Pros

Great products. You really feel like you're helping people. Especially when we hear SO many rave reviews about out products and how they're helping people.
Good opportunity for growth. You just have to be a participant and help make it happen. Most managers are always open to new ideas. Especially the new upper mgmt team.

Cons

We are coming out of a 2+ year struggle so some people still feel a little insecure about things. However, things look better and it's an exciting time. Lots of new adventures around the corner.

When you go the extra mile (or two!) it doesn't seem to be appreciated much. Seems l like it's just expected to put in 12 hour days if necessary. Most people don't mind but once in a while you have to feel like someone has noticed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Check with the worker bees more often. Everyone's putting forth 110+ effort and we need to know it's being acknowledged and appreciated.

    Finally, we have a strong CEO--one who "walks his talk!"

    Pros

    Healthy Directions does good things for people. Their products are high quality, and they know what's hot in the marketplace.

    Cons

    The company seems to have lost direction. They got behind the marketing curve in the early 00s, and they don't seem to be able to catch up. Much of what's going on now seems like desperation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at long-term goals, not just what will make the next quarter's numbers look good. The strategy from 10 years ago was sound, it was just the execution that was faulty. There's no need to go hunting for a new strategy.
