    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bodybuilding.com has changed over its 19-year history. It is not the same place today that it was when it opened, or even 4 years ago, it is different. Leaving this organization was a difficult choice. I would not have the opportunity I left for if it wasn't for this place. Here is some list of benefits that they offer: -High 401k match -Good Medical plan(s) -Good Dental plan(s) -Good vision plan -Onsite gym, for...

    Cons

    Having to deal with people who are fixated on "where BBcom was" the organization had changed and that was hard for a lot of people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you are on.

      Pros

      Agile environment. Work from home

      Cons

      Super volatile environment. I resigned from a 6 year full time position with the promise of a great job that would support me while getting up to speed. I started working there and was given no help from my team or manager to get going. They are super unorganized. Was told they didn’t have enough work for me after a month and laid me off

      Advice to Management

      Start treating people with respect.

      Pros

      After we hit rock bottom, we can only go up - right?

      Cons

      Strong personalities and big egos are terrible if you don't really know what you're doing. These people have no idea what it took to build this amazing place and the community we had. There is no leadership team - just a bunch of know-nothings that like the smell of their own stuff. Liberty Media also doesn't seem to care much. Those folks run Expedia -- how the heck can they not find good leaders for BB? It makes...

      Good Culture, lots of department events, employee discount.

      Cons

      24/7 availability needed. Good employee policies, but some times supervisors weren't performing at the same standard set by Director.

      Pros

      benefits (though being reduced), on-site gym

      Cons

      Where to start: The most obvious was departmental management that was in over its head and was neither aware of its weaknesses nor that its processes that were supposed to catch problems actually routinely failed to do so. The culture in the editorial department was one that not only accepted mediocrity but fought efforts at improving quality, resulting in glaring errors and bad advice going live online. Not only did...

      Advice to Management

      This is no longer a company that intends to serve its customers with accurate, intelligent information; it exists today only to make a profit despite being on the downward arc of its life cycle, so it's grasping at straws. Stop pressuring employees to give high scores on Idaho's Best Places to Work. That's not encouraging submission rather it's trying to inflate your ranking. Get some intelligent, experienced people...

      I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Super company with great benefits. From day one they made this the best career move ever. Recruiting me was the best experience I have ever had with a company. New plans for the company future are energizing and promising. Most people are here to make the company successful. Good vibes mostly.

      Cons

      Sour and negative employees that are not down for change and make it bad for new employees who want to succeed personally and help the company succeed. Work a lot of hours but mainly it is because there are a lot of lazy employees left from the past. Not even balanced working hours for people on same teams is not fair.

      Advice to Management

      Keep making changes. We have a lot to fix so get rid of the nay sayers employees that are bringing us down. It is easy to ignore them but we are always cleaning up the mess they are probably making purposely because they don’t care. Thank you for planting the tree of new beginnings. I have only been here for two years so I don’t know a lot about things before that but know we needed it.
