    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free membership to their beautiful gyms; good and interesting people to work with; company is rapidly expanding so it could be exciting to work for a company growing as such.

    Cons

    In corporate it is low pay and ridiculously low increases year over year. You work very hard for minimal raises that don't even cover the cost of living increases - which are very high in New York. They don't appreciate anyone who isn't sitting in a Director's office or higher.

    Advice to Management

    Try to pretend you care about your employees a bit. Appreciate what they do instead of treating them like garbage.

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros about Equinox is their clubs are gorgeous! However beware, as an employee there are so many restrictions that you can almost never use them unless you have a job where you can actually work out in the middle of the day. Since Equinox doesn't hire enough people per department this was practically an impossibility for me.

    Cons

    NO work life balance. You don't even get federal holidays off. The training and on-boarding experience is terrible. There was little to none in my department. Turnover is higher than I have ever seen at a corporate level and either Equinox is aware of the root of the problem and doesn't care or plans to continue the revolving door. I have never worked for a worse company. Unless you are desperate for a job my advice it to stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Care as much as the "employee experience" as you do your beloved member experience. Without your employees you can't effectively operate. Treat them better so they all don't leave.
