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

    Pros

    Corporate has a strong emphasis on work culture and values. The company cares not only about the wellness of their clients but their workers as well, including free product and access to work gym (with personal trainers.) They provide opportunities to keep learning about your field and enhance your skills. Working for a company that allows you to see success and life-changing experiences of the clients is very rewarding and makes coming to work very enjoyable.

    Cons

    The company is growing and adapting relatively quickly, you just have to be able to learn and work with them.

    I have been working at Medifast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medifast is a company with integrity and a leadership team that cares about people. The company is committed to its employees and provides numerous resources to help improve lives. You are NOT just a number and the company goes out of its way to make sure you are celebrated and taken care of. This includes things like profit sharing bonuses, access to a first rate gym and free personal training, flexible schedules, continuing education resources, and the list goes on and on...

    Cons

    Given the current size and growth of the company, the rate of change and number of new faces can sometimes be a bit overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting your employees as you have done and never compromise the high standards and values which have successfully brought the company this far.

    I have been working at Medifast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I find the organizational culture to be very open and friendly. Leadership has been working hard to improve employee engagement based off of the survey mentioned in some of the previous posts. There are some great benefits including tuition reimbursement, free food product and an AWESOME gym with free personal training. There has also been a great focus to get involved in the community over the last year, and I'm proud of the contributions Medifast is making.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to include.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving the ball forward listening to your employee base.
