    Pros

    Great group of people, flexible hours, positive work place. There always seems to be a buzz about the building.

    Cons

    Sometimes dealing with the customers can get you down but you have to realise you are working in the gaming industry.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice the management team I had did a fantastic job. I hope my next job will have a similar group of managers

    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.

    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary! However in interview you are promised the sun, moon and stars! This does not happen!

    Cons

    They seem to just want to train monkeys to do jobs and once you want to have an input or try improve things, managers quickly clip your wings in fear of you being better than them! No room for progression! No ethics at all! I've never worked somewhere that has made me question something I love doing! My advice- get in and get it on your cv as agencies and recruiters seem to love pp, then get the hell out before you resent your job and yourself for putting up with it!

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul needed for middle management! Most have just inherited their positions through length of service and don't really have a clue! Oh and stop being such bullies!
