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

    Pros

    Fellow Staff are fairly sound

    Cons

    Overworked, working until 11pm and expected to come in the next day at 7:30am. There's a lack of lunch breaks, you're entitled to one but you'll never get your work done. The company doesn't know how to audit staff so annual reviews are complete guesswork, way too much testosterone in the office, always working weekends, the salary is terrible compared to other Dublin companies and the atmosphere is dire at times.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be a fairer way of doing the rota. Senior staff and managers are nowhere to be seen at weekends/evenings. This place is so disorganised.

    Cons

    None so far, all good.

    Pros

    Modern well located office with decent parking facilities

    Expected to carry out the impossible on a daily basis for little reward and no recognition

    Advice to Management

    Take more consideration of what employees suggest to management to improve operations and the working atmosphere - whilst company culture and values are stressed often they were rarely put into practice in my experience there

    Take on board more advice that comes from the people carrying out the day to day operations.
