Like witnessing a downward spiral of incompetence.

Pros

Very fair hourly wage.
Managed health care plan well enough.
Nice (annoyingly over-secured) new facility w/gym & locker rooms.
There WAS a very good staff in place before management was exposed as incompetent, then they quit or were laid off (while less tenured, less knowledgeable counselors were kept on).

Cons

Being embarrassed because I had more managerial experience then most (or all) of the Counseling Department supervisors combined.
CONSTANT employee turnover (at least 75% over three years).
Know-nothing department management became robotic and exceedingly micromanaging (virtually every SECOND of your time is accounted for).
Insecure management created an us-vs-them environment.
Department management's inability to develop & motivate the staff.
Employees are partially in the dark about new promotions and website changes because they're consistently rolled-out poorly.
What company has a Christmas Party that ONE-THIRD of the staff can't go to?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Gut the call center supervisory staff, most of whom were promoted because of their product knowledge (now mostly outdated), not because they had experience in managing people, leading or developing talent. Streamline the communication, hold the call center management accountable. Train and develop the staff better. I would've done this for you, but the Counseling Department thoroughly botched offering me even just a minor promotion.

    Pros

    Beautiful workplace, great in house benefits.

    Cons

    Uncertainty about the strength of the company. As a marketing firm for weightloss products they fail at marketing.
