    Former Employee - Analytics Manager

    I worked at Paddy Power Betfair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Porto office was good
    Lots of the people on the ground at the coal face were actually very good and talented

    Cons

    Senior management had little to no idea what was actually going on within the company. Their corporate strategy seemed to be to restructure the place every six weeks and call it leadership
    Promotions were almost exclusively made on the basis of personal relationships. It was a deeply political place, competence in the job at the senior level was a very distant second consideration to loyalty
