    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Beachbody full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health focused workplace / Up-to-date office.

    Cons

    Poor Employee Culture. Little to no personal development outside workouts. Most decision making driven by fear. Company celebrates the MLM members more than the actual employees on all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Completely restructure your "People" department (HR) and find a way to connect with your employees outside of the job they do.

    Pros

    Coaches are the #1 priority for the company. This is a 100% MLM company so if you want that kind of culture then you'll love it. In the beginning, one of the best companies to work for. Not anymore. Good salary (golden HANDCUFFS).

    Cons

    Outside of coaches, everyone else else is treated like 2nd rate trash.
    Exec. Mgmt overspending at expense of bonuses
    HR Dept. represents the CEO & President (not the employees - CAUTION)
    CEO surrounded by rotten, poisonous people but because of heritage with these ppl, he keeps them, tho' he recognizes how rotten they are. Not necessarily the most talented ppl just slaves to his every demand. Hence uber politics because these rots report everything they don't like about you to the CEO, even personal stuff.
    Imagine if the company practiced its core values from top to bottom, sideways and inside out...that would be a great company to work for - it was for a little while.
