    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exciting, challenging AND fun place to work
    Every day is a new challenge to be handled
    No two days are the same actually :)
    Lots of professional development options
    Unlimited time-off

    Cons

    work life balance is an issue
    too stressful at times when deadlines are steep
    old technology to be supported for some stuff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to recognize the work life balance for the employees before aiming for the deadlines
    need more incentives

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I wake up every morning energized to come to work at GoDaddy - I feel like I have the BEST job in the world because of the way my manager makes me feel. I am empowered, supported, and given the tools and development I need to succeed and given the freedom to make mistakes (although I try to avoid them when I can!). I learn from everything and I am given the latitude to try new things. I love working at GoDaddy because of the challenging work and the PEOPLE. Our culture here is fun and the people are like family to me. I am always learning and constantly growing because of our amazing culture and the people here are supportive, fun, and intelligent. I am ALL IN because of the amazing culture, the opportunities to learn and grow, and because of the people. Great job opportunities. The culture and values at GoDaddy are positive and inspiring - we're here to make an impact and I feel a sense of pride.

    Cons

    We are still building our internal infrastructure - so we're scrappy - kind of like a start-up at scale. It's cool because you can make an impact and not feel like a COG in a wheel at a bigger tech company. GoDaddy still has a smaller-start-up feel - which I love.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees and focus on creating an employee-first culture. I love it here and hope that we continue to live our values and share our awesome culture with the world.

    I have been working at GoDaddy

    Pros

    GoDaddy is in a changing state since Blake Irving took over and for the better. I like the feeling of actually being able to make an impact then just feeling like another number. Seeing the transition of the company and actually being someone here makes me proud to be apart of this

    Cons

    Huge transitions are happening daily, so changes are bound to happen
