    I worked at Weight Watchers as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were wonderful and creative and there was so much potential. I really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    The staff was really small and we were expected to go above and beyond due to limited staff- it seemed to be a money making business and wished there was more support all around from office supplies to budget.

    Advice to Management

    I felt that everything was on a shoestring. Not sure that has changed but didn't feel there was ever enough of anything.
