Management

Management (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsCompany has a good health care program. It is rewarding work knowing you are helping people discover a positive vision of themselves.

ConsJenny Craig has numerous issues. They penalize employees for the very issues that were a direct result of their own doing. They have unrealistic expectations of their employees. There is a great deal of vague expectations that change throughout the course of the year. Their methods of "training" people are very inconsistent. HR is a nightmare!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
