company on its last legs
Executive (Former Employee) –  Santa MonicaMay 23, 2018
Nobody has any idea how the company can move forward. Massive layoffs for the last two years. Absolutely no direction. Absolutely no one is interested in anyone's opinion except the CEO and his original idea is no longer viable (nobody watches infomercials anymore). Unbelievable political environment that makes working here awful. Too many other jobs in the world to take one here.
Pros
free bananas; otherwise, none
Cons
worst work envirnment you can imagine

Hope it survives
Senior Director (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAMay 1, 2018
Has the makings of a great company, and was heading there until it wasn't. There are a lot of smart people who care about what they're doing. The culture has a lot of positive aspects, but like any company, there are some pitfalls like politics and cliques.

CEO is too hands on

Creative Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAApril 5, 2018
I really would not wish to comment on a place like this as there are not enough words to describe it. A whole book would be needed followed by many more volumes thereafter.
Pros
compensation
Cons
everything else.

Close to home

Constantly changing.

Great home job
Coach\Volunteer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 18, 2018
I love working for beachbody and all of the opportunities it presents. I am able to control my own schedule and how much I earn is based off of how much work i put into my job. It is a great way to work from home while still having a life, including a full time job elsewhere.

Not a Great Technology Company
Permanent. Sr.Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAMarch 3, 2018
Company has a nice atmosphere. Free Shakes, Snacks, Coffee and Fruits. Gym on Site and decent benefits package. Unlimited PTO and as it may seem to many as a positive it was actually a negative as you don't get compensated if you don't use your days and it's subject to manager's approval. Leadership overestimates Growth. Cost accounting doesn't exist and they frequently find them selves having to cut cost later by Laying off people. Layoffs are very frequent almost once every year and in the last year alone we had 2 layoffs 9 months apart. Company Revenue is declining as nearly 80% of the business revenue is concentrated on the shakelogy product . Many Managers and VPs in the technology Department don't encourage employee growth. no paid training as part of the cost cutting process. no Real Direction to as where the department is going or trying to accomplish. Corporate Politics is very common at Beachbody and many hiring and firing decisions are made based on personal relationships and how much your manage likes you rather than your qualifications or skill set.

Every role is a temporary one
Director of Operations (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAMarch 1, 2018
Beachbody has two major problems; it’s People Dept and ICT. Senior staff have been promoted over the years just because of time served, not because they are partIcularly skilful. I could not recommend Beachbody to potential new recruits.
Pros
Nice offices, free shakes.
Cons
Lack of career prospects, always feeling you could be laid off.

Strong Brand Image
Independent Wellness Coach (Current Employee) –  Lexington-Fayette, KYFebruary 28, 2018
Beachbody is a strong brand and being an independent coach is great when you want flexibility and scheduling on your own terms. Product is great and always changing.

Working under micro managing
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAFebruary 26, 2018
For the most part my time at Beachbody was very enjoyable a long with being a very fast paced work environment. I was able to build on skills that I already had so that I could perform my job task to the best and beyond my abilities. When I first started there the management was great but along the way new managers came in and created a much more stressful atmosphere. I would rate the management there now average to poor due to micro managing and threats of employment. What I enjoyed most.. .

I've loved working at Beachbody. It's a positive work environment filled with individuals who are passionate about the products the company creates and who not only talk the talk but who also walk the walk.

intern (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAFebruary 5, 2018
Fun place to work with a cool culture, but things have changed a lot in recent years. Turnover is fairly high as many employees are actually contractors.

Core values do not mean a thing
Technician (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAFebruary 1, 2018
Management does not practice what they preach. They do not protect their teams or take pride in them. They have been quick to find fault, place blame, and assume the worst about their team members.

this is not a place for fun.
Corporate Escalations Representative (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAJanuary 30, 2018
Keep in mind that you are an employee and keep it. No one is your friend, they use this for feedback to ensure that no HR issue are unseen. Anything dealing with your foothold within the company is kept as a secret until they decide it is needed to inform you to avoid a lawsuit. The company itself is built on misleading you, so do not assume that they will not mislead their employees.
Pros
Free workout areas and workout streaming service "For work use"
Cons
no matter what position you hold, it will be temp.

Nepotism Runs Rampant

There is no point for normal people to apply to this company. They only hire and promote family members now. Everyone else is out of the picture for this company.
Pros
Close to my home
Cons
Nepotism, Discrimination, Lack of Career Growth
