Not the worst place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYJanuary 22, 2019
Nature's Bounty was bought by a private equity company back in 2010 and has struggled ever since. Virtually no growth while the pieces of the company have been hacked off and sold (e.g. Holland & Barrett, Puritan's Pride). They have gone through three CEOs since the purchase and Nature's Bounty has kind of treaded water ever since. If you are looking for a company that's growing rapidly and is an exciting place to work, then Nature's Bounty is not the place for you. They treat the employees pretty well however. Free turkeys at Christmas and other perks throughout the year. The base compensation is competitive but the bonuses are weak. One major downside is the location. Ronkonkoma is in the middle of nowhere. There are very few good places to eat for lunch and there is no employee cafeteria where food is served.
Pros
Nice employee perks
Cons
Company is not growing

Horrible Work Environment STAY AWAY
E-Commerce Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYApril 5, 2018
The managers micro manage every little thing. If you slouch in your chair they will call you into the office and write you up. Managers are clueless, don’t know how to keep employees happy. No advancement, horrendous pay for the amount you’re asked to deal with. You start at sales, if you do good they teach you customer support, then e-support. You don’t get compensated for doing extra work even though old employees just do sales and get same pay.
Pros
None
Cons
Work weekends, low pay

Director (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYJanuary 23, 2018
NBTY can be a major shaker in the retail and nutrition world with being recently acquired and placed into a portfolio of companies that may be able to play a large part in shaping what NBTY could be for the new millennial marketplace. It will take time and the current workforce will need to cross-train to keep up with the digital transformation and re-branding efforts.

Good company too many changes in too quick a period of time
Human Resources Supervisor (Former Employee) –  ronkonkoma, nyNovember 15, 2017
good company, good benefits. The culture has changed over the years since the company was sold. New culture very different from the old one and very competitive. Management is now extremely corporate and are looking for young formally educated professionals that bring in fresh ideas to match the new corporate vision of the company. Three CEOs in the past 7 years. Lots of change on a constant basis. Not much promotion from within unless you have specialized talent, licenses or certifications and/or education that they may be currently searching for and fits with their ideas at this time. Great products. Used to be lots of longevity as most persons were working at the company for 10 years or longer. Now that has changed and there is much more turnover from warehouse to office personnel on a constant basis as the culture of the company has changed dramatically.

Receptionist / Marketing assistant (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYAugust 8, 2017
A typical day at work would to call customers and make sales. Every Monday i would take care of the checks and credits. I enjoyed the environment and the people that worked their. The hardest part was dealing with people with a heavy accent. Also the time difference was a challenge. Certain customers were in a different time zone.
