What is the company culture like at Entain?

Pros

- So far, they have been committed to flexible working arrangements during COVID such as a few days working from home and the rest in the office

Cons

- Terrible working hours and lots of weekend work (every weekend for me) - Management puts a whole lot of unnecessary stress onto employees, employees have to work 100 times harder to make up for the poorly planned processes that were put in place by management - Bad culture where people are often rude and inconsiderate of others time and personal life - Management on several occasions asked me to do things which I consider legally and ethically questionable, when I brought this up with my manager they responded that they neither knew if what we had to do was following regulation nor did they care. - Management will often encourage everyone to take their leave in a group setting, but behind closed doors when it's just 1 on 1 I'd often be told not to take leave or discouraged from taking leave based on my manager's behaviour and their history of not approving leave even when enough notice is given - Very little to no training or support was given, had to figure out their convoluted and nonsensical processes myself as I carried out the tasks of my overcomplicated job - Very low retention rate from employees - Not much effort is put in retaining employees or improving work/life balance and company culture - Highly incapable managers from a people management perspective, most people that seem to stay here longer than a year or two are truly delusion as to what is considered normal for what an employer can and can't ask their employees to do.

Advice to Management

Be true to yourself about what type of workplace you want. In the interview they tried to pass this place off as a 'start up culture' with lots of social events, relaxed environment and friendly attitude with high employee retention. In reality it was a cold and abusive place, employees leaving or getting fired regularly, I rarely had lunch breaks, lots of overtime work with no recognition or time off in lieu being offered. There's plenty of people out there that wouldn't mind this environment and might even thrive on it - why bring people in that clearly aren't interested in being exploited and working 7 days a week is beyond me.

What is the hiring process like at Entain?

Pros

Most people and teams are really approachable and easy to talk to. This makes for a good working environment.

Cons

1. Strategy and vision changes all the time. You get hired to do something, and some time later you find out that the project you've been working on is going to be stopped, and things are going to go back to the way they were before. Waste of time! 2. You will get a decent pay if you're British born, especially if you're male. Otherwise, they'll try to get you at the cheapest rate they can, since they know salaries in the UK are higher than in other parts of Europe. For reference, me & my non British peers (same level) get paid between £10k - £22k less than my British peers. Coincidence you say?! 3. You will not get a pay rise (easily or at all) if you don't qualify for the above requirement (British born) or are part of the "boys club". I know of team members asking for pay rises one, two and three times and got told "not the right time" or "my hands are tied". Later to find out that they were replaced by people on higher salaries.... 4. Communication is not something the business knows what it is or how to do. Things happen and you find out through someone who told someone who told someone who told you. Come on! People are fired, people are hired, teams change, your role is going to change due to structure & vision changes - and nobody tells you! You know because you hear it somewhere. You can't do this to people - going through the whole process of hiring them while you know they're going to get sacked in 3/6 /12 months' time. This is not the behavior of a FTSE company. 5. Company perks? We get a crappy breakfast once a month (poor variety and not many GF options) and some cheap prosecco & beer on the last Friday of each month. Just wow. GVC's revenue is public information... But where is that money going? It must go into the pockets of the "boys club" because it surely is not invested in the people working hard to achieve that....

Advice to Management

1. Communication is key! Please talk to your people - there's nothing worse than finding things out through rumours, especially when they affect you or your team. 2. Practice what you preach! If you really want people to avoid biases and promote equality, have a look at who works in your company and the way to treat them. Stop internally promoting the "boys club" and ensure there is equal pay amongst same level employees, regardless of place of origin or gender.
