I worked at Betfair full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

HQ location is good and the company still has a few knowledgable people. For many years the company employed people with the correct profile now, its just anyone with a bit of enthusiam.

Cons

Company has gone backwards since new maagement has taken over (basically since it went from being a IT based company to a spnortbook).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It might be too late but the employees make the company.

    I worked at Betfair full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Betfair are not afraid to embrace new technologies and processes. sometimes they make mistakes, but that's how you move forward. I've worked with brilliant people there and learned a lot.

    Cons

    Sometimes the life at Betfair was too chaotic. Some projects had unrealistic timelines that led to long hours and really was affecting my work-life balance. Too many re-orgs.
