    Plus other benefits which were recently introduced.

    - Good working relationships with other teams
    - Approachable staff
    - Management which will always listen to your problems, an open door policy even if they cant always resolve you will be listened to.

    The company has gone Strength to Strength over the years and is always improving its working conditions for staff, couldn't imagine working at any other place at this moment in time.

    Cons

    - You need to be here for 8am to get a Parking Space if you start at 9am (Although the company doesn't have to provide parking)
    - Inadequate amount of toilets for the number of staff in Stoke office.
    - Feels like the teams have enough staff to make the teams the best they can be.
    - Bonus figures are provided in 1-2-1 meetings without being prior discussed with staff.
    - Lack of PDP for Staff
    - Lack of Training & Courses

    Advice to Management

    - Keep your staff well informed at all times dont stay in the secret squirrel society
    - Take an Interest in what the teams are actually doing or currently working on
    - When concerns are brought to the table take them on board, dont say "I will get back to you" and then never do.
    - Do not set unrealistic targets for your teams without properly discussing potential problems with the actual team undertaking the work.

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

    Pros

    Other than the food in canteen, Costa coffee machine and nice people in certain teams there’s nothing else unfortunately which is ashame.

    Cons

    Extremely lonely place
    Management have no desire to look after their long serving staff
    If you don’t fit the mould you won’t get a promotion
    Extremely regimental
    Not treated like an adult
    Your just a number that can be replaced
    Recruit clicky people who are extremely judgmental and far from approachable.

    Advice to Management

    Get some balls and address staff issues!
    Look after your staff
    We are all human so stop treating people like they are dogs being let out of their kennel and shoved back in again.
    Provide clear development plans
    Stop handing out capability and disciplinary like it’s sweets! People can be poorly and late as long as they show they work hard stop punishing the ones that actually work hard.
