    I have been working at Paddy Power full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for strong performers. They always look to hire internally where possible. Successful company with good eye on staff morale. Nice office in a good location

    Cons

    You do have to work hard. You won't get paid for things like overtime and you will be expected to go the extra mile sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonus multipliers should be more extreme

    I worked at Paddy Power full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent salary! However in interview you are promised the sun, moon and stars! This does not happen!

    Cons

    They seem to just want to train monkeys to do jobs and once you want to have an input or try improve things, managers quickly clip your wings in fear of you being better than them! No room for progression! No ethics at all! I've never worked somewhere that has made me question something I love doing! My advice- get in and get it on your cv as agencies and recruiters seem to love pp, then get the hell out before you resent your job and yourself for putting up with it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete overhaul needed for middle management! Most have just inherited their positions through length of service and don't really have a clue! Oh and stop being such bullies!

    Pros

    Betting company doing well; lots of responsibility; plenty of time in the field in Ops; decent money

    Cons

    Betting industry; high staff churn; dog eat dog; harsh environment; lack of resouces; industry becoming increasingly regulated and no doubt shrinking in size so what will the future hold; poor work life balance

    To treat staff fairer and consider their needs as well as to give them the tools they need to do their job

    I worked at Paddy Power full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, made a lot of friends there. Good facilities in building and good location to home for me. Opportunities to move to different departments in the company.

    Cons

    I was on a small team that had to deal with a massive workload and management were very slow to hire any new people.

    Dealing with probably the worst customer base in the world and this on top of the above mentioned workload made it very stressful.

    Working night shifts felt like we were forgotten about by the rest of the company.
