    Pros

    Customer focused, people oriented, appreciate employees, and from top management right on through there is a strong effort to become more relevant in the marketplace. The atmosphere is somewhat progressive and relaxed, although busy.

    Cons

    Current marketplace puts this company into heavy competition, and therefore there is a higher concern with the bottom line right now than there has been in the not-so-distant past.

    Advice to Management

    There may be advantages to hiring a certain percentage of contractors at this time if this would help to save further.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. It's a leader in the industry. Everyone that works for Weight Watchers is a member and has lost weight with the program. The people that work for this company care about the members and do it because they love it. It is a very flexible position and easy to find subs if you can't make it to your meeting. There is also a discount on WW items.

    Cons

    You're never going to make a lot of money working as a leader. That is really the only negative of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    This is a great company to work with. You interact with your members and you get to be part of their journey through their weight loss!

    Cons

    This isn't a straight 8 hour job! Driving from different locations is a must because each meeting only ranges between 2-2 1/2 hours!

    Deadlines on projects are reasonable, work/life balance is great and encouraged, people are very nice and supportive

    Cons

    There are lots of meetings for everything, round the clock. If you are a sit at your desk and be left alone type, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Working with a company that helps change lives is an amazing feeling. The Central Office Team are fully supportive of our initiatives and are very encouraging for all levels of staff. I love being entrepreneurial, working from a home base office with all of the technology and support I need to help shape our Territory and ultimately health and wellness of individuals across our Country!

    Cons

    The only cons I can think of is if you need structure and thrive in a 9-5 office setting. Working with Weight Watchers is constantly testing the boundaries, trying new initiatives for our growth and ultimate member weight loss success! It is very collaborative - yet you have the permission to do what you need to do to drive your business!

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can share with Management to is continue to be open to ideas, thought processes, implementation processes and continually strive to share the Company's Service Vision will all levels of staff across the Country.
