    I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with some incredibly talented people see my team recognised and rewarded regularly, half my team have been promoted to higher levels in the half a year I’ve been here already Training and development is so connected to what we do delivery managers almost expect you to be doing it which is a great culture for innovation, development is encouraged fully. Great perks such as sky tv and healthcare as standard Handled the current global situation fairly and clearly as they possibly could

    Cons

    Sometimes teams can be a little bit siloed and there’s a lot of tech used so things can be hard to pick up, but no shortage of help when you ask!

    Pros

    I like that we have L&D time per week to learn things we are interested in, and that we also have training funds. My team is very friendly and welcoming, has very agile ways of working and a supporting environment. The leadership team in the company is also transparent and have a weekend Q&A panel. I joined during the lockdown, but I was still delivered the working kits, which is impressive. The company has also been doing a great job to keep everyone's job safe during the pandemic, thank you!

    Cons

    So far so good for the time I have been here
