    Pros

    Great culture
    The employees consider each other friends and not just co-workers
    Room for growth
    Supportive team
    Dedicated managers
    Exciting work
    It's clear how you're contributing to the company's success

    Cons

    Don't expect to not work hard at Betts. People are passionate about their jobs which then lends to there not always being a work-life balance.
    Company is expanding quickly and naturally with that comes growing pains.

    Pros

    The culture is amazing - very high energy and collaborative. It is very fast-paced, which can be difficult at times, but your manager and coworkers are always there to help. There is also huge room for personal growth. If you want to transition to different roles within the company, you can do so very easily. I have nothing but positive things to say about Betts.

    Cons

    Heavy work load at times

    Pros

    --Working with incredible people. Everyone works really hard but knows when it's time to turn it off and have fun.
    --If you have an idea you can approach anyone (even the CEO) and present it.
    --Endless opportunity for growth. If you work hard it'll definitely pay off. I was only with the company a year and had the opportunity to be one of the first people to open the European Headquarters.
    --Incredible office (all the bells and whistles of your typical startup-- ping pong tables, shuffle board, bar, etc.) and so many fun perks (President's Club trips for top performers to Mexico, company wide wine tasting to Sonoma, Tahoe team bonding, spiffs for trips to Vegas, box seats at Giants' and 49ers' games, the list goes on.
    --Opportunity to build your network. Constant happy hours, meetings with CEO's, VP's, etc.
    --Amazing support system. No one wants you to fail. Everyone is always willing to help.

    Cons

    --This isn't somewhere you come to ride the wave and just coast. It can be a tough job at times. You have to be willing to put in the time if you want to be successful. Take occasional calls outside work hours, meet candidates after hours, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. As the company grows and scales into new markets it will be difficult to carry on the culture and values, do whatever it takes to do so because that's what makes this place really special.

    Pros

    Betts is a true startup, that works with some truly innovative companies. The culture at Betts is healthy and our approach to recruiting is refreshing given the general reputation of recruiters.

    Cons

    With our level of growth there have been many pains. Some have been addressed, but others have been neglected. Focus a bit more on structure and help define roles more clearly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the company's vision and keep focusing on culture/employee development.

    I have been working at Betts Recruiting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've worked at several best places to work in the Bay Area, and this one beats them all. BR is a small company, so there is room to grow if you want to stay at a company for a long time. Your coworkers and supportive and will help you through anything that you need. Management listens, and has even created training programs that weren't previously in place in response to employees.

    Cons

    It's a sales job, so it has its ups and downs
    If you're looking for a lot of hand-holding, this job is not for you
    if you want a job where you can surf the internet all day, and want to fly under the radar, this job is not for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire good people who are smart and motivated

    I worked at Betts Recruiting full-time

    Pros

    Some kind people
    Young culture
    Lots of Social Events

    Cons

    Long work hours
    Extremely unprofessional behavior by a boss (getting drunk and falling down at happy hours, mixing personal life (dating) with the office, screaming at people in front of others)
    No HR department means drinking before noon?
    Lots of people pitted against each other, or people being shunned by large groups
    People who are liked get rewarded more than people who work hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick people to be employees, not your friends.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded- they have uncapped commissions that directly reflect your hard work and success. Everyone has a voice in the company and the ability to build out their own business within the company. Such a fun team that is collaborative and supportive of each other. Carolyn is an incredible role model and leader who empowers all of her employees for success.

    Cons

    As the case with most startups, things change as they continue to discover best practices.
