    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free membership. Very "healthy" environment to work in- culture that is encouraging of healthy eating, exercise, etc. Related to that though- You will be in the (silently judged) minority of your're out of shape, overweight, drink soda, etc.

    Mostly business casual dress code.

    Certain positions also allotted cell phone and home internet connectivity allowance in addition to base salary, usually had access to great cutting edge technology, very satisfied with salary.

    Cons

    Only 10 days of PTO a year (whether it's sick or vacation), that you must use by the end of the calendar year. This does not allow for much work/life balance.

    Benefits were just OK, which is a little odd considering it's a "Healthy Way of Life Company"

    CEO has a temper- which I witnessed firsthand, not just going off of rumors. He is very driven, and perhaps that is the type of personality needed to be "successful" but cursing and losing your temper with employees or situations usually doesn't go over well in the long run.

    His team of upper management is comprised of guys that have been by his side nodding yes since the first club was opened. For the most part, it's not horrible, but you eventually get the feeling that you either 'drink the kool aid' or you don't, and if you don't you're out.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful facility. Clean environment...DH's do an incredible job.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to give up their entire lives to work at Life Time. There is no work/life balance and managers are treated poorly. They are expected to be on call 24/7 and give up everything else if called. I was called back in from out of town once when there was dust and dead bugs in the corner of my area. I would not advise anyone to work in management at LTF.

    Advice to Management

    Walk a day in your Department Heads shoes. When someone gives you their all, make sure you are giving something back to them.
