Pros

The company produces quality nutritional products, which is why they're more expensive than others, and it has a solid foundation in research and development

Cons

The management team, including the owners, are dictators who lack any true leadership skills and have no professional integrity or wisdom. They treat employees like slaves and have unrealistic expectations.

The owners are always pushing to release new products, expect employees to "jump" and change their schedules at a moment's notice to work overtime (even on weekends!), and employees are not compensated in any way, shape, or form for their hard work: no paid overtime - not even paid lunches or dinners during overtime hours.

Management expects new employees to learn by mind-reading; no training is provided; and when new employees make mistakes, they're dismissed (figuratively and literally). Nothing less than perfection is tolerated.

And employees are crowded together in tiny areas like sardines or work at tables in the warehouse. Yes, it's true! There are hidden cameras and microphones, and management spies on employees' electronic communications. They jump to conclusions without asking questions or trying to resolve issues. Paranoia!

Management behave like high schoolers with their clique mentality, huge egos, juvenile gossip, and methods of exerting professional exile on those who "don't fit in."

If you like working in a highly dysfunctional environment, then this company is the place for you. Otherwise...RUN!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get sensitivity training and check your egos.
