I worked at GoDaddy

Pros

Pay is decent, benefits are good. Most of the new technologies are used.

Cons

Executives and most middle management - they are nepotistic and incompetent. Absurd deadlines. Bad ideas get approved, good ideas get ignored.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourselves.

    If you need a job they are always hiring, if you want a career look elsewhere

    I have been working at GoDaddy

    Pros

    The people you work with are nice (at the peer level). The benefits are decent as well - but count on using your vacation time to get your weekends off since almost everyone works a Saturday or Sunday.

    Cons

    The company however runs more like a circus act with high schoolers in charge - and cocky attitudes and misguided concepts of business to boot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try listening to the people who work for you and you might be surprised at the diversity of soil sets they have to offer. And maybe you should jump back on the phone for one day a month so you remember what it can be like.

    Good job if you do what you're told and nothing else.

    Pros

    Good company, obviously big so pays you on time. Team-based work so there is healthy sales competition. They teach you a lot of stuff. Has high potential for sales but quotas are kinda unfair, given that about half of what you sell is kind of unnecessary. (10 year domain registrations...etc.)

    Cons

    Pretty unfair promotion tactics. You pretty much either have to be a very pretty female (rare in tech industries) or work there for a ridiculously long time just to get to the middle-management arena. Your bonus gets taken away from you if you don't meet quota. Unrealistic sales expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont' treat your reps like goons; we are smarter than you realize and possibly smarter than you. Treat us fairly and respectfully and we will work hard for you.
