    Pros

    Great people on the ground and some amazing leaders at Head Office in Kings Cross ( Present COO & Inspiring CEO) Modern offices which are nicely stocked with breakfast etc for employees Amazing growth story Free gym membership for you and a friend/partner

    Cons

    Toxic and unprofessional environment especially in the HR team which has almost 50% turnover. Leadership team are too close (board meetings openly held at the CEO's house, working sessions at one anothers homes) which makes it hard for staff to whistle blow on unfair behavior for fear of losing their jobs.

    Pros

    Work when you want to

    Cons

    Company isn’t in any rush to sort out wages if they are wrong, but still want you to pay the full rent on time even if they are the ones who owe you money so it’ll come out your pocket until they get round to paying you correctly.

    Pros

    You get to meet some great down to earth members with interesting stories to their fitness journeys. Classes were fun to participate in!

    Cons

    The hours are very unsociable, you are constantly cleaning, you have to work 2 weekends a month, there is hardly any cover for when someone goes on holiday so sometimes you may have to take their classes as well.

    I worked at Pure Gym part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The free gym membership for you and a friend.

    Cons

    Many of the management/team leaders don’t make you feel welcomed. Most of them wouldn’t greet you when you arrive, no hello, good morning or anything. As there’s no interaction with most of them you tend to feel isolated a lot of the time. Also, many team leaders are very rude and speak to you disrespectfully, but in return expect you to respect them. As well as, it seemed like the roles of many of the management and team leaders got to their heads, because many times they would try to treat and speak to you like you were lower than them.
