    I worked at Medifast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Helping people achieve their weight loss goals

    Cons

    Highly disorganized. They are understaffed and expect the 2-3 employees that are in the center to do EVERYTHING. They are too cheap to do advertising. Its about who you know not what you know. They fired 6 managers in a week just to pay for advertising in January. They are despicable. They are trying to sell to franchise buyers but the company sucks. They are bleeding money and they are too clueless to know how to get back on track. I would never work their again even if they tripled my salary. You have zero work life balance. You have to use PTO if you want a Saturday off... absolutely RIDICULOUS.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Don't just sit behind your desk while your company goes under and bark orders. Maybe you should try doing some of the ridiculous things you make us do..

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

    Pros

    Great programs and services. The program works and is the best out there in the marketplace.

    Cons

    The senior management of the division and the company don't have a clue. Weight loss is not like selling copiers! Customers and employees should be valued and treated with respect. They are your biggest asset and yet you ignore valuable feedback from both groups and this will contribute to the company's demise. You have lost some very experienced, capable, driven, passionate employees because senior management thinks they have all of the answers. Just look at the declining revenue, massive employee turnover and general unrest in the field and in the corporate office. Seems like it might be time for a change in leadership!

    Advice to Management

    Family members should step aside and let people who are willing to do the grunt work and have extensive experience with sales, marketing and operations in a field-based division, take on the challenge. You would be amazed at what can be accomplished when you have people in charge that others want to follow.
