A company that is moving in the right direction.
There have been several changes within the organization and it’s all been for the better. The culture is more inclusive, finally where they need to be with technology, are open to bold moves, promotes new ideas and avoids legacy thinking. A fun working environment.
Pros
Work from home opportunities for some roles, bonus, work life balance, wellness benefit on top of regular benefits, moving towards exciting new technology, global opportunities, fun work environment, positive workplace
Cons
some employees are very resistant to change or learning technology.

A company with all the wrong priorities
While WW's mission to globalize wellness and focus on food fitness and mindset is fantastic to be a part of, the overall management and Sr. Leadership completely miss the mark on caring about their own employees.

The classic situation where corporate stocks the fridge with yogurt and they bring in a ping pong table because they believe this will make their employees engaged - all the while missing the mark on talent development opportunities that people with career aspirations truly seek from companies that have the perceived clout of Weight Watchers.


So much focus given towards the members which is absolutely the correct approach for business - they fail at the most basic human connections internally. Sr. Management could not care about you one little bit as a human being, and due to the poor business performance to begin the 2019 year the high stress environment, expectation to work around the clock - and complete lack of acknowledgement from leaders within the organization to the folks to ultimately deliver remarkable work on a day to day is astounding.


Run and hide - especially from Marketing roles. The VP of marketing in Canada, is an empty shell of a leader and an absolute tyrant who has no concept of what it takes to galvanize a team or recognize exceptional work, or keep her employees happy - I can unequivocally say the worst leader I have ever seen.

Weight Watchers is a positive work place where you can meet people with the same goals you have in weight loss. Best to participate and complete program successfully before starting to work for this company.

Culture and employment are contracts and temporary
Turn over are fast. Most of the employees are under contract, and temporary so it explains why the turn over is fast. Their structure is very complex.
Pros
hours on summer is good
Cons
not nice culture

Money orientated
Weight Watchers International bought Weight Watchers AB and many clients discontinued their services. Many groups closed and workers became unhappy and moved on with their lives. The standards of the company have dropped.

Cutthroat retail company but once you learn the ropes, it gets easier.
A typical day at work involved reviewing spiel for members' presentation/meeting.

I learned losing weight for many doesn't mean leading a healthy lifestyle. Values of the company differ from its clients.


My immediate boss believed if I am successful, she will be successful.


Hardest part of the job: employer doesn't have your back but has the back of the customer who can oftentimes be demanding and unfair.


Most enjoyable part of the job: I was able to inject humor in my presentations and I could creatively write up a weekly newsletter to my members to motivate them to stick to a healthy lifestyle, even if they weren't all onboard with that. Making a difference in some way.
Pros
I motivate by example, members/clients motivated me.
Cons
Customers were demanding, downright mean when they didn't lose weight.

Very difficult
The company demands are unreasonably high for Territory Managers resulting in very high turnover.

If the local management team is not found on sharing of strengths, complete transparency and cooperation from ALL team members, this job will never allow for a work-life balance.


It is a 7 day workweek, with a dedication of a minimum of 10hrs/day (weekdays) and 3-5hrs/day (weekends). Simply overwhelming.


Too bad, as this can be quite a rewarding career (helping others and coaching motivated employees), but with such high demands and expectations, something is going to have to give....(unfortunately, this will most probably mean giving up your family and/or personal life.
Pros
good benefits and salary - ONLY to territory managers though
Cons
Extreme working schedule and unreasonable expectations from TM's

Open, friendly, and collaborative environment.
Recent renovation has improved office decor, added healthy vending machine, and a slow treadmill with work table. Coworkers are friendly and always willing to work together. Once you are here you are apart of the team. Weight Watchers is committed to being a team. They have monthly and quarterly meetings that inform all staff of company activities or to work together to improve processes and collaboration between departments.
Pros
Great coworkers and great work/life balance
Cons
Limited career advancement options

A really great experience.
I had wonderful co-workers. They were fabulous people.
The hardest part of the job, was when a member would come in and were disappointed with their results on the scale. That being said the best part of the job was the overwhelming amount of members who were and are still successful with the program.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Unprepared staff members.
