    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Meeting great people, and no day is the same.

    Cons

    60+ hours working a week. You can Not switch off. Other team members do not not pick up for you if you switch off, so you work on days off and holidays too.

    Advice to Management

    Do not send out generalised emails to team if someone not pulling their weight. Direct email to that person who is letting the team down. That way people who’re getting on with their role don’t feel constantly bashed for doing right.
