    I worked at Holmes Place full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is alright as you are in a fitness environment where people are active and full of energy. You also get to meet many people of different backgrounds and this allows you to expand your network.

    Cons

    The company keeps telling you about values they don't pursue themselves. They say they promote from within but often make poor choices. The company also does not see business in long term as it should. The group only has a reactive approach to any challenges and has not been able to tackle the problem of growing competition of low cost gyms around them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop assuming that people will keep coming to join clubs that are not better than others that offer similar services for less than half the price. Invest in a new image and create value for members. Try to give the business development of the group a proactive approach instead of just reacting when things are going completely down south.

    Current Employee - European Recruitment and Loyalty Manager in Barcelona (Spain)

    I have been working at Holmes Place (Less than a year)

    Pros

    So far so good, I had four interviews in order to get the role, and altough they were lengtly and tough, it showed me how professional the company was and also how the company are really looking for the right people for each role.
    Although I have only been at Holmes Place for a short time, one of the main things that has been very apparent to me is the progression of staff, they have amazing internal programs in order to retain staff and promote within.
    Everyone that works here is motivated about health and fitness and its a great environment to work in.

    Cons

    At this stage I have no negative comments to make.
