Pros

Great benefits, co-workers friendly and easy to work with.

Cons

This is a sales job. Don't be fooled at the interview thinking it is mainly tech support with consulting. Any career movement is based on numbers and sales is the most important thing in this position. You never see any contests or numbers on the board concerning any tech support it is all sales numbers. For instance, never a contest or kudos on how many customers you helped successfully set up Outlook...all contests and recognition (if that is important to you) is based on how much you sell. You cannot move to another department unless your sales meet or exceed metrics and can be fired if sales are not met. If you're great in sales then an excellent job otherwise not so much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize not everyone is a sales person and may have other attributes and abilities that would be needed in another position. You spend so much money on training etc don't loose your good employees because of this.

    Pros

    Compensation Plan payed well. Fun and games plus incentives to win prizes. Loved the Christmas parties

    Cons

    Compensation plan changed which cut your commissions to about 40% less and you had to work harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes constantly. If you want to make steady income, this is not the place. Federal taxes 30% of your bonus.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Go Daddy are, unfortunately, not connected to the workday. They offer great insurance, 401k, and vacation.

    Cons

    You'll need the insurance and vacation, as you will check your life at the door when you first walk in. The workday never stops, and neither do the emergencies and stress. Go Daddy is a "good ol' boys' club" -- if you can grease up the right people, you'll be fine. If you don't take that seriously, you won't be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go Daddy sold its soul to benefit a few. It used to be a special place with a special mission. That place is dead. I hope you get everything you're seeking.
