- inter-division communication is below average
- there's a lack of intelligence amongst people given key positions in the company which leads to bad decision making

    I worked at Medifast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the center level employees are really awesome to work with and there are only about 3-6 people in each location so there isnt a lot of confusion with too many people being around. The program does actually work if people follow it so most of the customers are happy.

    Cons

    The corporate level is all screwed up, things are constantly changing and hardly ever communicated to center staff, you only find out that things have been changed once you are told that something that used to be right is now wrong. The upper level staff all watch out for each other and will throw a center employee under the bus at any moment to save their own butt!!!
