    Pros

    Competitive pay and comp structure. Met a lot of great people and built some great lasting professional contacts. This is based off of employment in the late 90's.

    Cons

    I do Not really have anything negative to report. I learned a great deal about sales, and how to work on a structured compensation plan. The hourly pay could have been slightly higher, however I don't thing it's worth complaining about.

    Pros

    Gym membership, amazing base ground to build book of clients for an independent personal trainer. Great facilities, amenities and locations , locations, locations.

    Cons

    Not enough financial incentive for employees. Aggressive sales goal target. In this industry not everyone is keen on working out or opting for gym membership.

    Advice to Management

    Change the approach towards acquiring new clients. Instead of having an aggressive Sales team try promoting Aggressive Healthy culture.

    Pros

    Free Membership. Colleagues where kool

    Cons

    This has to be one of the worst run company I ever worked for. Starting from there HR Dept on down.. Everyone on Corp Level are all living back in 1974

    Advice to Management

    Sell this Company and let New Competent People Run it. Your HR Dept is a joke..If you get on there bad side.. Your NYSC career is over!!!

    Pros

    Having a flexible schedule is great because it allows you free time and flexibility. You aren't necessarily set with the 9-5.

    Cons

    As a Membership Consultant you have to work the last day of each month and three of the last four days of each month
