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

    Pros

    The atmosphere and environment is best I've ever been in. Good perks, nice people and a company profile you can be proud of. From what I see, the work-life balance and professional opportunities are great. I couldn't be happier here.

    Cons

    There's some leniency towards underperformers.

    Advice to Management

    Increase IT staff, have more social events.

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

    Pros

    Great products, and company has some cool perks like employee product allowance, early-close Fridays during the summer, and great coworkers. Company is large enough to have some good programs, but not so big you get lost in a huge corporation.

    Cons

    Some of the growth the company has experienced comes with a need to create more structure. This is both a good and a bad thing, as things will likely continue to change somewhat.

    I have been working at Metagenics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Finally giving proper tools to perform a job

    Cons

    No room for advancement.. If you don't kiss up to certain people you will not get promoted and they hire more people from the outside than the inside. Salary sucks.. make more money at McDonalds and have less responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Hear what the employees are saying.. don't just listen real hear them

    I have been working at Metagenics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    On a mission to change healthcare. Great products. Decent benefits. Lot's of internal promotion when new roles become available

    Cons

    There were some rough years, but new CEO has the company back on track. Some overly negative employees still need to get on board.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work to make Metagenics great again.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Free coffee. Free breakfast protein shakes

    Cons

    Easy to get promoted without experience if Sr. Management likes you. Business strategy, planning or long term goals are non-existent. The company sells health and wellness product but the work environment is not healthy. Employees are overworked and unhappy. Management worries to much about what the competition is doing instead of focusing on pursuing a more current business model that will help the company grow.
    The mission, vision and values do not match their actions. People are fired for expressing their professional opinion or simply because their boss doesn't like them. Sr. manager prefers to listen to people that just talks a lot and pretend to know and understand the business. If you are the type of person that likes kissing up to the boss, this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately there is no point here as sr. management only listens to people that pretend to know what they are talking about instead of listening to the people that actually want to help the company prosper.
