    Pros

    Flexible working makes life much easier
    Benefits package is really good
    I think SBG is a great place to work, they do loads for their staff from exciting competitions to team trips to the races! It's a great environment to work in and extremely fast paced.

    Cons

    Parking isn't ideal, it's limited and quite expensive.

    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at SB&G for just over a year now, and after a difficult start, I'm really enjoying my working life now. I work in International and last year we had a completely different set up. We had this big team in Italy, and although they were trying to make the right decisions, there was this big disconnect between the offices. There was little understanding of the key company goals, and little planning and strategy. Since the summer, however, there have been several changes at the top, and a more structured and inclusive team unit. We all now know what we're striving for and we're all pulling in the same direction - that is those in Leeds, Sheffield and Rome! And it's having a marked difference too. We're seeing real growth in our business - across all products. We're finally moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Shame the changes were not made sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Keep positive, keep the energy up, and we will continue to succeed

    Pros

    People, culture and the job is interesting. Management are very approachable and socials are good fun. Pay is decent especially the bonuses and if you work in tech. Internal moves are pushed and mobility is actively encouraged.

    Cons

    Some of processes are fairly manual and could do with investment. More focus on generating development ideas for process improvements from people who do them day in day out is probably required

    Advice to Management

    Focus on putting the customer at the centre of everything that we do
