    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    - top company in interesting industry - above average pay and incentive/bonus program - stock options - good benefits of a mature company - learning curve for employees - international company, so travel involved - referral program

    Cons

    - long working hours - a bit process-heavy - make stakeholders in some positions

    Pros

    Good chance to improve your language skills and earn good money without stressing with too much responsibility. The team is young and fun. The operations and internal procedures are on pretty good level.

    Cons

    The essence of the job is not very challenging and motivating. After a while it becomes monotonous. You have to be ready to do shifts if you are in the Sofia office.

    Pros

    International environment, experience with different cultures, many career opportunities not matter the previous education

    Cons

    akward mixtures of too much and not enough processes, partly still two companies with different approaches, sometimes decision taking is too slow or do not happen at all

    Fantastic pre-merger. Post, it felt like being part of a funeral dirge.

    Pros

    Depending on where you worked, the facilities were excellent (Vienna, Stockholm), and the company actively tried to ensure that a positive social environment was maintained.

    Cons

    Post-merger, you were a second-class employee if you came from bwin; the business is run by the former PartyGaming management.

    Advice to Management

    Creativity and innovation are stifled when workers feel threatened; running a successful company is about more than short-term profits through deep cost-cutting. There's a real danger of throwing the baby out with the bath-water.
