Good place to work but the pay barely covers the mortgage.

Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat benefits
Friendly atmosphere
"Team oriented" is not an empty phrase
Good social environment
Decent work/life balance
For the social activist, pushes the limits of benefits and work environment for the gay community. (But there's speculation that Bettinger might start slowly changing this).

ConsHands out titles like loose change and pays about as much. Pay is below median.
Managers are uncommitted to the success of their employees. HIres too many temporary consultants who leave after a few months.
Work standards can be low and some people don't know how to use common applications. Some employees need help with basic Excel functions like lookups or adding columns.
Big hit to morale because of push to decentralize work from SF to Florida, Arizona, New Jersey, Denver, and other places.
For those interested in subjective rumors, Bettinger brings a culture of nepotism, conservatism, and ruthless bottom-line cost-cutting.

Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp pay policies and entitlements to titles.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's been great so far. Many people are from many different companies so CS is recruiting from the right companies!
