    A once great company is completely lost...

    Pros

    The benefits are decent. The nature of the place gives you a good fitness education and inspires you to work out. There's a mostly empty gym available to employees 24/7. The employees work hard, but the culture is still laid back.

    Cons

    The biggest problem with this place has got to be the leadership (or what's left of it). They've had opportunity after opportunity to make good decisions that propel the company forward, but just can't seem to make good choices. They make false promises, and can't stick to a plan. They don't listen to what the customers want, and have allowed their once great reputation to dissolve away. This is a dying company, and no longer a place to grow a career. It might be a good bridge job, but I wouldn't bet my future on it. They also recently sold HQ to another company and have lost ownership of most of the building. It's not really a place you want to be at 40hrs a week.

    Pros

    The gym was pretty nice to have during a pandemic

    Cons

    I saw a lot of really good people get pushed around at this company. Management is incredibly toxic and self serving. The leadership here has no real interest in building a good product. They only are interested in making themselves look good in front of the CEO. In the time that I was there essentially every idea they had was tried out to about a 15% completion, leaving no room for any real changes... good or bad. Hence the deterioration of their site and app. A few more gold nuggets... I saw upper management turn on each other, often. They would fight and talk badly behind each others backs, until the good ones would get pushed out of the company. I also saw them lay off pregnant women and folks whose wives were 9 months pregnant.

    Don’t Bother

    Pros

    Good benefits and okay salary, but neither are worth the lack of job security, high stress and poor culture the company curates.

    Cons

    High stress, low career fulfillment. Management does a poor job at communicating goals and changes directions constantly. Good performance is not rewarded and small issues are the focus instead of the big picture. A lot of big promises and wasted effort when the ship changes direction, it’s extremely hard to be successful when they keep changing the desired goal. Too many managers and not enough do-era. Constant shifts in company structure also make it difficult for employees to find success and grow.

    Pros

    - Employee discount - I like the people I worked with

    Cons

    - Longterm employees have been jumping ship since I started due to nonexistent appreciation (read: money). Talent is grossly underpaid. - No direction and zero transparency from c-level leadership. What do they even do besides pat themselves on the back during our quarterly all-hands meetings? - HR unfortunately got rid of the only person with integrity on their team; the rest (especially at the top) are all liars with no regard for bbcom employees. - Layoffs were handled so, so poorly. Employees who had given the company a better part of a decade were offered NO SEVERANCE. And HR claims severance had never been offered in the history of the company -- again, lies from the top. - Nobody knows what they're working on or if it'll even matter in the coming weeks because priorities and direction shift daily. - Company morale has been low and management is very much aware of it but do nothing to improve it. - Management's MO: "I really don't care, do you?"
