    I have been working at FanDuel full-time

    Pros

    Work from home, friendly people, lots of opportunities to work across departments

    Cons

    All companies have their flaws. FanDuel is certainly not an exception. Biggest con at the moment is an overly negative employee base.

    I worked at FanDuel full-time

    Pros

    Was really a great place to work until all of the legal stuff. So many rounds of lay-offs. Failed mergers and uncertainty from leadership about direction of company. Really kind of sad because they were in a great position to dominate the space but totally blew it with zero product innovations and hubris. The culture was really great for a while until some very poor hires at the top level. Really a textbook cautionary tale of success.

    Cons

    So many bad deals with team partnerships and vanity hires. Wasted an incredible amount of money on absurd projects like "FanDuel TV" --seemed like everyone was a VP at one point.

    Advice to Management

    Salvage what you can I suppose.

    I worked at FanDuel (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, robust vacation policy, fully covered medical, dental covers adult braces.

    Cons

    The industry as a whole is shaky right now and there's been several rounds of RIF. Senior leadership is flipping over right now.

    Pros

    Relaxed Environment, nice mostly young people, you have easy access to higher up management and can make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Overall feeling of cynicism and negativity from a lot of employees (granted they have seen a lot of layoffs, etc). A lot of talk and not so much action from the company for making changed.

    Pros

    Great mentorship and tech skill development in a very modern tech company.

    Cons

    Underpaid versus market avg because of the WFH benefits and other office amenities.

    Extremely hard to move around internally as things are slow to move.

    Pros

    Benefits are hands down the best I’ve ever had and the people are great. Flexible work hours are beneficial when you’ve got things to take care of.

    Cons

    Not much structure and things can tend to happen very last minute but such is life in a startup. If you’re the kind of person that isn’t much of a self starter this probably isn’t the place for you.

    Pros

    Great industry, great culture, great people. Not much more you can ask for. Love coming to work every day.

    Cons

    Could probably make more money somewhere else but the work atmosphere, culture, and unlimited time off make up for that in my mind

    Pros

    Great environment, coworkers are all passionate about their job and the company, you can work from home.

    Cons

    Can be a bit repetitive, but overall nothing major.

    Pros

    Great company atmosphere and everyone is always willing to help you improve. Also, a lot of opportunity to move up in the company if you put in the work.

    Cons

    Turnover is high as in any customer support job. Therefore, you must make sure to keep your customer service at a premium at all times.

    Pros

    Very laid back environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    A lot of departments have no idea what the others are doing. Minimal interaction between departments.

    Pay is very low and only 10% max increase on salary once a year subject to manager review. No bonus, commissions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Offer bonus/commissions to make employees work harder.
