    I have been working at Nutraceutical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Healthy products and dedicated co-workers. Good physical environment in the office. Product discounts on vitamins and personal care products. Could be a good situation for the people who out-live the shakeup.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition by a private equity firm has really shaken things up. It needed it, because the earlier CEO had been micro-managing the company into a bad spot. The changes being implemented by the new management will definitely turn things around but it's going to be a difficult process. Expect disruption.

    Pros

    Zero communication, so at least you wont feel micromanaged

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

    Pros

    Most employees are nice and try to make it a good environment. If you're into the all-natural, all-organic, homeopathic lifestyle then you will fit in and be very happy. The pay is good.

    Cons

    Micro management, almost no PTO, no room for advancement unless upper management retires or you move to a new site, no dental or vision insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Management treats the company like it's a small business with less than 50 employees. If you want growth at a high rate, you need to start putting more faith into departmental managers to make correct decisions on how to run things for their team. On that note, reevaluate your departmental managers.

    Pros

    Managers and coworkers are generally ok. Usually can work with your department to schedule time off for vacations, events ahead of time. Facilities and break rooms always clean. I was able to read/study on down time, but that's different in other departments. They give away furniture every few months, a lot of it is in good condition or even new. Unless you are IT or on the production line it's M-F 8-5, which I loved. I'd recommend this to someone who is finishing school or looking for a more permanent position.

    Cons

    The CEO micro-manages everyone. Down to the warehouse workers. The benefits package is garbage, no maternity leave, minuscule amount of PTO, pay is terrible. I only received a $.16 raise in my 3 years there despite getting a degree while there. Managers really dont have much power, so executives have to approve everything you do. There's no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Lower management, keep caring about your employees. It's very much appreciated and noticed!!! Upper management, get off your high horses. You're really not the most important beings in the world.
