    Pros

    Good people, laid back work environment, lots of growth in the industry the last several years, great job security, ideal job for independent people.

    Cons

    More about business growth then quality of their product, no continuing ed for staff, poor senior management, sub-par pay per industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    If you spent as much time taking care of your people as you did business needs this would be a really great company to work for. Your people are the product.

    Pros

    Fun coworkers. Flexible schedule. Fun office. Lots of office activity’s.

    Cons

    Very low pay. No one listens to you or cares what you have to say. Poor leadership. No growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Please please please liston to your employees. All the management does is hire Yes men and woman. There are a lot of very big flaws in the company that our team has been pointing out for the last year but no one will fix them until something falls apart. A very reactive company and not proactive. Pay is very low and they do not give raises. Staff is a revolving door because the good employees go to another company.

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

    Pros

    Depends on the client you work for. The client I worked with for four years was great!

    Cons

    HFit will throw you under the bus if needed. Anything for the client. In the four years I worked there, 25 people went through 9 total positions. Very high turnover! When management failed to get our contract renewed, HFit did a terrible job of trying to find other jobs for us within the company. There were 9 of us who needed jobs and only 3 were placed. They didn't seem to care or apologize for their failures with this client. So now I work for one of their competitors. And if you work for a high profile client and are good at your job, your advancement opportunities are extremely limited because they don't want to upset the client by having you leave the position.
