    Pros

    The work environment is amazing. The new senior management team is leading the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Your always working, even when you are off. Sometimes it feels lie certain things take forever to get completed while others are immediate. Overall there isn't too much to be upset about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the current trend. A lot of changes are happening and I believe them all to be for the better. I am a HUGE supporter of Tim K, Alex A, & Marty A.

    Pros

    Full-time instructors receive full benefits.

    Cons

    The facilities are no-frills and although there is paid vacation, it's only 5 days.

    Raises aren't given in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    The group exercise department was better managed with the system in place when A. Donelly was in charge of it.

    Pros

    Plug and play system for a easy success track.

    Cons

    The inability of the sales team to build value around the multiple aspects of training offered at TSI that beats out their competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the focus on personal training and leverage the market. TSI has a solid foundation in regards to systems but the first point of contact is not versed enough to demonstrate the true value of training so that the prospect buys on that value first and then the club.

    Pros

    TSI pays very well for group exercise, and you will have many opportunities to sub for classes.

    The manger is nice but is spread too thin; they are in charge of 5 to 10 clubs.

    Advice to Management

    Give the managers the option to have a club liaison to help address member and instructor isssues. Change the requirements to get raises, 5 classes a week is not attainable for most instructors.
