    Pros

    Working on your own time, team helps you be successful. Working for a good cause while developing new friendships. Great compensation for those who work hard.

    Cons

    Beginning can be overwhelming while training. First 30 days need to get promoters on board. Some people will take off and do well and some will not. Have to continue to replace those who drop out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let promoters know that it is hard work to make huge salary.

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

    Pros

    -Relaxed dress code
    -Nice employee gym on site
    -Very little emphasis on titles or hierarchy (for salaried staff)
    -Smart co-workers
    -Free product for employees
    -Cool office space

    Cons

    -No job security (2 rounds of layoffs in a 1 year period, approximately 20% of employees first round, approximately 15% second round)
    -Pay cuts for current employees
    -Low wages for hourly staff
    -LOTS of nepotism
    -2 out of the 3 founders are more about themselves than the company, 1 founder seems to work hard for the good of the company
    -MAJOR sales slump, no clear plan to turn it around
    -Positive reviewers here seem to be mostly promotors (outside sales) who have to be positive in order to get people into their "downlines"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the flavor of the shake mix, products are not compelling enough for folks to want to pay those prices for them on an ongoing basis.
    Put together a stronger long term strategy for product roll-outs and get supply chain issues under control.
    Good luck.

    Pros

    If you work tirelessly you can possibly make some money

    Cons

    You have to go and get promoters constantly, and the only to move up is to get promoters to pay the minimun of $500.
    Hard to make any money!
    The main product is a soy based protein, which is not best for the body.

    Pros

    You are able to work from home and set your own hours. The company is supportive with training, product knowledge, provides forums at the home, city, state, and national levels.

    Cons

    Difficult to substantially grow your own business, as you need to maintain customer sales and keep obtaining new reps on your down line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure.

    Pros

    On the surface, Visalus seems to be a great company to work for with their gym and nice building.

    Cons

    The leadership is completely full of themselves. They talk about being "transparent", but reality is every move they make is full of bitterness and inner-strife. Leadership could care less about the employees. The company is failing miserably, but they just spin it to the outside reps that they are making "tactical moves". They took away almost every employee perk that made the place tolerable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding what you are, but then again, you are like the story of the Emperor's New Clothes, aren't you?

    Gotta live the Vi Life..LOL

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at ViSalus full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Great people
    Great work environment (nobody yelling or screaming)
    Great health benefits

    Cons

    Flexible work hours come in price - depending on which department you are, you are expected to work pretty much around the clock and be on call on weekends
    Unless you are part of the "clique group" don't expect to be on a non chopping block no matter how skillful you are
    Too many disorganization sometimes could be very overwhelming - like spinning the wheels endlessly. It gets better as time progresses.

    Pros

    The upper level management really seems to care about their employees. A lot of employees hang out outside of work. Great environment if you like to work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication between upper level management and lower can be lacking. A lot of us are left in the dard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication about what is currently going on in the company.

    Pros

    This is a company with vision and a solid mission to help others succeed. They are focused and constantly evaluating progress and making changes as needed.

    Cons

    You will find those who expect to just bring home a paycheck and that's just not how life works. Follow the system and listen to your upline and you will succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue training the new enrollees, they are what will keep the momentum going.
