    I have been working at DraftKings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally the perks are good, the salary is competitive, and the people are intelligent. It’s also nice to have a stable core product and new ones that seem very promising.

    Cons

    Much of the workforce is young and relatively inexperienced - lots of recent college grads. That can lead to newbie mistakes across the board. Jason is a fine CEO when addressing the details of running the business, but he has a tough time inspiring the workers. The company does reorgs relatively frequently, which don’t involve layoffs but do involve headaches and unknowns that impede effort. And it also isn’t sure what...

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to lead more from the front. Step into view more often by trusting and then praising good work - especially when grassroots ideas take hold. Stop with all the secrecy around org charts and reshuffles - it makes it harder to do our job. And hire some more seasoned talent across the company, not just at the top but in senior and lead positions, so their experience and context can help season our younger employees.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on challenging projects and learn a lot

    Cons

    * Micro-management by execs and Middle managers that stifles creativity and drive, leading employees to leave * Lack of employee recognition and empowerment * No long term vision and strategy

    Advice to Management

    Get employees' feedback on their managers, and adjust accordingly. Good employees leave because of bad managers.
