    Pros

    Working with co workers in different departments with the same goals to be healthy and happy. Co-workers are great throughout the company. The company provides opportunity for growth and for employees to be happy. The company provides free products and also has a basketball court and a gym for the employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is stressful to meet deadlines when projects change in a short amount of time. The computer data base is slow and updates all the time, hardware is old in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Reply back to employees when questions are asked in a timely matter or even at all. Listen to advice from employees and acknowledge it.

    Pros

    Stable company, slow and steady growth

    Cons

    Boys club, highly political. Promotions are voted on in meetings and dependent upon popularity with work accomplishments taking a backseat. This takes the focus off of work and forces those wanting to move up to spend time politicking instead of working.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Awesome fringe benefits that include profit sharing, full gym, classes, plenty of internal communication, family-friendly events, and good culture. Nice work-life balance, friendly employees, etc. I've always had managers who encourage me to innovate and come up with creative ways to improve things. I've been given opportunities for growth and they seem to do a good job of hiring from within. I've really enjoyed my experience there.

    Cons

    Review process needs to be revised, obscure process for raises, never really quite sure if HR is with you or against you. It's difficult to think of too many, really.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your roots. The foods line should be a nice compliment to the core (and outstanding) nutritional product line, but upper management can't seem to get it right. Aside from some of the decisions made for the foods product line, they have made some very sound and strategic decisions that have paid huge dividends.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, great health insurance, free gym and personal training. Huge emphasis on being healthy in the workplace. Fast growing company, but with a solid foundation.

    Cons

    Opportunities for growth were slim to none. There were many promises made, but not many followed through.

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging your employees to grow within the company, but make sure you follow through on those promises.

    Pros

    Management is generally good at providing employees the tools they need to get the job done efficiently and with the least pain. They also support employees spending time each week teaching each other a new skill or technology. Naturally there is an emphasis on health: free gym, fitness classes, fruit in the break room daily.

    Cons

    The company is not willing to pay market rates for top-drawer software developers. This type of cost savings is short-sighted.
