    I worked at Amway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people; love their company and the Grand Rapids area; devoted to Amway's founding values of self-determination, opportunity, etc. Great place if you want to stay and grow with the same company for many years; everyone is open to the idea that you'll switch roles and teams more than once for the sake of personal growth and satisfaction. Great place to feel like you are cared about by the company.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganization as well as seemingly from-the-hip organization means strategic change is difficult to accomplish; as a result, many inefficiencies within the company. Often vulnerable to "death by meeting" but that's counterbalanced by good people wanting to achieve good outcomes.

    One of the biggest employers in GR by a longshot, which means competition - the healthy kind that would keep the company continually improving and testing itself - is in short supply. Also a bit of a disconnect between how employees perceive the company and how "the rest of the world" perceives the company. Can make some projects less than effective as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Need a clearer sense of how HQ staff relate to regional staff; avoid territorial conflicts by providing clearer guidance on reporting structure globally.

    I have been working at Amway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees at Amway are honest, collaborative and innovative people. I have never worked with such great people at other jobs. The company is fair and values the employees, so it is a "win-win" for both. Amway is a truly global company that addresses the needs of consumers in so many different countries around the world. Their products are the highest quality, thoroughly tested, and actually provide the benefits promised.

    Cons

    There are a few "lone wolf" employees that don't share ideas or collaborate. These employees can be difficult to work with and Management doesn't address this issue. The performance evaluation system "force" ranks employees of the same job grade level against each other. This conflicts with the collaborative or team approach to completing projects. Hence, the few "lone wolf" employees appear to be accomplishing more work and are ranked higher, even though they don't deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for collaborative work instead of individual contributors.
