    Communication from CEO level is quite good but from the levels below that it is virtually non-existent. Massively demotivating for staff

    I worked at Betfair full-time (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.

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
