    Pros

    Great discounts and wonderful membership.

    Cons

    High expectations and tight timelines. Just like every where. So you need to manage it by managing your business and provide detailed plans.

    Pros

    No company in the industry does what we do. The vision of the company is way ahead of others. Ltf promotes from within.

    Cons

    If you are full time sales or general manager work life balance is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Even though our founder preaches work life balance the people in areas of the business still threaten team members and make them feel guilty about taking days off and always staying well after shift.

    Pros

    I really loved working at the Burr Ridge location as a Kids Activities Team Member and Summer Camp Counselor. The club has great amenities and wonderful community. Everyone who works there strives for excellence.

    Cons

    Sometimes work got a little competitive or intense. Whenever someone from the corporate office would come to evaluate us, we had to be on our A game no matter what.

  8. I love the atmosphere. It feels like more than just a gym.
