Undervalued

Club Support Manager (Former Employee)
Leeds, England (UK)

I worked at David Lloyd Leisure full-time for more than 3 years

ProsTeam members are good fun to work with.

ConsPoor unsociable hours and weak pay structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementRather than moving weak members of staff from department to department rather move these people out of your business and invest your time into members of staff who are wanting to develop, otherwise they will move on. Too many members of staff with a lot to offer have left.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
