    Inconvénients

    😐SBG isn't a perfect company but the Pros definitely outweigh the Cons 😕The company is so fast paced that it doesn't always suit everyone - it helps to be ambitious and willing to work hard 😕The company has grown quickly so there are areas that have had to add extra process to ensure smooth running 😕Due to there being so much headroom and so many opportunities, there have been occasions where SBG has tried to do too...

    Avantages

    Good benefit, free skytv is a nice, as is the bupa healthcare and the bonus schemes are good.

    Inconvénients

    The company is very silo'd, though people constantly talk about a no blame culture, that is not the case and whilst they promote the "no hierarchy", that just makes it impossible to get anything done, as everyone wants to do things differently so decisions are constantly overruled. This makes the rate of change and delivery slow and things end up being rushed and therefore not great quality. The work environment can be...

    Stop using events as a big PR adverts to bring in new staff, we all know thats what they are for, we're not blind. Instead spend the money on investing on the good people you have.

    Used to be a great place to work with a great people focused culture and atmosphere.

    Inconvénients

    Pay is low for the industry. Favouritism and politics are rife. There is basically nothing left now Stars have bought it. The culture clash is huge, you could have been proud to work at SBG, but Stars are just another massive gambling outfit who will stop at nothing for profit. Stars leadership are a joke and think they know better even though their culture is toxic, their products are poor and some of their leaders...

    Avantages

    Good benefits, flat structure, 10% L&D time

    Inconvénients

    Taken over by Poker stars group, who have pretty much slowly destroyed the previous working culture. No focus on staff progression routes, salaries are dropping, bonus's scheme due to be under review next year. Lot's of redundancies, current staff have to pick up the work that still needs doing. Really stress full place to work at the moment.

    Conseils à la direction

    Don't loose the people first culture, that is what made SBG what it is today.

    Avantages

    Good benefits. Nice perks. Nice facilities. Some progression opportunities. Some nice people. The work can be interesting as it is a fast moving industry.

    Inconvénients

    It is a culture built on favouritism rather than merit. Great inequality between job roles. Not just in pay which is expected but in how you are treated as a person, which is not. Other reviews have said this but a great many roles are filled by people who have no business doing them. I gave 3 stars to be nice but I did lean towards the 2.

    Conseils à la direction

    Value the folk at the bottom and they'll work hard for you.

    Avantages

    SBG has an excellent working environment which would rival any other high flying tech company. Marvellous benefits, perks and treats. Great community presence in Yorkshire and willingness to tackle inequality in the industry. Corporately speaking, you can feel as included or excluded as you want to.

    Inconvénients

    Some “leadership” actions leave many of those in the trenches completely baffled. Decisions are made on little to no domain experience and often borne out of nepotism. This has a detrimental impact not only on day to day delivery but the morale of those expected to deliver. Couple that with a practically nonexistent forum for career management and progression (ironically, this is contrary to a huge investment in developing...

    Conseils à la direction

    I once heard this quote which I will always associate with SBG: “Just because you shout the loudest doesn’t mean that you’re right”. Take time to actively talk to AND listen to the people around you and underneath you and make informed strategic decisions, some of which won’t be easy, instead of applying a shortsighted “shoot from the hip” approach because everyone gets hurt.

    Inconvénients

    Dull atmosphere, lack of progression, uninspiring leadership, waiting for problems to happen and not being pro-active in identifying issues.

    Conseils à la direction

    Hire better staff, stop with the 8 hour working day, people are only productive for about 2, rest of the time is spent gambling

    * 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...

    Inconvénients

    * 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...

    Conseils à la direction

    * 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...
