    Pros

    Cool products, but that's it.

    Cons

    Had to know where to start, but it all stems from the upper management (chief suite level). They have no idea what they are doing. They have no experience in the supplement world and are driving an already struggling company into the ground (their previous work expereinces come from exculusively failing buisnesses). And buisness nepotism at it's finest got them thier jobs. Several of them are the most disrespectful human beings I have ever met. Most are not openly disrespecful, while others have said such unbeliabley harsh and brutally mean things that it takes you back to the 1950 type of bosses. And you can't complain to HR because they don't want to say anything negative about the management with a fear of being fired. You must respond to an email or message from upper management within a minute or you will be verablly bombarded. And requests that would normally take longer periods of time to work on, are expected within minutes as well. Most all of the valuable employees have wisely left for other opportunities. Whatever you do, please do not work here until they clean out the entire upper management, unless you want mental trauma from a brutal culture and harsh work environment. If no changes are made, the company will go under sooner than later. (Jas, who did have supplement experience, is no longer the CEO, but is on the board of the company)

    Pros

    My coworkers were all amazing. Great people to work with and really good at their jobs.

    Cons

    Management has progressively gone from bad to worse. People quit or are laid off and they don't replace them, they just expect whoever's left to do their work in addition to their own job. There is no work-life balance anymore, they expect you to be on-call 24/7. No one who isn't upper management has gotten a cost of living raise in years, let alone an actual performance based raise. The culture is dead and if the people in charge don't stop making terrible business decisions, like laying off everyone who actually knows the industry and hiring people in upper management who are clueless, it's not going to get better.

    Pros

    Overall, a good place to grow in your career and even better if you have a passion for fitness.

    Cons

    Mistakes by past leadership mean there are fires to put out after a bonfire to put out. Talked a good game about work-life balance but there was lots of pressure to grind as if it was a small Silicon Valley startup.
