Negative Outlook

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

Pros

Growing company with centers all over the east coast and Texas.
Intrinsic value associated with product: seeing people achieve success and lead a healthier lifestyle
Staff in my center consisted of very educated and amicable people
Four weeks of training in order to gain product knowledge and sales knowledge

Cons

Lack of communication/support between corporate and centers.
A lot of turnover due to lack of communication and organization
Hire individuals that are overqualified for what the company expects and hence, undervalue their employees

Advice to Management

Provide the employees within your centers with more support and guidance.
Allow them to utlize the skills and traits that they have aquired through education and experience
Be more upfront about what you expect

    Pros

    Individual managers care a lot about their center, employees, and customers; the company is growing; the job is easy and straight forward; you get to know clients really well; you make a daily impact on peoples lives; most management (individual and corporate) are understanding and willing to work with you

    Cons

    The company is growing too fast -- they recently laid of a ton of employees in the MD/VA/DC area; corporate hides things from centers; things are always changing so employees in centers are often doing things "wrong"; some corporate workers don't care about field employees; programs are crazy expensive which can make it hard to get and keep clients; this jobs is ALWAYS about SALES....some upper management pretend to care about health and weight loss but really just care about money; employees are put through long hours without much appreciatio
