Beneficial for short term finance boost

Dealer (Former Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I worked at Paddy Power

ProsMoney is better than rival companies. Although recently due to the competition paying much less they've dropped their rates so not as good as before.

ConsIt's not what you know, it's who you know. Advancing up the ladder requires a level of skill in being seen as a sap and making friends with them too. If you don't get on with everyone higher up or aren't as moronic then you'll be stabbed in the back.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting friends and family, promote based on skill and business power, rather than personal relationships. Even if you don't get on with someone, they're a lot more beneficial than promoting a friend who you've to defend, to everyone, all the time, and eventually gets put back down.....just for example. ;)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
