    Pros

    -One of the best possible landing spots for anyone with a passion for working in sports. -Even non-sports fan employees can enjoy the still-ascending trajectory of the company, great benefits, and good inter- and intra-departmental mobility. -Surrounded by teammates who know what they're doing and make me want to be better. -Still has a lot of the scrappy startup DNA without being trite or cliché. -Tremendous upside for company growth as sports betting is legalized in more states. -Intellectually stimulating environment with a lot of smart people and new, exciting challenges emerging all the time. -New ideas, no matter how small, are always welcomed and considered. -Excellent senior leadership... as one particular example, without getting into too many details, they extended themselves to help a certain segment of the employee population out when they were no obligation (other than to do the right thing) to do so, and might have had a nicer-looking balance sheet if they'd stood on the sidelines. These guys say they want to be a great place to work and they care about their employees, and actions like these are testament to that.

    Cons

    -Hours in my line of work can be a little longer than normal. Doesn't bother me personally that much since I think this job is a lot fun. -Most offices are in areas with pretty high costs of living.

    Pros

    Working at DK has been great. I’ve only worked from home so I can’t really speak to an office experience but given the current circumstances it’s been a great entry level experience. Company seems to be growing at a rapid pace which is exciting to see. DK is the perfect combination of tech and sports.

    Cons

    -Unfortunate reality of the CX role is you work every weekend, which is understandable due to these being some of our busiest days. - Can get repetitive, often times there will be issues you aren’t able to resolve without having to get in contact with another team. These other teams aren’t as staffed as CX and become easily backed up. - Job training has been less than ideal, should note though it’s all been remote.

    Pros

    DraftKings is a place where ideas are never shut down and you are free to make choices around what career path you want to go on. There is so much internal mobility, and a lot of room for growth. The environment is super fast paced and the stress levels can get very high, but you are also working with a lot of people who put in so much effort and passion into what they are doing, that you can't even be mad at the amount of work you yourself is doing.

    Cons

    Work life balance is always on everyone's mind. Your managers, directors, and your peers, will continue to remind you to prioritize a work life balance, but it does become a little difficult when there are tentpole events occurring. But in all fairness, I believe you will experience that no matter where you go. When there are big projects, you just have to put in the effort for it.

    Pros

    Social benefits, workplace is great, some nice activities organised for people within the company

    Cons

    No work-life balance in most departments, no real career development for people in Trading department, especially if you are Bulgarian. Really sorry to have to write that, but discrimination here is real, and it is not against people of colour, but towards Bulgarians from people in management, most of them British. You can not voice out your opinion, or even slightly criticise them, because you will be crushed by those guys who are a team It doesn't matter what valuable qualities you possess and how much time and effort you've given to the company. They will not even have a talk with you, to make you aware they are not happy with sth, they will make sure you are expelled as fast as possible because you interfere their comfort !!!

    Thank you for your candid feedback, and we're saddened that we're not providing you with an employee experience that we strive to provide all employees. At DraftKings, discrimination of any form will never be tolerated, and we work to foster an inclusive culture where all voices are heard. Please reach out to me personally so I may assist in this matter. Thank you, George
