    Pros

    Through the Brunswick Corporation Cybex Int. is vastly growing so there is great opportunity here to be a part of the growth. Most of the co-workers here are easy going people, who just want to help you in your work, and to make sure Cybex is successful. They are people who want things done right the first time and that has made the manufacturing go smooth. Definitely knowledgeable people here that can answer your questions, or know the right person to ask. Management is top notch, and don't try to get in the way of your ability to finish day to day task.

    Cons

    Of course there is growing pains in adding the new addition to the building, along with now be part of life fitness and their products. There is not always clear on the entire direction from day to day, but there is a clear direction of the outcome.

    Pros

    Not a whole lot.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Terrible training ever since the buy out cutting hours and layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers. They don't care about their employees. Only about themselves

    Pros

    Now part of Brunswick Corporation and Life Fitness, you are part of the largest fitness equipment manufacturer in the world. That holds some street cred and could provide for a nice stepping stone.

    Cons

    After the acquisition in Jan 2016 and the announcement that the Medway facility would be closing, all that made Cybex one a phenomenal company is gone- the people. Post-acquisition, Cybex employees either left on their own accord, were laid off, or will soon be out of a job because of the Medway plant closing. Out of 150 people in the Medway facility, 120 were offered positions with Life Fitness. Of those 120, 16 took the new positions. Of the 16, 4 needed to relocate (others were remote employees and did not have to change their lives). What made Cybex great, the people, are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Decisions were already made. The Cybex brand will be rolled into the LF family which no longer necessitates the people who made Cybex, Cybex

    Great people who really care about the product and team members. A very supportive group of employees who were there to always do what was best for the business.

    Cons

    Being by Brunswick added disarray and lack of support to the company's structure.

    Advice to Management

    Support Cybex and the great brand that was built.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Plenty of freedom to make decisions. Very open to working remotely.

    Cons

    Bought by Brunswick Corp in January 2016 and everything changed. The Medway facility is like a ghost town and will be closed in the next 18 months. Majority of management that made it great have all been laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Too late. The Cybex Brand will slowly disappear. Should have kept it as a stand alone business.
