Mission: Wodify keeps working to transform fitness with technology, deliver powerful data, streamline gym operations, and connect a global community of athletes.
I have been working at Wodify (Less than a year)
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. You probably won't be taught them, but good to keep in your back pocket to develop later in your free time.
-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 seems to learn from their past mistakes. Often repeating the same tropes and mishaps while constantly reassuring that, "we'll never make that mistake again."
-Work/life balance is also a prevalent theme. Good luck trying to find a daily regiment; you''ll be married to this job and the office. Even when you get home, you'll still bring your work home with you. Completely understand overtime on occasion, but your time simply isn't valued as an employee.
-Plans hardly stay steady - expect to usually completely change direction with any project or task you're working on. Key phrases Wodify will use like "staying agile" really seems implied to mean something else...
-No training with a "trial by fire"/"thrown to the wolves" mentality.
-No room for growth or advancement.
-No HR department.
-Management isn't open to criticism.
-Lack of transparency between among departments and management.
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 you've always done something one way for a while and it's your gut feeling, doesn't mean it works.
As far as these "A players" would be concerned that you pride yourself with, either use them or stop hiring them. It's a shame the amount of talent in this company that get squandered by poor planning and poor decision making.
By the way, stop being concerned with the "who" of these kinds of reviews. Learn, grow, and progress.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wodify (Cherry Hill, NJ (US)) in April-2017.
The interview process is extensive for this company. I had a phone screen with a recruiter, skype call with recruiter, was invited to fill out the company's online forms, first call with the office manager approx 1 hour, then finally the in person interview. The in person interview was extremely long. They had me take 4 tests (personality, reasoning, computer aptitude, and a writing sample (approx 75min allotted but I finished in 40 minutes so just had to wait). Finally, met with the CEO and VP of Marketing and Operations which was approximately 3 hours long.
