    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits- What I earned and for where I was based in the country was fair. Was in line with my colleagues based elsewhere and given all the right equipment and fully reimbursed for expenses "Unlimited holiday" if you can work it out. My employment ended mid holiday form when I had it booked. I was due to go over the statutory but ended up half a day under. Relaxed atmosphere- from the limited amount of time i spent at head office it seemed like a great working culture and an active in company community. I got on with almost everyone working there. Fun- I got to work in my hobby

    Cons

    Performance reviews could be imporved- There is obviously a top down structure but my experience of it through my line manager was a bit rushed and not really followed through on. I was working remotely however Communication to staff- My major issue is that many management discussions never filtered through. In the end my role was understandably made redundant but it could have been communicated a bit better. We were given a 5 days notice of a compulsory meeting and then put on risk of redundancy for 28 days to find something else. I was encouraged to apply for other roles but couldn't find something suitable in that time. I was strongly encouraged to apply to a role I wasn't qualified for and another where the interview felt a bit arbitrary.
