    Great Mission. Great Company

    Emerald Coach (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsAmazing CEO, most of the other coaches are very nice and helpful. Company encourages self-improvement. Products are the best in the industry. Huge earning potential. Huge impact potential.

    ConsWebsite is difficult to work with. There is no easy way to see order history especially for customers. The Coach back office is confusing but getting better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove Order website. Have more events on the east coast.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nepotism, lies and over spending is a common theme in this company. Stay away.

    Corporate Employee (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsWorkout while you work - although you will find some employees spending 3 hours a day there while you pick up their work

    ConsManagement hands projects to inexperienced employees due to 'who they are' rather than what they know - leading to mistakes, wasted money and angry employees looking for new jobs. They use bonus as a leverage with your salary however constant overspending causes bonus payout to be much lower.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the employees that deserve their positions and stop promoting based on who you are rather than what you know and your experience (e.g. do not keep promoting a 25 year old who constantly makes mistakes when you have plenty of other qualified candidates, etc.) Tell the truth - do not hide major events and decisions from employees who will be directly affected. You cannot trust or rely on the HR department either. They do not follow confidentiality terms at all and what they say vs. what they do never match up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Could be a great place except for the Politics and Workplace Bullying and Gossip within IT

    (Current Employee)

    ProsA great concept, great people who believe in what they are doing and believe the official company line about healthy life styles. Apart from the politics and insanity of IT this is a very nice place to work.

    ConsApparently the to get ahead there if you work in IT is to bully people and malign them to management. The politics and back stabbing within that group is wearisome and sad. It creates a negative culture that discourages people from wanting to help each other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more funding for training for IT personnel to do their work effectively. If someone reports that they were bullied by a manger have a process in place to deal with these sorts of conflicts. Encourage and reward a culture of respect and helpfulness rather than a culture of gossip and back stabbing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It's all about customer service!

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsYou get amazing discounts on the products. You meet lots of interesting people. You can build your own client base. You learn A TON about customer service.

    ConsIrregular Hours. Cannot be shy. It is a competitive world when it comes to sales. Turn over rate is high. Management is a bit snobby. If you don't speak any other languages then making sales is hard as lots of the customers are not from America.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sales less about competition and more about team work.

    Excellent marketing, excellent customer service, great team building in career and user, top notch company!

    Beach Body Coach (Former Employee)
    Allentown, PA

    ProsExcellent customer service, user friendly website, motivating team members, excellent products with proven results

    ConsNot many. I have been a beach body coach and there are not many cons other their ones own self motivation. You get from this what you put into it, both the career and the product.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing and tell Tony Horton to talk less in his dvds!
