    Pros

    Excellent company! Great teamwork, friendly work environment, lots of opportunity to make a difference. Great focus on productivity and work/life balance. I LOVE my job and everyone I work with here and at the facilities. Lots of family-friendly work activities and community service events. Training department offers online and classroom courses for professional development. Robust benefit package plus free product and use of gym for employees. HR is very accessible. Follow-through on Open Door policy. Very glad to have found this company.

    Cons

    A few growing pains for a mid size company. Some processes have been grandfathered from a time when it didn't matter in a smaller organization. But that just means good projects to dig into for improvement - just bring your skills and experience to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to all employees. Continue raising the bar for company product line and new channels. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Medifast is a company with a great mission and committed Leadership. You know everyday that you're serving customers who want to make their lives better. The company pays competitively and has great benefits (including a company gym for employees). The company also has a very generous PTO plan and does a good job promoting work/life balance. Overall a really great company to work for!

    Cons

    A stronger profit sharing plan and stock ownership plan would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing focus on company growth and maintaining work/life balance.

    I have been working full-time for Medifast for close to 4 years now and love the FREE Medifast food. I've lost close to 15 pounds in the last few months with the help of Medifast! I also LOVE all of the benefits and employee discounts!

    Cons

    I wish the profit share program was better.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the profit share program and allow employee's to purchase Medifast stock through company's 401k plan.
