    Pros

    I love my job, I enjoy helping people meet their goals. The food is very good and the program works.

    Cons

    My center has been short staffed for a long time, no help from upper management whatsoever. Unable to take breaks often!!!! Everyday we have higher goals to reach, more work and less help. Cleaning crew only goes 1X a week now, instead of 3. Company expects employees to do local marketing...with what time? Isn't that why they have a marketing department? Why do we have to do everything????

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and do your job. Stop demanding so much with the inadequate number of staff in a busy center.

    Pros

    Helping people to accomplish their goals. Potential for fine tuning consultation skills. The relationships you build with co workers and clients.

    Cons

    Very simply, Jenny Craig's reviews being lower than Walmart should say it all. One of the company's values is Integrity, "Do the right thing even when no one is watching." Word of warning to current employees and those thinking of employment with Jenny Craig: management's definition of integrity is filtered through bottom line profit or in Jenny lingo "numbers". Only when numbers are effected will management step in and possibly do right by the employee. If employed you can expect a high level of frustration with no hope of pay raises, no hope of decent advancement opportunities and be made to feel unappreciated in that managements words do not match their actions.

    Advice to Management

    What integrity really means as defined by Oxford dictionary- The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles: moral uprightness. It is not an overly complicated concept, do right by your employees and they will do right by the clients. Work on making employees content and the company will attract more quality employees. As it stands right now Jenny will attract employees less qualified then what Walmart attracts.

    Pros

    I think the main reason I stay with Jenny Craig is because I am impacting people's lives... mostly women which really makes me feel good. A lot has changed in the last year. Our Jenny Craig Consultant pay changed to get rid of commissions. Its better because we can actually work as team. We aren't getting mad at each other for taking clients. The top management changed and you can start to tell. The guy actually is out there asking for our opinion which is a nice change

    Cons

    have to work weekends/evenings and its unlikely you will get two days off in a row. I am lucky because our team is awesome about helping each other out but I know its not like that everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    more marketing to support sales in the center.

    Pros

    Close early on Fridays and benefits

    Cons

    Upper management- constantly finding new reasons to threaten us with documentation and are a bunch of stepford wives. Very amusing to watch them in action when the VP comes around. Employees- high turnover continues but even harder to even hire a decent person thanks to the new employment agency that is worthless. Marketing- it's not really working, employees just saying it is to keep management off our back about doing it 10 hours a week. Pay- it's really just insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so naive to believe that these new ideas you are implementing actually work. The jc puppets are just playing the game.

    Pros

    Helping people lose weight and learn how to eat and live better! Satisfaction of seeing successes. Employees get 50% off food purchases.

    Cons

    Lack of gender diversity. Lack of advertising (for every 1 Jenny Craig TV commercial, you see 50 NutriSystem and Weight Watchers). Need to have food in stock. Need to have more rotation of new menu items to keep clients motivated to keep coming back. Expensive

    Advice to Management

    Do you really think employee morale will improve just because you give us a raise so we are making more than minimum wage, then cut the office cleaners to once a week so we have to take out trash, cardboard boxes, clean bathrooms?
