    I worked at Healthy Directions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of wonderful people working in this office and you will make friends very quickly, no matter your age. Regular happy hours have even former employees coming back to hang out. HR is great. The office is very well kept, clean, organized, and modern. Free fruit/veggies are provided to employees every other day. Manager styles vary, but the ones I've had were very understanding and supportive. I really loved working here for the past 4 and a half years on both the digital marketing team and the creative team.

    Cons

    Working from home is frowned upon which is a pain point for a lot of employees, especially the younger ones. If you're looking for a job with a lot of flexibility and a modern, trusting leadership style this may not be the best place for you. Everyone has their own experience and there are obviously other cons, like any office, but for the most part it is a pretty good place to work for most people!

    Pros

    Access to great supplements, and good collaboration with the marketing team

    Cons

    The work can get monotonous after a year or so. The marketing strategy dictates the creative, and the company is not very quick to adopt new methods and ideas.
