    I worked at Wodify full-time

    Pros

    Good colleagues. Good offices. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of management vision. Those in charge are not always honest and it creates an instability vibe around the office. The company culture is most of the time used against the employees to show some morality that is not real.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Good salary, good conditions, good co-workers, fantastic offices.

    Cons

    Initially the company seems like a dream of a place, with all the good conditions and spaces. She suffered a bad time and became obsessed with forcibly creating a culture and forcing employees to live it. Not all people felt good and some ended up leaving. Every day or almost all, they make you feel special, that you are part of the company but from one moment to the next they decided to dismiss everyone from an office for no apparent reason. They claimed that it was to avoid bankruptcy and were never transparent in that regard, they never previously warned of the company's situation. The great defect of this company is the strong intervention of the CEO who ends up interfering in everything and always making decisions and not trusting his employees.

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

    Pros

    Great salary, cool office, great benefits. People who don't report to the CEO are very pleasant, talented people to work with.

    Cons

    The CEO will make your life at wodify a living hell. He likes to fire people on a whim, verbally goes off on people without warning, and worst of all he has unclear and changing expectations of everything from project goals to when people return from vacations. I have seen people fired for not returning mid-vacation for something that was far from an emergency, just to give you an example. If you don't trust my single review, I get it - read the previous reviews while ignoring the short, glowing reviews of the company with very little specifics all written with a day of each other. The CEO has demanded these fake reviews periodically from employees to artificially boost their numbers ... do your due diligence before joining this company and read through some of them.

    I worked at Wodify

    Pros

    I’ve worked at Wodify in the past, and it was an amazing experience that really allowed me to grow as a professional, make part of nice team, the office was very central, clean, and a pleasant place to work, with all the necessary tools available for the employees. I’m really thankful for the opportunity. 

    Cons

    However, I was fired due to a restructuring in the company, what I completely understand, despite the fact that the restructuring wasn’t made in the best way, since the Marketing Team on PT Office has no importance for the business or the company's growth, systematically developing a dubious work with little added value for the team or company. What Wodify needed the most was a competent and vast team of capable engineers, not to maintain a doubtfully necessary Marketing Team that apparently only suits to waste company’s resources.

    Pros

    Great group of colleagues; Salary isn't bad; Good team environment; Benefits are good; Relaxed dress code; Paid on time.

    Cons

    The job instability (you never know if tomorrow you will work there), you can't do anything wrong... Lack of focus from the management. We didn't had a HR. Too much gossip..

    Pros

    * The office and job perks are great. * Above market salary (in Portugal). * Rewarding work - one person can make an impact. * Product has lots of potential. * Very friendly colleagues. * Impeccable on-boarding and off-boarding.

    Cons

    * Management is somewhat inexperienced, which leads to sometimes incoherent goals, incoherent decisions and lack of long term vision. * The company is chronically understaffed. * Shareholders are unwilling to accept investment, which means the vested shares employees get are meaningless and that the company is very vulnerable to its competitors that are getting large investments.
