    I worked at USANA Health Sciences full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great developers! Great people! Benefits are pretty good. Profit Sharing is great. Gym is incredible. Health products available at an amazing discount.

    Cons

    Loyalty is irrelevant regardless of what coworkers say. Perception is reality from upper management. Not willing to spend money for tech but want what they don't spend on. GREAT COMPANY stay away from QA/QE

    Advice to Management

    When someone gives you 23 years of service and fellow coworkers you work with every day back you and say you do your job, fight for the employee. Not the new director who has been there a month.

    I have been working at USANA Health Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    USANA goes the extra mile for its employees, associates, customers, and community. There are a lot of great perks as an employee that you just don't see at other employers. I enjoy that we get things like covered parking, on-site gym and cafe, good benefits, very involved wellness program, scores of employee (and family) activities, employee recognition events, free product, the best company swag ever, awesome profit sharing, mentoring programs, monthly health/wellness seminars, and even free fruit every day. The list goes on.

    One of the awesome parts is our charity organization that does an incredible job all over the world fighting hunger for children and families. It's great to be able to to donate straight from your paycheck to help feed the less fortunate. USANA is very involved in the local community as well. Service projects are routine events that you can participate in, very often during work hours which is really rewarding and generous of the company.

    One of the things we are very lucky to have are excellent leaders all over the company. Senior and executive leadership are very involved with their teams, they're approachable, down to earth (you should see their music videos), and as you get to know them you realize that we have genuinely good and generous people at the helm which is reassuring as an employee. The "lunch with an executive" events are a treat. As you go down the ranks you continue to find very intelligent and accomplished professionals all over the place who are willing to share their knowledge and skills to help you be better at your own job. You get a sense that you can make a difference and contribution that matters.

    It is all hands on deck during the annual convention and while it can be a lot of work, it can be really exciting to meet so many people from all over the world in one place. The company does a lot to say thanks for everyone's hard work.

    I think departments work well with each other at USANA and it has been wonderful to partner with so many people all over the world to accomplish awesome things.

    USANA is a great place to work!

    Cons

    If I could change one thing it would be the ice bin in the break room. I'd replace the communal scoop/bin with an ice dispensing unit. ;)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do.

    * Compensates fairly and has competitive benefits
    * Cares about people and culture
    * Best executive management team i've seen
    * Great co workers
    * Flexible work policies
    * Great opportunity to grow

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to keep USANA's culture maturing. I've seen it come a long way in the 12 years i've been at USANA. There is always room to improve and it will always need care and feeding over the years.

    I have been working at USANA Health Sciences full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in USANA's IT department for over 10 years. There are a lot of great things to say about USANA:

    *Makes large efforts to create and maintain the culture they want
    *Work life balance
    *Cares about its employees.
    *Continually looking for ways to improve
    *Executive leadership is fantastic
    *They do a great job maintaining stability in our strategy and priorities
    *They listen to their employees
    *Job opportunities
    *Promotes good health to their employees and the world
    *Since I'm in IT, I want to say something specifically about the CIO - He is continually trying to improve the department and company and always does the right things for the right reasons. He listens to his people. He is always thinking about the culture of the department.

    The list goes on and on. Needless to say, USANA has been such a great place to work for a long time. There have been bumps along the way, but USANA always manages to make things right and continually strives for greatness.

    Cons

    USANA has a culture where we are always trying to get better; which means that any "cons" that exist can be or are being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in the direction you are moving. USANA is getting better and better every day.

    Pros

    USANA has done a wonderful job of building a healthy environment for software engineering. They truly care about their employees and strongly promote a healthy work life balance. The CIO himself is a terrific example by keeping a great balance himself. The management makes decisions but they listen and take your input seriously.

    Cons

    There are old systems to clean up. if you don’t see that as an exciting challenge then that can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the culture the way you have in the last 2 years.

    Pros

    IT management is committed to empowering its development teams. It is refreshing to work alongside so many smart people who really care about the quality of the results they produce. The company culture has matured significantly in the two years since I have been here. Opportunities for advancement are created as change is introduced. And you have to love the profit sharing, because the company is doing very well :-).

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect, of course. I work in software development, as as the group matures, some embrace the change and others lament. But the changes are overwhelmingly positive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering the employees. The organization gets better when initiatives are primarily bottom-up.

    Pros

    Strong company growth. Never had any layoffs.
    Opportunities to improve IT into an enterprise environment.
    Good benefits
    Terrific work / life balance.
    Encourages health and wellness.
    Opportunities for knowledgeable IT professionals
    Culture in IT is improving.

    Cons

    In IT, patience is required. The company has many legacy services and processes that need improvement. While there are opportunities to help mature the organization it takes to make progress.
    IT culture has been improving over the past couple of years with new leadership but there are still pockets of old unhealthy culture that exist. These pockets are getting smaller and smaller.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move forward improving processes and maturity as an enterprise organization especially in IT while continuing to have that small company family environment.

    I have been working at USANA Health Sciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Here's my list of why I love it here at USANA

    Opportunity - The ability to grow and learn at USANA has been amazing. If you truly want to learn and grow there are many great leaders that are willing to listen and mentor.

    Employee Appreciation - USANA has an amazingly active HR. Reward events, recognition for contribution and time at USANA, department events/parties, meaningful training courses, actively improving the wants and needs of everyone at USANA.

    Benefits - Paid time off is generous, Vacation Time, Sick Time, Family Time, and Floating Holidays. Maternal and Paternal Leave. Low costs on medical, dental, vision and great 401k retirement options.

    Health and Wellness - USANA has done a great job on making sure the employees feel at home while at work. Full on-site gym, full basketball court, on-site free fitness training, free fitness group classes. Employees have a few ways of getting USANA products, shakes, vitamins, healthy supplements that are all top tier products.

    The Employees - I personally work with most departments and countries at USANA, I have never been part of such a great team! Most groups have the want to grow and be better and I have never felt like an outsider when asking questions or working with other departments.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, there will always be swamps to fall into if you allow yourself to fall in getting caught up in rumors and gossip. Everywhere has them and these days at USANA the group effort and teamwork is the best I have seen over the years.

    Advice to Management

    The improvements in our IT department have been a breath of fresh air. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at USANA Health Sciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    USANA's IT department was a mess when I started almost 5 years ago. There were no standards on anything and it was hard to manage and keep up with changes. With a new CIO and IT upper management it has improved immensely. The IT department has over 200 employees and all the teams work well together. We all have direction and are all working on the same goal to improve even more. There is still room for improvement and that's what makes it exciting - to see the changes and improvements being made make me proud to be part of the IT department.

    USANA as a whole is an amazing place to work. The culture is amazing, everyone is so nice and will to do everything they can to help. The chief officers know that work is not the only thing in life and promote a healthy work / life balance because they want that for themselves too!

    There are some great benefits as well: full gym, basketball court, fitness classes, healthy onsite cafeteria, 401k matching, profit sharing, health benefits are decent, great people to work with and for.

    Cons

    USANA's culture is always changing and any cons that there may be are taken seriously by upper management. They are willing to listen to concerns and suggestions and do what they can to fix things.
