    I have been working at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting industry and good technology - some great people

    Cons

    Not recommended for project managers or programme managers. There is no PMO or central resource management - so you are at the mercy of the division you are hired within. Limited opportunity to move around and no clear career path or project management specific career development... fine if you are contracting however.
    New CEO is the Michael O'Leary of the gambling industry.... the cost cutting exercise is fairly ruthless. victims so far:
    Office Fruit
    All Staff Christmas Party
    Kids Christmas Party
    Free Racing Post
    Office plants!!
    Free hooded top for new starters passing their probation
    Staff joining anniversary lunches
    Online training portal
    Funding for clubs (running, cycling, wine clubs etc)
    Betfair used to be a really fun place to work - it was in the top ten places to work about 5/6 years ago (they tell you this when you apply to work there). It hasn't featured in the top 10 since, with good cause. The stock market float has changed the company dramatically.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting costs is important - but look at some of the big list items ahead of staff perks. People aren't drones - and its the small things that often drive engagement and motivation.

    I have been working at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the leading tech business based in Europe.
    Multinational business with leading positions in UK, Ireland and Australia.
    80% of the business is online, with half of that via mobile. Leading developer of mobile apps, e-commerce apps, online games, and more.
    A brand that makes people laugh, with products that make life more exciting for millions every week

    Cons

    In a sector that not everybody has a natural affinity for - betting - which suffers from middle class prejudice in Europe and is outright illegal in the USA
