    I have been working at Herbalife full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for yourself as a distributor is amazing, especially when you get to the point where you can replace your previous income and do Herbalife full-time! Incredible lifestyle, incredible product results!

    Cons

    Learning to manage time on your own, without a boss or "work schedule" can be a serious learning curve.

    I worked at Herbalife part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work at your own pace/schedule, minimal starting costs, great community, quality products, good opportunity for basic sales experience

    Cons

    Highly competitive, sales are targeted at friends/acquaintances in the beginning, and difficult to sell products without a large network. Some Herbalife health coaches have questionable business practices. Frequently coaches try to sell the business rather than the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful not to allow Health Coaches to push the business instead of the products. Many coaches make most of their money by signing people up to sell rather than by selling products.

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time

    Pros

    Positive, energetic, diverse, modern and motivating are just a few of the words that comes to mind when describing Herbalife.

    Herbalife is everything the advertise about themselves. That means a lot to me. Working here you see the extreme effort to provide the best product on the market.

    This create an atmosphere where everyone including myself buys into doing everything possible to help in Herbalife success.

    Cons

    Not really not a lot of cons.

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Solid C-suite
    Good attitudes of staff in general
    Good benefits
    Some folks can work from home
    Distributors are super enthusiastic

    Cons

    Message from really good senior leaders doesn't always make it to the staff
    Some ineffective managers
    Distractions in the media

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give all your VPs 360s from their staff and read the reviews. This is a culture about continuous improvement and by asking all your leaders to do this, you will get a lot better understanding of how your teams are viewed.

    I worked at Herbalife

    Pros

    The work from home opportunity is great if you are motivated. The tools that are available to help you succeed are fantastic. The earning possibilities are endless. Herbalife products are FANTASTIC! I lost 50 lbs and felt the best I had ever had since I was a kid.

    Cons

    The start up and time management needed to succeed is a great thing if your full time job and family life isn't already full.

    I worked at Herbalife as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a decent company to work for but a lot need to be changed first starting with management

    Cons

    No work-life balance whatsoever, favoritism, backstabbing, politics, arrogance and ignorance of the managers just to name a few

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition for all the hard work employees put in. Development of better work-life balance, workload reduction because only when your employees are happy and not burned out productivity increases

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
