    Pros

    It is great to see Leadership taking an active interest in their employees. From day one, everyone has been welcoming, wanting to get to know me, make sure I am successful and actually wanting to know where I see myself in the Company down the road. I received an accolade shortly into my active employment and it was a shock to see a VP sending me a support and thank you message.

    Cons

    The Consumer Division of the Company has two divisions that unfortunately do not like to share best practices. This to me, inhibits Company growth. It would be nice to see both divisions have open discussion especially in regards to campaigns and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to show an active interest in your Staff. Celebrating a success in the workplace is critical if growth of the individual is to occur.

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

    Pros

    - Meaningful work since it has a positive impact on our clients. I love helping people.
    - Quality and competence of upper management is hit or miss. Some are really good, others are really bad. That doesn't mean that they are bad people, they just suck at they job.

    Cons

    - The CEO only cares about money. He has zero people skills and everything is always based on how the company can make more money. Yeah, I get it, money is important. But making you (the CEO) money is not why I come to work everyday. And maybe if you actually gave a crap about me I would work harder.
    - Basic training is good but inadequate. There is very little counseling training, even though counseling is our main job.
    - There is zero management training. If you get promoted into management, you're expect to simply know what to do. Therefore many managers are bad.
    - Watching people get promoted who make money but do it by exploiting people makes me sick.
    - Working Saturdays in no fun.
    - Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    - Upper management (CEO + regional managers + managers) need to model the behaviors that they wants from us employees.

    Pros

    I actually really liked the program itself

    Cons

    Twin rivers needs better management

    Advice to Management

    Needs new management. Don't hire someone and tell them what other employee (still there) they will be replacing. Very unprofessional especially when they will be training the new hire.

    Set your own hours.
    Helped people lose weight and feel better.

    Once you are through your circle of influence hard to get new clients.
