    I worked at Beachbody full-time

    Pros

    You get to work at this amazing place and have free access to a gym. Management is great. As far as people commenting that they would rather clean toilets...then they should. The CTO is an intelligent man who I have had the privilege to work for. For someone who does not like their job...they should quit. It takes a long time for someone to come in and fix everything that has already been wrong with the IT dept. And as far as being "feared" people should just learn to work hard and then they wouldn't have any problems. To the people out there who are unhappy with their CTO...compare your profile to his and see who comes out on top.

    Cons

    Some people are lazy there so you always have to pick up the slack...of course those are always the ones who complain about their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I enjoyed working for you.

    Pros

    I love being a coach for Beachbody because of their mission to help change people's lives through fitness and nutrition. When people make a change on the outside, they make a change in so many other ways (e.g. self-esteem/self-confidence). Beachbody also rewards coaches in a way that's motivating and exciting. I could never have imagined myself in any kind of direct marketing business, but Beachbody's excellent products and programs make it easy! It is very manageable to make money working at it part time.

    Cons

    It takes time to build your business and start making a reasonable commission (6 mo to a year, I'd say, if you're working at it part time, but diligently).

    Advice to Management

    More affordable products, if possible ,and fewer limitations on lead program.

    I worked at Beachbody full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I dealt with several health issues due to chronic illness while I worked at Beachbody, and everyone--from coworkers to management to upper management--was incredibly supportive throughout the entire process.
    I was given several opportunities to grow and experience new things, and there were outlets for any "work frustration" that may have built up on a bad day.
    Beachbody encourages its employees to be courageously forthright and to speak up for what they believe in, and in the end, Beachbody is committed to its mission statement: Help people achieve their goals and enjoy a healthy, fulfilling life.

    Cons

    Some perks have gone by the wayside over the past couple years. Company breakfasts and ping-pong tournaments were great motivators and made Beachbody unique.

    Pros

    discounts, helping others, and earnings

    Cons

    My downside are not company related it's personal. I have a hard time talking to people about TBB, I know I have to do more personal development

    Advice to Management

    I think upper management does very well, I don't really have any ideas to make it better than what it already is.
