Pros

The people are friendly and are willing to help others to be successful as well.

Cons

Due to the chaos (like any other start-up environment), getting some answers to issues are a bit delayed at times....but will be received evidently.

    Pros

    informal environment. lot of opportunities to explore at technology front. some of the best mind in industry work here.. technology team is amazing.. great blend of technologists spread across UK, romania and USA. few managers are amazing so is core platform team. can match or supercede any company in UK as far as technological advancement is concerned.

    Cons

    processes are still not very well defined .. still lot of knowledge sits in an individuals head. lot of expereinced people have parted away recently. though with teams building in romania and USA, this issue is less relevant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing in particular..have seen some of the best managers here..

    Pros

    Betfair is by far the best place I've ever worked for. There's a lot of opportunity to learn new things and the compensation is competitive. The people are very professional and management is on top of things. You should try to work here... if you can get in lol

    Cons

    Management was trying to hire very rapidly and in the process they hired a few bad apples, but these people didn't last, you have to know your stuff to be last here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people on a contract-to-hire basis so you can get rid of them quickly if it don't work out. Don't hire FTE off the bat.
