    I have been working at DraftKings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Start up atmosphere, company-wide activities, offer extracurricular activities to attend (community service opportunities, group athletics, group trivia, etc.), lots of free snacks/beverages in the break room, clean and new facilities/furniture, open floor seating, a lot of young professionals, lots of growth (new employee almost every week)

    Cons

    Late and sometimes long hours, open floor seating, management is young and sometimes new to management

    I have been working at DraftKings full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    young, dynamic environment, take good care of their employees, interesting technical issues, state of the art technology (using c# though)

    Cons

    going through a rough patch now with all the controversy, law suits, un-known future; grew very fast so there is now over emphasis on process (will get better over time though), long hours (problematic if you have kids and family), weekend support during NFL season, on call over night one week a month

    I have been working at DraftKings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * I've learned more in 1 year at this company than maybe I have in my entire career. * Challenging engineering problems to solve (never bored at work) * Team is always looking to improve and evolve on everything. * Everyone is open to hearing intelligent constructive feedback on process and development. * Lots of culture perks: beers on tap, free snacks, haircuts, massages, manicures, great company parites.

    Cons

    * LONG hours * Always super busy

    I have been working at DraftKings full-time

    Pros

    - Super fast paced company, & even entry level positions will have a ton of responsibility - Great management team - Incredible work environment (including multiple kegs on tap)

    Cons

    - Some people do work fairly long hours, but it is usually because there is so much exciting work to do & we can't hire enough people fast enough!
