    I have been working at Kambi full-time

    Pros

    It is a flexible working environment, depending on the team you’re in, you can get exposure to a range of different areas. People are cool and the atmosphere is very laid back. It’s a secure job where it is difficult to get fired from, you would have to do something incredibly stupid to get a warning.
    You can coast by and do no work for weeks or even months and nobody will notice. You can work from home and nobody will care, you can take as many days off as you want, nobody really checks.

    Cons

    Getting more responsibility does not translate to higher pay.
    People don’t care about the company, they care about themselves to get the biggest bonus(even though the bonus is small, roughly 2-4k), this creates divisions and people fighting against company goals. There isn’t an atmosphere of team work, and the company never gets anything done, with endless blue sky thinking meetings, only to realise it can’t be done when it gets to a point of no return.
    The pay is very low, on par with working at a place like Tescos.
    There is zero career development, no matter how junior you are, you will have to stay in that lane for the remainder of your time at Kambi or leave, at first it is exciting but after a couple of years of doing the same thing again and again it becomes soul destroying.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep staff, there is no career development, if you can’t pay them more, then train them up in skills to equip them for their next job.

    I worked at Kambi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with great people some of whom have incredible expertise. Great company culture and flexibility where appropriate (i.e. non-customer facing jobs, sufficient seniority). Great benefits.

    Cons

    Disconnect between upper management and operations which become evident in annual targets, reviews and company mandates. Non senior positions do not pay incredibly well and bonus schemes are opaque and slightly stingy. A lot of positions lack career development potential.

    Advice to Management

    Create better incentives for middle management and below to perform and be recognized.

    I have been working at Kambi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is unofficially run by Swedes, so everyone is inherently lazy and with a 'tomorrow is another day' attitude. So it's a good place if you want to coast through your career and not have to work too hard.

    Cons

    Not for ambitious or career orientated people, nothing gets done, lots of gossip and everyone plays the 'blame game'.

    Advice to Management

    n/a
