    I worked at It Works! Global full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast pace company with a flat structure that allows employees the opportunity to work directly with senior management to develop the companies market strategy. Having direct access allows the employee to promote achievements. As a small organisation this provides opportunity to works in multiple business areas. Excellent team full of enthusiasm and potential. Fast changing requirements so you are never bored in work....

    Cons

    The pace is fast and often challenging. Sometimes it feels unplanned and unorganised this a part of the trade off to bring products quickly to the market. As an entrepreneurial company it often changes plans and strategy this can be uncomfortable for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    My view is focus on the triangle of success 1.quality (brand, product), 2.service (delivery) and 3.cost (margin, competitiveness) with the customers and employees in the centre. The company likes sports analogies without the team or fans there's no game.

    I worked at It Works! Global for more than a year

    Pros

    Told every month to cold message everyone I have ever connected with in social media! It’s nice to meet people, but they didn’t want to hear from me like that. Get paid to sell junk. They know they don’t work because they replace them so much.

    Cons

    It costs a fortune. I was told to “promote” just order a few times, move the order to someone in my down line. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Cost us $5500 by the time we said enough. .

    Advice to Management

    Shut your doors and quit screwing people. You will all go to hell for this!

    Pros

    If you enjoy a fast pace, taking charge and earning recognition, this is likely the place for you. If that appeals to you, you will surely never be bored here.

    Cons

    Not for everyone, you have to enjoy, or even thrive in less than perfectly organized environments, as the nature of the business makes it quite volatile and fast-paced it is not a good fit for every type of personality.

    Advice to Management

    Create a clearer separation of what belongs in the US side and in the International side, both sides would benefit.

    I have been working at It Works! Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Have been at It Works! for over a year and a half in the Marketing Department. It's an exciting and dynamic place to work. Management and owners are very open to new ideas, new ways of working, new uses of new technology for the industry and really building cohesion with the brand globally. I'm excited to be a part of it and love the hands-on feeling of our work together. Anything is possible here!

    Cons

    Honestly shocked by some of the reviews here! Of course no company is perfect but It Works for me comes close. It's rare for people at my level (and above and below) to have such a connection to Senior Leaders and have such an impact on the brand. At larger corporations, we'd all be sitting in grey cubicles looking at spreadsheets. And there is not that level of turnover at all that people have listed so don't listen...

    Pros

    I've been with It Works a long time and I've been promoted in my time here. I love the culture and the fundamentals of why this company exists. Everyone company goes through growth and change, and it's been for the better with It Works. Such a fun company to work for, so many internal promotions and recognition for hard word.

    Cons

    Nothing to say here thanks

    Advice to Management

    Continue to nurture your team, continue to encourage internal promotions, maybe offer a little more in terms of leadership training for junior members to help them grow.

    Cons

    You often need to put a lot of effort and longer hours. If you want an easy 9-5 job, it's not a place for you. The company moves fast. If you don't cope well with change you will not enjoy it here. The company expects initiative and self-starter attitude. You will often need to act on very limited information. If you don't cope well with uncertainty and you are a person that requires a lot of direction, you may...

    Pros

    Amazing group of people. Everyone working hard to get things done. A lot of opportunities to learn and grow The company is evolving all the time which opens up chances to take on more responsibilities. Relatively small team in the Dublin office means that most people wear many hats - which enables people to learn new things and makes the job more interesting.

    Cons

    Depends what you're looking for. It's a very dynamic environment, with a lot of changes. Sometimes might feel a little chaotic or unorganised but that's what happens when you grow and want to quickly react to the changing business situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and make sure to communicate as much as possible.
