    Former Weightloss Counselor

    Weight Loss Counselor (Former Employee) Fort Washington, PA

    ProsOrganized and successful company. Pay and commission was great AND overtime was offered, frequently. Friendly, laid back environment with casual dress. The company was always bringing perks to the floor: gifts, giftcards, lunch, snacks. The amount of weighloss of the clients was so much more successful than I had anticipated prior to working at Nutrisystem. This made the job so exciting!!

    ConsI have no cons to share

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoved the available overtime, commission and perks!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place, even for a contractor

    Ecommerce (Current Employee) Fort Washington, PA

    ProsCasual atmosphere. Many people wear jeans. The new Wii and table games (foosball) in third floor common space give people a place to unwind.
    Very friendly people.
    I have been able to make my own schedule and come and go as fits my life. This is incredibly valuable.
    I have a great manager and team. My manager consistently has my back and my fellow team members go out of their way to help me with new work.

    ConsTensions definitely rise during diet season but it's more of a "all hands on deck" mentality. At least from my perspective stress was manageable, although as a contractor I didn't have much responsibility other than to get my work done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. This company is definitely going places!

    Good if you are an FT.... OK if you are a Contractor

    Analyst (Former Employee) Fort Washington, PA

    ProsWorked as a Contractor in their Business Dept not the Call Center.

    Applies to both FT/Contractors:

    - Freedom to work the way you want.

    - Casual Dress Code

    - Issues are resolved quickly

    - Value proposed suggestions

    Applies to Contractors:

    - Dont treat you like a second grade citizen

    ConsApplies to Contractors:

    - FT Managers micro-manage Contractors timesheet approval.
    If you charge 10-15 mins on a project ....you have to explain .....and if you work on many teams, then you end up explaining 5 different leads.
    They are like "....the meeting ended 10 mins early why did you charge 1 hr, shouldn't you charge 50 mins only...." kind of a thing. And this is with most managers. And you end up spending half hour just documenting the hours worked per project. Now where does that half hour go??? :P

    - Atleast in my department, they cared a Rats A** if you have knowledge or not. Which is a good thing if you are FT & bad if you are a contractor, coz they expect you to mentor/ coach the FT guy. And you know how it goes when it's time for the FT to give you credit ...NEVER!

    - Depending on the manager, complaints on the contractor are handled differently. One manager was balanced, others were biased towards the FTs. Period.

    Advice to Senior Management- Stop over spending on celebrities; instead use money for research and prove the science with data. Customers will buy.

    - Stop Micro-managing contractors.

    - If you expect 2 week notice from contractors before they leave, do the same when you let them go. :-)

    Open environment, direct feedback, rewards through pay for performance

    Administrative (Current Employee) Fort Washington, PA

    ProsOpportunity to take on new challenges, automomy to make decisions, great leadership team as of 2013, improvements in accountbility, engagement and company revenues!

    ConsIf you like to come to work and experience the same thing, day after day, this company is not for you. It attracts self-initiated, problem solvers, entrepreneurs, and resourceful people who enjoy new challenges and like to get positive results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work turning Nutrisystem around. The improved results speak to the efforts of the dedicated employees and clear business direction of the new leadership. I have seen several employees leave the company thinking the grass is greener elsewhere, only to come back within a few months.

    inside sales rep

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Fort Washington, PA

    Prosworked there 6 years, money was good (in the beginning) each year your commission went down, and down, anywhere between 7-10k

    Conspoor management, my supervisor started as a inside rep (when I did) he was an awful sales rep. I earned more than him. One time while he was my supervisor he took a sales call to show us what to do, say, etc. he was so awful, what a joke he was, he stuttered the whole time, he mad so many mistakes, they have unqualified supervisors, so management can control them better.

    Advice to Senior Managementthe company is like a sinking ship, every 2 years they change cfo. their stock keeps dropping,
    they haven't changed the product for the last 4 years, all they do is change discounts and add's. They don't even have celebrity spokes people anymore. they can't afford to pay them. I have one word to sum up company (TITANIC)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
