    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company culture is friendly. Most people are willing to help others. My department is commit to deliver quality products. The company is seeking ways to reduce cost.

    Cons

    Poor communication across teams and departments. Frequently, we found that our internal stakeholders didn't like the final products. There were always enhancements and feature change requests at the end of the releases. Thus, additional support and work have to be added.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees to ask the right questions, think outside of the box and go above and beyond to meet customer's expectations,

    Pros

    Helping people every day to achieve their weight loss goals. It's extremely rewarding to be a part of helping and seeing someone change their life for the better. Growing with the company is extremely supported

    Cons

    Depending on where your location is the clients can be a nightmare (rude, demanding, unwilling to follow program.) The company is not doing well at this time so there is a lot of pressure to increase business, however, higher level not contributing.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to value consultants and hire top notch employees, then you need to pay them for it. Most employees aren't paid a living wage with the commission taken away.

    Pros

    Nestle Store (before they were sold). Ability to telecommute from home. Not more to add after the first two....

    Cons

    Minimal support for continuous education. Senior managers threatened by some people who pursue other career opportunities that may end up skipping over their authority. Insensitive to family issues. Management HIGH on Power Trip. Creating an atmosphere of division in all teams. Lacks eagerness to allow individuals to improve themselves. Having no direction or clear strategy on what the company plans to do. People pretending to know their jobs when they clearly have no idea with what they are doing. Salary raises is an issue as managers will constantly give just enough of a rating on your performance reviews to give you little to no salary raise each year.

    WATCH YOUR BACK!

    Advice to Management

    Just like most people suggesting things here on LinkedIn regarding JC: Have people with real world experience run the company. Stop patting yourselves in the back when clearly the company has not done much since getting acquired by Nestle. Listen to your employees. And do not threaten your people in case they feel like speaking against the norm.
