    I have been working at Nutraceutical part-time (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Nutraceutical full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I worked at Nutraceutical full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

  10. If you have any creativity, you will do well at this company

    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.

    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.
