    I worked at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Arguably one of the most relaxed places I have worked in terms of working culture. * Great set of benefits. * Tribe culture means teams are empowered within their own teams to deliver without much corporate red tape. * Agile pedigree, lots of teams operating in different ways and more is being done to share that working * Work hard, play hard mentality with some great annual events * Lots of leadership will take the time to talk to you in person if you ask for it * Has been lots of opportunity to move around and try new roles in the last few years * Worked with some of the most capable people of my career at SBG * Probably learned the most I have at any company in the shortest time * Would have been 5 stars but the last 6 months have been rough (see below) * I was well paid and made it difficult for me to find much of a better offer elsewhere

    Cons

    * Techies are treated like children that need to be pandered too the amount of money squirrelled away to allow techs to do what they want with tech instead of delivering valuable product is on the rise. There is a very unhealthy culture of tech having a say so with some pretty negative and non pragmatic people in senior roles. * Recent exodus of very well respected leaders that got SBG to where it was and unclear expectations from strategy and new leadership. * Recent acquisition will mean lots of change over the next year or two which may or may not be for the better depending on your role * Some leadership unable to let go of their old roles and help those below them thrive by giving responsibility and ownership * Some areas of the business get completely washed over whilst others have budget for parties, better office space and furniture and more time out of working for events (the division of tribes is grown by this) * Say goodbye to any predictability on bonuses (they are paid and usually pretty good) but its impossible to tell now they are not forthcoming with financial results (like they were previously)
