    I worked at Bet365 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary for the location, good team, free tea and coffee brought to your desk. Good bonus potential. Comprehensive training.

    Cons

    Rotas can often lead to working 10 hour shifts back to back on weekends, and also can end up working 10 days straight. Promotions work on a 'who you know' basis

    I worked at Bet365 (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Being able to have 4 days off together every 5 weeks.
    * As it's a big company - many chances for development.

    Cons

    * The atmosphere can be very stressful, so it's not for the faint hearted.
    * 5/7 shifts can mean anything, even split days off.

    Advice to Management

    * Allow the staff greater freedom with arranging their own rotas, one swap a month is not enough.

    Modern offices with great views of Manchester.

    Open-door policy of senior management.
    Opportunity to work with very smart people on a varied tech-stack.

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work in the European CS department where the salaries are higher than avarage. The salary is pretty good for the town and you can a support a nice standard of living. Loads of premium rates and quarterly bonuses as well.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for upward career progression but plenty of other departments to go to.

    Advice to Management

    People have personal lives. The rota needs to be more flexible.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity for those who have desire and passion. People should look at the long game and figure out what is required to progress, e.g so many different departments within the company to progress into.
    Good benefits - company contribution, subsidised food in staff canteen, bike benefits, bonus opportunities and numerous other benefits depending on position.
    Ability to demonstrate initiative and have opinions listened to.
    Strong business, continual growth year on year.
    Like any progressive, successful private company, expectations and demands are high. But anyone prepared to work hard and be flexible will enjoy a successful career.
    Fair pay, especially for Staffordshire. Regular annual company pay increase every year so far.

    Cons

    Many positions require rota availabiliy with any 5 days from 7 so will not suit everyone. However, this is no different to the retail and leisure sectors; hence the name of the company.
    Modern brand new office building still has same old air conditioning problems where some people freeze while others melt. Must be the nature of the beast with office air con.
