    I have been working at Genesis Today full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I have so many great things to say about GT especially in the last few years as SO many changes have been made, but let me just summarize with the top things that I think make this company stand out among the rest: 1. Small company with LOTS of opportunity 2. Responsive management that cares about it's employees 3. Great culture and working environment with intelligent, funny and friendly co-workers 4. The number...

    Cons

    When I first started working here in 2012 we had over 100 employees so insurance benefits were great, now that we are smaller the benefits are not as good but still pretty decent compared to the market place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring talented and intelligent people as we continue to grow!

    Pros

    My paycheck came regularly. Most coworkers are awesome.

    Cons

    Founder is an insane maniac. Expect to be thrown under the bus by other managers trying to hide from his wrath. This is the most unethical and corrupt place I've ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Sell it already. I can't believe you're still in business given how really badly you treat your people.

    Pros

    There is a great set of individuals at this company. It is a core group of people who want to make a change with healthy and great tasting superfood products. The company has monthly social hours and other great benefits. With previous management it may not have been this way but things are changing for the better and there is a strong commitment to re-forming the brand to uphold brand recognition as well as quality.

    Cons

    It is a smaller company right now, so you tend to wear a lot of hats. Management is good at checking in to make sure work load is manageable. Right now there is not a ton of positions to move into, it would be expected when the company grows a little more.

      I worked at Genesis Today full-time

      Pros

      It's scary when you look at these reviews and see a 2 star rating. But that's all due to the old regime, so don't pay any attention to them. Bill (the CEO) has a great head on his shoulders and he and the rest of the team are steadily increasing the opportunities and ability to succeed. Genesis Today is definitely trending up and it's easy to see why. The products are terrific, there's a great story behind them...

      Cons

      It's a small company -- basically a startup. I like the small feel of the company, so it's a pro to me, but some people might consider it a con.

      Pros

      Kept the bills paid for a minute.

      Cons

      Every synonym of disaster except when it says accidental. The tragedy was planned and avoidable.

      Advice to Management

      If they only listened months ago, there might be something to say. Dead "leaders"

      I worked at Genesis Today

      Pros

      Great article on Dec 8/12 in the ABJ touting all the great things new leadership has done....

      Cons

      The article is full of lies and misleading information. What kind of successful management needs to spread lies about previous leadership to build themselves up? The answer is failing leadership. Cameras were not "plastered all over the building" and were not there to "monitor employees moves" - this is simply urban legend, and sad executive leadership is so gullible they believe the old rumors. Security cameras people!...

      Advice to Management

      Wise up - people who have nothing to hide don't care if security cameras can see them - so the people left must be bottom of the barrel at this point if that's their biggest concern. Come on man, tell the truth...tout your own accomplishments, don't run down the past to try to make yourself look good. Be a professional, quit whining and do something to bring the company back - you've had plenty of time now....

      Pros

      I was able to add a lot to my resume. I have made wonderful friends that I still keep in touch with today.

      Cons

      Absolutely everything else. I hated the person I had become.

      Advice to Management

      I've heard the malevolent duo is gone, so that has to make a tremendous difference.

      Pros

      Great products, big discount on products, environment of progressive lifestyle thinkers.

      Cons

      Snap decisions and poor judgments by executive team created lack of sense of security and distrust.

      Advice to Management

      Hire based on talent and insight, not 'super hires' from the big league. They don't always believe in your product.
