    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time

    Pros

    Solid Company. Good Pay. Interesting Industry. Fast Paced Environment. Television plus Horseracing plus Gaming website.

    Cons

    Disorganized and revolving door management at US office. Culture of blame others and not take responsibility. Morale is a problem since Management won't really listen to employees. Many legacy employees are being pushed out to make room for younger less qualified/ cheaper replacements.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Take Real action not just offer platitudes. Give folks a chance to grow. Clean up culture of blame.
