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

    Pros

    Great balance of being an 86 year old company and start up environment in the US. The product technology that is coming out of our teams is cutting edge and will be amazing to see what they develop over the years. The marketing team is coalescing to drive customer acquisition in a sophisticated way. It is a very collaborative environment and even in a remote setting feels like a team/family.

    Cons

    It is a rapidly growing company and industry and you have to be able to pivot and adapt to an ever changing environment. Your plan for the day may only be good until the first shot is fired. Hours and work/life balance can become gray in this type of environment as we are all working so hard to deliver the best. As we grow and build teams out more, this will lessen but there are lofty expectations.

    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people who work in shops are some of the most loyal and hard working people you will ever meet in your life. William Hill do not deserve them!

    Cons

    Where to start... Work/life balance is non existent You are a slave to your inbox - literally hundreds of emails a day and you have to stay on top of them as the preferred management style here is by email. Make sure you copy yourself in on any emails you send - trust me, you will need the evidence at some point when you’re thrown under the bus Senior ‘leaders’ are lazy and useless, they are out of touch with what happens at shop level and have little regard for the safety and wellbeing of the people running them BPMs are over worked, under paid and disengaged They promote a ‘call it out’ culture but they absolutely don’t want anyone calling anything out. If you dare to speak up, you will be put back in your box immediately The retail business is finished and a lot of the shops across the estate will be lucky to make it through the second lockdown. Another restructure is almost guaranteed and those managers who have zero transferable skills will be knifing each other in the back to try and keep a job
