I worked at Beachbody full-time

Pros

Free supplement products in the kitchen, nice food at parties.

Cons

Loud, arrogant, self-serving, inexperienced people sitting shoulder to shoulder in a sweatshop environment. Chaos and fear seem to run this place. No on-site parking is available if you are a new employee. Parking is available on the street, but you've got to move your car every 2 hours to avoid a ticket and even then, if the parking guy knows your car, you might get a ticket if you only move it to the other side of the street. Otherwise, you have to park in another building that is 1/4 mile away and take a shuttle to and from the Beachbody location. If you kiss ass enough you might go far. Egos of most management is over-the-top, along with clique-ish behavior and overly competitive mean-spirited turds make this place one of the most undesirable work environments in the Los Angeles area. BEWARE!!! BEWARE!!! BEWARE!!!

Advice to Management

Take your paychecks and go out for drinks with your egos.

    "Reviews written by "coaches" or "sales reps" skew the ratings more positive than it should be."

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

    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.

    Pros

    If you do enjoy "working" the company and "sharing" with every single person you meet or know then you have a chance of making money. They are very fair in terms of what they will pay you if you are active and you can actually make some money.

    Cons

    This company is overall a nice company with a fair compensation plan if you are active and can work the numbers. It is a bit of a cult and there are a lot of religious undertones to the very active top coaches.

    Advice to Management

    Management can do a bit of a better job with getting new or not very active coaches to be more engaging with potential customers. Their philosophy is that its all about sharing your story. You have to have an amazing story to have any chance of making real money.
