    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great 401K Match, Great Benefits, FTO, (Although, at one point we had to write our name on an 8ft by 10ft White Board Calendar for days we were taking off. Usually wouldn't be an issue, until the statement of "We will see who wants to keep writing their name up there" was made), Gym

    Cons

    Serious Micromanagement (other departments asking to be included in marketing planning, not for visibility but for approval, seemingly pulling mandate outside of their area of focus). Lack of trust in mid-level management and specialist level. Complete lack of knowledge in processes and workflow complexities. Short-term leadership outlook. Leaders lack tact (C-Suite employees stating they "forget what it's like to be one of you" from a stage at an all-hands meeting). Monotonous work (sale, sale, sale), churning and burning eCommerce discounts, which pulls time and resources away from things that should be number one priority (content, subscriptions, etc.). Customer-first focus is whimsical, not tangible.

    Pros

    Good place to work with great benefits. Compared to my wife's benefits with a bigger company in town we are better off with mine. The company cares about employees and even in hard times still takes care of us.

    Cons

    We still have too many employees that don't care about their jobs or the company leaving work for everyone else on the team and company. The company is too slow to get rid of dead weight.

    I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I left Bodybuilding.com to attend grad school and I found myself coming back after graduating because of: * great benefits (high 401K match, great medical/dental) * awesome people (encouraging, growth-minded, like family) * flexibility (no set clock in/out times, a couple remote days/week) * FTO available immediately (not accrued) * seeing how our company is literally changing peoples' lives for the better! * Focus on development (person and professional)

    Cons

    Now we share the building with the building owners and parking has been more difficult because of that. That's literally the only thing I can think of.

    Pros

    Super company with great benefits. From day one they made this the best career move ever. Recruiting me was the best experience I have ever had with a company. New plans for the company future are energizing and promising. Most people are here to make the company successful. Good vibes mostly.

    Cons

    Sour and negative employees that are not down for change and make it bad for new employees who want to succeed personally and help the company succeed. Work a lot of hours but mainly it is because there are a lot of lazy employees left from the past. Not even balanced working hours for people on same teams is not fair.

    Pros

    Great benefits. The work-life balance is utterly amazing, along with the company supporting fitness and health.

    Lack of career development. This is a great starting point to leap off to a different company down the road.

    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company provides great benefits, and the people who work there are amazing. They do a lot of employee relations things, like BBQs on fridays in the summer, a Santa party around Christmas, and a lot of departmental contests. Also there is a fantastic gym onsite and aminos on tap :)

    Cons

    The communication between departments in this company is not good. Terrible might be a better word. They need to assume the best in people and invest in specific learning and development programs in all departments, which might be some time, since they just had to reduce the workforce.

    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits, free supplements, samples, great discount, and you able to meet some amazing and famous people in the industry.

    Cons

    There is only black and white there, I went in initially with training and told management I had a disability and ended up being let go because of the defaults of my disability. They tell you your job is Customer Services but in the end it's about your numbers, metrics, and sales, sales, sales
