Strong product, interesting projects, but too many cooks at mid-management.

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Hammersmith, England (UK)

Pros* Love gambling? So does everyone else.
* Several satellite offices -- malta, dublin, gibraltar -- together with conference season, means that if you have the appetite for travel and regular social outings, you'll get this in a career with Betfair.
* You're never standing still, drama and change is always around the corner. For the good or bad.

Cons* Too many managers, not enough executors.
* "Flavour of the month initiatives" means considerable effort sunk into the whim of a director, that are quickly forgotten within the month, suck up everyones time and make zero impact on the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire the dinosaurs. Hire more Junior to Mid Execs to execute smaller relevant projects. Too many managers sitting around slides and discussing initiatives to death, that they don't have the capacity to execute.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
