      Pros

      -A lot of nice people -Free product each month for employees -Potential to be so much better

      Cons

      -Hands-off and unengaged management makes it easy to skate by without doing much at all. -Nothing but lip service paid to corporate social responsibility. -No diversity in positions of leadership, and little diversity anywhere else. At least they added the prettiest female VPs to the corporate site. Interesting to note which female VPs they didn't add. Too bad they don't even have any people of color or other minorities to shuffle onto the corporate page. -Internal communication, policies, compliance is almost non-existent. -No clear standards for work performance, career advancement, salary ranking, etc = the key to success is being good looking and knowing the right people. -Not uncommon to hear upper management parroting conspiracy theories; making racist, homophobic, sexist, misogynistic comments. They really should be better, or at least know better. I guess that is just how deep the toxic masculinity goes here.

      Former Employee, more than 5 years

      A resume builder with a bad culture higher up the ladder

      May 10, 2021 - Digital Marketing and Communications Manager in Sandy, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - A good place to start building a resume. - The group insurance policy isn't bad; comparable to other companies. - All employees, regardless of position, receive free products each month. - The customer service department makes every effort to take care of its staff.

      Cons

      - Upward mobility is dependent on who you know rather than qualifications. - Unpaid overtime is expected of salaried employees, even on weekends. - Salary is equal to 40-60% of what other companies pay for the same position. - Communication and cooperation between departments is poor. - Many leaders do not establish expectations or provide proper training. - The culture very much comes across as an every-man-for-himself environment.

      Pros

      Mediocre product at a significant discount for employees.

      Cons

      There are good reviews, there are bad reviews, and there are very bad reviews. Unfortunately for 4Life, good reviews are strongly encouraged by upper management and almost every positive review you will see is somewhat "forced" and culturally encouraged by the very people responsible for the bad reviews, primarily the CEO who has been in place since 2017 and has been primarily responsible for this company's sad and rapid decline. There are a handful of people who are still at 4Life who have somehow managed to avoid removal who are probably genuinely good people, and should not be blamed for their own self-preservation despite these drastic cultural changes imposed by the inner circle of third-floor favorites. But the only way 4Life would ever return to its "glory days" of good culture, financial success, and international growth would be to clean house, re-hire former losses, and take a long introspective look in the mirror, but that is highly unlikely under current management trajectory. 4Life truly was an amazing place to work until about 2018, when like falling dominoes, those who sought the best for the brand were systematically replaced with those who sought only the best for the CEO and the up-and-coming familial ownership legacy. Ripples were felt across the globe as new directives in marketing, branding, and leadership took root for no other reason than some odd form of individualized ego-based attention and stage-time focus. Lawsuits were avoided with secret contracts and agreements, well-established and well-liked employees were let go with no notice or explanation and later referred to simply as being "overpaid," replacements were based on stroking the ego of the new CEO, and especially, familial desires so prevalent in the Direct sales industry. These are the shadowy truths of any Direct sales company really, and 4Life, despite a sincere desire to think of themselves as different, really is not. It takes years to see this, and should you be fortunate enough to make it into this ego-stroking inner circle, understand that should that favor waver, or should you too quickly excel and approach the unspoken salary cap, you will have devoted years of your career to something that ultimately, like so many others, you have nothing to show for. Even amongst the Direct Sales companies 4Life is considered sub-par, so the commitment of time vs. benefit is sorely lacking even within an already volatile and toxic industry. I gave 4Life years and years of my life. And like so many others, have little or nothing to show for it. Least of all appreciation or acknowledgement from the company or its founders. So read between the lines, proceed with caution, and determine if you have the space on your CV to spare....

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are so many opportunities for people who show initiative and go beyond their job responsibilities. They have activities for the entire company very often. Taco trucks, Christmas parties, and recognition lunches. Small events like these really make you feel like they care! You can talk to anyone in the company without feeling intimidated. It feels like an open space where ideas can be shared. The culture of hard work and encouragement of ideas is what I loved about this place the most.

      Cons

      It can be challenging to get ideas across and into action without going through a few rounds of approvals first.

      Pros

      I made some of my best friends to-date at 4Life and conventions were always super fun

      Cons

      I always felt that if I didn’t have an influential upper management person on my side I didn’t matter. I saw how many people who lacked knowledge, expertise, and leadership skills were given promotions just for the simple fact that they got along with the right people. Can’t tell you how many times I sat through meetings knowing that managers did not have an idea of what they were talking about but they just knew how to say things to make themselves look smart. There’s also a lot of hostility in marketing, they don’t act like a team with the same vision, or goal, but more like they want to prove like each team is the “better” team.
