    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s great to work for a company that actually cares to help people. At first you think it’s a front, that “changing lives” when you help someone join is a weird way to phrase it. But its a relatively pure motive, coming from people who have experienced their own lives being changed. So many opportunities to grow. Life Time is booming.

    Cons

    The culture is a little cut throat but Sales is Sales and it’s always going to be that way. I spend a lot of time there there and though I love to be in the club, 60-70 hours a week is certainly a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on your employees’ happiness a little more intentionally. A lot of thank yous are said but that only goes so far.
