    Cons

    Since TSI went public over 10 years ago this company has completely spiraled downward in every aspect of business, they have become the second coming of BALLY'S. (probably worse)

    TSI's greed has single handedly destroyed a once pround and fun fitness industry.

    - Take it from an employee of close to three years, if you have pride, dignity, loyalty, honesty and a strong work ethic, please stay away from this company. You are worthless to them, they will use you, burn you out then throw you to the curb. I've seen it many, many times.

    - They do not care about members or employees, make no mistake, their number one goal it to maximise stockholder wealth at all cost, PERIOD. They are in the business to sell stock using fitness as a front and the employees are their expendable tools.

    - Their coroporate governance is lead by a team of repetative falures with absolutely no vision. From top to bottom TSI management is completely incompetent and lack leadership skills of any kind. They only understand one philosophy, management by fear, because they know deep down they themselves can get the axe at anytime, so the paranoia is passed down through the ranks of management.

    - Bob G. the CEO is a throwback personal trainer from the 80's who has zero business education or acumen whatsoever. He has failed at his position repeatedly yet still gets to keep his job mainly because no person is desparate enough to take his position. His job is to try and keep the stock price up by maintaining an artificial harmonious and productive work environment for the stockholders. While his orders his direct reports to keep up the unbearable micromanagement pressure to drive sales and cut expenses down to the last penny.

    - TSI abuses it's employees through anger, threats and intimidation. They have created a toxic environment in an industry that is supposed to promote good health.

     - Including the CEO position, TSI is a high turnover company, that's so poorly managed it's impossible to stay, even if you succeed.

    - Employee theft and dishonestly are rampant.

    - Pay is poverty level, minimum wage at best. And if you think you're lucky being paid a salary don't be fooled, they will stretch your hours and make you do the work of multiple employees to make your salary less then minimum wage.

    - TSI is a bait and switch company.

    - Members hide your Credit Cards and don't sign anything unless you have a lawyer read it first!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who knows how to run a successful business.

    Pros

    free gym membership, flexible schedules, discounted personal training

    insulting hourly pay, management hates their job so you start to ate your job too

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when you walk around your place of work with an attitude, you send the message to everyone around you that you hate your job. when you complain about work in front of your employees, they lack respect for you.
