Frat Culture Top to Bottom
Technical Lead (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 16, 2018
DraftKings is exactly what you'd expect a software company in the business of fantasy sports that has a bunch of ex-poker pros in its analytics team would be. The beer taps flowing at lunch was never surprising. Hearing managers refer to the women who reported into them as "girls" was never surprising. The fact that employees were fired for unwanted advances on coworkers wasn't surprising.
The on call rotation can be rough... being woken up in the middle of the night at least once per rotation was the norm. During the football season, expect to work a Sunday (and get a weekday off in exchange).
But if you love sports, love fantasy sports, and want to be surrounded by coworkers who love those things, as well, DraftKings has a lot to offer.
Free beer, fun events
institutional misogyny, rough on-call
