    I have been working at Paddy Power Betfair full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good rewards , good pay, training and development flexibility, team night outs , competitions, bonus, tips,discipline, approachable members of senior management

    Cons

    Long hours, too sales focused recently , need to appreciate staff a lot more especially when they have to cover or cancel plans for emergencies in the shop

    Advice to Management

    It is a customer service role, stop trying to make it so sales focused. Also after progression to shop manager there isn't much to do as most managers do not become district managers

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Pointless as no intention to change.
