    Pros

    PTO, sick days, medical benefits paid at 100% for myself and my spouse, great wellness incentives, great leadership development.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are growing pains felt from a company accelerating as fast as this one, however the exec team and CEO are great with communication about changes and updates.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep staff informed, we appreciate the transparency!

    Pros

    The pros consist of culture, management, part time pay, coworkers and the location. It is an amazing company for college students!

    Cons

    The full time pay is hard to accept but other than that nothing is wrong with the company

    Pros

    Great management, really fun environment and work place. I genuinely enjoy coming into work and working with people who are very passionate about Mindbody across all the departments!

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to park off-site because we're growing so fast, but they have a new parking garage and a shuttle that picks you up so I can't really complain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you've been doing! Keep the core values as we begin to grow more and more as a company.

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, benefits are good. Company really cares about it employees, that's not just marketing.

    Cons

    The CVA process is a dreaded chore.

    Advice to Management

    The CVA process started as a good idea, its just a painfully frustrating time sink now. Saba is so clunky, and you can't correct spelling errors without starting goals over from scratch. Every 90 days is too much.

    Pros

    The focus on wellness is great. It's awesome to be encouraged to work out and that there's an expectation of healthy living. You really do get the opportunity to learn here, and that's probably more than you can get working in other companies like MINDBODY.

    Cons

    Have a concern about the company? Good luck finding someone who will listen. All but the customer service directors and VPs have closed offices and don't really mingle with the rest of the workforce. Want a promotion? The only people I've seen get promoted have either been out of convenience or because someone got pregnant. (And on that note, if you're consciously choosing not to have children or can't, be prepared to feel awkward all the time. There are lots of expectant mothers here, so there are constantly baby showers and people asking you when you're going to have a baby. I've been asked about when I'm going to get pregnant or that "I'm next" more times than is appropriate.) Pay isn't equivalent across departments. Some departments are offered major incentives for performance while others have to pay out of pocket for team building activities. It's really not fair or equitable.

    Advice to Management

    Actually meet with your employees. Don't cancel one on ones, that's just really bad form and makes your employees feel unimportant. A lot of us are poor and miserable, but because SLO doesn't have many other employment options, we're stuck. It's not exactly the best strategy for a good workforce. Give us a real reason to stay.

    They really seem to care about us and people and making sure we are happy. Appreciated people work harder! We have endless resources to assist us and our clients. The atmosphere is very positive, humble and helpful!

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly and it seems like we need more support in most areas, especially with tech support and training coaches. I think that they are currently working to hire new people and gets these spots filled.

    Pros

    I am not one to give out great reviews just for the hell of it, plus give such an amazing one as I am about to. I have never felt a company or job have my back as much as MINDBODY. I truly enjoy going to work. The company and people around me are incredible which makes it easier to come in everyday. I would say the average age in the Sales Rep department is 28, so that's nice. We are a true team, well oiled machine. It's nice to confidently say to prospects that we are the preferred (I really mean best and why would you go with anyone else) software for honestly any business. I am a stylist and on salon specific team so having that relation to my prospects is nice but salon's sale cycle is a lot longer that does not deter me. If you want an awesome job in an equally awesome town with the best weather in the world (I mean world) come to SLO! Plus there is an amazing college that feeds young eager kids every year.

    Cons

    Sales is sales. All I can say is you get out of this as much as you put in. You will reap rewards if you work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Take the words from your fellow employees and be a fair nonjudgmental "superior" and leader to us.
