    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Weight Watchers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people that I trained with, loved it. Was training to be a receptionist

    Cons

    Horrible training for a very complex job, promises that were made that were not kept. After 6 mo of no work no meetings I quit

    Advice to Management

    Get a group training program the is longer than two meeting and you will get quality employees that will stay, not trainers that are afraid they are going to lose hours if they train you, so they don't. Don't hire so many people when there is no work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Weight Watchers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Decent benefits
    - Once was a productive call center
    - Free WW membership

    Cons

    - Hostile work environment: upper management demands 50-60 hour weeks for little pay. Refuse and you'll be pressured into quitting.
    - Layoffs and then hiring to replace those laid off does nothing to create a team environment
    - Too many people are bad at what they do, and as a result others are left to fix the problem.
    - Poor upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Build employee morale. Starting to hire new managers months before you even offer a lay-off package to your current team of managers is terrible for company morale. Hire quality employees, expect quality results and reward those who deliver.
