    Pros

    The people below management level are good people but have to work with little leadership. You have to work extremely hard and many hours, and if you like this then this is your place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management does not work well with personnel and they are not happy with anyone that has more knowledge than themselves. Leadership is very limited and they do not care about the personnel. Teamwork is very limited except with anyone below management. This is a very difficult environment to work in. I have worked for much better companies that consider the personnel and work with them.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your more experienced personnel and realize that they are your futures, not your demise.

    Pros

    The products actually work and are overall satisfying! Good sales experience.

    Cons

    It's a pyramid scheme. So you have to put a lot of work in at the bottom to climb up.

    I have been working at Herbalife full-time

    Pros

    Competitive benefit packages and salaries
    Disconts in product and merchandise and other perks
    Discretionary work from home
    Onsite gym and health training opportunities

    Cons

    Cronyism and favoritism at its finest!
    Top heavy organization with a minimal number of personnel at the workforce level
    Limited upward mobility; hiring from within is never an option
    Poor management practices drive away talent, encourage micromanagement and increase workload
    Poor internal communications; serious email and meetings dependency
    Bureaucratic, no work-life balance at the workforce level
    Inefficient training; most staff have to learn by trial and error
     “This is the way we’ve always done it” attitude
    High turnover rate due to disproportionate numbers of contractors vs. regular staff

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent middle management with experience who can mentor and develop talents.
    Middle management recognition practices need improvement. Showing integrity by giving credit where credit is due is more important for employee morale than a paper diploma.
    Need to improve outdated systems and processes that work for the current business demands.
    Middle management is always MIA from direct reports because of excessive meetings or individual interests.
