Technical Lead (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAFebruary 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.
Pros
Free beer, fun events
Cons
institutional misogyny, rough on-call

Intern (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMarch 4, 2017
I was only there for a summer but it was a good experience to have. I did a lot of research. I was there before it really took off. You could tell this was going to be big.

Great place to work! Was a Finance intern for summer and winter, and was immediately made part of the team. Everything about the company was enjoyable all the way from employees to the product. Would certainly recommend!

Opportunities are given to those who will take them. Very nurturing environment. Good management. Better peers. Very fast paced. Product could use more organization.
