    I have been working at Wellbridge part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I teach for Wellbridge and have found the managers and staff to be supportive and encourage us to do out best. I have been paid better than the competitors and genuinely feel that management wants me to be successful at my job.

    Cons

    I would prefer to have our online pay system set up off-site for teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage team members to participate more fully in club activities.

    Former Employee - Marketing in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO
    Former Employee - Marketing in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO

    I worked at Wellbridge full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -free fitness club membership
    -decent insurance

    Cons

    -high turnover
    -despite the high turnover, there are a select few employees who have been there for ages but are entirely stuck in their ways and refuse to embrace change or new ideas
    -pay freezes
    - full of untalented, unmotivated people who find their way to work around the system and upper management tends to ignore this problem
    -very little communication and guidance from upper management
    -most toxic and negative environment in which I've ever worked; very gossipy and cliquey culture
    -communication between people/departments can be very secretive and competitive
    -not a lot of concrete policies in place or if there are, then there isn't much agreement on what they are
    -have to work holidays; little time off
    -fitness/wellness company that allows employees to smoke a few feet outside of the building (smoke smell is constant)
    -extremely micro-management and inexperienced upper and mid- management, especially marketing department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Stop hiring people with little or no experience (i.e. without relevant education or hiring people just because they are a friend)... they just end up failing and making awful managers
    -Stop micromanaging
    -Give people well-deserved raises
    -HR needs to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT when people express their genuine concerns/complaints

    Absolutely no good reason to work here unless you do not mind working in an extremely toxic environment surrounded by a bunch of untalented, gossipy people who have no real no motivation.

    This company does not care about the person, only about numbers.

    I have been working at Wellbridge full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only thing I can say is that you get a free membership.

    Cons

    All I have to say is stay away from this company. They micro manage, promise money that never comes through. Do NOT work for this company!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It does NOT do any good to give any advice. They are horrible! I would NEVER recommend this company to my worst enemy!

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere with great co-workers. Management doesn't over pressure you. This is not a burn and turn environment which I had in the past

    Cons

    Seems to be a little behind in cutting edge and industry trends. Pay is well below average for the industry

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with were great. Other then that, I really can not think of any other pros.

    Cons

    So poorly managed, I couldn't stand it. Employees don't really matter. Management will cheat workers if they can get away with it. 30 cent raise over 4 years! The extremely high turnover rate says it all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and retain is better for business then recruit and train.

    Fun environment, loved my members & staff

    Cons

    No positive reinforcement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Ed Williams & Michael Meehan.... Find out what's really going on at your clubs. Read & really listen to member surveys. They were all true

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. The manager will often give you a straight forward answer.

    Cons

    Management only cares about make numbers and money. From top to bottom this company has put an elevator in an outhouse.
