    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of overtime
    relaxed if working in a quiet store

    Cons

    Very long working hours hardly ever closed
    Job is not secure

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try refraining from encouraging and pressuring staff to encourage gambling in vulnerable individuals whom clearly live in financial strain. The company pushes staff too hard to sell a bad habit. Can affect mental wellbeing when at work.

    Decreasing salary ( everyone who started before you is on a higher salary and everyone who starts after you is on a lower one..and even lower)

    No great learnrning

    Advice to Management

    Some great managers out there but after the merger, it went downhill.
