    Pros

    Willingness to embrace new technologies and creative solutions.
    Fantastic new office in Central Manchester.
    Talented and friendly team.

    Cons

    Can be duplication of effort between competing engineers in different teams.
    A hint of 'too many cooks' about some of the development/testing processes.

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

    Pros

    - Solid, forward-thinking management. In Manchester I felt they were very approachable and offered me a lot of guidance which was helpful as one of the younger employees.
    - Modern development approaches, feedback is taken seriously and people are adaptive.
    - As a developer I found the codebase and general approaches to be very nice to work with, the in-house framework in particular is very impressive.
    - The Manchester branch is new and growing, lots of fresh faces and motivation- good atmosphere.
    - Saw quite a few people move or be encouraged to move up the ladder during my time there.

    Cons

    No big issues with the job, was there just over nine months and I left to move back down south. The area is a bit pricey so you may need to commute.

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

    Pros

    Staff canteen
    Good betting tips from colleagues in trading
    Double time on bank holidays
    Clean office
    Close to bus stop

    Cons

    Poor department management
    Low pay
    High call volume, rarely time between calls die to being understaffed constantly
    1 weekend off out of 4
    10 hour weekend days
    Little chance of progressing in the company
    People tend to be singled out by the mgmt in the department.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff better, please.

    The morale of the department is at an all time low, we are doing the work of two people most of the time (verification tasks and completing the telebet calls) and yet being paid bottom dollar in the company.

    Would I recommend bet365 as an employer to my friends and family based on my experience? No.
