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

    Pros

    I like that we have L&D time per week to learn things we are interested in, and that we also have training funds. My team is very friendly and welcoming, has very agile ways of working and a supporting environment. The leadership team in the company is also transparent and have a weekend Q&A panel. I joined during the lockdown, but I was still delivered the working kits, which is impressive. The company has also been doing a great job to keep everyone's job safe during the pandemic, thank you!

    Cons

    So far so good for the time I have been here

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

    Pros

    I have worked for SBG for two years now and it still continues to be one of the best companies I have worked for. Technology wise, there is constant encouragement from all levels of the organisation to continue pushing the technology platform forward within the company, with many of the advancements coming from colleagues during their in-work learning & development time. Company culture is great, with great events such as the yearly 'Gathering' festival and plenty of social events meaning you feel more than just a payroll number. Salary and benefits are great as expected.

    Cons

    Because of the devops approach to software development, there isn't always a good turnover of new work, meaning not every sprint contains interesting tickets, but this is often few and far between.

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

    Pros

    A great company culture where employees are looked after and rewarded for their contribution. A lot of opportunities to take the lead on initiatives and influence the products and tools your team, tribe or even the company use. Ninja Fund enables all team members to take their development further.

    Cons

    There can sometimes be silos between the various tribes (departments) though this is an area of focus for management. Parking is limited nearby and expensive, though rail and bus links are reasonably good it’s not always an option.
