    Pros

    A wonderful way to start on the journey of entrepreneurship. You are building your business with proven methods as well as helping others to become healthy. The products are wonderful and work.

    Cons

    The preconceived ideas that are harbored about multilevel marketing and the company in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New distributors need contact with their up-line and guidance. You must send the message that new distributors are not just a number.

    Pros

    Very international company with operations in 88 countries. Good exposure to other countries and cultures.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of uncompensated overtime which seems to be the criteria for promotions. Experience gained at Herbalife may not be easily transferrable because of the unique business model and outdated business practices. Quality of corporate staff is weak in comparison to other companies of similar size in the Los Angeles area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal systems and processes are very outdated compared to other companies in the Los Angeles area. HR department could be improved.

    Pros

    You will meet amazing people and lose weight.

    Cons

    You have to invest hours of work for a small amount of pay. The people that are successful in this company are either sponsored or have a huge social network to pull from...I.e. they are an athlete or famous. They will try to convince you that working for Herbalife has tons of perks like residual income, paid vacation, employee discounts.... There is a small % of health coaches that qualify for these perks, but the majority will never get there. If you have bills that need a stable income to get paid, this isn't for you. They'll make you feel bad for not making them a priority when all you want is to put food on the table.

    Pros

    Very good benefits (monthly discount off health insurance with the wellness program) and perks like free gym with classes. Encourages exercise and healthy living with exercise and nutrition classes. Free Spanish language classes. Casual dress/work environment. Really friendly people at all levels of the company.

    Cons

    Probably the same as at any large public company- lots of procedure for even simple tasks. "Lifers" who have been at the company forever make forward progress hard in some departments.
