    Pros

    You can choose to work extra days if you need extra money. You work the same four days every week unless you have an overtime day. The work in the warehouse is fairly simple.

    Cons

    You must be prepared to move around constantly for 10-11 hours a day. The first few weeks you will be sore if you are not use to moving around that much.

    Advice to Management

    The management does a good job. The only thing that needs improvement is the equipment in the Static section, the carts mostly and some of the scanners. Some of the carts wheels have gotten stuck a few times and about slammed me into the wall.

    I have been working at Vitacost full-time

    Pros

    Being here is like being part of a family. Everyone is engaged and has a sense of ownership of what we're building together. There is a strong belief in our future. Worklife balance is good and I have an upward career path that is clearly communicated. There are so many exciting opportunities ahead! The culture here is upbeat and energetic, but relaxed and casual at the same time. It's a fun place to work.

    We also often get free products and have a shop in the office where we can buy low-cost healthy snacks, and there is a gym. It feels good to work for a company that is improving people's health and the quality of their lives.

    Cons

    The office isn't beautiful or modern, but that will change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome!

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

    Pros

    Executive Integrity
    3 weeks for a typical technology advancement project vs. 6 months minimum anywhere else I've worked
    Autonomy
    Opportunity to drive business strategies and contribute in multiple ways including helping to set technical direction

    Cons

    open office layout (personally I like it though because of the ability to connect & converse directly with our Executives including the CEO)

    Advice to Management

    Continue the unofficial policy of waiting however long it takes to find the right people, rather than settling on someone just to fill a position. In my opinion this is why we have the highest-performance IT Team I've ever encountered in my career.
