    I have been working at Melaleuca full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro was the free product check every month. Every other "perk" was designed to make you feel obligated to devote your every waking hour to the company in exchange.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The company feels like its employees owe it their lives because they are so gracious enough to provide employment. Upper management does not value the opinion of middle management or lower employees, even though said employees have specific expertise in certain areas. Career paths exist only if you are buddy-buddy with the right people. The company says it wants innovative ideas, when in reality, they are stuck in the "this is the way it's always been done" mentality. It is a brain-wash culture, just as the independent sales executive side is. You only succeed there if you believe Melaleuca is god's gift to the business world. Raises are based SOLELY on upper management's evaluation, but if you have no interaction with upper management, you have no chance of getting a raise. They live in an industrial-age mindset where they actually track what time you walk into the building and what time you leave, and weigh your performance review more on that than on what you actually accomplish in your job. Just overall backwards thinking.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire middle managers, let them do their jobs! That's a novel idea.
