    Pros

    I have only been here a few days and I feel truly welcomed from all the team all over the world. Its also exceptional knowing that staff have been here for a long time like 8/9 and 10 years which goes to show this is a great company to work for with great benefits.

    Cons

    nothing so far to report!

    I have been working at Rational Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay.. easy to get in now since they only want sportsbook employees...nothing more to say to be honest

    Cons

    No growth...
    Poor management... only the ones that are friends with management get promoted to manager with no educational background
    New policy is: if you don't like it.there's the door
    Too much harrasment

    Advice to Management

    Get educated on how to treat employees properly and stop harrasing them. Appreciate your staff they are human and not machines

    I have been working at Rational Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits - healthcare/dental care, annual bonus (up to 20%), subsidised lunch, travel pass.

    Cons

    Annual salary increase is very poor in my opinion (1%, 2% if lucky), based on an above average KPI scoring.

    Advice to Management

    More promotions and opportunities for internal staff (already have a lot of talent). Reward with competitive salary (to outside market), instead of a small increase to the nearest thousand, just for the sake of increase.

    I worked at Rational Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great package and fantastic office location in central London. Good social activities organised in an international work environment. Many nationalities work together in one office in London, great opportunity to learn about other cultures.

    Cons

    Poor management, no decision making, most people are complacent and stay long time with the company only for the package. There has been no clear direction or communication within the group in the past 3 years, this has caused uncertainty and a toxic work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more transparent and to give more clear direction to your team.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Too little space for development

    Advice to Management

    Money is important for sure, but so are your people. Unfortunately you fail to provide a secure working surrounding

    I have been working at Rational Group full-time

    Pros

    The engineering team is very sharp

    Cons

    Management is very unprofessional and seems inexperienced. There is a lack of company culture. The HR department could use much improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better and focus on company culture.

    I worked at Rational Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical & dental), office location and amenities.

    Cons

    Serious lack of trust with different departments within org. Too heavy management driven by favouritism and friendship rather than based of quality and impact. HR structure doesn’t not support staff and very critical and ignorant of issues internally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hold of good talent and promote accordingly.

    Great bonus
    Gym
    Canteen
    People are amazing
    State of the art tech

    Cons

    I worked at Rational Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of charity activities and central location.

    Cons

    - Departments are highly secretive and keep things from each other causing distrust.

    - A frightening number of managers are quite petty.
    - Management has no vision. Today's next big thing will suddenly stop being talked about as management chases the next shiny object (this applies to product as well).

    I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH:
    Your experience at this company will be HIGHLY dependent on who you report to. Everything is extremely siloed with little standardization of process/procedure.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your vision.
