Current Employee - Assistant Sales Manager in Baltimore, MD

I have been working at Medifast full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Growing company with centers all over the east coast and Texas.
Intrinsic value associated with product: seeing people achieve success and lead a healthier lifestyle
Staff in my center consisted of very educated and amicable people
Four weeks of training in order to gain product knowledge and sales knowledge

Cons

Lack of communication/support between corporate and centers.
A lot of turnover due to lack of communication and organization
Hire individuals that are overqualified for what the company expects and hence, undervalue their employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide the employees within your centers with more support and guidance.
Allow them to utlize the skills and traits that they have aquired through education and experience
Be more upfront about what you expect

    Pros

    Very few...maybe the health insurance and PTO this is a Company in serious financial distress and will never be a true competitor in the weight loss industry. How can they be honest with their members if they are dishonest with their employees?

    Cons

    In case you didn't catch the caption above...run for your life. Probably one of the worst experiences of my career. How the National Sales Manager continues to keep her job is beyond me. I can assure you corporate management would not last a week much less a day in a weight control center. Recruiters are not honest, layoffs are done via phone, commissions are non existent, the mentality that Gym rats make the best managers and sales force is a farce. No surprise most S Florida locations will start closing their doors very soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! You made changes at the very top you need to look a little further under your noses starting at the Corporate office. I am forever thankful I no longer have to deal with Medifast but you need to know this company has devastated many people and lives that intrusted their livelihood. Eat well....sleep tight sweet Meredith.

    Pros

    Individual managers care a lot about their center, employees, and customers; the company is growing; the job is easy and straight forward; you get to know clients really well; you make a daily impact on peoples lives; most management (individual and corporate) are understanding and willing to work with you

    Cons

    The company is growing too fast -- they recently laid of a ton of employees in the MD/VA/DC area; corporate hides things from centers; things are always changing so employees in centers are often doing things "wrong"; some corporate workers don't care about field employees; programs are crazy expensive which can make it hard to get and keep clients; this jobs is ALWAYS about SALES....some upper management pretend to care about health and weight loss but really just care about money; employees are put through long hours without much appreciatio
