Nestle, Wake up and Smell the Coffee

Program Director (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsThe chance to make a positive difference in people's lives by supporting their weight loss goals.
Vast menu options. Centres are located in convenient, desirable locations. The benefit package offered for full-time is competitive. All employees receive a good opportunity to lose weight on the Jenny Craig program.

ConsSome of the centres are mismanaged and there is little to no accountablity. Some centres have an alarming high turnover.
Many clients drop off the program because of preservatives in the food items and they often complain the food is too expensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementNestle: If you want a return on your investment, you will have to dig deep. Centre Directors that work in Centres with an unusual high turnover should be investigated.

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