I have been working at Amway as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

People are friendly and like to enjoy themselves at work while staying productive. Leads and Managers are friendly and will try to work with you as best they can to your schedule.

Cons

Start as a temp and have to get hired on. And they do not hire part time permanents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to keep those who are working hard that are also going to school bu offering different opportunities to work full time or accept part time workers if they are good at their job

    I have been working at Amway full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Extremely competitive salary and employee "rewards" (read: parties, lunches, free products, etc.).
    Privately held...so not as accountable to shareholders...but this is double-edged; for the C-suite changes direction frequently; such that frontline employees joke about the "direction" du-jour. To see the smiles and hopeful looks on distributor faces alone can be rewarding if you're willing to brave the cons listed below.

    Cons

    This is a relationship-driven company through-and-through. That's their business model on the outside and the same on the inside. Most commonly used metric: "How happy are the IBO leaders?". In other words; are we giving them what they want? Frustrating to any college-educated employee who was schooled in having to demonstrate business metrics, at least so it is in North America. Which in of itself lends to the credibility issues and unbalance in IBO leader treatment (including financial rewards). To work in this environment, you must be willing to take your marching orders and not disagree or challenge your upline/manager. Keep your mouth shut...and you'll do just fine and earn a very nice income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are abundant...leaders are extremely rare here. Simply put, you've yet to earn employees trust. Unlike other organizations with great leaders; you've managed to violate each of the 13 Behaviors of Highly Trusted Leaders (see: Covey). You're in-fighting and micro-management style is stifling creativity; accompanied with an unbalanced performance review system is creating silos and protectionism.
