether it be health, dental, vision or 401K contributions they do help the employee offset some costs, as well as distribute funds to employee retirements based on the company performance.

    Cons

    Calibration does not promote teamwork. There may have been a need of such a performance method the first year or two of the role out, but now it is hurting moral and self worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Calibration piece of the Performance Review. After 7 to 8 years using this method, you are now losing great talent as someone always needs to be at the bottom of the list.....regardless of their performance.

    I have been working at Amway

    Pros

    The values and principles upon which the company was founded via the 2 Founding families, Freedom, Family, Hope and Reward. .

    Cons

    Leadership is hired from outside versus promoting from within- lack of ability to advance. Bonuses paid out using antiquated bell-curve "levelling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to the talent and loyalty that exists in your workforce - there is much untapped and unappreciated talent there.

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

    Pros

    I have been impressed with the amount of resources and training that are available to me.
    Work and home balance for employees is important to management.
    Conference rooms are wired to make your life easy. No reserving projectors.

    Cons

    The onsite cafeterias could be better. The food is unexciting and the lines for food and to check out get long.

    Pros

    Lots of room for promotions and moving up in the company. You are given a lot of responsibility and what you do with it is up to you.

    Cons

    not really any to name. Sometimes you must work long hours and it is not the most stress free job, but the pay is well worth it.
