Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Weight Watchers part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Working with the members to help them achieve success, knowing you were making a difference in their lives was great.

Cons

Expected to constantly increase attendance and sell product, but the corporation gave no support to accomplish their expectations. Service Providers who work in travelers locations where we had to set up for every meeting, tear down, work without computers were expected to perform at the same rate and with the same number of service providers as people who worked in CHAMP locations.

Advice to Management

Go into the meeting rooms and actually work a couple of meetings with the staff and under the same conditions the employees are expected to work under.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    WW Meetings in the office, knowledge and awareness of a great brand

    Cons

    WW is run based on politics, not skills. It's all about who you know and who you have worked with in the past.
    Revenue is put before process and in turn, the day-to-day is chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Think about who you are putting in what key roles, make sure they have the background and skills to effectively lead and manage their respective team(s).
