    I worked at Amway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, nice workspace, great cafeteria, good people. Better than average benefits.

    Cons

    Disconnected management. Say they value employees but don't show it. To much focus on managing the business than actually doing the business. Lots of "theater" to make it look like things are happening. Many of my former co-workers are jumping, the company had a downturn, cutting a lot of the best people. Don't value or know who the best are, the management is to busy trying to keep their jobs or get ahead that they under cut the people doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the people, the people doing the work. Get the management to focus on their downlines and instead of the KPIs, Reports, and getting a bonus.

    Great company. A lot of opportunity for advancement. The company invests in it's people and the opportunities are limitless.

    Very conservative so often keeps workforce to bare minimum leading to taking on a lot of extra work. Health insurance is very poor compared to how it used to be and compared to other companies. Premiums are quite expensive.
