    Pros

    You can speak freely about how bad the company treats its employees without them knowing you are telling the truth about the company.

    Cons

    There are too many to list

    They need to stop allowing anonymous reviews made by managers which are fake.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be removed with people persons, and leaders that can change the system rather than enforce a broken one

    Pros

    If you work for the FitCorp Division at a non-commercial club, then it's not a bad gig, assuming you like the culture of the company who has hired TSI/FitCorp.

    Cons

    The benefits are terrible. They contribute next to nothing for 401K, the healthcare plan is a joke ($70 copay for office visits), and if you need FMLA (maternity leave or medical issue), you must use your vacation time and then take the rest completely unpaid. Pay rates are below market value and it is clear that this company expects a high turnover rate as they clearly don't take care of their employees. The company now leaves most decisions up to the legal department, even though that department doesn't understand fitness, and the whole purpose of why we do what we do. Whenever you operate out of fear, everyone suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as though you value them and want them to stick around for the long-haul. Make pay rates fair and equitable (competitive would be nice). Invest in better benefits so your employees can afford to continue working for you. Invest in a short-term disability plan that actually helps your employees heal, rather than worrying that they'll be homeless afterward.
