    I worked at Medifast full-time

    Pros

    PTO, benefits and pay were good for old location but just ok for new location. Great place for men.

    Cons

    Upper Management. CEO is a two headed monster. What you see is NOT what you get. CFO only cares about himself, absolutely no respect for lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Expect turnover.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great
    Former president was amazing

    Cons

    Management has no diversity at all
    Micromanagement at all levels
    Bad culture

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. Stop losing so many good people due to napoleon complex mini-leaders. Get some diversity on all levels; having people just like you to tell you how smart you are will not work for long

    Pros

    The Pay is good but

    Cons

    Some of the managers talk smart to you and try to belittle you also talk about you while standing near. Don't get sick cause you leave when they tell you to and then points you receive even with doctor notes. Overtime then no work, you can't rely on steady pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk down to employees, work as a team and people will stay longer. Be honest with employees how many orders that need to be done.

    I worked at Medifast full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job is easy. Free meals, shakes ext.....Mon-Fri unless it’s around the holidays or end of the year. Fun Company Christmas party.. Fairly good Ins prices.

    Cons

    There are so many so where to begin. First off you don’t leave till they say you do. So you can never really make much needed plans on a daily basis. There are a few Co workers that expect you to be as fast as they are only after a few days or a week.. They have too high of expectations too soon. Some days you can work 5-6 hrs and then other days it can be 10-12 hr days and you never know till the day of. No one wants to live and work like that.. Need to pay more for the work you do.
    Just a very disappointing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t bully your employees. Not everyone is going to work at the same pace. You need to give new employees more time before you are constantly on their back about speeding up they way they pick.

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

    Pros

    The value Medifast sells works for its customers. The business is, for the time being, as healthy as it's been.

    Cons

    It's getting healthy at the expense of people. Toxic environment there since new leadership came in. Strong leadership is leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.

    Pros

    OK money. Really nice to be able to help people.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about its people.

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to really think before you push things out that are not ready. We are working so hard to keep up with to many calls about things that should have been right in starting this. You need to listen because as soon as all of us heard you was making them all reset there passwords we were going to get too many calls. This shows that whoever is at the top is clueless unless you don't care and thats what it feels like. Its just about the money. Our bosses are trying to do everything they can like feeding us all the time, giving gifts and prizes and all kinds of stuff but it doesn't matter when the entire office leaves especially the IT deopartment who caused all this mess. we are here all day long and they ask us to work so much overtime but that department is empty. why do they get to leave early and we have to work like slaves to fix there mess. they just need to think and care about there people.

    Medifast is a great company to work for. I've been here for 2 years, and this is the first time in my life where I actually love to go to work. Our new facility is beautiful; we have a great team and it feels like a family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons at this time.
