    Pros

    Excellent 401k match, wfh flexibility, unlimited PTO, great free gym.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, even for Idaho. No job security. There is no leadership at this company, only titles. The direction to take the company changes on a dime because the c suite does not know how to save this failing company; they will say it is because they are in a transformation state, but that is because they are unwilling to accept when they have made mistakes. After the recent layoffs and the massive amount of attrition, the office is a ghost town and there is barely anyway to get anything done. People have been fired for simply being transparent with their managers with constructive criticism. This is a company looking solely for 'Yes' men or women who are willing to do whatever is dictated to them and ask no questions. The CDO of the company seems to be completely clueless about everything and is unwilling to accept any feedback. This is all a shame because the overall mission of the company and the industry itself, are very motivating and fascinating.

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

    Pros

    -Employees are empowered to make changes -Flexible work hours and work from home opportunities -No micromanagement -Strong female leadership in e-commerce -Ability to impact decisions at all levels -Opportunities for growth and advancement With the recent departure of the former Chief Digital Officer the company and environment have significantly improved. The focus shifted from one man’s egotistical dictatorship to a much more open, collaborative environment. The SVP of E-Commerce is smart, decisive and focuses her energy and team on driving meaningful change.

    Cons

    Still some hangover from old, “not my job” culture causes some accountability issues Certain departments continue to drag their feet and over process instead of thinking how a project could help drive the business.
