    Pros

    GREAT PROGRAM! Weightloss that was easy to understand and fully focused on the long term success of its clients. Fun and energetic place to work.

    Cons

    Lack of organization and training from upper management. Each center is expected to hold its own leading to slower sharing knowledge and new information to consultants.

    Pros

    The program itself is great! The clients find true success which is the best part of the job.

    Cons

    The management has past debt problems and is in over her head. Not trustworthy

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    Pros

    The program is successful if followed correctly, and they have some amazing products. Some of the consultants really care about their clients, and go out of their way to help them in their weight loss journey.

    Cons

    The supervisors and owners come off as money hungry and demand a lot from their employees. The products are pushed to the extreme, and the managers are under a lot of stress to perform to a certain monetary goal, causing problems among staff and clientele.

    Advice to Management

    MRC is a business and understandably needs to make money, but not at the expense of hard qorking consultants and struggling clients. Lighten up on the harsh emails, too.

    Pros

    Helping people find themselves and be happier healthier people is very furfilling

    Cons

    They are changing the pay scale and allowing distributorships so it will affect all consultants paychecks in one way or the other.

    Advice to Management

    When you take care of your people, they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Very fulfilling helping people lose weight and change their lives. Medical insurance, dental, and vision. There are chances for advancement.

    Cons

    No 401k, no PTO is allowed to be taken in November or December, and any PTO must be approved 6 weeks prior. Communication is very poor, and it is a very high pressure sales environment.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more

    Pros

    Meeting with clients, helping people make life changing decisions, meeting great co-workers

    Cons

    HORRIBLE, and I mean HORRIBLE upper management. Our region was taken over by a Supervisor who did not want us and made it out here maybe twice in 1 year. No direction, no advice, just pushy about products, numbers, sales, sales, sales, sales!!! Every step we thought we were taking forward, our supervisor called and bashed us pushing us two steps backwards. Very discouraging.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to praise the employees you have. Stop paying people pennies when we have expensive degrees and know we are worth what you falsely promised us in the beginning. Do not paint such a perfect picture that your main priority is it change peoples lives when really you just want to shove pills down there throat.

    Pros

    I loved working with the clients. II was always top in sales at my store and did very well. I enjoyed my manager and the people I worked with a lot.

    Cons

    There was never any trouble until we were sold and bought out by corporate. Our new regional management was absolutely awful! Their favorite thing to do was belittle you until you put in your notice. There is no room for advancement at all, even though I was told I would be promoted to full time I never was. They loved to feed you lines like everything there was so great. They sure did want you to work like you were making millions, but in reality you are getting the same amount as McDonalds workers with no health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to have more recognition for being so good at my job. I really took pride in it before the switch in Regional Management.
