      Pros

      The company attracts good people so your team will always be a lot of fun. Hours aren't terrible and the work isn't hard.

      Cons

      The pay is substantially low and even upper management positions aren't compensated great.

      Great Company; Clueless Upper Management

      Nov 23, 2021 - Personal Trainer in Sandy Springs, Optional[GA]
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay and benefits are great.

      Cons

      Upper management is clueless to what's actually going on in the club, and makes policy changes based on what they THINK would work instead of actually being in the club to see what works.

      Great company, bad management

      Aug 31, 2021 - Finess Consultant/Personal Trainer/Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As personal trainer, anyone can make great income with time management, sales and client management skills. There are so many members to build your personal training business.

      Cons

      Too many turnovers at the upper management level, not enough vertical growth possibilities, rushed to fill the management positions with friends of other managers rather than finding the right candidate with proper vision for company's future growth in mind. Racism and discrimination were visible throughout the organization.

      Pros

      Coworkers and members were great! I enjoyed seeing the regulars at the gym, building relationships with the members and their children. Coming to work was really about the people.

      Cons

      The facilities need work. For a gym that charges as much as they do for their services there was always things broken or out of order. The upper management at the gym was questionable.

      Pros

      In the beginning of working there it was great, when i was able to do just my job.

      Cons

      The upper management is not helpful and doesn't care about their employees, didn't want to help when understaffed and was very rude.

      Very Corrupt

      May 4, 2021 - Analyst in Chanhassen, MN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The IT management chain is pretty good all the way up to the top. My team is really the only pro. There is a lot of opportunity to grow your knowledge quickly since there is always more that needs to be done than there are people to do it. If you do the right things, you can stretch across or upward pretty quickly compared to companies that have a sufficient number of employees to support the business.

      Cons

      This is the most corrupt company I've ever worked at. The entire HR structure was built to cover things, hire family members into who should be eligible for a job in HR (no experience, felons, spouse works as upper management in a department that would cause a conflict of interest, etc.). I know that everyone always says "I'm not sure what our VP of this department does," but actually, there are so many people in upper management who are just friends of Bahram or family members of people who are friends of Bahram and I've actually heard that they brag about not working and they get paid big money to do it. Also, family favorites were able to "work" fully remote in jobs where others were terminated if they asked to work remote because of a family move. As you can imagine, HR is one of the biggest areas for that. Also because there isn't an HR department to drive normal processes, there are no performance reviews, which is fine, except then you have no way to know why you did or did not get a certain amount of an annual increase vs. someone else who may be underperforming compared to you. Benefits For those looking to have a family, there is no paid parental leave. As a woman, you can sign up for short term disability 1 year before you plan to have a baby and you can be paid 60% of your regular earnings, but you have to pay for short term disability yourself. Men get nothing. For those of you looking for good benefits, the 401k match is discretionary only and is very, very small. It is around 2% if you contribute 6%, capping at a certain amount, so expect no more than $1000 match annually, if any. Bahram has actually said in an all company meeting before that he doesn't believe in giving things to people, even his own kids (mind you, he has multiple family members running departments at young ages), so I imagine he won't ever think it's very important to invest in this in the future. All company revenue is literally just dumped into the fast growth model of standing up 12+ clubs a year, selling those buildings to someone else, and then renting the space from whoever the buyer is. It's a "cool" growth model, but ultimately it just adds a lot of headcount to support and typically doesn't mean that any additional headcount will be added to support the club team members. Overall Do not expect bonuses, do not expect an HSA match, do not expect a 401k match. If your salary is not higher than industry standard, do not expect that the benefits will makeup for that. There's really no such thing as Total Compensation at Life Time. Your base pay is all there is to be offered and you will be working hard and fast to earn it.
