    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping clients lose weight and reaching their goals

    Cons

    Its too bad Jenny Craig doesn't treat their employees nearly as good as they treat their clients. You will work long hours, get paid minimal (minimum wage or maybe a few cents more oh and when you get a review be prepared to receive maybe 20 cents more an hour), be expected to make call after call to get back old clients since Marketing does nothing to bring in more business, get be rated and bullied by your Market Director oh and he/she will make sure to talk behind your back or spread rumors to other employees...hello are we in High School now? LOL I could keep going but I think you get the idea.

    Advice to Management

    First get some marketing! Come on don't you think its about time to actually advertise like other weight loss companies? If you want your business to sustain another 30 years treat your employees with respect and pay them what they are worth, you just might become more successful. Something else is get with the times! The technology used is ancient and no email in centers or apps for smart phones? Come on Nestle and Dana stop browbeating your employees and actually listen to them, but wait employees wont always be forthcoming when their MD is a bully.
