    I worked at Life Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Discount on gym, flexible working hours

    Cons

    VP driven organization with old fashion way of managing business, meeting culture, no feeling for people and processes (all very ad hoc), big gap between managment and 'normal' associates (who are not happy), only short term focus, no clear vision on strategy, VP seems to be deciding everything, too many layers (matrix), very disorganized and conservative, management is too commercial driven and do not understand the bigger picture, arrogant management, management is more worried about who is driving the most expensive company car, high turnover of staff,
    running behind the facts all day (all very ad hoc), poor systems (no investment made for many years for no clear reason)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get ride of current management and get some fresh blood in with proper skill sets (both personally as professionally).

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Life Fitness

    Pros

    Flexible work environment...in the field. Managers are usually supportive of strong efforts by their reps.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility. Usually have to re-locate to move up with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to evaluate product lines and adjust faster to the changing marketplace in the health club world.
