    I have been working at MINDBODY full-time (More than a year)

    * 20 days PTO, 3 sick days, plus paid holidays
    * $65/month wellness program for use with gyms, salons, etc.
    * Stock options and employee stock purchase program
    * Yearly merit increases and bonus program
    * Affordable, onsite daycare
    * Frequent events for employees
    * Management truly cares for it's employees
    * Great work environment, culture, and co-workers
    * Benefits are not amazing, but better than a lot of tech companies
    * Beautiful area with lots of activities and things to see

    Cons

    * Processes and infrastructure are not as mature as some other places
    * Results in more reaction to problems and band aids than proactive preventative measures (but things are getting better!)
    * Lots of compartmentalization and internally staking out of turf.
    * Housing in the San Luis Obispo area is expensive and in short supply

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of, override, or force aside managers who stand in the way of streamlining and improving the product . There are too many applications, too many processes, and too much of multiple processes all trying to accomplish the same thing. Interdependencies make it difficult to troubleshoot and fix problems. There's no automation for software builds, deployments, or testing. These things hold us back.

    Pros

    There are TONS too many to list

    Cons

    Naysayers. We need to find a way to turn the naysayers into believers that truly believe in the future of our company. We need to find a way to help them understand and embrace change of our continuously growing organization. If they are unable to do that, we need to help them find the courage to move on. The reason why is because negativity impacts the vibe of our culture and poor attitudes result in low productivity. We have plenty of positive people that work here but the negative ones are mighty, and it only takes one bad apple to spoil the bunch. Human beings can only listen to so much negativity before taking on the darkness themselves, especially if they sit right next to it. And some of the negative naysayers deliberately pull others into their web. Frankly it is exhausting. It would be glorious if they were capable of finding the courage to adapt or have the courage to find themselves something new. It can feel defeating as a co-worker because you can’t make them. Our company doesn’t fit into a perfect box nor should it be expected to. It is a living, breathing, and growing organization that exists in the high-pressure world of technology where the weak get left behind and the strong have to dig in and fight to survive every day. There is no easy route and there is no clear path to perfection. We need grit, work ethic, and positivity within our ranks. That is how we move forward and get better.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders, at all levels, are the easiest and most convenient to blame. It is in your benefit and to the benefit of all to be clear in why the company does things that we do so that teams have a clear understanding behind decisions or changes – no matter how large or small. Hearing about them from senior leaders is also helpful. When the why is left out it encourages gloom to be added to a bottle that is sure to overflow at some point.

    I worked at MINDBODY full-time

    Pros

    Lots of amazing people to work with and a great small town feel if that's what you're interested in.

    Cons

    The executive team wouldn't invest in long-term projects with appropriate support. Projects were shipped without measuring results. Which led to projects not succeeding and then being abandoned.

    Pros

    I love working here because it feels like family. It is challenging work ( not for people who are not willing to put in the effort) but extremely rewarding. Equal opportunities within the company and always looking for talent. It is rewarding to be compensated for the work you put in. This company has allowed me to push my limits beyond what I thought possible and achieve my dreams of being a homeowner. I am extremely grateful for opportunity to prove myself and them believing in me.

    Cons

    Some days are harder than others, for instance when the company makes changes. It takes some time to adjust and there is a learning curve but as long as you put in effort it attainable. I would say 95% of the people are amazing, there are a few bad eggs but you can tell when someone has negative energy. Typically those people end up leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to inspire and make work enjoyable

    Don't play favorites, be fair to everyone, treat each person as an individual instead of a "one size fits all" leadership
