    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Great family environment; life long relationships are built; able to "wear many hats" - no day is boring.

    Cons

    I was a Manager over a department for years. Upper level leadership is beyond the level of politics I typically see in companies. The pay does not come to equate to the time and energy you put in. If you work at a slower club and have at least one honest and competent leader, it is tolerable. Unfortunately even if you find yourself in that situation, it won't last.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Free Membership - even though you still have to pay for any fun classes on top of your normal membership.

    Cons

    Life Time is unorganized, lacking direction, talent, and the wherewithal to even begin to understand what they are doing wrong. If they keep things up the way they are now they will go down in flames. The only reason they are still churning as a business is because they pay their employees no money to do 30 jobs at once - and that's at the corporate level, so I can't imagine what it looks like at the club level.

    Advice to Management

    Change something, anything. Start treating your employees with respect. Start acting like a health and wellness company. Care more about your brand and less about simply making money. Be human.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free membership. Nice facility when first opened. Newest equipment and technology.

    Cons

    Staff always calls out or quits. Management doesn’t care. Facility looks beat up after a few months. Members and their kids are allowed to pretty much tear up the place and nothing is done.

    Advice to Management

    Speak up to the members. You have more than enough so who cares if someone cancels because you made their kids stop damaging property or act like normal human being.
