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

    Pros

    Nice perks. Nice benefits - free sky amd nice fruit in office. Nice facilities. Flexible working. Some good learning resources available. Bonuses could be good (that may or may not have stopped now) It can be a fun office at times with interesting things going on.

    Cons

    The company really, really cares about their staff. But not all of them. It is a bit like a micro class sysyem. If you are a developer or a software engineer then you will be treated brilliantly. If you are a call centre agent or admin staff they know they can replace you easily and it shows. Some staff get shiny new laptops others get ones that barely work depending on job they do. It can be a little disconcerting...

    Advice to Management

    Care less about being seen as a great place to work and actually be one.

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

    Pros

    Some great people work here Decent benefits

    Cons

    Graduates treated like children with their feedback ignored. Told most important part of the job is to be 'brand ambassadors' or to positively advertise the company - people who do this get rewarded. Higher ups don't care about the employees and reward people they are friends with rather than those who deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Try and care more about the people who do the actual work and make the company money. Stop allowing people in high positions to employ their friends even if they are not competent at the job they are given

    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with super-smart, creative, passionate people who want to do the right thing; always solving a different problem rather than having a routine; having the ability to make a difference and see rapid results; working in small, self-sufficient teams; working for a company actively committed to taking responsibility in the gambling sector.

    Cons

    In recent years the company has grown significantly, and some of the ways of working that were really successful as a smaller team haven't translated well to larger, geographically separate teams. Autonomy is good but at the cost of communication; teams would do well to share more about what they're working on.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make that great culture of autonomy/mastery/purpose work within a growing company, and especially becoming part of a public, international group. Stay passionate, engaged, and proud of the work you do.
