    Pros

    Talented people, respectable workplace, strong brand.

    Merger with A&E Television Networks as of September 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, the Lifetime management team is pretty much gone since the merger with A&E Television Networks.

    Pros

    The networking opportunities are always available; flexible schedules; your results are what you put in.

    Cons

    Requires almost if not all of your weekends and special holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Management is flexible if you can deliver what you promise. No micro-management.

    Pros

    Working at Lifetime provided me with a great opportunity to meet and learn from established broadcast professionals in the industry. The work environment, while very professional, was laid back and employees were extremely friendly. As an intern and eventual entry-level employee, I was given an opportunity to sit in with other departments of interest and build lasting relationships with other co-workers; which ultimately led to secondary employment following the end of my contract.

    Cons

    Some on-the-job training practices were very vague.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Great fun learning environment with great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Houston GMs and DMs not on same page and create too much tension and lower team morale. Personal Training Leadership were wonderful and why I stayed with company for as long as I did.

    Advice to Management

    GM's need better training and need to be better leaders. Do not hire someone because they can sell, that should just be one of the qualities, they should be able to lead and motivate.

    I worked at Lifetime part-time

    Pros

    Very easy job and great communication. Great job specific training. Management is friendly and co-workers are wonderful for the most part!

    Cons

    Continual mandatory online training that can be boring and common sense.

    Advice to Management

    While looking professional and giving the impression of an elite facility, It is a fitness facility and Blazers for the member services are a bit over the top. I would suggest a more flexible uniform such as wearing black and white professional attire.

    Get better at bringing up the trainers at the bottom
