    Pros

    Great place to work, grow and develop leadership skills. Pleanty of amazing opportunities for growth and development. You are not micromanaged unless your numbers start to decline.

    Salary; work/life balance. I feel we lack recourses in order to make our clubs as successful: Our salaries are significantly lower than our competitors which makes it difficult to maintain motivation.

    I have been working at Town Sports International Holdings part-time

    Pros

    The reason I continue to work at Boston Sports Clubs is because of the team environment you're brought into when you work for the company. The members are the best part. Our team members are always welcoming and nice.

    Cons

    They pay isn't that great and if you need a day or two off and tell management weeks to months in advance you still have to get coverage. Management tries to act like they're kings and queens, but the heart of the company resides in the clean team, babysitters, trainers and welcome team. In working at BSC I have made great relationships with some really awesome people. If I were to leave it would be due to the management talking down to me one too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Be happy and appreciative when you have people who work as hard as they do.
