    I worked at Herbalife part-time

    Pros

    I already had a full time job when I signed up for Herbalife's dist. program and I did manage to make a dent in my monthly bills and expenses with what I made here on a weekly basis. I didn't really "rockstar" it or anything like that, just a small side income, but it's definitely worth it, I can see it scaling if I had put more time into it.

    Cons

    nothing at all comes to mind, you are your own boss, so to speak, and you can become your own "con"

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time

    Pros

    The majority of the people (workers) are great and hard working.

    Cons

    Leadership is horrible. Only a small handful of wonderful leaders but majority are pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves. Stop only caring about the $. Attitudes of "I'm better than you" need to go. You preach servant leadership and there are only a small handful of leaders in WS that do so.

    Pros

    Decent pay and good atmosphere.

    Cons

    Headquarters are located downtown LA which is awful. Additionally your moral compass has to be in the correct alignment to work for a borderline pyramid scheme.
