    Pros

    Life Time has changed my life for more than what meets the eyes. If you have the stamina and mental strength that will turn how you lead a team upside down, then you’ll find immense fulfillment here. I always saw myself as a solid leader - not quite. But that was then and then and this is now - what a gift I have been offered to be more and do more than I thought possible.

    Cons

    None from me. Emotionally weak and drama magnets please stay away. There are always those folks who know it all.

    Advice to Management

    Department Managers should be your first go to. Careful not to undermine the leaders who are your 100% in team.
