    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things about working at SBG is the culture; it is very laid back with casual dress, flexible working hours and we are very social. The flexible working hours mean my work/life balance is better than it has ever been by far as it allows me to avoid a longer commute at rush hour. I love how social the business is too - we have regular social events as a team and also have bigger company-wide events like the races, charity ball and the gathering.
    SBG also has a great benefits package which includes a free gym membership at a gym across the road. This means I can exercise on my lunch break and therefore have more time to relax at home in the evening.
    Finally, SBG have really good opportunities for growth and personal development. Hard work is recognised and rewarded and there are loads of opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    There really aren't many downsides to working at SBG, although sometimes it feels like tech employees get preferential treatment over non-techies! For example the extra benefits they are entitled to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change much! Be aware of preserving our culture as we continue to grow and ensure everyone is treated fairly.

    Pros

    The culture allows you to be yourself in work without worrying about judgement. It's a very supportive environment that want to help build and develop you and your role.

    Cons

    There is a feeling of uncertainty at times and therefore could benefit from more transparency from the top down.

    Pros

    The culture has to be the best I’ve ever worked in, the company reward you for the hard work you put in. Benefits are great for the staff (even small perks like getting ice cream delivered to the office!) Projects are fast paced to match the environment, it’s a great place to work.

    Cons

    There really aren’t any at all!
