    I worked at Pharmavite LLC (more than a year)

    Pros

    Approaches outside relationships in a professional, friendly manner- - treats them as a partner. Always paid in full and on-time, which is very much appreciated by smaller agencies.

    Cons

    Marketing team members seemed like they were somewhat over-worked. Quality assurance, legal, and product development employees had the company's best interests at heart (trying to protect the company) but struggled to embrace new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to treat outside partners with respect (which includes paying them on time-- thank you for doing this). Challenge employees to think about "HOW could we do 'x' or 'y'" instead of just coming up with reasons why a particular idea won't work.

    Pros

    Work environment is relaxed compared to other sites

    Cons

    Limited room for growth and development; lack of willingness by management to allow for exploring new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company will suffer in the future if the management continues to display a lack of flexibility and willingness to listen to the people who actually do the work

    Pros

    Safe place to work if you are a "yes man" and don't care much about long term productivity

    I have been working at Pharmavite LLC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company is over-staffed in some departments; which means little will be required of you so you can just relax. I highly recommend this to people who have suffered burn-out from being over-worked at other companies.

    Cons

    No chance of promotion from within. This company values longevity above all else; when introducing yourself to new bosses, you have to stand and state how long you've worked here. Which is ridiculous, because your doing this to the newest guy of all. And the 30yr+ employees are very much over-paid and playing the system -- I know 3 women who contribute next to nothing, clocking in early every day for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop going after the big-name school graduates. Once in place, they are laughing at you because so little is required of them. My last supervisor called Pharmavite, "the greatest social program in the world". He had nothing to do. He already had his masters, I advised him to use his free time to get a pHD,

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

    Pros

    A lot of very nice people (peers, managers, and some upper management), fair pay, casual dress, a highly educated workforce (Bachelors and Advanced degrees), most people work hard with the exception of a few deadbeat managers (see below)

    Cons

    Long-time, jerky deadbeat managers who have had multiple complaints against them by various employees and who do absolutely no work; they continue to just collect an easy paycheck while work is instead given to subordinates. Even with numerous complaints, these long-time jerky managers are retained and continue to treat their employees like poop.

    These are managers who are a double-whammy- they do absolutely NO work and just pretend they are working, and at the same time, they are jerks to their employees who work hard. These managers pretend to do work and will take credit for the work the employees are doing. When interacting with their superiors (upper management such as a Director or a VP), these managers put on the charm, but upper management has no idea how these managers treat their employee and how they do no work.

    Also, why are all the new hires in VP positions coming from Proctor & Gamble?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many managers in the company, and it's time to clean house- start with the managers who have had numerous complaints against them! Why these managers are still retained even after numerous complaints is disheartening, and HR needs to listen. These managers are destructive to employees' morale and have caused destruction to employees and the department; they should NEVER have people under them! Upper management and HR needs to start monitoring and auditing what these managers are doing and what kind of work they actually do. If the company wants to save money with a reduction in force, that is where they need to start!

    The company pitches diversity when it comes to experience, but all of the new VPs seem to be coming from P&G. It's starting to look like existing management who came from P&G are bringing their "friends" into the company.
