I worked at Betfair

Pros

Very inclusive company, and technically skilled employees
Very good atmosphere in the office and facilities are good.
Leaders within their industry

Cons

High turn around of staff, which shows in some projects
Can some times feel that the management doesn't know the direction they want the company to go

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company should focus on a few goals and improve in those areas rather than going for the machine gun approach.

    I have been working at Betfair

    Pros

    Coming from a large corporate background Betfair is a refreshing change. I love the challenges it brings and there is so much room for growth and opportunity to make a difference.
    In the current climate I feel fortunate to be working for an Organisation that is doing well and still growing.
    Employees at Betfair have a certain pride with working here and what betfair has created in the exchange which you dont see in many organisations.
    Betfair encourages its employees to have a voice and an opinion.

    Lots of negative feedback on here but many of the people that leave realise the grass isnt greener and come back.
    Socially its fantastic with lots of team events happening . Arent many places you get two big parties a year!

    Cons

    Outside of gaming industry, fairly uinknown brand.
    External perception of working at Betfair not good, we need to get better at selling our strengths and celebrating them too!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking forward to seeing some positive changes with recent internal activity on succession planning.
    Management need to be more visible and could benefit from regular Communications.
