    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.

    Pros

    Business that looks after their staff and cares for their people. Treat people as individuals with individual needs rather than a cog in a machine. Benefits are good. As a product person you are really given the opportunity to shape the business and given full autonomy and trust to make great products.

    Cons

    Increased process of an established business means things take longer to get done. Some employers looking in the same talent pool are higher payers.

    Pros

    I previously had never been given the support and opportunity to progress in previous roles but have had this in spades at SBG. the total freedom to apply for new roles and learn new skills and knowledge has been key for me.

    Cons

    as the business has grown very quickly processes aren't as engrained into the way of working as with a more established business but this is part of the challenge in helping to shape the business

    Pros

    SBG look after their staff really well. Free Sky TV (including Sky Box Office!), 2 bonuses a year - yes 2! A generous pension scheme, and freebies throughout the year make SBG a fun place to work. The leadership team are approachable and have been exemplary in the way they have handled the Covid-19 lockdown. No company is perfect but SBG is always trying to be the best company it can be! Always listening and adapting there are few companies out there that will treat you better. They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but the grass is very green on this side of the fence at Sky Betting and Gaming!! 5 Stars!

    Cons

    The Tribe system isn’t as clear as it should be and needs an overhaul. Some of the culture has been lost since becoming part of Stars Group (This may rectify itself now we are part of Flutter).
