    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Used to have nice culture and laid back environment. Ok salaries for Gibraltar. Good relocation package.

    Cons

    Since the management change there is a lot of bullying and lies. HR is strictly horrible. Marketing a modern company culture but in reality the mentality needs rethinking from top to bottom. Total lack of consistent communication between management and employees. Due to high turnover rate, you usually find your team understaffed, and the mass of work is enormous. Stressful environment. Low automation rate, growing tech debt, no time or true will for improvement. No respect for employees who actually contribute to the company. Lies and fake promises to keep you in the company. Bureaucracy reminds of communist regimes. You have a problem and you have no access to speak to the people with authority. Looks like people get promoted beside of good public relations and not because of merit. No official training at all.

    I have been working at William Hill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule (at least before new management changes)

    Cons

    Been working here for over 6+ years and when I first started the culture was absolutely amazing! Over the years, people who has been with the company from before the merge, majority of them left because executives and management shows and speaks with no respect to their subordinates. Since HR staff has changed the culture has completely lacked and changed. Barely any company functions (and when there is, it’s more like it feels forced). HR department always has to get back to you when you have questions, never an immediate answer. No relationships at all unless you’re in HR department. they rarely get rid of management in any department even when they’re are multiple complaints. Subordinates have no chance in anything. Very CUTTHROAT! IAlmost every department has no relationships amongst each other. Lack of training, no real answers, everyone does everything based on how they want to do it. No perks on being salary! Management takes the ability of being flexible and takes the perks of being salary away. Management let’s their team BULLY one another. They won’t do anything just as long as their not being insubordinate to management. “Team” is not even in the vocabulary.

    Pros

    Laid back, comfortable, easy going, not a lot of goals and pressure. Nice company. In the off season you will maybe get 30 calls and 40 chats a week which is absolutely fabulous. It is a brand new company in New Jersey. They come from UK but just set up shop in my

    Cons

    Not challenges, however the office I’m in doesn’t have much structure, the supervisors are young and unprofessional. No holiday pay straight time only, and you can bet your bottom dollar they are going to make you work every weekend. Pay very low, off season is totally unproductive.

    Pros

    A lot of really good people get employed there. Can watch TV. Can take breaks whenever. Can make up reasons for your work as long as your boss likes you 😉.

    Cons

    If you were to ask a manager what was going on in the tech Dept noone could give you an honest answer because they didn't have one. There is only a short amount of time that it is fun to work there. Once you reach it you are done. Watched it happen to a lot of people there. Continuation of bad management. It's really crazy to think about the amount of incompetent manager/director(s) working there for so long unnoticed. When they finally let someone go it's too late, they have already planted seeds of hate and driven off talent.

    We always appreciate receiving feedback from our employees on where we have room to improve. I’m happy to see that you have been working for the company for over three years and are interested in helping us implement change. Please be assured that all of our staff attend an Anti-Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation training which does cover the topic of bullying. Your knowledge of the multiple jurisdictions that we operate in is very valuable when it comes to identifying areas of improvement. Please utilize our annual survey, online suggestion box or employee hotline to provide specific details on how we can make improvements to your working environment. Surely the atmosphere you have described is not the experience we want for the team.

    I worked at William Hill full-time for less 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 of work due to lack of planning, leading to last-minute scrambles and heroism to deliver. Yet, self-organization and innovation seen as a threat to authority and quashed. Little concern for employee work-life balance.
