I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, can make good money, meet and help great clients, can be a good working environment ( depending on who the center director is and if each employee does everything they are supposed to do to make the center work )

Cons

center directors come in late, leave early, most do not put in their 40 hours, spend a lot of time talking to other center directors about their own lives, have their own clients when employees could be seeing them to make money and build their own book --
hourly employees LOSE money when taking PTO -- only get paid hourly wage and small percentage of what would normally make with commission -- that's one reason I rarely take PTO -- can NOT afford to lose the rest of what I would be making if working

Advice to ManagementAdvice

center directors should clock in and out on computer so upper management can see when they are in center --
make PTO pay to equal what each employee makes when they are actually working - they could take the average for last 6 months or year

    Pros

    Overall the work environment was pleasant. Teams work together

    Cons

    The promotions offered to the customers affects the bottom line of the employees. They are the ones that feel the discounts that are offered in advertisements as our earning potential is decreased as the cost of foods and memberships are lowered. Also seasonal cuts in hours is a second decrease in pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the employees that sell the memberships, conduct the client interviews and build the customer base when eliminating earning potential.

    Pros

    Good people. Good benefits package. Decent severance package.
    This was a very good place to work seven years ago, before the Nestle buy-out. (Casual dress was every day, for example.)

    Cons

    (These comments apply to HQ.) Upper Management seems to be disconnected with employees, and doesn't seem to listen to input, although they say they do. (They removed the employee suggestion boxes years ago.) Current employment instability. Plus, pouring all resources into a software package that hasn't worked right in the 5 years it's been implemented.
    They have too many meetings to be able to get any real work done. (They may even have some meetings about whether they are having too many meetings.)
    Computer hardware is over 5 years old - too much money spent on bad software, not enough on good hardware.
    Laying off employees will not improve the software. (They just had another round of layoffs two days ago.) And laying off the key people for supporting the software certainly won't help, either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scrap the current software package. It will never work the way it was intended, due to the poor way it was originally coded. Put more energy into your people than your software. And listen to them. They know what works and what doesn't.
