    "Herbalife"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    I get to travel around the world, planning extravaganzas for 10-20,000 people. I keep all my miles from flying, and corporate pays for business or first on all flights.

    Cons

    The office is very political. Your networking is valued much more than your work product. People play on relationships with each other, and are negative towards intelligent hard workers who might be laking in their social skills.

    Advice to Management

    Intelligence, ability, and work product should be valued higher than social networking skills (although also important). Employees should not be praised for leaving for a 3pm cocktail break downstairs and building a better relationship with some of the directors and managers, over one that stays at their desk and works hard for the company.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive; good product discounts

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, no work-life balance, upper management preaches "work smarter, not harder" - middle management says "just work more", a lot of favoritism shown be the department head, people seem to get promoted based on how well they are liked, not by their performance

    Advice to Management

    The executives need to look at how the Accounting department is being run and how unhappy the people are. 99.9% of the staff stay there only because the job market is tough and they can't find another job or they have no life outside of work.
