    Pros

    Really relaxed, laid back environment. They change executives like they change their underwear, but it is overall a good company. They're just kind of starting up, so hopefully they will be better in the next 1-2 years. They offer insurance -not the best but it's pretty good if you don't have any at all. They provide lunch on Fridays too!

    Cons

    Many of the departments are not in sync which can you leave you confused and out of the loop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would really help, if all departments were on one accord. Also, test out things before implementing them.

    Pros

    Working at DrVita.com has been such a pleasure. My team is hardworking, productive and supportive. I feel that my work is truly appreciated and I am not afraid of sharing my thoughts and opinions to benefit the company as a whole and our customers experience. I love that I can stand behind our products, as I use them everyday. Overall, I am highly satisfied and have no complaints.

    Cons

    Communication and project organization was a little shaky when I first began working. However, with our new management hierarchy and morning meetings in place I have seen vast improvement. Let's continue to grow together!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Free pizza on Fridays, free vitamins and supplements, great friendly people, great work and plenty of it to keep everyone occupied. A quickly growing company and a startup environment that works well for people who enjoy working in many disciplines and on a wide variety of projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes disorganized communication between departments. The startup environment is definitely not for everyone so there is more turnover than usual.

    You are expendable, and that's how they treat us everyday.

    Pros

    Free pizza Friday
    Co workers are good

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't provide direction or training. They just bark orders and demand results without understanding the process. They provide no structure either. There is no compassion for their workers, because we are constantly threatened that we are expendable. If you think it's you, it's not, they've gone through several teams in less than a year, and that's not a coincidence. Constantly make bad business decisions to which we constantly get punished for. They never jump in and help us clean up their mess. Instead, they just pile more on us. It's unbearable and unrealistic. We sometimes work 7 days a week and upper management gets in late and leaves early. If there was a real HR department, I would have shared this with them instead.

    I see the one star reviews from past employees on here and I have to say that NOTHING has changed and I regret not seeing these reviews before taking the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect!

    Pros

    The relationship between employees and management is excellent . Executive management listens to our ideas and inputs, motivates and empower my team members and me. The management team celebrates our success and shares credits with their team members.

    Each and every Friday employees are invited into cafeteria for Pizza .Team members are valued as a part of the business, not merely people who work for the company.

    The best place to work for in Vegas !

    Cons

    Non productive and poor performance is not welcomed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at DrVita full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My coworkers were talented, hardworking, and nice (but they are all gone now, all of them!).

    Cons

    This company has a high turnover rate, and for good reason. It's honestly the worst work environment I've worked in my entire life. Long work hours, high stress, low morale, negative attitudes from executive management, they all take their toll on the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up realistic expectations. You are a start up company, and you will not hit the numbers that the industry leaders produce. Firing employees because you're not hitting those unrealistic goals will only damage your progress.
