    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, supportive team, offered future education and truly loved my job.

    Cons

    Laid off unexpectedly as they discontinued the myHealthCheck program. Didn't seem very planned out to transition clients or support existing coaching participants.
    Benefits start after 60-90 days and not many vacation days.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people there are great to work with although some let their title go to their head.

    Cons

    Was a great place to work for a number of years and then new IT leadership changed everything to a shared service kingdom when one person's vision was all that mattered.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a path and then stick to it through delivery. So many systems are a mess due to mid-lifecycle changes imposed from above with little real value.
