Life Time Fitness - A pretty from the outside, ugly on the inside, way of life company

Operations Technician (Current Employee) Chanhassen, MN

ProsThey promote a healthy culture and have great facilities.
Flashy name.
Trendy industry.
Leftover tickets to sporting events sometimes trickle down from the C-suite.

ConsLow pay/poor benefits.
Low morale.
Unfair/Unjust promotion practices.
HR department that is out of touch.
Conflicts of interest with vendors.
A legal department that has it's hands on too much of the business.
Life Time Fitness is just another public company where the executives and the board are working for the stock and not taking care of the employees or the members.
Decreasing benefits/increased benefit cost for non-executive employees = "effective lower pay".
Ineffective leadership in the C-suite and director levels.
A very reactive culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop, grow and retain talent, give them a reason to stay.
Make an appearance to the office once in a while, take the time to get to know your employees before they turnover.
Higher a good recruiter.
Don't tell employees times are tough, then go patting everybody on the back in the C-suite doling out raises and bonuses.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
