    Pros

    Great co-workers, great health care, casual office.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to have a clear idea of where they're going. Company seems to be on the decline. Saw a great deal of cutting corners to save money but negatively impacted both user experience as well as employee experience, especially in the last year I was there. Compensation is lower than industry standards, despite being assured that is not the case.

    Pros

    Great environment, great people, great company purpose!

    Cons

    It's been a few years since I worked there, but the only con would be the separation and lack of integration between the different departments.

    "When infrequent opportunity arrives, it is flagged by company as spam. Does anyone actually get jobs from this company?"

    I have been working at WyzAnt part-time

    Pros

    Easy to sign up; name your own hourly rate; online platform easy to use

    Cons

    I've had 15-20 applications go nowhere despite having a highly qualified profile and being certified by Wyzant for multiple subject areas and special skills. Company takes 40% of your earnings initially; difficult to know what to set your rate at to be competitive; unable to determine if jobs you've applied for are still active. Only time contacted by "clients" has been determined to be spam, which seems to happen every couple weeks.

    I worked at WyzAnt

    Pros

    Great company! Owners are very cool people that really do care about their employees. Co-workers and managers are really cool people too. There is a lot to it, but there is great training to ease in to it. The office atmosphere is fun to work in and there are a ton of great perks too (happy hours, snacks, dogs in the office, etc).

    Cons

    Its customer service via phone/email. So the work can be repetitive and can be rough depending on the user that is contacting. Also, unless someone leaves in management, there really isn't too much room to grow.

    "Networking for pretty penny"

    I have been working at WyzAnt

    Pros

    Website has improved a lot. They continue to pour resources into online tutoring capabilities. Lots of potential clients. Set your own hours and rates.

    Cons

    1. WyzAnt commission structure is its largest issue. Although I understand the logic, it can looks like tutors and management can cheat each other. 2. Lag time between payments from clients.
