    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You'll work with some very talented people (director level and under)
    You'll be stretched thin, but have an opportunity to experience different roles and areas within the company giving you the opportunity to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Pay is terribly low
    You'll be promised raises and opportunities to get you to stay, but then nothing will ever come of them.
    Management (executive level and above) is a mess and most people in those roles are not qualified to be in then.
    NEPOTISM! This company has a serious problem with hiring and promoting family members and people close to the family. Almost every person in an executive role is there because they are related to the family or know the CEO and most are completely unqualified for that role.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your "worker-bees", they are the reason your company is still holding on, which is obvious given recent executive changes that have run a successful local company into the ground. Stop treating this company like it's a billion dollar international company. It is NOT! Please, save yourself some trouble and realize that - get back to basics.

    You pay your employees disgustingly low, while executive level management are making millions. Given lower level employees truly keep the business running you might want to consider higher salaries and more appreciate for them or you will lose talented people.

    Hopefully, someone is reading this and taking our comments into consideration. Your HR department is truly awful. No compassion for employees and they generally do not care about why they lost an employee. It's sad.

    As this company has grown it's has become cruel, which was not the case when former owner Brad MacDonald was around. Getting back to where you were 4 years ago could go a long way. I never thought how happy I was with the company when I started could have ended the way it did - feeling used, and unappreciated
