Friendly, rewarding, and easy-going environment with an awesome cast of characters to come to work with each day. Success is based on how much work you're willing to put in. Management are very helpful and want the employees to feel comfortable and motivated. Great work-life balance.
There are truly not any significant cons I can remember from my three month experience interning at DraftKings. Only possible negative is a little too much goofing around and distractions with TVs on the walls and a ping-pong table in the middle of the office. Not necessarily a negative for some people! But when push comes to shove, people will work hard and produce results.
Advice to Management
Don't change your ways. Great management style and leadership.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DraftKings (New York, NY) in March 2015.
The worst hiring process ever. Interviewed with an internal company recruiter who lowballed me with their salary expectations, after I said I'd like to learn more about the job and continue with the process, the hiring manager passed on me without even meeting me. They oversell the company and want you to drink the kool-aid from day 1. I had to read various articles over a weekend before telling the internal recruiter I like what I saw and to pass my info to the hiring manager for the next step. They wanted somebody with a CS degree to begin with and am a self-taught developer, so why put me through the phone screen at all?! I highly discourage any type of developer to apply.
