      Fantastic Company So Far! (Graduate)

      Pros

      One of the key differences that I’ve clearly noticed is the respect you get from your peers and managers in the office. Colleagues support you and don’t mind you asking them any sorts of questions that you think are silly. They clearly understand that by asking questions, you will learn the ropes much more easily. Although in University you would get support, this would primarily only be during the lecturer’s office hours, whereas everyone at work has a fantastic knowledge and are fine for you to ask them anything, anytime. It was evident straight away that bet365 want me to continue learning. I honestly feel like I’m back at University sometimes with the amount of learning I’m actually doing. Senior members would give lessons using real world examples from bet365, which is fascinating and a great way to teach using the bet365 infrastructure. As well as this, a free subscription to Pluralsight is also given to us to allow us to learn, as well as encourage self-learning when there is not much work to do. I am also being sent on a range of third-party courses all arranged from bet365. This is a fantastic commitment and investment into me, which I greatly appreciate. I feel highly valued and an important cog in the team, despite only being here for 2 months. The amount of time, money and resources that have been used on me so far is fantastic. I also have weekly one-to-one meetings with my manager where we discuss what I’ve done in that week, and also about how I am doing as a whole. This is great because it promotes a strong relationship with the manager, which makes coming to work that much better. I’ve worked part-time jobs during University where the managers only cared about meeting sales figures, whereas bet365 clearly value and respect their staff.

      Cons

      Quite long working hours but I'm use to this from University. Coronavirus had meant that I had to onboard from home. However, they sent me a laptop and all the equipment that I need Not really that many cons!

      Middle management. Parking. Working hours. Politics. Nepotism is rife. Industry impact on society. Lack of duty of care towards staff. Each department is a Silo. No meritocracy.

      Pros

      - The potential for career progression if you work hard, and the salaries were quite good, based on the location of the company. - Working with some talented harding working individuals.

      Cons

      - Company culture could be better, the majority of management and staff work in fear. - Office location, the office is in Stoke-on-Trent, it's ok but it means that the company struggles to recruit. - Working hours, the expectation is to work through lunch breaks and late.

      Pros

      Salary is relatively competitive for the area

      Cons

      Codebase antiquated. Test coverage minimal. Development methodologies haphazard. Working environment appalling. Working hours demanded far exceeded contracted hours. Line management naive. Company culture fearful and blaming. Forelock-tugging deference to the Coates family toe-curlingly embarrassing. This company's market position is easily assailable and it isn't in a position to fight back.
