    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Its a fast moving and fun place to work. The people and culture are very positive and inclusive. Pay and bonuses are more than competitive and we genuinely do out best to entertain and protect our customers.

    Cons

    Its easy to get a little caught up and work to many hours although that is a personal choice and you are never forced.

    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Culture is extremely friendly. - Relaxed atmosphere with few rules; serious work done in a non-serious way. - Accomodating place to work: flexible hours day to day (simply agreed with manager on a mutual respect basis), great understanding for last minute holiday or emergencies. - Amazing support for health and family issues. - Extremely competent and very intelligent people working here. - Lots of individualism; people wear all sorts and it's all accepted. - Exciting work; it's a fun and fast industry with a lot of creative design work, fun experimentation and great front-end websites. - Cutting edge tech stack. - Hugely profitable business means lovely benefits and daily perks. - Benefits list is amazing, from a nearly-free top-end Sky package, to free gym membership, local discounts, saving schemes and so much more. - Decent machines to work on (choice of i7 PCs or Mac Pros for everyone not in the call centre, who have decent desktop machines). - Comfortable office environment with great facilities, few 'stupid' rules which are common (like don't drink at your desk, or don't have hot food in the office): we're adults and we don't need rules which make it weird and uncomfortable to 'live' in the workplace; if someone spills, they clean it up. Simple. - Little travel required between offices for many jobholders. - Slack is used across the entire business, allowing great comms (between meetings) between Marketing, Change, Customer services to - Agile and Waterfall working used (mostly Agile) and well understood by all of the business - Excellent graduate scheme to bring in developers. - Each squad (team) is responsible for their own area and has a LOT of autonomy to choose their best tech stack, their own architecture; DevOps environment.

    Cons

    - It's a gambling company and we're providing entertainment for people. sadly, some poeple struggle to see when they should slow down or stop spending money. Whilst SBG are one of, if not the best company for identifying people struggling with gambling and helping them, it's still doesn't give you the same feeling as working for e.g. a charity. - Relaxed culture might not be up your street! - True blue-collar workers would struggle with the relaxed atmosphere here. It's playful and jovial very often. - The average age of employees is probably around 28; could be good or bad but a lot of people outside of SBG see this as a bad thing, a limiting thing. - Management can be very hands-off which can be good and bad, depending on your style/ability/needs. - Higher management can push throuhg ideas which railroad ongoing work. - There's usually one or two things a year which can affect a lot of other work, but the required changes are important/worth doing, and everyone rallies to ensure delivery.
