I have been working at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Interesting and complex technical challenges
- Good opportunities to learn for people earlier in their careers
- Good career ladder into management

Cons

- Feels like there's a glass ceiling beyond a certain point unless you want to go into management
- Often feels like we're trying to move in too many directions at once
- The company is trying to be a bigger company than it needs to be - feels like there are too many distracting HR fads (e.g. engagement surveys).

Advice to Management

Ditch the management fads, especially meaningless engagement surveys, that detract from getting good product out of the door.
