    I have been working at Nutraceutical

    Pros

    Flat company so people are very close to the CEO
    Low key and casual work environment
    Everyone is well educated and smart
    Innovative and open to new ideas and will guide you to explore these options and test limits and set new boundaries.

    Cons

    Little training
    Decisions can take time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training. Since employees work all over the country, hold a summit or convention in Utah on an annual basis for everyone to meet and gain ideas as a company while increasing strategy.

    I worked at Nutraceutical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant environment, easy going management team, good opportunity to learn about the supplement industry

    Cons

    Low pay considering the information you need to learn to serve the public well, with little opportunity to advance to management in the retail stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay for store sales associates, so you can attract and keep good employees.

    Pros

    There's nothing really great about this company.

    Cons

    Zero direction or forward thinking by management. You're either putting out fires at the warehouse or trying to guess at what your requirements are. Company is run by a micromanager CEO and is solely top to bottom so don't come here if you like to contribute ideas or innovate. Health insurance SUCKS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the dark ages.

    I have been working at Nutraceutical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are two groups of employees at Nutraceutical. First, those seeking complete stability; and second, those using their position as an outlet for creativity and are willing to take risks.

    The first group will always have a job, they know their day-to-day routine, and while they will always feel under-compensated and under-valued, at least they can be assured that this is a company where the finances are solid and they won't be left without a place at the table.

    The second group somewhere along the way has discovered that Nutraceutical is an experimental company. While their industry is supplements, the real purpose is to grow and develop brands in ways that are new and creative.

    If any employee at this company is willing to look at his or her position and once understood try new methods and creative ways to enhance opportunities, that employee will attract the attention of the CEO and quickly be given opportunities.

    Cons

    By its nature, Nutraceutical does not have any ladder or structure for promotion. When a manager leaves, in most cases their position also goes away. All management, director, or vice-president positions are created based on the best fit for the person that the company is working to develop. Therefore, the only way to move up in the company is to find a position where you can excel, stand out in that position, and from there a new position will be created by the CEO on your behalf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the CEO of this company is able to orchestrate and perform with limited communication, that is an ability that is his alone. Other managers should not try and replicate this style. Mangers, within their own organizations should practice traditional methods of constantly evaluating and providing feedback to employees.

    I have been working at Nutraceutical full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are fun to work with, and it may be a good place to gain experience.

    Cons

    Health insurance is terrible, unless you never use it, then you can build up your HSA. The CEO manages everything and everyone in the company. Don't plan on ever getting a raise. Plan on making less overtime with less than a cost of living adjustment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your employees bi-annually with the intent of rewarding improvements. Offer better health insurance. Automatically enroll employees in 401K and raise 401k matching. Offer more than three weeks of DTO for sick leave and vacation.

    I worked at Nutraceutical full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nutraceutical treats their employees pretty well. Decent pay, no training really for new customer service employees but it's not too hard of a job. Overall I felt very welcome and respected there.

    Cons

    No initial training really. Lots of sitting in front of a computer if you don't like that. Not a lot of holidays or time-off chances.

    Pros

    They pay you back for going to school. That's it.

    Cons

    Zero recognition of their employees. Benefits that are offered will make you never want to get married or have kids. Upper management is crap. They have people in management who's degrees are not relevant to their positions. Unless you know the owner or you go to the same church as them, you will never move up. They suck the life out of you. They take all the motivation away for working hard. They spend more money on the appearance of the building than their employees. It's the owners way and thats it. People in management have no room to do anything. If you are a creative person, stay away from this place. Even the experience from this place doesn't help anywhere else. No matter how hard you work to show your boss, he can't do anything to reward you for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the managers be. Let them show you what they learned in school. What is the point of even having a degree when the Owner himself wants to do everything. Owner needs to come down to the warehouses and see for himself what all the problems are. Sit down with your employees and ask for their advice. It's the employees that make the company and not the members on the board.

    Pros

    The work-life balance was actually pretty good as most people saw the company as a form of income and not much else. The pay was fairly good and work hours were flexible.

    Cons

    Nutra slowly takes the life out of you as there is little room to advance unless you know the CEO. Very poor health benefits that don't even meet federal standards. The company has no PTO, instead it has non-earned discretionary time off meaning if it fires you or you quit you don't get paid out for unused PTO.
