    I worked at Herbalife full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Residual income, High energy, happy people most of the time, Great leadership, Lots of mentorship.

    I still love the products 20 years later and trust the company completely. They always have their distributors in mind when they make changes. The income if you make it big is huge!

    Cons

    There's only 1 way to make it. Grow grow grow. You basically start from nothing. Sure it only cost a couple hundred to buy a business kit that comes with products (worth it) but if you get bad mentorship it's up to you to figure it out. You can to reach out to people, and the best place is friend and family. If you're shy it's tough.

    Other than hard work this company is amazing and the pay is insane!

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at Herbalife (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment consisting primarily of young, healthy, hard-working people that support each other. Many of the products are relatively healthy, taste good, and provide some of the daily vitamins/minerals that are often neglected.

    Cons

    The overwhelming majority of Herbalife distributors are unable to make a large enough income to support themselves. It can also be challenging to sell the products to individuals that want unprocessed food, or those whom are perfectionists when it comes to health.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate healthy fats into the mix.
