I worked at Weight Watchers full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

motivated coworkers, cappucino machine in the kitchen, summer Fridays

Cons

Wreckless disregard for longtime employees who give their all to the company; shortsightedness on the part of senior-level executives.

Advice to Management

it's not a beer or food company, it's a PEOPLE company. What was the point of laying off hard-working, engaged employees so you can bring in overpaid consultants?

    I have been working at Weight Watchers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great mission, which most employees are very dedicated to. Good benefits, decent work-life balance. Some teams have a greater sense of community than others but it's generally a friendly work force.

    Cons

    We are still dealing with outdated, legacy systems, however this is one of the main focuses of the company to fix in the next year. Silos are still present, though there is an effort to break them down.

    Advice to Management

    We need a single unified front - which comes from the top down. Make good on previous promises - you have dedicated employees who believe in the mission.
