    I have been working at Unibet full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Unibet managed to become one of the fastest developed companies in the industry within the last 3 years (check the stock price the last 3 yrs) . They are not afraid to invest in their employees and they offer many career development opportunities to those who are trully passionate in their job duties.

    -The salary working as a Customer Service Agent is among the best in the industry and they offer plenty of benefits (yearly paid health insurance, yearly paid gym, plenty of discounts and more)

    -Managerial staff is friendly and easy to approach but this is of course something subjective for most of us.

    Cons

    -Workspace needs minor improvements in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing specific to add here. Just keep up the good work!

    I worked at Unibet full-time

    Pros

    People are young so feel like a bit of a doss house.

    Cons

    Leadership is weak. If it were not, many people would have gone already. Some people in high positions simply do not understand their area of work. And unfortunately, as said, there was a culture of bullying. People there know about it, but refuse to say anything, mainly through fear of losing their jobs. What is worse is that it appears to rub off on others within the team. Accounting, legal, HR, relationship management, lots of people leave and no one seems to ask the obvious question: why?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of those who have really put the company at risk; do not tolerate certain behaviours.

    Pros

    Good ability to make the job your own, great people, able to try new things, internal progression available. Good benefits. Interesting industry.

    Cons

    Very internationally focused so if you're not in core markets in can be hard to get noticed. Gambling not everyone's favourite industry, you can feel stigmatised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Perhaps make the UK and Malta offices as nice as Stockholm.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly and welcoming employees, variety of nationalities, a lot of social activities, laid-back environment, employees sporty and interested in sports, chances to progress internally

    Cons

    Level of pay at entry level, sometimes unorganised processes/projects, lack of communication within the company, internal career progress, very slow recruitment that pushes people to do multiple jobs for a long time, nothing in the company happens on time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you share the all the way from top to bottom, push for change, manage as you say you would in the company strategy, don't be too risk-averse.

    Pros

    I worked at Unibet for 1 year and early on there was definitely a culture where good work and loyalty was rewarded. It's slipped a bit as the company has growing pains. But it's still a better environment than some other betting companies.

    Cons

    Not quite the same after Petter left. Seems content to stay still and not power forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some real gems. Let them shine.

    I have been working at Unibet full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    it used to be nice working environment, the staff are friendly and majority loyal (apart from management who are quite the opposite). ok salary and good refer a friend scheme.

    Cons

    Management are clueless, do not have managerial background, are working backwards instead of forwards. Team leaders sit at desk all day and do not know how to manage you. they have no leadership quallities. Wall of shame for colleagues with are late a lot. No real career even if you have the good skills. It is who you know. If you are in with the senior management teams, you get what you want. if not you are ignored. No clear strategy, and no forward thinking. Projects take years to complete and the company has a lot of broken promises. head of customer service, is rude. unless she likes you then she doesnt look at you. very false and very gossip place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop ignoring things in front of you, move from your desk. stop changing scores to make things look good.

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

    Pros

    Some degree of freedom. Office is located in the centre of the city and they offer free beverages. Pay can be good. They offer some interesting technical challenges.

    Cons

    The company lacks a long term strategy to keep senior employees on board. Very dependent on external consultants. No company culture. No team spirit. Extremely lacking technical or corporate leadership. Reactive instead of proactive.

    I have been working at Unibet

    Pros

    Good opportunities, as organization lacks smart people that act strategically.
    Plenty of freedom in your role unless your step into someone else's area.

    Cons

    No strategy, slow, to change. Clueless Sr management (no e-commerce or business development skills). No career progression unless you are a management trainee with political skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the right people on the bus. Promote people that drive change instead of firing them?
