    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    An Innovative, experience driven, high performance company. Equinox invests in it's employees, they consistently drive training and education, support growth from within and create a high energy culture that is addicting and almost impossible to leave. I'm grateful for the time spent in this company and still use the core principles and values they taught everyday.

    Cons

    Not a company for someone who has trouble taking feedback, you will need thick skin.

    This is a highly detailed, experience driven company. If you are not willing to put as much effort into your personal presentation as you are your work then do not apply. While this company will always support your growth with training and education, your personal presentation will be a factor just as much as your performance. I personally didn't mind dressing the part, but I watched it determine the fate of others.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to curb the gossip. Knowledge of company moves and decisions spread like wildfire and most of the time through senior management.

    The delivery difference between senior managers was not consistent. Some directors made you want to work for them because they always worked for you. Others ruled with iron fists and made you want to run in the opposite direction.

    The process improvement, performance management, education, training and incentives were challenging and motivating. The people are just as unique and state of the art as the clubs. The culture was addicting and competitive. Overall, it was always a positive and high energy environment to work in.

    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sexy, fun environment with a great clientele and a commitment to truly be the best in the business

    Cons

    Poor work life balance especially at the end of the month when many employees are required to work 3-4 12+hour days. Compensation isn't always in line with amount of work and effort provided by employees. Not bad, but maybe not always as good as it should be for hours worked.

    Advice to Management

    Need to continue to find a way to prevent turn over in employee base, specifically in personal training staff and sales team and in club personal. Corporate retention is much stronger. There's a reason for that.
