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

    Pros

    Have been at Gamesys just under a year and am so far loving it! Great team with a great culture and can really tell that everyone are really trying to push the company forward. There's an entire team dedicated to learning and development, as well as great parties and 5:30pm drinks on a Friday. Also loads of social clubs so there's something for everyone. Think below reviews are unfair, and whilst every company has...

    Cons

    Priorities can sometimes be changed and this isn't always communicated as promptly as I would like.

    I worked at Gamesys full-time

    Pros

    - Super location - Friday drinks - Fair effort from facilities to organise enjoyable events - Efficient IT support - Currently improving the benefit packages to be inline with the market

    Cons

    - Unskilled management and people in key roles - Unfair career progressions - Taking forever to complete anything - Lack of any good practise - Behind the current market in terms of knowledge and procedures - Far away from being ONE TEAM: everyone is divided into small teams or even smaller subteams in some cases, each of which is pretty much independent with very limited interactions. For this reason it's hard and...

    Advice to Management

    Actually, advice to directors and HR: find a way to get direct feedbacks from employees since they might have issues with their managers and they don't what to do but to leave. It's a shame since the Company undoubtedly has a huge potential ...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Gamesys

    Pros

    Amazing Location Parties (like most of other companies but worth to named them)

    Cons

    Since the former CEO left, Gamesys values have disappeared. No one cares about the employees (despite they “pretend” they do) Massive lack of organisation. Zero career progression (they perfectly know this and they still promote the same people) Really low salaries. Discrimination. If you don’t care any of these points, join them!

    Advice to Management

    Don’t think any recommendations will be heard as they know perfectly what is going on but they simply don’t care. They have full pockets already and the rest is not important. I only would say: Good luck, as you will need it.

    I worked at Gamesys full-time

    Pros

    Subsidized gym, free soft drinks and fresh fruit delivered daily, beer/wine/spirits on Fridays, great Christmas and summer parties, private healthcare and a lot more.

    Cons

    If you happen to work in a team that's not autonomous, you might find it a bit slow and cumbersome to collaborate with other teams.
