    I worked at Motionsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. The most hardworking group of people who I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
    2. An amazing CEO (I think he is now the Chairman) in Al Noshirvani who takes time to say hello and chat whenever he is in the office
    3. A dynamic industry with very cool clients like Equinox, Golds Gym
    4. Metro accessible
    5. Free gym membership!
    6. Pretty cool office space
    7. Great employee get togethers
    8. Upward mobility was becoming possible when I was leaving which was a big + given there was no such thing before!

    Cons

    1. Benefits are a bit pricey
    2. Project surges that are sometimes a bit overwhelming
    3. Hire more people faster

    Advice to Management

    Keep plugging away and try and get some backup for your people. Your team loves you or they wouldnt stick around but people will get tired

    Pros

    -Great open door policy with all senior and management staff.
    -Al knows everyone by name and takes the time to make conversation and ask about your kids
    -Work Hard, Play Hard is a common theme. Fun activities to do such as wine & cheese night, summer picnic at the Nats Stadium, bowling alley for the holiday party, food truck party, casino night etc.
    -beautiful new space in Rockville that encourages interaction with co-workers due to the work furniture/layout.
    -wonderful staff and from my experiences, everyone does lend a hand when needed.

    Cons

    health insurance is expensive
    compensation is lower than what I needed

    Advice to Management

    its always busy around here and often personal training advancements are overlooked due to the more pressuring items at hand. Better processes in place are needed for such a fast growing company.

    I have been working at Motionsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Right now with our new products and our brand recognition within our space, Motionsoft is in a prime position to further the high growth trajectory it has experienced over the last several years. The leadership of the CEO alongside the EVPs of Marketing and Financial Services have provided a vision and leadership that makes all employees and staff feel they are a part of something special.

    Cons

    Lack of proper mentorship, there could be more support and leadership for the sales team. Operations could be improved further.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key for ALL the staff. Creating leadership opportunities to make all feel there is room to grow along with the organization. More support for teams in different departments of the company (team building exercises, knowledge bases and resources, mentorship).

    Pros

    Fast growing company in a very dynamic space - the health and fitness industry

    Cons

    Some initial product challenges that the company is working through

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the staff that got you into the product rewrite project regardless of how difficult the change may be. The space is booming and the company has to come first. NO SACRED COWS!
