      I worked at WorldVentures Holdings full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      A couple of things to note before you read this review: 1. I left willingly, on my own accord, for a much better opportunity where I'm actually valued and seen as a human being. 2. Current employees were CONSTANTLY "politely asked" and "reminded" to write reviews on Glassdoor. I would estimate their real score to be about 2.1-2.3 out of 5 after adjusting for the inflated reviews. 3. This review is about the corporate...

      Listed in ascending order of severity: -The healthcare credit program got a bit stingier this year. -If you're a contractor or hourly employee, you will be treated like second class citizen. -Good leaders are slowly losing their spirit, looking to leave, or already laid off by the insane executive team. -Most of the best people already left. When this company was actually fun to work at, WV corporate was lucky...

      Advice to Management

      Please stop doing illegal, unethical, horrible things to your members, reps, and employees. So basically, how about pay everyone a severance and shut this hot mess down?

      I worked at WorldVentures Holdings full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Some of the best people I had the pleasure of working with. The employees were the best part of the company. Easy going, laid back atmosphere. Clear and concise expectations for job and performance.

      Cons

      Executive leadership is a train wreck crashing into a dumpster fire of hot garbage. Constant layoffs for the past two years. Company is sued in every country they operate in. If that doesn't tell you something... CEO fake cries during speeches to entire corporate staff as practice for speeches to reps at sales training events. The company is a scam. Plain and simple.

      Advice to Management

      Instead of laying off hard working loyal employees that actually work for a living, maybe give the C-Levels a pay cut and save on wasteful spending. How can you justify paying an executive who does literally nothing almost $750,000 a year?!?

      Pros

      I have worked at WV for several years and it has been a bit of rollercoaster ride. The organization is currently going through extensive change and the process of change is hard. Early in my tenure the company had a vibrant culture, uniquely diverse in every sense of the word and they lived the fun, freedom and fulfillment philosophy. Clearly this worked for WV through the early days of the company. As recently as...

      there are still 180000 +/- paying members (this is an MLM after all) and paychecks are at the top of the heap in cash meetings. so yea you'll get paid also they are encouraging employees to write reviews in here in GD, so they maybe want to hear whats coming. its so hard to recruit people so you can probably get hired as a senior manager or director and get a resume boost with little problem. and be paid well for...

      No review here could really do justice to the turn around this place has gone through in the last 3 ish years. suffice it to say we were at over 500k members and growing 3 years ago and are now around 180k...steady decline and no plan or end insight to turn things around at this point... other than opex cuts across the board. most importantly due to the triangle shape of the business model with less and less and less...

      be way more honest about our companies future prospects. your words are hollow when the people your speaking to can read the numbers for them selves and the negative sentiment hangs in the air around us like a dense fog. give us any sense of a real vision we can invest in for the future and absolutely quit diluting our efforts and allow us to do just one thing better than anyone else can before we try to storm over...

      Pros

      Great, supportive, hardworking coworkers - some of the best people I've ever worked with. My manager is a great boss. Unlimited time off. Good pay.

      Cons

      Constantly changing priorities make working there exhausting, demoralizing and frustrating. Emergencies with ridiculously aggressive deadlines are status quo. These are quickly forgotten and the work discarded when the next emergency comes along. For this reason, it is hard to make progress on any projects with long term benefits, yet we are berated by executive management for not getting these things done. Lots of going-behind-the-back...

      Josh, lay off the crocodile tears. We don't want to hear you pontificate at every turn. Eddie, save your pep talks. We've heard it all before. Both of you, stop making up spontaneous promises and fake dates from the stage. Your employees stream the events. They laugh and roll their eyes but then lose sleep and get ulcers because they know whatever you said to the reps will become next week’s emergencies. Jim, put down...
