Best job I’ve ever had

Recommends
Positive outlook

Pros

- BetterUp hires some of the most incredibly talented people I’ve ever worked with. The environment encourages you to learn and grow and get better at your job and I love that - Amazing benefits. Unlimited PTO, all federal holidays, inner work days, 2 week long paid company holidays during July 4th and Christmas, learning stipend, health and wellness reimbursement, WeWork membership etc. It’s the first place I’ve worked where I don’t feel guilty for taking time off because the environment encourages it. - Some consider this a con but the work is challenging. It’s not a sit back and relax work from home job. I think this is a pro. You work with some of the best and the mission is big, and it’s still a start up. You have to want the challenge to be happy here.

Cons

- A lot of change and turmoil over the last year or so. Changing departments, lay offs, changing leadership due to company restructure and macroeconomic climate. - There’s a lot of work to be done, it seems this is true no matter what role you hold. You have to hold strict boundaries for your personal time and when to log off. - No 401k match

We’re here to reach the whole world. Being inclusive and creating an authentic sense of belonging is central to our mission, not peripheral.

 

We need the real you to make a real impact — meaning we celebrate and recognize you for all aspects of your life journey. We are a diverse team with an ambition to help people flourish. This ambition for us starts internally. 

 

Some of our programs: 

  • Employee resource groups such as Black BetterUppers, BetterUnidos, BUtiful,  Women and Enbys, Shalom BetterUp, AAPI@BetterUp, Military Veterans@BetterUp, Divergent Talent, and more are in the process of forming! 
  •  The Pledge 1% movement: we donate 1% of our stock, employee time, product, and profit to our communities.
  • A research-driven approach to diversity, inclusion, and belonging 
  • Access to 1:1 unlimited coaching for all employees with specialists on topics such as DEI, inclusive leadership, grief, etc.

Careers & Benefits

Career-defining moments for those who step up to the challenge
We’re going to be honest — working here is intense. Fast-paced. And fulfilling. You’ll be pushed to do the best work of your life, alongside other teammates doing the same, all working toward our mission. We strive to make a positive impact and do something that’s never been done before — which takes grit and determination.

You’ll need to be agile,  leave your ego at the door, and be ready to rise to the occasion no matter the task at hand. We aim for greatness in all we do and create an environment where people are consistently pushing the limits of their craft.

This might not be for everyone (and that’s okay), but if breaking new ground excites you, we might be the perfect fit.
