I worked at Betfair full-time (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.
