    Pros

    I have been working full-time for Medifast for close to 4 years now and love the FREE Medifast food. I've lost close to 15 pounds in the last few months with the help of Medifast! I also LOVE all of the benefits and employee discounts!

    Cons

    I wish the profit share program was better.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the profit share program and allow employee's to purchase Medifast stock through company's 401k plan.

    Pros

    Pay is not bad, and the training is very good. Pretty good place to work.

    Cons

    Monthly sales goals can be a little high, making it harder for you to get bonuses. Not impossible though.

    Advice to Management

    You have a trainer who is micromanaging the centers. Its a little insulting to the center directors who are in charge of thier counselors.

    Pros

    Great product that works!
    Makes a difference in the lives of others.
    Wonderful coworkers.

    Cons

    High pressure sales environment! The company was disorganized and was constantly going through changes. In the 3 years that I was there, I (and all of the staff in my region) received 4 pay cuts. Management constantly pressures the staff to sell more and lost sight of the real purpose of Medifast....to help people. The hours were horrible and inconsistent. There was very little employee appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Value the customer and their health and quit raising prices on them. Value your employees. A "thank you" can go a long way.

    Pros

    benefits and the office is in a good location

    Cons

    The owner of this location is unprofessional and his demeanor is condescending. It seems that the company only cares about making a profit and doesn't care about their clientele.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the HR guidelines mandated by the state of California when dealing with employees. Take a workshop on how to treat people with dignity.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, free food, gym membership with FREE personal training are a plus. Great atmosphere and fun employee events. For the most part, leadership is solid and focused on our strategic goals. Really feel as though we're making a difference in peoples' lives.

    Cons

    Promotions have just begun to be the norm. In the past, they weren't as often.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open minded when hiring from within.
