    I have been working at ACN part-time

    Own your own business.

    Many people underestimate the value of working with such a great company, and the naysayers can try to turn you off.

    Pros

    Great company that supports the people who work for ACN. You have to work to build up your client base. Too many people think it's magic but once you have done the hard work there is an incredible pay off

    Cons

    There are no cons if you realize it's a business. How many companies cost $499 and you have your own Website. You work with billion dollar companies and you save people money on services that you pay for every month for the rest of everyone's life. I saved $100 a month on my cell service that's $1,200 a year!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work I appreciate what you do for us.

    I worked at ACN (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have nothing positive to say about this company, it is the epitome of a pyramid scheme. What a horrible business model.

    Cons

    Pyramid Scheme. It’s the energy and telecommunications equivalent to Amway. The weekly “training” is nothing more that cult like brainwashing.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a legitimate commission structure and stop changing IBOs for training

    Pros

    Integrity of Co-founders and business is first class. Unlimited earning potential for those willing to work hard not only on the business but to develop personal skills to lead more effectively.

    Cons

    Takes grit, hard work, leadership and possibly time without compensation (similar to a commission structured job) but for those willing to work and persist - significant monetary rewards are possible. "I didn't need easy - I just needed possible."

    I have been working at ACN part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Self development; flexible hours; unlimited income potential; residual income; services everyone is addicted to; very competitive rates; forward thinking; extremely positive and encouraging environment; step by step instruction

    Cons

    work at own pace (some just don't have a work ethic); negative opinions of others;

    Advice to Management

    Have events in a wide variety of places, not just the same 3-4 locations over and over. Also, put out a schedule for events (beyond 3 months); some of us have jobs that require us to put in notice well in advance.

    I worked at ACN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meetings are fun, exciting, and helps you learn how to be a team player

    Cons

    You will not make what you put into it. You will not see money, but they will take money away from you. You will get a bad reputation from your family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Change the structure so that everyone will make something, even if it is $10. This will excite them and work harder

    Time consuming sitting through hours of meetings.
    Spend your own money.

    Make employees have a garaunteed salary.
