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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Have not found anything to like here - the Gym is nice but after a few months you will not have time to use it. Oh - the bathrooms are in the gym - thats not a Pro....

    Cons

    No Leadership Team. C Level is weak on leadership and this trickles down throughout the entire company making everyone suffer
    No Communications from management on upcoming projects/current project
    No Status Meetings
    No formal Process
    IT Department is a joke. - There is no leader. When you step up you get shot down.
    Extrememe workload with no help
    No Teamwork - just a bunch of individuals trying to get through the day
    Lunch was at my desk every day
    No friendly people
    No job career growth
    No encenives to work harder
    no bonus
    no salery increases
    no review process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep saying you are an 800Mil company - act like one. You still run this as a mom and pop shop. Listen to your employees - turnover here is high (Why???) - See above
