I have been working at PartyGaming

Pros

PartyGaming has really supported my career development over the past few years and I have been given opportunities that I doubt would have been available to me at other companies - I have always received regular feedback from the management team on my performance and I have been able to really progress within my role/career here and I feel fairly rewarded - (promoted twice in the past 2.5 years).

Communication within the company has vastly improved over the past few years with regular communication from the exec team and local town hall meetings for business/company updates. There is even an open forum where I can ask a member of the exec team a question and they respond within a few days which - I am not aware of many companies that would provide this opportunity.

Overall engagement and atmosphere in the office is healthy and the recent bowling event was a great idea!

In summary I am happy at Party, I feel motivated in my role and supported by the company and I actually have recommended it as a good place to work to my friends.

Cons

Party can be very fast paced (which I personally find exciting) but may not suit everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only to continue with the current level of communications - this has been a great improvement and only have a positive impact.

    Pros

    I am puzzled at the comments on this site for PartyGaming. I am a senior manager in the london office also and have been for many years and thinks it's the best place I have ever worked.

    The pay and benefits are above market rate and the morale is good overall. The sense of team spirit here is also really good.

    This week we've even had bacon butties to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - these kinds of events are common and the management do a lot to make working life here good.

    I would definitely recommend PartyGaming as a great place to work and hope to stay here for many years more.

    Cons

    I haven't anything particular to say here other than all process can feel frustrating sometimes but all businesses have them with the aim of making things run more smoothly. PG is no different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep these great social events going. The HR policies, as with all companies have to be there. They just mean that managers need to follow some processes.

    I have been working at PartyGaming

    Pros

    online gaming is still a good business and this industry seems to pay above average

    Cons

    layoffs are a constant threat. Three major rounds of layoffs in the past two years, which corresponds to partygaming's revenue slide during this time. Partygaming's human resources department is despised throughout the company, for their silly time-consuming initiatives (the but of jokes among pg'ers) and policies that seem several decades out of date. The company's poor financial performance is probably just as much to blame for the general low level of morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't be afraid of change! If we keep going like we have been then we are in big trouble.
