    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been at HealthFitness for more than 9 years and counting. As with any company and position there are challenging days but I have a great deal of respect for my direct manager and the people I work with everyday. The associates are passionate about doing their best every day to exceed expectations.

    I have proved myself and the quality of my work through the years and been acknowledged through promotions and significant merit increases. I also enjoy a great deal of flexibility to work from home and flex my hours to accommodate life with two small children.

    Cons

    The company has grown rapidly in the 9 years I have been there and as a result have experienced some growing pains. Management is aware of the pains and over the last year has taken a lot of steps to address and fix the problems. As a result, I am optimistic about another great 9+ years with HealthFitness.

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

    Pros

    The aquatic staff is great and the facility is fantastic. The members/students/alumni are really interesting!

    Cons

    There are limited professional development opportunities, so you need to create your own. The pay is not enough for the experience level and the amount of work that is completed.

    Advice to Management

    Have a professional development plan in place for each full time staff. And re-visit the Health Fitness contract, the staff really don't get paid enough to keep up with the cost of living in Boston.

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

    Pros

    Depending on the contract between HealthFitness and business but, I loved how collaborative my HealthFitness team was with a Health Insurance company's Wellness Department. If my husband didn't relocate to a different city I would have never left this company. HealthFitness hires great people and pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    Hard to progress your career in the company on the Fitness Management side. they do online trainings but, not to many one-one training opportunities to learn how to progress. Also, since they contract with businesses there might come a time when the business doesn't renew their original contract and go with a cheaper company. HealthFitness will do their best to find you a new job but that doesn't always work out.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more corporate one on one training sessions to all employees who want to progress and grow with the company. Also, provide more ways for different sites to interact with each other more often in person.

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Rewarding work, they pay for professional development which is huge. Good benefits, provide 401k match although it could be better. Not a whole lot of direct oversight at the site level.

    Cons

    Low pay. Feel that you are mostly forgotten about by corporate while working at your site. Website and backend is very dated although word is it will EVENTUALLY be revamped. Expected to offer intensive programs that make the company more money but provide little to no compensation.

    I worked at Health Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Ability to be creative at select accounts; great opportunity for growth with Welltok partnership and platform developments being released later in 2017. Also great growth opportunities with mid-size business market penetration and new products in 2017.

    Cons

    Organization grew quickly from 2012 - 2015 and promised a new health management platform to many key clients. While Trustmark (parent company) funded technological developments over the past several years and many resources were provided towards this effort, it was not enough to deliver what the customer wanted, resulting in attrition and company downsizing. Pay is low in corporate roles when compared to competitors and similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    Increase recognition for the hard work that various divisions and contributors put forth in account wins and renewals with internal communications and "attaboys." Increase/leverage small wins/product development steps obtained, etc.towards overall outcome to reduce associate frustration in understanding the bigger picture and feeling they are all part of one team.
