How are the career development opportunities at Wodify?

Pros

Free beer/wine/snacks. Casual work attire that could sometimes be mistaken for pajamas. Decent colleagues at the entry/associate level

Cons

If you're not best buds with the CEO, you are expendable regardless the amount of value you may bring to the organization. This company lacks any true direction and will turn its back on the hardest-working employees at the drop of a pin (this happened a couple times while I was there). Some employees act like they operate in the Wild West, making up their own rules and circumventing their own management if they don't get their way. Tough luck if you're not a "favorite" of the C-Level team, as they'll just dismiss you as difficult to deal with even if you bring up good ideas and valid concerns. The business never learns from their mistakes, especially around product development and product releases. On a handful of occasions, product/engineering would make a mistake during a roll-out and management would expect support and sales staff to work over the weekend to fix it. I'm all about chipping in, but this is something that would happen multiple times for the SAME reason. They try to paint a picture of how scrappy and entrepreneurial they are. It's all lip service and a "cooler" way to say they don't have any clue what they're doing and could be forced to fire half the staff in a week's notice. The workplace culture is TOXIC even though the org claims they've done so much work to improve it. They may have tried but certainly nothing stuck. There are a couple people there that aren't going anywhere anytime soon that will practically ensure Wodify will remain a quick cup of coffee along the journey of a talented individual's career path.

Advice to Management

Come back down to earth. Take a good look at the people and the processes you have in place. Just because something has worked well in the past doesn't mean it's going to ensure growth for a "scrappy" business.

Does Wodify have any mentoring programs?

Pros

The perks were pretty cool, however I felt most of them were designed to keep you in the office for longer than 40 hours a week.

Cons

It was expected that you work over 40 hours a week. Upper management, besides CEO, have no idea what they are doing. I personally felt that the training could have been better. While the training period is pretty long, which I thought was a great idea, it's not super hands on with the person training you. One thing I did enjoy was that they do events in the community, however each time I took part I felt it was more for a photo opp then for the actual event.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Wodify?

Pros

I've got to say, I've worked for a few different tech companies and this one is light years ahead of where they should be from an operational standpoint. Everything is about teaching employees and clients how to fish, instead of fishing for them. I can't tell you how important this is for scaling, reducing employee burnout, and empowering your clients to truly understand your product (which will ultimately help them understand any other product they use in the future). You're guided through everything, although, they will not hit the "save" button. I love that. Second, this whole operation isn't about being featured in a Forbes article or making a quick buck. It's truly about being involved in the fitness industry and being a partner to all of those participating. Everybody I work with actually wants to make the entire experience better, whether that is CrossFit, MMA or any other fitness class in that spectrum; they are constantly finding ways to make the product more engaging for athletes/students/clients around the world. I can't tell you how important that mentality is. They promote a healthy lifestyle/exercise, and because of that, everybody who works there is always happy. We have some fun internal healthy habit challenges/competitions using our very own apps. It's amazing. They even encourage you to take one meeting a day from your phone while you're on a walk getting some fresh air and sunshine. It's a small tech company, so obviously you have to be a an ambitious self-starter to succeed. Why wouldn't you want to work along people like that? They certainly provide you with all of the resources needed to succeed. Very smart people work here. You can learn a lot and be given opportunities you wouldn't get elsewhere. Lastly, they are totally transparent. Everybody has a stake in the business. They take care of their employees, truly. I come in happy and leave happy every single day. That's all anybody can ask for.

Cons

Lots of different softwares to learn for internal operations but that always comes with time.

What is the feeling of job security at Wodify?

Pros

Good Salary Decent Benefits Nice people at the Associate/Entry Level

Cons

Wodify will unfortunately never make it to the next level because the CEO and his leadership team are incapable of retaining good and talented people. There is a reason why the average tenure of the current employees is less than a year. One of the cultural values that Wodify claims to stand by is "Ask Why". When you do "ask why", you are thought of as a nuisance and then dismissed. Your job is literally never safe and you constantly feel as though upper management is looking to get rid of you. The company, as well as the product, are both unstable and unpredictable. Do not be fooled by the nice office, the smiling people that you interview with, and the "culture"; Wodify is a sinking ship so long as the CEO is steering it.

Advice to Management

Hold on to good and talented people. Look back at the cultural values you put in place and ask yourselves if you are really making decisions based on these values. Get someone with actual leadership experience on your leadership team.
