    I have been working at Bet365 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary for area, lovely working environment, free gym. Great experience using the latest technology.

    Cons

    Team Leaders clearly not qualified or able to cope with the role, with training courses being provided for them only recently in order for them to handle the simple day-to-day tasks.

    Very top-heavy structure with hardly any engineers and far too many senior engineers, managers and team leaders. No room for growth any more despite more staff being looked for and desks already shrinking in order to fit people in.

    Ridiculous parking situation means you need to add another hour or two to your day in order to secure a space and queue to get out. Far too many people, not enough space anywhere.

    Feedback on issues ignored, preferential treatment given to some staff, 30 minute lunch break, no flexibility in working hours. A heavy focus on your failures and a complete ignorance on any achievements you have made.

    No work life balance. Treated like a number. Expect to get there at 8AM to park and leave after 6PM with just 30 minutes break.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes. You are ignoring and demotivating very talented staff whilst rewarding and promoting people who are incapable. Stop promoting those who are friends with management.

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

    Pros

    I worked in the testing department which is ran on scripts .. you do not need to use your brain just follow the scripts you will be timed on how fast you complete the regression pack and if you do not complete it fast enough it becomes a "can you do your job" kind of conversation. Many people from the team have migrated from the business with no technical knowledge so they follow these scripts merrily

    Cons

    Expect to be ridiculed in front of others, don't talk to a developer .. this is not allowed you will obey.. one of the worst testing teams I have ever worked with the managers are awful I was in members so not sure what the other side was like but the stepfords managing the members are going to make your boots shake

    Advice to Management

    Why?
    Why can't you talk to the lady who owns bet 365 when you see her? Hello ?
    Why can't you talk to developers
    Why do you not know till 530 you are needed to work late ?
    Why treated like children on the test team ?

    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

    Pros

    fast paced and dynamic company to work for, recently improved benefits packages available to all levels within IT, plenty of internal or self paced web based learning.

    Cons

    could do with more external technology training, external team building days to get everyone involved

    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.
