    Pros

    Zija is a great company to work for:
    -Offers paid time off
    -Flexible schedule
    -Great growth potential
    -High expectations

    Cons

    -Some of the management is under-trained. Customer service has lots of turnover due to this.
    -Secretive plans/promotions for customer base that are not released to mid-level employees until last minute.
    -There is some dishonesty; top distributors get to break rules that lower end distributors are enforced to follow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all distributors the same, don't hand out favors to executive distributors.
    Create a better training program for customer service and try some retention techniques.

    Pros

    The products are great. There is nothing out there like these products. They promote health.

    Cons

    You have to buy everything yourself. The company does not supply you with anything to start the business. The profit is very low. They don't advertise at all so people have never heard of the product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider new upper management.

    Pros

    Company is team oriented.
    Promotion is based on leading and helping other, not standing on the shoulders of others
    Amazing products and they are always improving

    Cons

    Some of the company's incentives are filled with loop holes that allow the company to profit without having to reward the independent distributor.

    Example: TEAM 250 Program. If you bring in 250 new Product Volume each month your own personal order is free (but you still must pay shipping which could be $20, so not really FREE). Also you have to get 250 not 225, and 250 is usually 3 "I just want to try" However if none of those NEW 250 sign up for an AUTOSHIP, none of them count. SO you could bring in 250 NEW Volume but it doesn't count because those costumers didn't sign up for an auto shipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make incentives easier to achieve for the average person. Sure if someone does this full time and is really out there to be a salesmen they can hit all these incentives but for the 20%ers who really just share the product, all the loop holes really only benefit the company, which is not a positive image when trying to share with new customers

    Pros

    Company bases promotions and thus income on leadership and helping others.
    Personal Development in all aspects of your life are taught and encouraged to achieve success.
    Company is successful because the people in the company genuinely care about helping others.
    The companies product line is developed by the best of the best in nutritional science.

    Cons

    The Network Marketing business model has a bad rep and some people won't hear the message because of a preconceived notion about the business.
    Some of the perks the company offers are great but there are a lot of hoops to jump through to get them, then they can be easily taken away all the while the company is still making money even if they didn't have to pay you for a perk "almost" achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perks should be easier to obtain (ex Team250 should be Team 200, the extra 25-50 "new" PV makes this perk harder to obtain ( and the loop hole is if the new PV isn't an Autoship it doesn't count, this only benefits the company not the distributor))

    Pros

    Work from home, unlimited earning potential, incredible support at all levels, future growth is unlimited, self development is a key component.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides if you are ready for some hard work. Network marketing is a skill set that is learned with a good deal of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My company has a leadership team that has an incredible pedigree and a track record for success. My only words would be to keep doing what you are doing.
