    Pros

    Low stress environment. Stable company with steady management. Allows for flexibility with family.

    Cons

    Micromanaged. Little room for decision making that does not require executive approval. Tends to pay below market average.

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers, directors, and VPs more latitude for decision making

    Pros

    Worked with some great people that really seemed to care about their job

    Cons

    Senior management is the con. They seem to have very little respect or regard for those "under"them; sexist & racist to boot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and care.

    Pros

    nice pay and not micromanaged

    Cons

    Was great till Nutraceutical bought them. There were no products to sell and they don't seem to care. Their tag line was "there is no such thing as a vitamin emergency" Nice...Now how is a sales rep suppose to convey that to a good customer?

    Advice to Management

    VAXA was a great place to work until Nutraceutical bought them them. We went from having over 40 products to sell to 10 and we had to explain to customers that sorry the product you came to rely on all these years is no longer available. Nutraceutical killed VAXA!!!

    Pros

    I could not ask for a better direct manager. He is intelligent, creative, hard-working and fair. He assists in all projects and is always quick to respond even when traveling. He is very understanding and allows you to be creative and innovative on projects. I have not only had a positive experience with direct management, but each and every time I have worked with an executive directly it had been a positive experience and they have never had a demeaning manner. Lastly, the company (management, HR, & executives) has been more than understanding with my hectic work and school schedule and have been flexible and easy to work with. Great company and great employees!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a high amount of responsibility that piles up and it can be stressful, but no more than any other job.

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers were nice. Easy 8-5 job, no overtime or high pressure.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The health care plan was horrible, upper management micromanaged my work and there was a long chain of approvals--one of the most frustrating things was that I never had access to the person who ultimately approved or asked for changes to my work, it was all through verbal communication. In graphic design that just doesn't work well. It was design by committee and it shows, so many of my designs went to print looking like a crazy quilt. Nepotism abound. Religious preference abound. Oh! And if you work in a satellite office, like me, you will lose your job when you have a baby. Since these offices are not large enough to be covered under FMLA, the company would rather let you go if you're going to take that much time off (I suspect because upper management believes women belong at home if they have children, I really don't understand the cost incentive to hire someone new rather pay maternity leave, but whatever), even though they employ 2,000 nationwide and make millions every year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you know everything about every job every employee does. No CEO does, and you need to realize it's ok. Trust your employees to do the jobs they are trained and educated to do. And please start treating women better as well as anyone outside of your religion. We can see right through you. It's harming morale, creating high turnover, and it makes you a real jerk.

    Pros

    Pay was decent, coworkers are nice, offices are new and clean

    Cons

    Very high turnover in my department considering how well we are paid. Reasons for high turnover became apparent shortly after I was hired. Anti-patterns recognized as big no-nos in the rest of the IT world flourish here. These anti-patterns result in reduced developer productivity while management falsely believes it's saving them work in the long run. Very old technologies still in place and so ingrained into the system they may never be replaced. The software written in-house is so inefficient it's a miracle the end-users get anything done at all. CEO comes up with a new business rule every week which of course becomes top priority, just like last week, and the week before that ad infinitum.

    Advice to Management

    Understand how your business works, THEN relay the requirements to your underlings. Don't make it up as you go.

    Pros

    Lower management is great, flexible schedule if needed, if you just want to show up and collect a check this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, after several years of exceeding expectations I was given a .27 raise. The health benefits are a joke. Absolutely no room for advancement and long time employees have a poor view of upper management which deters new employees, the overall morale of the employees is poor because they feel undervalued and under compensated. I have never received an employee review in the near 3 years of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that they are valued with better pay and benefits. Give annual reviews so employees know what their weakness and strengths are. There needs to policies and procedures that are available to new employees. Provide better training. When new administrative staff come on board or a new acquisition takes place introduce the new employees and what their roles are to current employees. Many times I, my coworkers and my supervisor have felt lost because we don't know who to contact in other departments when the need arises. Listen to your employees and take care of them otherwise you will waste money in losing talented employees and replacing them which causes more turnover which costs money that could have been spent retaining your talented hardworking employees

    Pros

    The company was capable of making major decisions very quickly. They were very flexible with my time and enabled me to keep my family first. Most decisions were made outside of corporate office.

    Cons

    Headquarters were in a different time zone and communication was not always quick from corporate. Facilities were nationwide so coordinating documents and activities was challenging. Some odd restrictions on procurement.

    Advice to Management

    Allow plant managers and site managers to source supplies locally for quicker response time to needs and for cost savings.

    Pros

    The people working in the non-HQ locations are hard-working, passionate, and loyal employees. The location was close to my home so there was an easy commute. It offered a nice work/life balance most of the time. If you choose to work there, take advantage of the extra benefits such as the HSA and tuition assistance. Let them help you further your education. Paid time off and paid holidays are generous compared to other local, non-government employers.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a place where you feel appreciated - look somewhere else. There is a general feeling of disgruntlement organization-wide. No one makes a move without getting approval from the CEO. There is no employee recognition program...period. Even small, employee-organized potlucks/parties are frowned upon and banned in non-HQ locations. However, rumor has it that these abound in HQ. There is little job security as anyone is subject to a termination "at will" based on the CEO's discretion. Time off policies are subject to a year-by-year change. There is no set bonus schedule or commissions for sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your management, trust your employees! They have the knowledge and skills to make you successful. Don't assume you have all the answers and that you need to micromanage every decision. Having a bonus/incentive schedule or paying commissions will boost employee morale and employees will want to share in the success of the company. Don't continue to take away every perk that made it a good place to work a decade ago.

    Pros

    Good People to work with, good 4 0 1 K match, standard holiday's paid. Everyone is very understanding and easy to talk to

    Cons

    the only problem is the benefits, Health insurance is not the best better to find private insurance, I found cheaper insurance that was the same benefits that was a third of the price
