    Pros

    Generally, very easy work and a lot of down time when classes are in session.

    Cons

    Management needs improvement in areas of communication and leadership. Also, need to increase pay. $12/hr for bay area cost of living is outrageous.

    Pros

    - Great staff and members. You cannot get a better community like this one
    - Technology is top notch
    - Taking Classes when possible... which is probably once or twice a week.

    Cons

    - Extremely poor upper management. Direct supervisor is neither empathetic nor approachable.
    - Pay is not nearly enough for the amount of hours you put it. Pulling from another review, "A Business Roller-coaster," work/life balance is completely non-exisitant due to the expectation to be on call 24/7.
    - Burning out and feeling like you cannot keep your head above water.
    - Weather your the top studio or worst studio, the NY team only cares about the NY studios.
    - Managers scramble to get parts and most of the time, need to reuse parts to salvage a bike.
    - There is never positive re-enforcement nor motivation from your direct supervisor.
    - Long work weeks. Putting in 70-80hrs/week on top of bringing work home.
    - You put your all into the studio, running around after hours, putting in 16hr days, with nothing in return.

    Advice to Management

    - Make sure when hiring, hiring those relevant to specific fields. Hiring someone who has worked in restaurants does not translate well for someone leading a large territory for a fitness company.
    - Re-assess your VPs and their ability to lead.
    - Hire more corporate help.

    Pros

    - Spent years working way up through the company and achieving highest possible role. Good benefits, OK salary and great work environment.

    Cons

    - Work-life balance is very poor. Ability to pull up work from any location, always working and always expected to be working
    - Upper management has massive lack of communication to studio managers
    - Poor leadership and lack of accountability.
    - Lack of positive reinforcement; communication from boss only comes through if you are not doing well. Never the opposite. This makes staying with company less desirable.
    - Never given any goals or numbers to achieve. Makes it hard to guide yourself and know whether on correct path or not.
    - Hear from boss when out of town, rarely any other time. Expectations are definitely not communicated well.
    - Flywheel will consume you if you allow it. Individuals who do not do well in setting and managing boundaries experience burn out, and there won't be many people (if anyone) to stop this from happening.
    - Poured heart and soul in to company for years receive nothing in return.

    Advice to Management

    - Understand what it truly means to take time off and why employees feel the need to do so.
    - Leadership should be aware of their employees giving their best, even when they have achieved their goals and results numbers.
    - If Flywheel would put more money in to marketing and advertising before a studio opens - it would truly help improve overall studio performance. There's a constant "cannot keep above water" feeling.

    Pros

    the instructors put on a great class- if there is room, employees get to take class for free

    Cons

    Training is non-existent and studio managers are overworked. Resistance exercise portion of class a waste of time for muscle endurance or strength goals.

    Advice to Management

    compensation is fair, work expectations for local manager is not. Invest more in training before opening up a new studio.

    Pros

    An incredibly positive work environment, the job isn't difficult, well compensated, great network of employees. The corporate headquarters are responsive to any and all concerns

    Cons

    The hours are a little bit crazy, but that comes with any job in the fitness industry!

    Advice to Management

    Employee feedback forms/opportunities to talk about going further in the company would be appreciated
