I have been working at Betfair full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Deeply invested in agile processes. Some very good, capable people. Good work both within and between teams (for the most part).

Cons

Some weak individuals at surprisingly high levels for such a generally good company. Poor corporate structure for technology delivery, split between two CxO's.

    Pros

    The management team are so inept at Trading that you could tell them whatever you want and they'd believe you.

    Cons

    I think it was South Park that called someone a 'succubus' - a woman from hell sent to earth to suck the life out of you and spit you out. Something similar applies here to the Trading managers. Except you will get excreted on too. You will get run into the ground for little reward. If you show you are capable you are in trouble.

    I have been working at Betfair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Huge appetite to change and shrug off some of the complacency of the past. Recognition that it operates in an incredibly tough and competitive market, and that only the fittest will survive. Growing a culture of continuous improvement and excellence. Truly international company with an engaged workforce in London, Dublin, Portugal, Gibralta, Malta, Romania and the US, as well as many other locaitons.

    Cons

    There's so much to do that it is not easy to tell what is most important. Needs very clear direction from the top to make sure the right priorities are established.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the vision for the company with the employees in as much detail as possible. Don't assume they aren't interested - there is a real thirst to know how Betfair will win.
