    I have been working at betterworks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun collaborative culture and passionate about agile performance management and disrupting the traditional outdated performance review model. The company is growing fast and offers great opportunities to build best practices within functions and make a large impact. Everyone works hard and has fun doing it!

    Cons

    The pace is fast and you always have your foot on the gas. Sometimes you have to work with limited resources and do the best you can with what you have versus everything being 100% perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals and communicate often

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

    Pros

    The benefits are on par to similar saas companies. There are health benefits, free lunch and snacks, unlimited PTO and flexibility. Can be remote, or in the office at either RWC, Denver, or NY.

    Cons

    Definitely a few cons but this was a major CON! When first hired, being presented with an offer letter with agreed upon salary to later change it to hourly position felt humiliating and I totally got conned. The first pay check when changed from salary to hourly was humiliating and see it as a demotion.

    Advice to Management

    Even though there was an attempt to “explain” the reason for the salary change to hourly, it was a huge disappointment. Having to confirm if a check is accurate because a PTO was not entered or the hours don’t match, and that paycheck after paycheck, the amount is not the same is frustrating. This has disrupted my livelihood and is disheartening.
