    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn business drivers for those new to a management role

    Highly stressful and very corporate. How one is treated is based on what you did today.
    Boys club mentality favors those who can fit in over those who are technically qualified.
    Very long hours, mediocre pay with a bonus structure that is virtually unattainable if a team needs to be rebuilt.

    Pros

    I was a GFI and absolutely loved teaching there. The members are serious, hard-working and for the most part, nice.

    They yanked our health insurance a couple of years ago and the pay is really bad.
