    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time

    Pros

    Working with some great people, the opportunity to legitimately talk about sport as part of your role, getting involved in lots of different and exciting projects, good culture with a genuine interest in getting better and increasing engagement, smart/casual dress code, open philosophy of sharing information, great parties, good bonus, annual pay rise for good performers.

    Cons

    It was sometimes difficult to understand the reasoning of some senior management decisions, trying to get improvements to existing technology was difficult with tech time often allocated on a who you know basis or the next big money making idea.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make tough decisions regarding personnel.
