    I have been working at MINDBODY full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    i've been with the company now for just about 5 years, now work in Product Development, and it's been really awesome to watch the company grow. i've watched the company hire so many new people and teams double and triple in size, yet the company has been able to maintain its culture. It's awesome to see the CEO around the office and he not only knows many of the employees by name, but is friendly and approachable every time you see him. The company truly cares about its employees and treats us very well. The benefits are amazing and many, if not most decisions are run by employees before being made. Each department has their own nuances, but Prod Dev is truly an awesome place to come to work every day.

    Cons

    As we grow there are definitely more procedures and policies being put in place that feel a bit bureaucratic. Also many large decisions are made without a whole lot of planning or forethought, or research, so often times employees complain about MINDBODY always shooting from the hip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really try to communicate the 'whys' behind large or quick decisions made- and be sure it trickles down to each and every employee.

    I worked at MINDBODY full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great culture, fantastic leadership. You face business-problems at this company that no company has ever faced, and if you like being challenged, that's exactly what you're going to get! Benefits are great, core values are actually exercised. Also can't leave out that San Luis Obispo is a beautiful place to live. Would recommend it to anyone. And if you are driven, there is a ton of room for upward growth as this is just the beginning with MINDBODY...

    Cons

    A bit understaffed on certain teams, but that's what you get with an exciting start-ups. If you like wearing a lot of hats, this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote simply because there is an opening. Promote talent and if you can't do that, hire externally. Also need to look at upgrading certain processes/systems to help with scalability.

    Pros

    Awesome work culture, supportive and positive co-workers, benefits and wellness perks! MB is headed in the right direction with work culture and work/life balance. Yoga balls, beer and laughter here.

    Cons

    Would love to stay around with Mindbody as an employee longer, however most room for growth is located in San Luis Obispo. The starting pay is good for entry level openings, but with the cost of living where offices are located could be even better, these may be factors in high turnover/loss of talent seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows continue to seek promoting/hiring great leaders, not managers. Hire for potential and not always experience. :)

    Pros

    It's a fun environment and you work with enjoyable people.

    Cons

    It's hard to create your own leads and call people you don't know so you have to be very comfortable with cold calling strangers.

    Too true about cold calling, it's definitely not a job for everyone. Thank you for your review and we wish you the best of luck!

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, great PTO and benefits plan, competitive salary, regular parties, wellness practitioners on site, and a solid company culture based around a set of core values. Opportunities are abundant with a 'promote from within' culture. The CEO, Rick, is down to earth and approachable. The office design is modern and comfortable (if a little noisy). Overall, MINDBODY is a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    As we've grown larger, company policies have been tightening taking some of the magic away.

    Great review. There's a common thread in the comments about keeping the culture alive as we grow and that advice is spot on. In the near future I don't see all the perks dissapearing: the company ... More

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the environment you feel when you come in every morning. Everyone is friendly and wants to help you succeed. If you have questions, you can find someone who knows the answers very easily. I also love the core values or the company and how the everyone including the CEO embodies them and wants the best for their clients.

    Cons

    It's hard to say anything bad about this company, but if I had to choose something, I would say the quick turnover, at least in my department. They expect a lot out of you, but it's completely manageable. If you stay on top of your tasks, you can do well at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training on certain aspects of the software is the only thing I can think of.
