      Pros

      You will learn how to strategize and hit revenue targets. You will grow as a leader and learn how to manage a diverse group of people. Equinox has created some of the best reporting and processes in the fitness industry. The company is always ensuring they are growing, developing, and offering the best their is for fitness offerings and the latest technologies. If you are competitive and like working in a team environment you will enjoy the job. Great resume builder. Your customer service skills, ability to multi-task, and people development skills will improve Overall, can be a very fun place to work. You will run into some of the strongest leaders you have ever worked with- along with some of the worst ;)

      Cons

      Little to no work-life balance. Politics that are unnecessary for a health-related industry. Ensure you know the club you are taking on and its financial history and struggles- due to foot traffic some clubs are easier to hit revenue targets. Sales-driven culture- not for everyone. Inappropriate dialogue and relationships between management and staff. You have to be strategic and on who you are aligned with, as your connections within the company are sometimes more powerful than your performance. If clubs are not hitting targets the "blame game" will begin, you will need to know how to protect yourself while still motivating a large team and earning their trust.
