    Cons

    - Relatively inexperienced exec team - Bootstrapped can mean less resources than competitors - Fast-paced + every team member having a lot of responsibility can mean long hours sometimes - We aren't allowed to bring dogs to the office YET!

    Pros

    The company has really turned a corner over the last year. Management is very open to new thinking and employee and customer feedback. We're constantly trying to improve and are constantly reinvesting in hiring and making the company more scalable.

    Cons

    There is still some figuring things out as we go and some of the changes and hiring are taking some time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I think you're on the right track and I'm looking forward to where the next year takes us.

    Pros

    Amazing team, smart individuals, cool office environment

    Cons

    The Founder/CEO. There is no real HR and no executive team or board to keep him in check. If he will have anything to do with your role, don't take it. There isn't a culture issue, there's a leadership issue. It's a shame because everyone who works there is smart and amazingly talented, but the CEO thinks he needs to break people down in order for them to be good employees. He has a short fuse and no interest in rectifying...

    Pros

    Great people - you can learn a lot from all of them Beautiful office Great tools to work with

    Cons

    This is a company that lacks direction, values, and any true identity. I was originally going to say that the communication within the company needs improvement because no one ever seems to know what's going on, but I've since realized that this is only a product of the fact that there is no vision. If you're looking to be hired at Wodify, do yourself a favor and ask the people you interact with about the company mission...

    Advice to Management

    Get some training. New fancy tools like duuoo and office vibe aren't going to solve your problems. Define your company missions, values, and culture - then stick to it. Learn how to be more professional in the workplace. Most of your entry level employees can show you the way in case you're unsure. Improve your core product - it's what the people want.

    Pros

    At Wodify you get to be a part of a global team who is passionate, driven, and not afraid to work hard. You never have to worry about your colleagues carrying their weight. Wodify is leading the CrossFit market for gym management software and the company is building several exciting new products launching in the next couple months so I feel confident the company will continue to innovate and expand in years to come.

    Cons

    The company does move quickly so sometimes you need to be flexible to keep up with the fast-paced environment and occasionally put in extra hours to see a project through.

    Advice to Management

    Consistently communicate priorities and goals of the company so teams can stay aligned.

    I worked at Wodify full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The people are great and the pay is decent. Note: The company solicits reviews from employees so do not believe everything you read on here. The culture also dramatically varies across office locations, so pay close attention to the location that you are looking at.

    Cons

    - Work life balance is horrible, employees frequently work long hours and are expected to drop important plans last minute. - Management does not respect employees - Employees, especially women, are frequently spoken to in a way that is not appropriate in any environment, especially at work. Lewd, demeaning, and derogatory comments are frequent and unwelcome and unfortunately occur with no assistance from HR. - Management...

    Advice to Management

    When asking employees for feedback you should try to actually listen to what they have to say rather than referring to it as trolling or complaining. If the company actually considered the input of its employees or treated them with respect its likely that turnover would not be so high.

    While the pros may be few and far between, there are certainly some here that can be seen at face value. -Casual work attire -Good pay and insurance benefits -Snacks, beer, and wine in the office -Some of the best and brighest peers to ever have been assembled -Comfortable office setting -Good exposure to different skill sets and tools.

    Cons

    -As other reviews have stated in the past, you can't help but feel the pressure of "walking on eggshell". It's not just from the management, but the product itself. Aside from not knowing 'who' will shut you down this week, you'll worry just as much about what will go wrong with a deployment to create a whole new set of issues to resonate through and interrupt your routine. -While they say they do, management never...

    Advice to Management

    Be genuinely open to feedback and criticism. It's a shame that people love this company and what the product can be, but they're ultimately terrified of repercussions if they go providing real feedback. If you really want to grow you're going to have to be open to change, new ideas, and different ways of doing things. People will need to specialize and you will have to leverage new talents and skills. Just because...

    My aspirational leadership style and values were at odds with Wodify’s and there were too many misalignments. Ultimately it just wasn’t the right fit.

    Pros

    Pay is above average. The people are nice.

    Cons

    You work a lot and are expected to be available any minute any day. Work/Life balance non existent. Do not have an opinion that might disagree with CEO or you might be next. Management are CEO's hand puppets, enforcing his dictatorship for their own benefit instead of being the voice of their teams. Most people are not happy but are stuck because the pay is above average.

    Not worth it, they don't care.

    Pros

    I am only writing something because there is a twenty word minimum. Unfortunately, the first sentence was not twenty words.

    Cons

    - The promises the hiring team/management/upper management make are almost certainly lies. - There is absolutely no work/life balance - just a "work now" mentality. If you calculate your hourly rate, you can make the same rate substitute teaching. - You're not part of a team. You're hired and upper management believes they own you. Like a dog. - SMEs have been fired for doing their job - asking questions and attempting...
