      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at IMG Academy full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The gym was good and there are certainly great people here. Leadership is scary and unless your in with them your options are limited.

      Cons

      Terrible leadership that over spent and didn’t listen to the troops. When 10 out of 12 team members in marketing leave over a one year period, there might be a problem?

      Advice to Management

      To HR - Exit interviews help if you want to hear the common denominator for the consistent max exists.

      I worked at IMG Academy full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Gifted athletes, odd hours that some like, IMG swag, benefits

      Cons

      Odd hours that some hate, incredible turnover, devolution of standards and rude parents "I didn't pay all this money for a B," pressure to pass athletes who have been accepted to D1 schools even when they are barely literate and don't turn in any work, constant student absences for sports travel, academics bow to the god of sports and teachers are the bottom of the totem pole, very image-focused

      Advice to Management

      It's a school. Try to remember that.

        I worked at IMG Academy full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Staff was amazing to work with. You also have a chance to assist some of the greatest athletes in the world from children into adulthood.

        Cons

        It is a business and don't forget it. It is a corporate run, cold and heartless run operation.
