Pros

CIO is good; coworkers are friend; flexible working hours; recently no over hours. Good location and easy to access. No traffic in the morning

Cons

Always need to worry about losing job. Management is not that good; always lack of requirement when a work is done.

Advice to Management

Not real IT company; need good project management; should be no monopoly of the knowledge; business should be better defined to grow.

    Pros

    Nice place to work friendly employees
    Benefits
    Remote work ability

    Cons

    None really.. it was great to work for them!

    Advice to Management

    None, the company is on it's last legs...

    To the previous poster here's what happened:
    > eDiets management pushed selling home delivery meal plans to compete with Nurisystems and let the community and online meal plans die out.
    > Spent millions on National TV and web advertising with no improvement; sales kept declining
    > Product supplier couldn't maintain quality.
    > Eventually bought out by As Seen On TV.com (ASTV) in 2013
    > ASTV killed the brand by switching to a celebrity focused business model (Redesign is nice though.)
    > Sold off meal delivery customers to a competitor
    > ASTV sold to Infusion Brands (Ronco) in 2014
    > Infusions Brand up for sale in Feb 2015 to highest bidder.
    > Site hasn't been updated since around July 2014

    1 STAR RATINGS, because the company isn't really isn't around any more.

    I worked at eDiets.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers in all departments were friendly and pleasant to interactive with. All brought good ideas to the table and carried their own weight.

    Cons

    There was a major misunderstanding between marketing, operations and real revenue which lead to a death spiral. Many good people were let go.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needed to communicate the objectives without making it a moving target.
