    I worked at 4Life Research full-time

    Pros

    - Great founders (sadly not there to see how bad things have become)
    - Ability to work in an international environment (most customers outside the US)
    - You can ask to receive about $100 worth of free product every month
    - Ability to buy extra product at cost (about $4 for a bottle of Transfer Factor)
    - Nice christmas presents ($100 and an item worth about $200)
    - 3 or 4 free luncheons a year
    - Appearance of company stability and growth

    Cons

    - Everything related to employee satisfaction and engagement (HR stuff) must come from the 80s
    - Management doesn't care about their employees (sweat shop mentality - work extra long hours without appropriate compensation)
    - Terrible top and middle management without a focus on people (you hear about people getting fired all the time)
    - Incompetent directors and above (more worried about keeping their job than making the company grow)
    - Low pay across the board (specially for women and latinos)
    - You will regularly hear and see executives yelling at people (specially the CFO)

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting the founders family in charge, this is very disruptive as they are completely inadequate for their roles. It is hard to engage and want to help a company that only benefits the few at the top. Stop paying women less than men (sounds like a comment from the 60s but you know it is really happening here).

    I worked at 4Life Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good location in Sandy, Utah. Easily acessesible and close to Target, Barnes and Noble, and many restaurants.

    Cons

    Like drama and politics? Like being challenged on everything you do? Like lack of structure and no real organization? Like working lots of extra hours with no comp days? Then this could be the place for you. It's too bad because this used to be a good place to work but it's gone crazy this year. Ask the person interviewing you: how many people have quit or were fired in 2016. Why have so many left? What are they doing to make people want to stay? Seriously, ask the hard questions during your interview.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Trust the people you do hire to do their jobs. Communicate with your employees. Let them know what is going on. Support your employees. Promote from within. Pay a decent salary and stop trying to get a bargain on people. People are not commodities.

    I worked at 4Life Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most the people I worked with were kind and the building is nice. Benefits were average. There were team lunches and company updates were a plus.

    Cons

    Pay was not comparable to market. No opportunities to promote, especially if you weren't part of the good ole boys club. I'll echo some of the thoughts by other reviewers. Women didn't have an equal voice or opportunity in the marketing department. I don't know if this is wide spread throughout the company or just relates to one executive.

    Advice to Management

    You have a perception problem with the way women are treated. This needs to be addressed.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at 4Life are: you get free products, good health insurance, and they have a gym on site. The buildings are closer to the trax station, and if you don't have a car it comes handy.

    Cons

    Women are treated like a piece of junk. Women are worthless in the company, unless you are related to a high executive or you are cute. Gender inequality is a huge issue, if you are not a man you don't get promoted, you don't get a raise, your voice doesn't count at all. They underpay, and if you are talented they don't care about that, the high executives will rather pay cheap and have crappy employees. Best advice for job seekers don't look for at job in this company, specially if you are woman. Their HR sucks, they "listen" to the employees, but they do NOTHING about it.

    Advice to Management

    The entire management team should be fired.

    Pros

    Great benefits, products and fun people to work with.

    Cons

    There is no where to advance in this company. The company doesn't invest in their employees and make them feel that they they are totally replacebale. Projects take for ever to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Show employee appreciation and education opportunities. Promote within the company.
