    Pros

    The work is exciting and projects are forward thinking. Your personal input has an impact on the output of the company and that brings with it, high levels of responsibility. Good work is rewarded. Management supportive and my colleagues are a fantastic group of people. Highly competitive salary is the cherry on top.

    Cons

    Relying on trains! Not an issue if you live nearby or in Manchester itself. I made the conscious decision to not uproot my family and do the commute instead. If you can do that then there you shouldn't see many cons working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    People from around the world, that is what I like most.
    Good salary.

    Cons

    Once you start work here, everything seems so cool and looks amazing. Once you take off your pink glasses, you start realize how it really works. From what I have seen I can say that this is one of the worst places I have ever worked.

    If you want to succeed, the must is not to have values and morals. Just leave your brain, opinions and soul at home and be robot. Never show your humanism as it is undesirable (emotions, anger, dissapointment...) Just follow procedures. Very good thing is also to be friend with people at higher poisitions (even that you don't like them). Highly recommended! This is 100% way how to succeed. Don't expect equal treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote not clever and incapable people. For members of teams is very hard to respect those people.
