    I worked at WyzAnt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is easy, co-workers are very nice, free snacks/full kitchen, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability, favoritism of certain employees over others, lots of micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the your employees well being and follow through on all promises. Also, accountability (again) of each employee is key.

    Pros

    You meet nice people that you are able to help with your skills. If you are good at what you do, they keep coming back, making your business grow and you easily get additional clients who request your services. The inital 40% cut is not unusual, as the company supplies your clients. However, it lessens as you get more students. You have flexibility to choose your clients.

    Cons

    This is only a part time job, and you have to plan for times when there is less demand for your services, like winter break. You can also get inundated during times like the end of the semester or the school year, when all your students have exams and papers due. It may be hard to get initial clients, but once you do, the demand grows.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and support good tutors who make your business grow. Advertise quality services, not low cost services.

    Pros

    Lots of students and easy to set up details of tutoring

    Cons

    Too big of a percentage taken from tutor

    Pros

    You are able to set your own schedule, see thousands of students across the country and set your own rates.

    Cons

    Pay is good although they take a 40% cut until you work atleast 20 hours. Once you reach that it drops to 35%. Good way to start off if you haven't been able to connect with any students on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Take a smaller portion of the tutors hourly wage. Hard to find any motivation to drive to meet students when they are farther away for only a one hour session.

    I have been working at WyzAnt (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very consistent with job updates. The site is organized. The messaging is a nice feature between parents and me. Updating and submitting lessons is very easy.

    Cons

    I have not been here long so I haven't much to say, but I do wish the boat percentage was higher. All you get is 60% of what you charge.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher percentage. 60% is not that much when you are gathering materials, planning, perhaps driving to the location, and so on. You might get more tutors that way.

    Pros

    Independence. Work when you want to.

    Cons

    They treat trained tutors as garbage. They deduct 40% of tutors earnings.

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for the tutors and before deactivating the account create a step wise deactivation where you give three chances to tutors before taking any unethical step
