    I worked at Herbalife full-time

    Pros

    The VP in Lake Forrest truly understood people and how to motivate them. He was regularly seen on the plant floor, and in the lunch room connecting with the team.

    Cons

    The plant as a whole is VERY concerned with how things LOOK, not how things ARE. A publicly traded company, they have some detachment about what is actually going on, opting to managing perceptions rather than correcting issues.

    Advice to Management

    A great place to work survey is fine, but placating hourly employees temporarily to get through surveys favorably is not a real way to actually have a great place to work.

    I worked at Herbalife (More than a year)

    Pros

    You have full control over how much time and effort you put into your work. The products come at a cheaper cost as a member and they actually work if you stick to the plan. The pay is pretty descent if you are able to build your clientele

    Cons

    Because it is so independently ran, you must find the drive, clientele, and motivation to build up your business and make the money you really want to.

    I worked at Herbalife part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    fun
    surrounded by positivity
    learn to do personal development/constantly working on bettering yourself
    you meet a lot of people from all around the world and make a lot of friends

    Cons

    income varies
    inconsistent
    highs and lows with sales
    you spend a lot of money between all the trainings, traveling, hotels
    people often "buy" their way to hitting cuts
    new changes in the marketing plan make it harder to advance
    there is nothing to protect you as a coach if people decide to refund their products, you're just out of the money

    Advice to Management

    offer benefits for those who have been doing the business for at least a year... whether thats health insurance, 401K, etc. There's not enough incentive for people to do this full time as a career.
