I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Magnificent offices, a good, technology oriented company culture, dynamic, friendly, fun, not in the least boring. Good equilibrium work / life, culturally diverse, found a few new best friends there.

Cons

Upper management with no experience or flair to run an IT department. Junior staff thrown willy-nilly at jobs they're unable to perform at high standards, and the seniors are mostly there to clean the mess. Very cost-conscious, no pay hikes, tendency to outsource a lot; cliquey in some teams.

Advice to Management

Take more care of your senior staff, or they will eventually leave - and you need them.

    I have been working at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have to say that in Betfair the work environment is original, there are many smart people and most of the time the atmosfere is positive and professional.

    Cons

    The HR organisation is ineffective, redundant, antiquate and that reflects in staff being disillusioned about how the company operates internally. The company focuses more on cost cutting than growing its staff professionally, no career plans, low salaries means the best will leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real shake up into the HR, including compensation, talent management and career planning inside the company.
