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

    Pros

    this is a good place to learn a new job or maybe even learn a new skill if you are new out of school.

    Cons

    this place isnt good if you are coming in with management experience trying to move up in the company quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The management staff is still learning how to run a business. They let great people go while holiding on to new great looking females.

    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 worked at Herbalife part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working from home, being home with your kids, make your own schedule, work as hard as you can, and then play even harder

    Cons

    If you are not good at the job, you won't make much money. You have to be very competitive and pushy.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have much advice of the management. I loved my mentors and those above me. They pushed me to be the best that I wanted to be.

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

    Pros

    Winston Salem is very cheap location as there is not much development and thats the reason Herbalife opened plant there because of Cheap Land and Labor, that's it !

    Cons

    My biggest mistake in life was to join this company. Most of the positive reviews you see here are from Herbalife Distributors who are not Employees.
    If you work in IT and moreover in Oracle Apps ERP, never join this place. The management owning Oracle apps is worst, very micro management, sitting on your head, expect you to come to office in time after late night meetings with offshore and don't go to home from office untill late evenings. If you take a break from work for coffee or standing and chatting with someone related to work, the VP will stare like he will fire you right away. They treat you as slave as if they are doing favor to you by paying you. No recognition for hard work. Be ready for lots of smacking in from of whole team all the times. The managements assumption is that higher the pressure on employees, higher will be the output.
    Since I am on H1b visa, its difficult for me to switch jobs, I am desperately looking for my next job. 99% people are stuck here because of H1b visa.

    Advice to Management

    Look into IS department in Winston Salem seriously, bringing very bad name to company image, its becoming notorious in IT field. I heared HR saying that people who got selected and were offered the jobs here are susbequently rejecting the offers after finding out the things how IS works in Winston Salem. IS looks only H1b Candidates who can be exploited and cant leave the job easily- what a game IS Senior Management is playing with employees.

    Cons

    Worst politics in IT department at Winston Salem office . Shouting in public at employees is norm in this department and a totally unprofessional environment .If you are a person with self respect,don't join this company.You will be treated as s**t.No leadership skills at any level.They just lead by intimidation and rampant nepotism.If you are not in their closed circle ,u will treated as an outsider. Most of the IT guys are on H1B visa and management completely abuses them.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring candidates who know what they are doing . Not dumb managers.
