What is paid time off like at Life Time?

Pros

I love the environment and my coworkers. The overall company vision is great.

Cons

As a manager it is draining to be expected to work a minimum of 45 hours and is usually closer to 60, and being told to work 6 days per week. Very little PTO for al levels of management, told you cannot take your weekend days next to your pto days.

Advice to Management

Always expecting more from what’s expected is unrealistic.

Does Life Time offer massages?

Pros

40% off retail brands and opportunities to use “employee order forms” from skincare vendors. Basically free services (hair nails massage skincare) just tip the technicians and pay shop fee ($5-$75). Free gym membership. If you know the other department managers well or other service providing team members they’re usually pretty friendly and can give you free services. Cafe discount.

Cons

I spend too much money there. Lol

Does Life Time offer family leave?

Pros

The IT management chain is pretty good all the way up to the top. My team is really the only pro. There is a lot of opportunity to grow your knowledge quickly since there is always more that needs to be done than there are people to do it. If you do the right things, you can stretch across or upward pretty quickly compared to companies that have a sufficient number of employees to support the business.

Cons

This is the most corrupt company I've ever worked at. The entire HR structure was built to cover things, hire family members into who should be eligible for a job in HR (no experience, felons, spouse works as upper management in a department that would cause a conflict of interest, etc.). I know that everyone always says "I'm not sure what our VP of this department does," but actually, there are so many people in upper management who are just friends of Bahram or family members of people who are friends of Bahram and I've actually heard that they brag about not working and they get paid big money to do it. Also, family favorites were able to "work" fully remote in jobs where others were terminated if they asked to work remote because of a family move. As you can imagine, HR is one of the biggest areas for that. Also because there isn't an HR department to drive normal processes, there are no performance reviews, which is fine, except then you have no way to know why you did or did not get a certain amount of an annual increase vs. someone else who may be underperforming compared to you. Benefits For those looking to have a family, there is no paid parental leave. As a woman, you can sign up for short term disability 1 year before you plan to have a baby and you can be paid 60% of your regular earnings, but you have to pay for short term disability yourself. Men get nothing. For those of you looking for good benefits, the 401k match is discretionary only and is very, very small. It is around 2% if you contribute 6%, capping at a certain amount, so expect no more than $1000 match annually, if any. Bahram has actually said in an all company meeting before that he doesn't believe in giving things to people, even his own kids (mind you, he has multiple family members running departments at young ages), so I imagine he won't ever think it's very important to invest in this in the future. All company revenue is literally just dumped into the fast growth model of standing up 12+ clubs a year, selling those buildings to someone else, and then renting the space from whoever the buyer is. It's a "cool" growth model, but ultimately it just adds a lot of headcount to support and typically doesn't mean that any additional headcount will be added to support the club team members. Overall Do not expect bonuses, do not expect an HSA match, do not expect a 401k match. If your salary is not higher than industry standard, do not expect that the benefits will makeup for that. There's really no such thing as Total Compensation at Life Time. Your base pay is all there is to be offered and you will be working hard and fast to earn it.

For those looking to have a family, there is no paid parental leave.
