I have been working at Medifast

Pros

- there are good people that work here that truly believe that they're helping america become healthier
- there are competent people that care about how they perform their jobs
- there are certain departments in the company that run like well-oiled machines

Cons

- there's a lack of employee morale and motivation
- upper management makes decisions that aren't necessarily logical. perhaps the decisions are logical to them but they don't do a good job of explaining their decision making process to their subordinates
- lower compensation compared to other companies
- inter-division communication is below average
- there's a lack of intelligence amongst people given key positions in the company which leads to bad decision making
- medifast still functions with a small company mentality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- pay more to get quality people. put more effort into hiring quality people.
- focus on the growth of employees
- work on improving employee morale

    I worked at Medifast full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the center level employees are really awesome to work with and there are only about 3-6 people in each location so there isnt a lot of confusion with too many people being around. The program does actually work if people follow it so most of the customers are happy.

    Cons

    The corporate level is all screwed up, things are constantly changing and hardly ever communicated to center staff, you only find out that things have been changed once you are told that something that used to be right is now wrong. The upper level staff all watch out for each other and will throw a center employee under the bus at any moment to save their own butt!!!
