    Pros

    1. Value your Talents- I feel that I am valued as an individual and that I am truly appreciated for what I offer the company.
    2. Offer Health & Wellness Benefits- They provide excellent health insurance as well as many other uniquie health incentives like free gym membership, free medifast food and an employee assistance program.
    3. Growth- A lot of opportunity to grow with the company and we are growing really fast! A lot of exciting and new challenges everyday.
    4. A fun and relaxed environment where everyone is really appreciative and respectful of each other.
    5. Community outreach and involvment in local Charities

    Cons

    I can't speak for others but I really have nothing negative to say. My team is amazing so I have had a really positive experience since day 1. Every company has its challenges and frustrations but it is the people that make it great. I love the people I work with and I love that I can stand behind what Medifast is doing.
