    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have met a lot of great people working at Equinox and really enjoy living the Equinox Lifestyle. The culture is work hard and play hard. If you want to work for the industry leader, then Equinox should be your choice.

    Cons

    In People Services there is not a lot of education and development. Comp is lower then most other companies

    Advice to Management

    Provide more development to your PS team. The field teams have so much development opportunity, yet lacks at the corporate level.
