    I have been working at TriVita full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally friendly place to work. Code of conduct forbidding abusive behavior. Products of good quality. Mission of company (our wellness) makes good sense and has great potential business-wise. Facilities and Wellness center of good quality. Management and executive staff not tyrannical, dictatorial, or compulsive in their behavior. Location is good but in an expensive area.

    Cons

    Don't apply with a background in sales-bad fit. IT, web development, e mail marketing, or MLM experience for better pay and opportunities. Career path nowhere. Whatever you come in the door with, you better be happy doing. No skills or career development programs. Company is not at this time running at a profit. Bonuses and pay raises currently on hold. Many employees commute in from far parts of the valley because their jobs don't pay enough to let them live in Scottsdale.Shoot for larger and better capitalized companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain a sense of recognition of the good talent that comes through the door to work in the call center as a start and give them the opportunities to grow in their careers and gain skills to increase their value to the company. Instead, most talented people find jobs elsewhere. Stop hiring the good jobs from the outside and bring people up the ranks from inside-give them a sense of value. Bring down the turnover. New outside hired managers don't understand the culture of this business, have destroyed morale, and increased turnover, not contributing to the profits of the company.

    Pros

    The company mission is awe inspiring, the CEO plays the role with passion but lacks the integrity to back it up.

    Cons

    Senior Management up to Executive Leadership is all very dysfunctional. Most departments do not "play well with others" and senior leadership is constantly contradictory to mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shore up your infrastructure! Live and execute your mission through your employees... Value your assets and cut your losses on leadership that is driving your purpose down.

    Pros

    The pay is great for the work you do and the people you work with are great. Also, you get holidays off!

    Cons

    Sales are hard to keep track of and numbers can be difficult to meet. Quality assurance expectations can be difficult to meet as they are changing monthly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your expectations a little when it comes to QA and sales metrics. The moral is suffering.

    Pros

    Nice building, wellness center, facilities, etc.

    Cons

    Leadership is terrible. Hours are not flexible. There is no morale among the employees because people are in constant fear of being fired/"let go." How can you be optimistic about your job when 25% of the company was LAID OFF at once?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horses! Stop being political and fake. You're supposed to be leaders...

    I have been working at TriVita part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    At TriVita everyone has the oppportunity to align with core values that will pay forward to the employees, the sales staff, and the world at large. I meet the most amazing business associates and those people who work on the corporate level work in synergy with the sales/field staff. Thank you to everyone at TriVita --- all of whom make it possible to stand apart from the rest of the crowd!

    Cons

    The only "con" would be to NOT be involved with this company on some level!

    I have been working at TriVita

    Pros

    They have really great products, the people are great to work with, the work environment is nice and even has a really nice gym.

    Cons

    They need a better leadership team. It is common practice for the management team to start major projects without doing any market research and are always under very tight deadlines. Once the project gets launched and does not do well in the first few months, they tend to kill the project and start a new one. Makes it very frustrating that for all the hard work and effort that gets put into these projects, that they get killed right away, which makes it difficult to have any real wins and have any sense of accomplish and/or success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start capturing the right market data so that you can review your customer list and develop persona's that make sense. Target and segment your customers accordingly and put the right tools in place so it makes it easier for the Marketing Team to do this type of work instead of having to rely on IT support.

    From a management perspective... Do some house cleaning! Need people that have experience in other organizations that have been successful and know the right tools to help this company become an even better success. Lifers are great and all, but lack the outside/real world experience and are hindering not only themselves, but the company as a whole.
