    I have been working at Betfair full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The satellite offices of Cluj (Romania) & Porto have a healthy & strong culture, and have been a pleasure to work with over the years. The Hammersmith HQ was once a great place, but the iPO and focusing upon shareholders killed that off, along with the consistent bi-annual redundancy/re-org shake ups across the business.

    From a design pov their are some great people but the majority have left now, leadership is immature and led by mis-guided upper management. Pay is good & the benefits package is strong with good bonus potential.

    Cons

    Continuous change & upheaval has left existing employees jaded. The recent change in management has killed off what little culture was left in the Hammersmith HQ. Too many decisions being made to benefit middle management rather than company with little accountability for their actions.

    The business attempts (poorly) to be user led, even thou it has the infrastructure to do so, but again upper/middle management, mange to consistently undermine the value delivered by these teams consistently imposing their personal beliefs rather than being led by knowledgable staff, data & customer insights.

    Betfair is just becoming the goto place for Paddy Power staff following their ex COO for the ride. From a design pov its given little consideration at the higher levels, which is crazy for an exclusive digital brand. UX, Brand & marketing teams have a fragile relationship and at best rarely align with a full strategy to give full justice to the experiences released.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have forgotten about your no.1 assets, the people!, don't risk to loosing them. The amount of time and money spent on re-hiring talent only to potentially loose them a year later due to a lack of clear direction and knee jerk short term fixes. You have a great company in your hands, help the company to grow and rebuild the once great culture!
