    I have been working at Bet365 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I came from a management background working in the food industry working from 6am till 2/3/4 the next morning. bet365 promotes more social hours, you don't work twilights or nights unless you request them and day staff do 8 hours a day between 7am and 11pm, although the latest you get out is maybe 9 or 10. If your hours do cut into your evening you get a pay enhancement, and same for a weekend. Lots of support is...

    Cons

    The vending machines are a nightmare, they should take card but the are used so much they often break or an item gets stuck, your money is returned to you if you chose to be petty over a pound. The food is often nice from the restaurant but can lack flavour or be dry. Nice variety, friendly staff, and it's discounted so the pros balance the cons on the food. Fridges are provided to keep your packed lunch in should you...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Stoke-on-Trent, England

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    * Decent money for the area * Good benefits for international employees * Friendly co-workers * Free coffee/tea (free, not necessarily good)

    Cons

    * A company built on mistrust, you are treated like a child with all the ridiculous employee guidelines * Absolutely useless company structure, lines of communication obfuscated by "the right procedures", higher management especially clueless

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working with super-smart, creative, passionate people who want to do the right thing; always solving a different problem rather than having a routine; having the ability to make a difference and see rapid results; working for a company actively committed to taking responsibility in the gambling sector. Exciting high volumes of traffic. A platform that on an average Saturday can experience more transactions than an...

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment that some people may struggle with if they like a lot of structure.

    Advice to Management

    The company has grown exponentially over the past few years; find a way to continue to scale the business, whilst maintaining the excellent culture. Keep the focus on responsible gambling and remain open and honest with the communication.

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good starting salary for most roles and most people receive a large pay raise after their probation or first year, which they give to you as an incentive to stay on Annual bonus of around 5% but put one toe out of line and this gets taken off you. Great for workaholics who want to be in fast paced teams, bet365 is full of people working 10 hour+ days Stable job as it is a big company, however recently lots of...

    Cons

    It has been said many times before but it is worth repeating, ALL OF THE POSITIVE REVIEWS ARE FAKE. These have all either been written by bet365s internal recruitment company in an attempt to cover up their well-known bad reputation, or by people in the above mentioned management and senior roles who are exempt from the strict office rules and spend all day in meetings so in reality have no clue about what the working...

    Advice to Management

    Because the gambling industry continues to grow, this is a company which makes so much profit that it doesn’t need to care about its individuals. As long as they continue to make a profit they will just keep throwing money into filling more seats and building bigger offices. They clearly have no intentions of changing the way their management operates, which makes the office environments miserable for the majority of...
