    Pros

    Relatively easy work, great co workers, so-so breaks

    Cons

    Preach values they don't actually make any effort to fulfill. Poor employees are persistent due to favoritism and nepotism. Incentives are also given to employees based on the aforementioned policy. All levels of management have no idea what they are doing, they throw money at the problem and then pretend it no longer exists. Closes manufacturing facilities while funneling production through poorer third party companies and calls it growth.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what you are doing, don't talk to your base employees about practicing integrity when you have none.

    Change over in management leading towards downfall of company. Penny pinching without a clear understanding of the business

    Go back in time and remember how you got to where you are in the first place. The people that work for this company make all the difference

    Pros

    Free stuff is awesome. Benefits after 90 days. No layoffs. Just filling in to meet the 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    This DC needs a complete management overhaul, from top to bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to headquarters in NY: Visit your DC's and see what is going on. The Sparks DC is so mismanaged, it's losing money. You have managers who have multiple sexual harassment complaints, people are afraid of one manager because, if you're not of a certain ethnicity, he looks for ways to get rid of you. Culture & values are a joke. It's 'do as I say, not as I do.'

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Holbrook, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Holbrook, NY

    I worked at NBTY full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I advanced from an Administrative Assistant to Associate Brand Manager during the 10 years I was at NBTY because I worked hard and was willing to learn and be a team player.

    Cons

    So many rushed deadlines and stress and long hours. So many things are managed manually. This really needs to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the associates who "work in the weeds" like I did. You'll discover so much that needs to be addressed to increase profitability and productivity.

    Pros

    Don't have any to mention and just fulfilling the 20 word min.

    Cons

    Poor Upper Management, Poor Career development, Poor Human Resource Dept.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the associates who have helped build the success and have to watch Carlyle destroy by appointing leadership team that have had no success's. Also build up morale with more than BS internal PR campaigns. Associates are much smarter and capable than they think - treat them that way!
