    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Sky Betting & Gaming gearbeitet - Vollzeit

    Pros

    * Arguably one of the most relaxed places I have worked in terms of working culture. * Great set of benefits. * Tribe culture means teams are empowered within their own teams to deliver without much corporate red tape. * Agile pedigree, lots of teams operating in different ways and more is being done to share that working * Work hard, play hard mentality with some great annual events * Lots of leadership will... take the time to talk to you in person if you ask for it * Has been lots of opportunity to move around and try new roles in the last few years * Worked with some of the most capable people of my career at SBG * Probably learned the most I have at any company in the shortest time * Would have been 5 stars but the last 6 months have been rough (see below) * I was well paid and made it difficult for me to find much of a better offer elsewhere

    Kontras

    * Techies are treated like children that need to be pandered too the amount of money squirrelled away to allow techs to do what they want with tech instead of delivering valuable product is on the rise. There is a very unhealthy culture of tech having a say so with some pretty negative and non pragmatic people in senior roles. * Recent exodus of very well respected leaders that got SBG to where it was and unclear... expectations from strategy and new leadership. * Recent acquisition will mean lots of change over the next year or two which may or may not be for the better depending on your role * Some leadership unable to let go of their old roles and help those below them thrive by giving responsibility and ownership * Some areas of the business get completely washed over whilst others have budget for parties, better office space and furniture and more time out of working for events (the division of tribes is grown by this) * Say goodbye to any predictability on bonuses (they are paid and usually pretty good) but its impossible to tell now they are not forthcoming with financial results (like they were previously)

    Rat an das Management

    * Just because someone is good at a tech role does not make them a leader, all too often you see strong techies without the skills needed to manage people and has led to several people I know leaving or moving in the business. Make sure those people are being supported to be good people managers (ideally before putting them in those positions) * Clearer direction needs to be given, emphasis on the word clear, lots... is left to each tribes interpretation and left to be resolved between tribes. But the tribes are set up in a way where they do not work well across tribes. Leaders need to be more involved in clarifying what that means for each area whilst allowing innovation * Tech are a vital part of delivering great product but need to understand what authority they have and that tech options need to be justified against ROI, too many of your architects and senior techs are hiding the options that would deliver your product faster. Challenge this more, those tech roles wont keep growing as product development keeps getting slower * SBG is already losing its touch in agile delivery prowess and culture, do something about it sooner rather than later. Everyone is busy but it will be a lot harder as more of those good people leave for companies putting the effort in
