    Former Employee - Corporate in New York, NY

    I worked at Weight Watchers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    WW Meetings in the office, knowledge and awareness of a great brand

    Cons

    WW is run based on politics, not skills. It's all about who you know and who you have worked with in the past.
    Revenue is put before process and in turn, the day-to-day is chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about who you are putting in what key roles, make sure they have the background and skills to effectively lead and manage their respective team(s).

    I worked at Weight Watchers part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people that I trained with, loved it. Was training to be a receptionist

    Cons

    Horrible training for a very complex job, promises that were made that were not kept. After 6 mo of no work no meetings I quit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a group training program the is longer than two meeting and you will get quality employees that will stay, not trainers that are afraid they are going to lose hours if they train you, so they don't. Don't hire so many people when there is no work.
