    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, not too much stress, management works to make the workplace comfortable and to facilitate what employees need to do their jobs.

    Cons

    Budget was tight when I was there, so it was sometimes hard to get some software tools I needed if they were expensive. I was trying to get a particular business intelligence software but there wasn't budget for it at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much. I would say continue to invest in getting the right employees as well as providing them with the resources to do their jobs. Continue to facilitate collaboration and employee involvement among different departments with events like lazertag and such.

    Network Marketing Business Incompetency in both Co-CEO's (Dave Bagley and Joe Voyticky)

    Pros

    Great products. Wonderful opportunity to help the health of others. The vast majority of the people in middle management and base employees care about their jobs and the company. We do our best yet are hindered by lack of budget monies and denial of problems from top executives.

    Cons

    Top executives are not good leaders for a network marketing company - they are attorneys. They ignore problems continually brought to their attention. They seem to think people will go away if they ignore the problems - any many do leave over it. They don't pay their field associates accurately or consistent with their pay plan. They give new sales tools to selected field associates only. Middle management does their best but all everything needs executive approval - which is rarely given. You are considered a non-team player if you try to bring problems to their attention. They only want to hear the good things - none of the bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Co-CEO's (Dave Bagley and Joe Voyticky) and put someone in here who understands what we need to do our jobs well. It won't take long for more people in the field to realize they are not being paid consistent to the pay plan. Better hope people don't compare payouts or there will be many, many unhappy associates.
    We are tired of taking the blame with the field for top leadership incompetence.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Easy to get time off
    Decent Pay

    Cons

    Where to begin?
    Constant unresolved Shipping Issues resulting in angry customers
    Management is never around nor helpful if they are around
    People take hour long breaks while clocked in
    They hire based off what their resume says and not based off skills
    The company is divided by separate floors and they treat each other like dirt
    Company issues are reported but nobody cares to make changes
    I'm glad I left because this place is probably not going to make it much longer
    Co CEOs which means complete disaster

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and make some changes before it is too late!

    I have been working at Max International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Have food and snacks in the break room. No working on the weekends. They are very flexable. They seem to care about their employees. The job is super easy. There is usually no side work, if you are not on the phone, you are able to do pretty much anything you want.

    Cons

    I like the company, but the people you work with are worthless and lazy. I've personally seen guys and girls I work with take 2 hour lunches and 1 hour smoke breaks. Management does nothing about it either. The "account managers" sit and play Facebook games all day. I remember one time I called over to an account manager because one of their associates was on the phone asking for her. She didn't pick up but I knew she was at her desk. So I called her again, and once again, she didn't pick up. I then walked over there and she was on Facebook playing some bubble game. The "customer service" employees are lazy as well. They will stay logged out of the phones because they are too busy watching their TV shows on their computers. A LOT of gossip goes around as well, and you better be a part of it, because it not, you will be outcasted. I guess that's what you get if all the people you work with are in their mid-20's and have no education. I know I listed a lot of cons, but I do like the company. They treat their employees well, BUT I think many of the employees are really lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some structure for crying out loud. Your employees are lazy. If someone comes in 30 minutes late, do something about it. If someone isn't working, do something about it. I people are taking 2 hour lunches, do something about it. It makes it harder on the people that actually do work. Also, get rid of the "account manager" position because customer service ends up taking care of their associates anyways. There have been countless times when a silver or diamond associate has called me and they don’t even know who their account manager is. The account managers think they are big shots when they are really just customer service and make 14 to 16 an hour.

    Stable but uninspiring. Complete lack of corporate leadership. Great opportunity for Associates.

    Pros

    Coworkers are cool and fun to work with. Good work environment in general with emphasis on appreciation for contributions. Upper management cares about their employees and Associates. The products are unsurpassed and change peoples lives. Associates are appreciated and valued.

    Cons

    No leadership from upper management. Executives lack a coherent strategy and seem incapable of setting, measuring and achieving non-employee created goals. They have no accountability but to themselves and thus feel no pressure to perform. These statements are meant for corporate success and not the success of Associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand-up and give yourselves public goals for company performance and make yourselves accountable for achieving (or not achieving) said goals. These goals must be your own and have an impact and you cannot blame external or internal influences for making or breaking the results. Concentrate on strategy and avoid the minutiae. No more pet projects.
