    Pros

    The people are friendly and are willing to help others to be successful as well.

    Cons

    Due to the chaos (like any other start-up environment), getting some answers to issues are a bit delayed at times....but will be received evidently.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
