I have been working at Lose It! full-time (More than a year)
- Crazy-Good Benefits
Not just the insurance and options, either. When I tell my friends and family about things like company trips they can't believe the benefits could be that good; they literally think they've misunderstood what I've told them.
- Aggressive Compensation

Advice to Management
Keep on keepin' on.
