      Pros

      Great people to work with, extremely smart and find solutions quickly, good processes and good benefits for employees

      Cons

      A lot of politics, same people keep in getting promoted based on relationships and not achievements, glass ceilings. You would put your heart and soul and it will get unnoticed. Very volatile, constant changes in structure and uncertainties

      Pros

      - Great people to work with and you're able to learn a lot from the role.

      Cons

      - Not many that comes to mind. Perhaps a repetitiveness of the role

      Not Worth It

      Oct 12, 2018 - Manager in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Pay. Some great people work here but they are in the minority and rarely stay for any length of time.

      Cons

      Extremely long hours, unreasonable expectations and total blame culture. Senior Directors generally react badly to any negative feedback and will see it as a challenge to their authority. You will be promised things they have no intention on delivering. 'Culture' and 'Values' are cosmetic and wont resemble the experience you have working here. Staff turnover is high which is not surprising. Agreeing with bad ideas without question is seen as good behaviour.

      Pros

      Some great people, some great innovation

      Pros

      Great office, great people and great friends made. The graduate programme is well respected throughout Ireland.

      Cons

      Traffic driving to work, graduate opportunities suffered during the PP and Betfair merger resulting in people leaving. The employee turnover is quite high.

      Best Job I've ever had

      Pros

      Fast-paced environment, constant changes, great people and opportunity to grow. Can watch Sport all day!

      Cons

      The merger has bought a lot of disruptions as expected, but I believe there are clear goals and visions that we are all working towards and it's really exciting to be part of 2 great brands integrating. It's sometimes too quiet in the offices especially Hammersmith but there are plans in place to improve the atmosphere.

      Great people, interesting environment but lack of support

      Pros

      The place used to be full of great people, many who actually knew what they were talking about. The environment was dotted with breakout areas and bean bags to encourage collaboration and people genuinely got on.

      Cons

      Unnecessary layers of management and political turf wars often let down the people on the ground
