Executive (Former Employee) – Santa Monica – May 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.
Senior Director (Current Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – May 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.
Sales Support Specialist (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – March 21, 2018
Fun workplace with full gym and fruit provided. Different shifts and times available for work. Company is very generous. Ever changing environment involves growth pains and unexpected adjustments, many times without any warning.
Coach\Volunteer (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 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.
Permanent. Sr.Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – March 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.
Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – March 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.
Nice offices, free shakes.
Lack of career prospects, always feeling you could be laid off.
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – February 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.. .
N/A (Current Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – February 13, 2018
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.

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.
