    Pros

    The company supported health and wellness activities for the employees, which was practicing what they preached.

    Cons

    Very unstable, executives met regularly with employees making it sound that things are alright and next thing you know, it went belly up. How can a company that made $1 billion in its first 3 years in business go bankrupt? Bad Management!

    Pros

    - Pay is good.
    - Co-workers are great.
    - The opportunity for strategic growth and training is currently amazing.
    - Hopefully a foundation is being built that can turn things around.

    Cons

    - C-level management either doesn't know how or doesn't want to change, so things stay the same so far ("you can't teach an old dog new tricks" comes to mind).
    - Some c-level doesn't understand how to lead people in modern business. It doesn't work to say "I'm the boss so do what I say" anymore. Doing that, you'll just lose the ones who are any good.
    - Current lack of communication throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to the employees who are providing feedback or voicing concerns... They are trying to help.
    - Decide on a path and stick with it. Don't try to do all opportunities all at once. Do one thing and stick with it so it can succeed.
    - CEO needs to lead his team.
    - "The quest stands on the edge of a knife---stray but a little and it will fail. Yet hope remains while the company is true..."

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Depending on the day.

    Cons

    Can't get out of its own way.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people that do the work get the credit

  8. "MonaVie is a good company to work for but the network marketing business model is semi-predatory in nature."

    Pros

    The compensation is above average and there are opportunities for promotion within the company. Many people have moved up into different ranks. There usually was a need for competent IT personnel and programmers since they were hard to keep. The customer service department can work from home which is a big plus. It seems like with the new leadership taking hold they are eliminating some of the problems.

    Cons

    MonaVie has tried to reinvent itself several times over the past 3 years. This has lead to somewhat of an identify crisis and there has been a big turn over in management. The pace of new initiatives has been somewhat frantic and helter-skelter which has created the feeling of always being in emergency mode. The biggest negative about working for MonaVie or any network marketing company in general is the failure rate of distributors. It is difficult to see how few distributors actually make money and most of the hype and the hope that is sold doesn't pan out. The business model seems quite flawed since so few distributors actually make money.

    Pros

    Cafeteria on Site
    Starting to invest in Leadership Training (weekly session)
    Health Benefits, Medical on site, The Basics

    Cons

    Salary lower then average
    Tactical company day to day, no strategy, and their plans seem to be more throw stuff up on the wall and see what happens. Weak people on C Level and in Regional roles. Politics, typical MLM BS, whatever happened to good quality service and product and operations? This place has so many problems it's almost impossible to prioritize what to do next. The good news is if you are willing to help fix them you have a job as long as they are around. This is a weird place to work if you are not from the Utah LDS Breed or Right Wing Conservatism mixed with Holy Acai Juice that is really powder that may or may not be healthy.
    Old Technology and Innovation is lacking. They had to outsource jobs to keep cost in control and also removed a lot of jobs in 2013 and early 2014. The problem is they didn't get rid of people that caused the downslide of the company and cash problems. They are still there acting like everything is ok and it isn't.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the advice of your Turnaround Experts and Advisory Board. Mynt may make it but right now only popular in limited single wards in Utah County. The rest of this mess we just need to clean up and get some talent and expertise to make things happen quickly before we run out of time and money completely. Fire Brasil Management and start over. Fire EU Management and Start over, Fire 3 people on C level that are not "Mynt" qualified and too old to even turn on facebook on their mobile.

    "Never felt secure..."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Compliance Specialist in South Jordan, UT
    Former Employee - Compliance Specialist in South Jordan, UT

    I worked at MonaVie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Allowed telecommuting, good benefits, in-house health clinic. Occasionally got to travel to foreign countries when we were opening up a new market.

    Cons

    Always big changes around the corner. Never felt secure in employment. Cut out basic break room supplies like paper plates, plastic utensils, etc... The company made lots of backroom deals with big time distributors that were forbidden to the average distributor. Lack of ethics.
