    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lehi, UT
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lehi, UT

    I have been working at XanGo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    XANGO has been wonderful to work for, they've given me a lot of opportunities, knowledge and friendships. There hasn't been a layoff in a little over a year.

    Cons

    The opportunities and culture that used to make this place so wonderful have been replaced with an environment of distrust and cynicism. A sad but natural effect of yearly layoffs over a period of three or four years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep those of us that are still here and don't hire who you can't afford to keep.

    I worked at XanGo part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    XANGO distributors are great people, caring, passionate about helping people

    Cons

    Company is in a decline and changed the pay plan. After nine years with them, my check dropped by half when the new pay plan was implemented. Some of the products seem to have become less effective. Hard to find and keep customers with a product that is over and above one's usual budget. They add astronomical shipping costs that make this even harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pay plan must support the little guy or all the little guys leave and the big guys no longer have a team. The pay plan has to have more money up front, not after reaching a very distant goal. Most people won't stick around that long and it's hard to look someone in the eye and say, "I can show you how to make money and live your dream with XANGO."

    Pros

    Co-Workers were fun, nice location.

    Cons

    Layoffs, Layoffs and Layoffs. It is their first choice to save money. While the executives are "recruiting" overseas. Upper management didn't even come into the office when the layoffs happened. They were "out of town on business". Terrible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take finance and budgeting 101.

    Be more transparent with employees about the state of the company and its financial health.

    I have been working at XanGo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good culture for a small company, nice people, flexible schedule, ok benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is a little on the low side. The upper echelon of the company is a bit out of touch, but it seems the management underneath them has done a good job correcting some of their mistakes and things are looking up after some massive and disheartening cuts. Is an MLM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into hybrid retail solutions.

    XANGO is not a very stable company. They would have layoffs at least once a year. 2013 they had three and there are rumors of another wave of layoffs in 2014.

    Sell the company and pay proper severance to all employees.
