    Pros

    - The software engineers are some of the finest I have worked with. Most are passionate and have a constant value on improving.
    - Upper management is easy to talk to.
    - Open to partial remote and working 4 10 hour days.

    Cons

    - Constant shifting or priorities.
    - Little to no planning which leads to a chicken with their heads cut off mentality.
    - Poor processes especially in the Agile / Scrum department.
    - Lack of professionalism from the business and dev support staff.
    - Be prepared to put your time and money behind your own skill increase. There is no 'money in the budget' for advancement of skill.
    - Company seems like it doesn't want a dev department and instead would be interested in just hiring contractors.
    - Dev support staff and middle management is often times scared of saying to to stake holders regarding deadlines that are unreachable leading to a combative and stressful environment.
    - 401k is one of the worst I have seen.
    - Be prepared for nepotism at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    - Increase benefits to keep and attract talent.
    - Better planning, following of Agile practices and less shifting of priorities will be a great asset to delivering a quality product.
    - It Works says they want to get better, but actions speak louder than words.

    I worked at It Works! Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my 4 years at It Works! Corporate I had some of the most challenging AND rewarding times. I made lifelong friendships and achieved the dedication of a spirited and talented team. Thinking of joining a group of go-getters who push the bounds of creativity? Develop phenomenal products? Just go for it! The corporate team are hardworking hard-playing pros that get out what they put in!

    Cons

    There are times of long hours on large projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I mean, I guess some of the people I met were really nice

    Cons

    They make you pay monthly for your website on top of making you meet a quota each month in order to get paid. They make you move people all around underneath you in order to build your team. True pyramid to get to the top, which is next to impossible. Products don't work.

    I worked at It Works! Global part-time

    Pros

    Potentially you could make a lot of money... basically by scamming people with products that don't work and definitely aren't all "natural".

    Cons

    Company sells products that are ridiculoisly expensive. They don't work as well as the distributors say they do. I take biotin and collagen and it works 100x better than their products too. Also look at the ingredients inside these products.. they are definitely not natural. Management seemed nice from the outside but fellow distributors are not very helpful or nice. They seemed to be rude and greedy over the money they got, they didn't care about others.

    Pros

    To achieve success in this business I have to help a lot of people! That means I have to get out of my comfort zone!! Which grows me as a person and hundred of lives so to be thousands of lives will be changed!

    Cons

    I wish there was more time in the day to reach all the people who need either our amazing products our business opportunity or both!!

    There are old distributors that were or aren’t willing to do the WORK!! Yes this is work and expect to achieve a pay check! Then want to bash the company and CEO ! Nonsense

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about the company.

    Cons

    Strict rules about canceling "anything" and they don't care about their independent distributors or their customers. They just want to make a buck at your expense.

    I worked at It Works! Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great team, the company manages to attract great talent
    - Good opportunities for sideways progression
    - Good insight into the way a global company is run
    - The company in Dublin is small so making change is possible, less red tape than in the US

    Cons

    - Huge turnover in the marketing team, I was there for over 1.5 years and there was over 100% turnover in the team in Dublin
    - Out of hours work is expected and unrewarded i.e. launch calls at 9pm on Saturday night, 17 hour days at events but unpaid
    - Reactive strategy, unclear direction, unclear budgets
    - The marketing department is entirely process driven, little room for creativity
    - Unpleasant atmosphere to work in, low moral, low energy, atmosphere of fear

    Advice to Management

    - Hire yes people
    - Send a survey to staff asking for feeback, make it anonymous to get honest feedback as people are afraid to give honest feedback for fear they will get sacked
    - Show staff that you value them with actions, not words.

    Pros

    Meet new people, pretty much the ONLY pro. Join a gym or a church, you can do the same thing there.

    Cons

    Unsustainable, everyone really only cares about themselves and the money they make. Products are NOT natural- if you listen to any holistic podcast or read a blog, you'll quickly learn that the products they're touting as 'natural' are not natural at all. Also, they want to sell you something like collage peptides for WAY too much money. I've been taking collagen for years for WAY cheaper and much higher quality. Don't get sucked in.

    Advice to Management

    I was a Double Diamond when I finally quit and I would NEVER recommend this company or its scam-like products to anyone. Hang it up, It Works, people are sick and tired of you and your distributors.
