Pros

Betfair is by far the best place I've ever worked for. There's a lot of opportunity to learn new things and the compensation is competitive. The people are very professional and management is on top of things. You should try to work here... if you can get in lol

Cons

Management was trying to hire very rapidly and in the process they hired a few bad apples, but these people didn't last, you have to know your stuff to be last here.

Advice to Management

Hire people on a contract-to-hire basis so you can get rid of them quickly if it don't work out. Don't hire FTE off the bat.

    Pros

    The company is growing fast in San Francisco, picking up more and more talented people. It is a good chance to work with a company that has the look and feel of a start- up with international a foot print.
    Betfair has a great product and will change to face to the betting industry in the US.

    Cons

    As like many fast growing technology companies some of the managers needs some work on the basic skills of managing people.

  2. Great opportunity for growth and challenge while at the same time making a difference with an exciting mission

    Pros

    Openness, willingness to do the right thing, challenge, mission, scale, experience, people, excitement. It's got good bones and huge potential.

    Cons

    Company has grown very quickly and it needs to rationalise performance levels across the group

    Advice to Management

    Some of the easy things are too hard - we need more of the basics polished.
