    I worked at Herbalife (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great marketing team especially marketing supervisor. Delicious cafeteria on-site with complimentary Herbalife shakes to keep working through long hours. Stable and steady workflow with very cool bilingual coworkers. Nice hours and company team building outings. Very strong Herbalife culture.

    Cons

    Departments overlap as well as communication and responsibilities, sometimes made more difficult with teams located in other buildings.

    Advice to Management

    Take on more full-time employees and grow an already great office culture.

    Pros

    IT department has good people. Knowledgable and freindly. Most play well with others.

    Cons

    Pron to American layoffs. IT department is very oriented toward India. In 2011, Herbalife built a brand new, from the ground up, Computer department in India. Moved a lot of it's IT activities there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more US citizens

    I worked at Herbalife full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With my background in MLM, I will say Herbalife is backed with a lot of experienced employees, above average perks, and ample amount of funding for projects.

    Cons

    - Middle to Upper Management are so backwards. My VP didn't even know how to type. My Manager had double my experience but had no idea how to lead a team. This wasn't the case with all departments, but many are this exact case.

    - They treat salary and hourly employees the same. Expect calls at 9 PM or a text from a team member.

    - I was basically used as a scapegoat on so many projects. As mentioned before, management has no clue on what is going on. They are always trapped in 24/7 meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Learned to work with your teams. Get off your high horse and realize it's about what's best for the company--not what's best for you. Transparency is also non-existent here. This company needs a major re-org.

    Pros

    Workplace is well designed! Teams are co-located for optimum communication and cross functional support.

    Cons

    Work/life balance in IS is not encouraged. In order to have and effective and healthy balance one must create their own, however, this can affect promotions and advancement opportunities as it's viewed as not being a teamplayer if you make your life and health a priority over the departments goals.
