    I have been working at Medifast full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous PTO, great work/life balance. Working from home/remotely is acceptable occasionally as long as it's not taken advantage of. FREE personal training and gym membership! The company has a "family feel" as it is a family owned business. Management is approachable and open to new ideas. There are opportunities for advancement within the company and the salary is competitive. Opportunities to join committees and be involved in other areas of interest (health & wellness, events, community service, safety).

    Cons

    Some positions can be too niche.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Be open to what staff communicates to you. The employee engagement surveys say a lot so take the necessary steps to make those improvements.

    I have been working at Medifast full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. We have a nice work life balance. If you are getting your work done, leadership is understanding that there are responsibilities outside of the office that require attention as well. Internal training opportunities and benefits are strong. Having free Medifast food product and gym membership is a great addition to the benfits package.
    Experience working in a fast paced environment where you are able to get your hands on a lot of different projects and build a diversified skill set.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change over the years, but it is a mid sized company so to be expected at some level.

    I worked at Medifast part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -great coworkers
    -fair pay
    -treated well
    -offers severance pay

    Cons

    Mostly female work environment, however, since I was laid off I have heard the dynamics of the company have completely changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was starting my way from the bottom hoping to get to the top after graduating, because Medifast changed all their management I was laid off. Even all the VPs knew who I was and would say hello to me rather than just walk by me like I didn't exist. I suggest all upper management try to restore the corporate Medifast to the great environment it used to be.
