    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.

  3. A very rewarding experience. Requires a lot of patience, style flexing and urgency to constantly thrive for more success

    Pros

    Helping people change their lives is very rewarding.

    Cons

    No consistency,work long hrs as Center Director w no break, low pay, new structure worse for pay, not enough support for finding quality staff, not enough ads, pay based off of how well company doing, upper mngmnt living in la la land. Spend more $ on new menus/tools than keeping quality employees, it's a food based program so get a focus on new food more often, that's all the client wants!

    Advice to Management

    Wise up, roleplaying is good for training, but not real life situations. Try working as a Jcc more often, "go back to the basics" & see what you can really do & "lead by example". Sit in their chairs for awhile instead of going in 1x a month/quarter to critique.

  8. People oriented environment; working with the clients is very rewarding.

    Pros

    Training programs are excellent. I thought the sales / program director training in particular was very valuable. I continue to use these skills in my current work environment. I was able to fast track from counselor to program director to center director in less than one year. The salary was average; benefits were above average. Promotions were creative and fun.

    Cons

    As a center director, having to cover for counselors or program director due to illness or other unscheduled absences, was sometimes a challenge, particularly in the larger, busier centers.

    Advice to Management

    The regional management team during my tenure were excellent. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The interaction with the clients as they get excited with their weight loss success.

    Cons

    Having enough time to spend with each client, without rushing to get to the next scheduled appointment.

    Advice to Management

    More compensation on the food sales, since it is so vital to their success that they eat our products & not cook on their own.

    Pros

    Passionate about my career.
    It is powerful to work in a female dominated career path.
    I value the experience of working at Jenny.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a challenge.

    Honor the employees in the field. Our whole business is a direct reflection of our consultants and they do not feel that.
