    Pros

    There were none that I saw.

    Cons

    Hard to know where to start, but it all stems from the upper management (chief suite level) specifically with the Chief Merchandising Officer. They have no idea what they are doing. They have no experience in the supplement world and are driving an already struggling company into the ground (their previous work experiences come from exclusively failing businesses). And it’s business nepotism at its finest got them their jobs. Several of them are the most disrespectful human beings I have ever met. Most are not openly disrespectful, while others have said such unbelievably harsh and brutally mean things that it takes you back to the 1950 types of bosses. And you can't complain to HR because they don't want to say anything negative about the management with a fear of being fired. You must respond to an email or message from upper management within a minute or you will be verbally bombarded. And requests that would normally take longer periods of time to work on, are expected within minutes as well. Most all the valuable employees have wisely left for other opportunities. Whatever you do, please do not work here until they clean out the entire upper management, unless you want mental trauma from a brutal culture and harsh work environment. If no changes are made, the company will go under sooner than later. (Jas, who did have supplement experience, is no longer the CEO, but is on the board of the company)

    POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES BEWARE

    Jun 16, 2022 - Senior Buyer/Planner in Boise, ID
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lower level peers were intelligent, hardworking, and easy to work with.

    Cons

    An absolute nightmare of an organization. In all my years in supply chain, this was easily the worst company I’ve had the misfortune of working for. Upper management degrades and belittles employees, and instills fear and stress at every opportunity. The company has been on a downward slope for a couple of years now, but last year they brought in a new CMO that will certainly be the final nail in their coffin. I would be absolutely amazed if they’re still in business a year from now. No matter how badly you think you might need a job, hold out. Do not accept a position here, no matter the lies they feed you to get you in the door. Just don’t do it. Find us former employees on LinkedIn and we will help you find a different job if need be!
