    Pros

    Phenomenal people to work with and a product that really does some good. I am in product development, so some of the things I read hear seem odd. Is the product perfect? No, it's only 99+% accurate, and getting better all the time. It is more than good enough to convince our users to lose weight, stop smoking, start exercising etc, and as a result save our clients a lot of money. And that is a tribute to the product and the people who support it. I have personally seen a number of instances of people being promoted to better playing jobs and/or jobs with more responsibility. I have seen people laid off when things were tight, only to be rehired when things improved. I have seen people leave and come back. This is a place people like to work.

    Cons

    This is a fast growing business. The work can be long, hard, and sometimes pressure packed. I have seen some talented people burn out. It is not a punch-the-time-clock collect-a-paycheck type business. So if you want something slow-paced or low pressure, this might not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    This is one of the better managed companies I have worked for. We are in a high grow subsidiary of a solid insurance company. That probably cause strains but they don't seem to filter down to my level, so keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Wonderful training, responsive management team, responsive support from several departments, pretty flexible work schedule

    Cons

    There is a super quick learning curve, but I don't know that that's exactly a con, just a challenge to overcome. Also, I think it's not really a con either, but perhaps gym membership subsidy? I mean we are a Health and Fitness company, so we compensated with assistance and encouragement to do that. It's a pretty standard benefit these days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Continue with the great communication long after the employee is hired and encourage professional growth.

    Pros

    The people, their passion, leadership, and the ability to make a difference are the highlights of the company. It's not a company that's plagued by politics; rather, it's an organization of hard working, caring, bright, dedicated people.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is workload. The organization runs lean, so it takes discipline, time management skills and the ability to prioritize to stay focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're on the right path, in my humble opinion, and I am excited about the future of HealthFitness. Leadership is comprised of some of the most genuine and talented people I have had the privilege to work for.

    The pay is good which includes up to $24 per hour, depending on your education/experience; and mileage reimbursement. You get to choose your own schedule with plenty events to keep you busy. Also, the coworkers are professional, friendly, and helpful.

    Cons

    As a full time manager, it is hard to balance your personal life and work with all the traveling you must do.

    They are doing a great job.
