    I have been working at Herbalife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are INCREDIBLY nice and the focus on nutrition and fitness has been fantastic. I've lost 80 pounds since working here.

    Cons

    Because it's an international company, it can get a bit 24-7. Also, sometimes I feel like everything is a crisis.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to distinguish between truly urgent and non-urgent tasks.

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are really kind and super friendly in general. I know not all departments have it but work from home flexibility is good. Decent pay and benefits. Cafe in the Torrance office is good. On site gym is small but not bad. My department has good work life balance.

    Cons

    Now as far as the working environment, it is highly dysfunctional and disconnected. Poor leadership in middle management. As nice as some of them are, there are far too many of them that are completely clueless. Many business processes are behind the times. Each day is a lesson in futility but hey people like the products. It is not a place for the youth,career growth, or staying up with industry standards (at least not in the functional business areas).

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't take advice internally so I am sure they aren't checking here. I take that back, they will take your advice but then do absolutely nothing with it.

    Pros

    Great maintenance group (day, evening and weekend staff).

    Cons

    If you don't fit the culture of the some of the Sr. Manager World Wide Engineering at Herbalife, your days are numbered. Please make sure you are either passive or not a minority male. If you express your professional opinion to her (short and fat) you will not last.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck

    Company is consistently in legal issues, meaning there is a lack of job security
    Employee turnover rate is a major issue causing dysfunction

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with the same respect your senior distributors receive.
    Listen to your employees recommendations and conduct proper exit interviews to find out why the employee's leave

    Enforce the companies mission and values internally, your employees are your most valuable asset keep them healthy and happy

    Pros

    Personally I loved helping people who wanted to lose weight. I just use to make shakes for them but I loved it.

    We would have customers that had an attitude and it was hard to keep my mouth shut but that’s pretty much it.
