    Pros

    You can use your training and your certification in many ways and places. Gyms, schools, churches, etc.

    Cons

    Pay is not fabulous but you typically don't teach Zumba for the money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't raise monthly fees anymore; for those of us only able to teach one or two classes a week due to full time jobs, monthly dues can make a big difference in our bottom line.

  5. The company is young and vibrant! Making it fun to work for, but at times a bit stressful due to lack of communication.

    Pros

    They close for a multitude of holdays and close early.

    Cons

    ​Where to start........................At one point I was so hopeful and really enjoyed going to work and then I realized that as "nice" as they are it's all fake and they don't care ​all ​they take and take​. ​The ​managers​ in customer care​ have no idea what they are doing​.​ ​They ​have no policies what so ever. They DO NOT promote from within despite being told that they do. No job security at all in the time I have been with them they have announced 4 layoffs!!! The most recent one is the big customer care announcement​! At some point they are moving the department to Bulgaria and only keeping a select few people in the US office. So do you have a job??? You don't know because they aren't going to tell you until it's convenient for them. Do they not realize that people have families, bills and financial responsibilities??? It's bad enough they pay terribly and make employees pay higher out of pockets costs and now you don't even know if your going to have a job or benefits in the new year. Oh and to add even more salt to the wound they haven't even told people about packages other than a comment that you have to be in good standing otherwise no package.

    Advice to Management

    ​​Start paying attention to what's going on in your own company. ​If you took the time to send out anonymous surveys maybe you wouldn't need to lay so many people off and or move your customer care to Bulgaria. ​Your customer care managers and people and culture​ department are nothing but lawsuits waiting to happen. ​I hope for your sake that you will start listening before it's too late.

    Pros

    Company has focus on making the morale of the staff happy. Conventions, trips, and flexible schedules. They have a young and youthful atmosphere that makes it easy to work there. Has the feel of a tech startup with the amount of people of a medium-sized company. I've learned a lot of useful skills that can transfer to other future opportunities through a growing and expanding company.

    Cons

    Management issues all over; many revolving doors. A lot of management positions turn over in a very short period of time. There aren't many opportunities to move up, because there is already a set-base of individuals that control the flow. Unless you come in from the outside into a leadership position... you aren't going to advance very far.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people that can stick around longer than a year. When going through several different C-Level position in multiple departments over a short period of time. It isn't encouraging to the staff that has to work under new leadership every few months with a different vision.

    Pros

    It's a great way to stay in shape, and it's a lot of fun, plus a great way to network and explore different types of music and dance. Once you develop a customer base, you can get paid pretty decently, depending on the way you are being paid. Some instructors ask for a certain amount per person, and others are directly paid by a facility per class, in in that case, the pay is usually more consistent.

    Cons

    First you have to get certified, which costs money, and there's no real guarantee of a job, plus it's very difficult to just teach zumba for a living, as fun as that would be. There's also a lot of competition, and it's a huge challenge to get people to come to your class if they are already used to going to another class. Word of mouth, flyers, facebook page, etc. are the best ways, but none of it is guaranteed. Also, one is expected to pay $30 a month or so for a zumba instructors network online to stay "in the loop" of the zumba world. It's kind of a trick for those working in the higher corporate level to make even more money, although they will send cds with new music every month in return.
