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

    Pros

    Great team spirit in all offices.
    People are friendly, passionate and experts, they really do live by their corporate values!
    Staff is very well pampered, you don't find this in many places nowadays, that's exactly why people stay there for long - it might be the secret to the groups' overall success!
    The group has a vision / strategy and they stick to it, execs know what they are doing, which is great!

    Cons

    Office facilities need to be improved especially in Malta, as space is very limited! I know management is working on it though, so it isn't being ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the good work, but most importantly don't neglect the development of the back-end as some tools are quite old and need desperate improvements.

    I have been working at Unibet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Extra annual day of leave

    Cons

    - They demoralise you to the point of making you feel worthless.
    - I've heard a certain person in HR talking badly about some colleagues. I've heard her describe people as 'fat' and 'ugly'. It was utterly shocking to hear.
    - They fire people without warning. They disappear overnight wihtout any explanation
    - No one ever talks to other people. There's no social banter, no good mornings, no anything
    - There's no communication between teams
    - I have the worst boss imaginable. He'll take your ideas and give them to your colleagues for them to execute them. There's so much toxicity in the team that no one ever talks to anyone and we don't trust each other. It has reached a point where I can go days without speaking to anyone. That's how bad the atmosphere is.
    - They are trying to sell the idea that the new office will be great and fantastic but it's going to be in the heart of Sliema with little parking.
    - The boss literally sits on his butt working on his own affiliate sites rather than working on Unibet projects
    - The head of department never speaks to anyone who wasn't a manager
    - We were asked what courses we wanted to attend but couldn't afford a simple 50 euros for the entire team to do an online course
    - They allow a colleague do nothing whatsoever and when probed about it, they say that Unibet never fires people like him (this is due to nepotism). This in turn, has led to the guy getting paid for nothing. He's currently sitting at his desk gambling, doing nothing and getting payrises. The boss admitted he's useless.
    - There's little opportunity for progress
    - Boss disappears for hours on breaks with other teams

    Advice to Management

    - Just quit!

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

    Pros

    Amazing mangement
    Amazing benefits
    Amazon relocation packaged..
    Quite good salery
    Awesome employees

    ... Get the idea?

    To add to this, I was so unlucky to get hit by Cancer while working for Unibet, and even though they did not need to, they still chose to support me though the entire time (7 months) with full pay, bonuses and constant check ups if i were doing okay (Not work wise, only as in how i was doing)

    Sadly Unibet and I had to part ways as I have chosen to do further education instead, however I am CERTAIN I will be back one day - And hopefully there will be a spot at this awesome company for me again.

    Thanks for all guys!

    (For people considering Unibet, DO IT)

    Cons

    Sometimes the coffee mashine does not work - But hey there is like 3 there..

    Advice to Management

    I have only the best to add to all the managers at Unibet, and if you have the option to work with Rune, see yourself as the most lucky employee in the world - He is awesome!

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

    Pros

    life / work balance is indeed very good

    Cons

    where to start....
    - poor management - people do not have skills, cheap labour. They got promoted only because they are friends, some people have a title of head of department and do not speak even proper English (sic!) people without any experience and knowledge.
    - huge turnover, there are teams where people leaves every 2 - 3 months
    - salary!!!! (one of the lowest in the industry) but hey! this is not important right?

    Advice to Management

    well, the whole restructure showed how mos of the managers are weak in the London office. I do not see any bright future for the company. Indeed you make money but you lose best people

    I have been working at Unibet full-time

    Pros

    Lots of good people, who are eager to work very hard and put lots of effort overall
    Flexibility and freedom in general
    I have been working here for a long time and haven't had a single day when I was dreading to come to the office

    Cons

    Salaries don't match the rest of the industry. Back in the days, only the small companies used to pay more, now the biggest companies do that as well. Lots of hard working people are leaving as they do not feel they get paid enough. And looking at the industry, salaries at Unibet become a bit of a joke.

    The recent restructure has changed the company a lot, and while the restructure itself is a good idea, it has been communicated poorly. The atmosphere has changed a lot and it seems like the Unibet is losing the best of its qualities and the brand identity. Becoming too corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Review the salary structures! Otherwise you will always only just manage to keep your nose above water. You only attract junior people in commercial with no experience in the industry and it's becoming too problematic. Hard to reach the ambitious goals if you have no talent to support that.

    I worked at Unibet full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to pursue interests based on your expertise
    Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Silos still exist particularly amongst different geographical locations
    The C-level execs don't make an effort to get to know employees enough
    Hierarchical even though they claim to have a flat structure

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the people working in your areas otherwise you come across as not caring and only interested in yourselves and your own agenda
