I have been working at Weight Watchers part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Helping people towards a healthier lifestyle

Cons

The new program for 2014 has made their approach in the first 4 weeks simpler, but neglected to recognize those who have contributed through out 2013... the reason???? A dollar an hour more.

Advice to Management

Jim Chambers: Your service providers work hard and are your bread and butter. Ignoring the fact that these people need to be recognized on a local level each year is your first big mistake.

    Pros

    Some smart and passionate people. A meaningful mission. The new leadership seems to have the right vision for the future.

    Cons

    It's a very bumpy ride right now. The transformation of this old-guard company is going to be slow and painful.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with staff more and more often. If you think you're communicating a little too much, you're probably still not communicating enough. If you think you're way overcommunicating, you've probably got it just about right.

    Pros

    Weight Watchers has a wonderful mission and has very dedicated employees as a result. Good benefits, convenient office locations. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive. Corporate seemed very mismanaged, which caused a lot of high turnover. There always seemed to be a disconnect between management and lower staff. It sounds like senior management has changed, so hopefully this has gotten better.
