Current Employee - Manager in Santa Monica, CA
Current Employee - Manager in Santa Monica, CA

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

Pros

- great benefits
- great salary
- great people in the lower ranks
- work/life balance is good

Cons

- office location is on the expensive Westside of LA; since you cannot commute in LA you have to pay high rent for living
- does not really support home office
- nepotism
- COO cuts whatever is a threat for his bonus
- great products but very sensitive to economy (consumer products)
- no thinking about sustainability
- very aggressive marketing strategies
- IT infrastructure and vendors are inefficient patchwork

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't hire and fire. People changes their lives for you. Think before you open the doors for new members of staff.
