Medifast – Why Work For Us?

1980 was a pretty momentous year. A team of young Olympians performed a miracle on ice and Dr. William Vitale formed Jason Pharmaceuticals. The new company began production of a meal replacement product under the name Medifast.

Under the guidance of CEO Bradley T. MacDonald, Medifast experienced extremely impressive growth, rising to more than $300 million in annual revenue. And in 2010, Medifast was named the #1 Small Company in America by Forbes magazine.

Today, Medifast is the brand recommended by over 20,000 doctors since 1980. But the success we’re most proud of isn’t found in accounting ledgers. It’s found in the glowing faces of the people whose lives we improve each and every day. That’s what it’s truly all about.

Imagine going to work every day knowing that you’re helping to change someone’s life for the better. How would that make you feel? If you answered… amazing, then a career at Medifast might be a perfect fit for you!

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO


    It is great to see Leadership taking an active interest in their employees. From day one, everyone has been welcoming, wanting to get to know me, make sure I am successful and actually wanting to know where I see myself in the Company down the road. I received an accolade shortly into my active employment and it was a shock to see a VP sending me a support and thank you message.


    The Consumer Division of the Company has two divisions that unfortunately do not like to share best practices. This to me, inhibits Company growth. It would be nice to see both divisions have open discussion especially in regards to campaigns and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to show an active interest in your Staff. Celebrating a success in the workplace is critical if growth of the individual is to occur.
