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

    Pros

    Management, even upper-management, is friendly and approachable. Several took the time to learn my name, and I really felt as though they care about my well-being. There were plenty of opportunities to move-up in the company, and Nu Skin really encourages their managers to higher from within, so you really have a chance to grow in your career. HR was always helpful and willing to answer questions about benefits/job opportunities, etc. Benefits are AMAZING- insurance coverage is great, and management is very generous with Christmas gifts and prizes, in addition to hosting awesome work events throughout the year that are open to all employees AND free products for everyone. Work culture is open, friendly, and encourages personal growth and innovation. My day-to-day job gets a little tedious at times, but all of these pros make it more than worth it. I would recommend working for Nu Skin to anyone!! It would take a lot to get me to leave.

    Cons

    Lots of family members/friends work together. It can be really hard to get hired if you don't know someone.

    I have been working at Nu Skin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company
    Regular bonuses
    Unparalleled Christmas bonuses
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Lots of long-tenured employees have been allowed to coast -- lots of dead weight
    Extraordinarily poor inter-department communication
    Technologically stagnant
    Conservative culture with heavy religious influence
    Location

    Advice to Management

    Many of the cons listed are being addressed. The company just laid off around 150 employees, many of whom had been there for 15+ years. Most of them had not been keeping their technical skills up to date, and had been coasting. The company recently brought in new IT management to provide a new, clear vision for the future. Our technology is far behind our competition, and for the first time in years we are finally starting to improve it. Many employees are upset by the recent layoffs, and scared for their future. But management should continue moving ahead with the cultural changes in IT.

    While doing so, the company also needs to remember that work/life balance is more important to many people than salary. If the job starts turning into regular 60-hour weeks, they will lose a lot of quality talent.

    I worked at Nu Skin full-time

    Pros

    Co workers were great, intelligent people that are willing to help and share what knowledge they can.
    the company provides free products and decent benefits. the company also provide a lot of community service and donation opportunities. It made you feel like you could make a difference in a small to big way.

    Cons

    with the change in top level management there is also a change in culture. The company is growing but they still felt like they had to do a layoff. They have been paying bonuses for several quarters now, but that made no difference. I enjoyed working there but with the founders stepping away and the new management coming in It will not be the same company.

    The company is changing. Don't expect comments about the previous culture, lifestyle, or benefits to be accurate. It will all change and will probably not settle down for a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    you are losing the loyalty of your employees with the changes you are doing. Part of what made NuSkin was the culture, the feeling of family. that feeling has been changing and not just because of the layoff, though that definitely made it worse, but with many of the other changes happening.

    I worked at Nu Skin full-time

    Pros

    Benefits like free products, on-site gym, discounted food, flexible PTO.

    Cons

    They refer to employees as being part of the "Nu Skin family", yet recently they've been doing mass layoffs of 100+ people across departments....this while the company has been doing well from a financial standpoint. They're also trending towards bringing in more contractors which is consequently putting less incentive on trying to keep full-time employees. More than likely this will lead to the top talent who can easily find new jobs to go elsewhere and the ones who are unable to find other work, staying.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, earn their loyalty. A loyal employee will want the company to succeed and their work will exemplify that. Contractors have zero long-term incentive to do quality work.

    I worked at Nu Skin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A bigger employer in a small town with employee bonuses

    Cons

    Technology is way behind. Architects love their 20 yr old ERPs that are not suitable for a disruptive world. All they do is to put lipstick on the pig and fool sr. management who are much older than them. They will neither support nor suggest changes to architecture/ERP/CRM tools to safeguard their careers. It's one big party.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh talent, newer tools, and get rid of every SAP director...bring new technologies that work on AI and ML. Technology is an important strategy for 3.0. CIO is also an SAP guy. Wake up to this truth and make way for a better tomorrow.
