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

    Pros

    At NeoLife you will have multiple opportunities to work with a broad network of teams and reach customers around the world. NeoLife is a mission driven company that prioritizes personal transformation and success.

    Cons

    NeoLife is going through a cultural transformation and despite being in business for almost 60 years the teams can feel like a group of startups. There is plenty of cross team support and many people bridge multiple teams but this can feel unstructured especially for people seeing NeoLife as an "old company". My advice is to developer a strong set of personal goals and seek opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I would personally love to see more outreach in the form of hosting Meetups and offering developer training (for non developers as well), but this would only be to expand on the already great community outreach and team building efforts.

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

    Pros

    I've never been so excited to work for an organization. This company REALLY cares about people and having a purpose. They are on a mission to make the world a better place, a happier and healthier place. Not only are their cultural values inspiring, the employees are all so nice! I immediately felt so welcome and appreciated here. The CEO is completely down to earth and so encouraging. The management here is VERY invested in people and in developing as a team, not just making a profit. Instead of focusing on just results, they care about helping us grow and learn. The entire experience of working here is just incredible.

    One of the huge benefits of working here that I'm just thankful for every day is that they make their nutritional supplements freely available at work! Not only are they committed and passionate about selling quality products, but they make sure their employees are able to take full advantage of them too. I've struggled with a ton of health problems and working here has definitely helped with them. It's cool to see how the typical employee here raves about the products just as much as the sales team. It's not just hype.

    This company has been around for 58 years and is really big globally. They're not well-known in North America yet so they're just begun to focus on expansion here, and they are about to go through a huge expansion in this market. This means they are very unique in that not only do they have those decades of stability, but their expansion means there are also some big career opportunities here.

    Did I mention I'm super excited to be working here?

    Cons

    Beware, you might catch the vision. It's possible that you may fall in love with your job and become so passionate that you can't pull yourself away.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    It has been such a blessing and privilege to be part of this amazing company! I can not thank my manager enough for all the support and positive attitude. I love the mission and what we all work here for. I could never ask for more.

    Cons

    Wish some employees here could focus on the positive things that we have in this company rather then picking on small matters that can be resolved easily.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for creating this peaceful and family oriented space for all of us!

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere and people at NeoLife are awesome. Everyone has each others best interest in mind and employees are recognized for a job well done. Health Benefits beat most others I have seen. This is a place where your ideas will be heard and you can be passionate about the work you are doing because NeoLife's Nutrition products help so many people all over the world. Perks like free supplements and snacks. My health has improved a lot since being on the products. I lost 30lbs and have been able to keep it off through our weight management program. Lots of fun at employee events like our summer party where there is corn hole, flip cup, and other fun games. Fast paced environment - high quality work is expected and also rewarded. It really feels like a family.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load can be tough. They definitely expect everyone to put in 100% and deliver consistently. Good thing is that there isnt anyone who asks this of you without doing it themselves.

    Advice to Management

    I don't find this to be the case personally but notice that there are some people who are too timid to voice their opinions so it would be good if you could communicate more often how much you value new and innovative ideas. I know that you do based on feedback I get.

    Pros

    NeoLife is a fun and great place to work. People are genuinely nice and upper level management is very approachable and easy to talk to. The company cares greatly about their employees' health and wellness offering complimentary nutritional supplements in the kitchen, fresh fruits everyday, a weekly fitness class, and low premium health care benefits. I've been enjoying my time at NeoLife, it feels like home.

    Cons

    So far, there has not been any downside working at NeoLife

    Pros

    NeoLife has a warm family led culture. Friendly staff and approachable management.
    There are new and exciting opportunities as the brand and all processes are being refreshed.

    Cons

    None really. I know the culture and it's very workable. We're helping people with their health and lifestyle.

    Pros

    previously coming from a fortune 500 fruit company to Neolife I can say the environment here is amazing. No jerks and open to creative ideas. The management team love their jobs and it shows. The technology team is ramping up to create next level products and features. The future look bright with NeoLife

    Cons

    The relaxed environment can at time make you feel like no work is needed but if you keep a proactive mindset you have the opportunity to create meaningfull and rewarding work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking to moving forward. Not too much of looking like others but to build new and innovative things.

    GNLD is a wonderful company to work for. The health benefits are great and not just because we are taking our vitamins every day! We have an opportunity to be very healthy and enjoy work at the same time.

    I worked at NeoLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    M-F Work Schedule, Free Supplements, Competitive Compensation and Benefits

    Cons

    Family owned and managed; executives and senior managers are not allowed to be fully effective in their positions. The corporate office is crippled by a pervasive "fear culture" where employees' job security depends upon keeping a low profile and not expressing opinions or suggestions that do not comply with the family management's beliefs or perceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Replace "fear culture" with one where integrity is valued AND practiced; allow non-family executives and managers to make decisions without being micro-managed. Encourage open and honest communication without fear of reprisals or termination. VERIFY information regarding employment decisions rather than relying hear-say and misinformation.
