    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at FanDuel full-time

    Pros

    If you manage to find the genuine people who work there then you are onto a winner; but they are few and far between these days Unlimited holidays and flexible working if you job allows it Snacks, juice, alcohol and hot drinks readily available Decent IT equipment offerings for staff members Centrally located offices

    Cons

    There are many snakes in the grass so beware! Expectation to work yourself into the ground for little to no recognition/your work will be stolen by the higher ups and presented as their own Complaints about conflict/bullying are swept under the carpet; habits of victim blaming consistently displayed by senior leadership team No accountability for line managers, again when issues arise it is either ignored or the employee complaining is asked if it is how they are perceiving it or whether it actually happened. Issues with mental health and burnout are ignored; attempts to seem like they care are plentiful (forced group “chats” on mental health awareness week, creation of fake “safe spaces” ran by people who are not trusted by the staff, etc.) but all are a smokescreen to tick a box as nobody who can make a difference to the environment that is having a negative impact on employees mental health are too busy to deal with it or they simply don’t care Nepotism is rife; promotions and career paths are handed out depending on if you suck up to the right person/people. Career paths are very unclear for certain roles and change depending on the person asking for the information or simply do not exist at all. This builds resentment within the company and damages morale Morale used to be amazing and is now all but gone as the people who are left have been so worn down with how much the company had negatively changed over the past few years

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

    Pros

    As a fairly new employee, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of trust and autonomy I was given from the get-go. New ideas are encouraged, and people across teams are open-minded, actively seeking other people's perspective on decisions and tasks. The individuals here are *extremely* talented - I don't think I've ever worked with such strong engineers, along with knowledgeable people across the business, an encouraging people team, and a funny and friendly office manager. Perks include genuinely flexible working - a lot of companies claim to encourage flexible working and then frown when you try to take a day from home. This is not the case in FanDuel, where focus is very solidly on attitude and delivery, not presenteeism. Additionally, holiday allowance here is uncapped. There are plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you going, Mariokart on Fridays, breakout areas with beanbags and a ping-pong table. These things might sound trivial, but getting away from my desk and having a race with people I don't usually work with, or sitting on a beanbag and listening to a podcast for a bit, has a hugely positive impact on my mindset and general attitude. The technologies and tools used in the company are pretty cool and the products are something to be proud of. The best thing, though, has to be the people here. They are truly a great bunch and make the culture really incredible.

    Cons

    Growing pains and scaling as the company rapidly expands - processes and procedures struggle to keep up with the changes
