    Good place to work for good people

    Nov 5, 2019 - Finance in Boise, ID

    Pros

    Good place to work with great benefits. Compared to my wife's benefits with a bigger company in town we are better off with mine. The company cares about employees and even in hard times still takes care of us.

    Cons

    We still have too many employees that don't care about their jobs or the company leaving work for everyone else on the team and company. The company is too slow to get rid of dead weight.

    Great job for people who like a challenge.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I love this work. I like that my job is different everyday. The company adapts and pivots very well (small enough to act like a start up, big enough to have great benefits). I like the environment of working with people who do hard things to get results (whether physically, mentally or professionally). Good place for someone who likes a challenge and can operate well in ambiguity.

    Cons

    This job isn't predictable. You can't plan on taking a long vacation during the "off season." In my role I have often needed to work evenings and weekends to meet deadlines, sometimes with little or no lead time to prepare. Not for someone who's looking for a standard 8-5.

    Putting the NO in Autonomy

    Jan 30, 2020 - Digital Marketing Manager in Boise, ID
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great 401K Match, Great Benefits, FTO, (Although, at one point we had to write our name on an 8ft by 10ft White Board Calendar for days we were taking off. Usually wouldn't be an issue, until the statement of "We will see who wants to keep writing their name up there" was made), Gym

    Cons

    Serious Micromanagement (other departments asking to be included in marketing planning, not for visibility but for approval, seemingly pulling mandate outside of their area of focus). Lack of trust in mid-level management and specialist level. Complete lack of knowledge in processes and workflow complexities. Short-term leadership outlook. Leaders lack tact (C-Suite employees stating they "forget what it's like to be one of you" from a stage at an all-hands meeting). Monotonous work (sale, sale, sale), churning and burning eCommerce discounts, which pulls time and resources away from things that should be number one priority (content, subscriptions, etc.). Customer-first focus is whimsical, not tangible.

    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.

    Great for now but probably not for the long term

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great and unique company. Great benefits and a really fun environment to work. They really try and focus and help motivate employees to embody a healthy lifestyle by having all sorts of rewards programs for fitness activities and an onsite gym. It's really great to work for a company where the customer isn't just a dollar, but an actual person who can benefit from the information and eventually products available on the site.

    Cons

    Great company but not really structured for a longevity career type place to work. Unfortunately a lot of employees have to use Bodybuilding.com as a stepping stone to move onto something else. Company culture is unique, but cannot compensate for lower wages. Also, management needs to be trained on how to be managers. Employees are promoted because they embody the culture, but not trained how to manage and lead a team.

    Pros

    - Great benefits (Health, dental, vision, 401k... etc etc) - Fun culture to learn about, cool events, lots of free swag - Great place to gain experience - There are a lot of cool employees - Great office building at HQ. (Basketball court, large field, really nice gym, showers) - Fast paced work that keeps you busy.

    Cons

    - Underpaid for the amount of work they put you through, - Managers will lie to you, even if they are easy to get along with. - If you don't bro-culture to their bro-standards... it can be a little awkward (I tried) - No matter how much good work you put out, how good your reviews, or how much you are improving, you are expendable in the end. - No room for growth. At the most you'll go from "Job Title" to "Senior Job Title"

    Pros

    The company provides great benefits, and the people who work there are amazing. They do a lot of employee relations things, like BBQs on fridays in the summer, a Santa party around Christmas, and a lot of departmental contests. Also there is a fantastic gym onsite and aminos on tap :)

    Cons

    The communication between departments in this company is not good. Terrible might be a better word. They need to assume the best in people and invest in specific learning and development programs in all departments, which might be some time, since they just had to reduce the workforce.

    Better Then Than Now!

    Mar 20, 2015 - Customer Service Representative in Boise, ID

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, and great opportunity outside of customer service.

    Cons

    Personal growth and promotions are hard to come by unless you are a personal friend of the boss. I worked in customer service for over 6 years, and felt disrespected instead of valued for my insight. Anywhere in the company is wonderful, except CS. HR is useless when making legitimate managerial complaints, and will rarely take the side of the employee. Time-off used to be easy to get, but leadership in customer service changed, so that changed as well.
