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

Pros

Huge appetite to change and shrug off some of the complacency of the past. Recognition that it operates in an incredibly tough and competitive market, and that only the fittest will survive. Growing a culture of continuous improvement and excellence. Truly international company with an engaged workforce in London, Dublin, Portugal, Gibralta, Malta, Romania and the US, as well as many other locaitons.

Cons

There's so much to do that it is not easy to tell what is most important. Needs very clear direction from the top to make sure the right priorities are established.

Advice to Management

Continue to share the vision for the company with the employees in as much detail as possible. Don't assume they aren't interested - there is a real thirst to know how Betfair will win.

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

    Pros

    Your next job will seem like a breeze.

    Cons

    Top heavy. No organisation or structure had three team changes in 4 months. A lot of bullying and back stabbing. Expected to work crazy hours for minimal reward. Turnover of staff is ridiculously high. The whole fun place to work is a complete joke, especially when your manager is harassing you at night and days off with emails and phone calls. Pity I seen the ladder for growth get taken up the minute you join. The product they offer is below par against any of the main players.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat and stop looking down your noses a the people on the frontline.
