Some of the processes changed frequently, making it difficult to retain them.

    Pros

    Minimal road traffic, no traffic jams

    Cons

    Corporate culture of incompetence, cover ups and intimidation. Self aggrendizing and self indulgent senior management uses intimidation and fear mongering to rule. Lies and cover ups used by chieftains to maintain their status quo in fiefdoms. In-fighting, gossiping, constant scheming and intrigue-mongering among senior managment to mask own incompetence. Superficially "friendly" culture is in fact very hierachical with highly privileged and entitled directors and VPs. This leads to a widespread waste of funds and resouced at the Dir and VP levels and lack of accountability. Disdain, bigotry and intimidation tactics practiced daily and tolerated in the main global headquarters (Ada, MI) in global Marketing and HR as well as in other areas. No recourse following terrible employee survey results (up to 30% below industry average on key satisfaction metrics). HR ignores complaints brought in by employees suffering from verbal abuse and habitual bullying. Favoritism and nepotism mastered to perfection towards the in-crowd. Business strategy replaced with flavor of the week or a month pet projects leading to weak results at very high costs and lots of internal noise to self promote responsible chieftains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the bullying!

    I have been working at Amway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Because this company is network marketing, them and other companies advise you to read personal development books, that many school, and jobs will not have. The missing link most people do not into hand is that Amway is a vehicle to develop you into a Big Business leader, that is a different animal than small business. The R@D is great, the products are quality and high end, and for all that goes into them to me they are fair priced. The company is not public, therefore most leadership will not often change. They owe no debt, they are also i n many countries. On the commutation side, they invested millions on main stream ads: Miss America some years, NY Fashion Week, InStyle Magazine, ect. On the legal: they hold many patients infact easily somewhere between 1000 to 7000. They also hold contract with Partner stores for example: Paul Fredrick, Sears and more. The company is also apart of BBB and DSA. Cashflow is the independent sellers around the world, as well as owning a hotel in MI and the Orlando Magic.

    Cons

    If you are use to being an employee and or small business person, the learning curve might be great for u, this is one reason the Amway business, and or network marketing business as a whole by many is viewed. For many the Robert Kiyoski books might be your only way to see the value of the business, as a lot of people quite dude to lack of financial education, wanting to get money fast and so on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am in the postion of learning to find the right people for this world. You have to allow your self to see what type of people this business is for, are they teachable, and be the gate keeper to info to them from the top of the company on down. I am an IBO, and you have to also check your leadership style and see who is for u.
