    Is that Tammy Faye or the Manager?

    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time

    Pros

    Supporting clients with their health and fitness goals. Consultants do a great job of running the centre without supervision.

    Cons

    Management has done a great job of creating a hostile and abusive work environment. Isn't it supposed to be about helping the client? Instead employees' time is spent listening to management's dysfunctional private life and then being disciplined for not completing paperwork. Also, there's not much support for the male clients. Compensation is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wait, isn't this why you're paid the big bucks?

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Discounted Jenny meals ($2) if you are in need of losing weight. Also a Nestle store in the Jenny Craig corporate building is nice to buy discounted candy and ice cream.

    Cons

    There has been 4 waves of layoffs in 2012 as the company is hurting in this bad economy. There are many homegrown managers that have been with the company for 10+ years but, don't have a clue what they're doing and pretend like they do. In the last round of layoffs, about 7 managers were demoted which was over due to say the least. There has been an on going conflict between those with the "Ma & Pa Shop" attitude from when Jenny & Sid owned the company and the real corporate managers put in place by Nestle who now owns Jenny Craig. Until the company is ready to be a full blown grown up corporation with real management, there will always be high turn over and employee dissatisfaction there. Management goes in circles not accomplishing much year after year. The company morale is at an all time low and I do not recommend working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees, listen to them as they are in tune with what's happening outside of your 10 meetings a day with other managers, train your employees, hold people accountable for once, mentor and develop the employees who demonstrate growth potential, and stop burying the little issues as they are the ambers to the big fires that you're constantly having to put out. Also learn from Nestle on how to run a company!
