    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Bathroom breaks were not monitored. Wages were competitive.

    Cons

    Condescending and petty attitude by management to employees. Fear-based management, pressure, and adversarial relationships are encouraged. Management defends themselves against negative feedback by using scapegoats whenever delivering unpopular news. Archaic dress code for back-office employees, who will never see a customer, lets the employee know that the company owns every moment of their time. Peaks and valleys...

    Advice to Management

    Send management to leadership training to learn about presence and emotional intelligence. Treat skilled professionals as valued partners who are there to use their skills to help the company, not as an adversary who is there to take advantage of the company at every moment. Be transparent and concrete about incentives and compensation, instead of carrot-dangling.

    I have been working at William Hill full-time

    Pros

    The pay isn't horrible. The team (what's left of it) gels together and could create neat and unique projects.

    Cons

    Where do I start? -Communication is non existant (I.e. Website launch - no announcement. Projects canceled - no one told team to stop working on them). -High turnover. The worst I've seen in my career. - Benefits - all of the benefits are mediocre at best. No 401k match, no hope of upward mobility, lack of vacation and minimal holidays, not enough parking for the number of employees (while some people have passes...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Trust the employees that you hire to do what they are experts in - or don't hire them. We want to be excited about this company.

    The people I worked with
