    I worked at Bet365 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked in the Manchester office for the Sports Development team and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. You'll be working with a very talented group of people on interesting projects. The management is very supportive and understanding. All the team leaders that I worked with were absolutely great - they made me feel like a valued member of the team. The majority of the team leaders were also past developers at bet365 - this was useful as they already had an appreciation on some of the problems that the developers could face. The tech lead is also a great guy - full of experience and knowledge, and always willing to share it with the wider team. The senior developers here are amongst some of the best developers I've worked with in my career so far. They're approachable and always willing to help. They do a great job in ensuring the right solutions are reached. We got free coffee and tea. Free pizza on Fridays (once a month). Regular team social events. Opportunity to work in an agile environment on an impressive scale.

    Cons

    No significant cons from my experience. Left the company to shorten my commute to work.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bet365 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary and also the trainers mainly Alina! Also Richard is a great guy, anybody who has him as a mentor is lucky!

    Cons

    This is not a graduate scheme it is a fast track to become a call centre manager. You are basically a call centre operative on slightly better money but as you are salaried you do not yet the wage enhancements that hourly employees are entitled to. Shift pattern is awful. I was in the Rota for seven weekends in a row (you are supposed to do three out of four). Also parking is awful! I think with covid this has gotten better but once staff return to work it is a nightmare.

    I have been working at Bet365 full-time

    Pros

    Staff are appreciated by senior management. E.g., I had a personal apology (face to face) from ceo over a payroll error.

    Cons

    Department management can be dictatorial. Eg infrastructure services is very siloed. They paid a lot of money for specialist training, then don't consult me on that specialist subject
