Pros

Strong engineering team. Good name recognition for resume. Bob is both a showman and an ex-marine. Its an interesting place to be, but also a tough place to be. Its an established business with more of an intense start-up culture. You get good pay and good benefits here, but you really earn both. There are really nice holiday parties where you can win some really nice gifts like flat screen TV's and such. Bob does know how to throw a party!

Cons

High pressure. Speed of execution matters above all else. You must be preapred to work till 6 or 7 most nights. If you work late there is no comp time, so don't try coming in late the next day!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try creating a good software development process. More emphasis on making useful apps and less on marketing gimmicks.

    Pros

    Great commission structure, laid-back workplace environment, drawings and prizes all the time for cash and cool stuff, tons of internal promotion opportunities, generally fun place to be.

    Cons

    customers can be difficult, it's a call center with metrics so there are some stresses to meet them, a little too much emphasis on sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it's a pretty good thing going on at GD, just dont mess it up. there are some small improvements that could be made, but on the whole it's pretty good.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for career advancement. Unfortunately, this was due to high turnover. Most management including senior management were promoted from within regardless of educational background or management experience. This method of promotion, though nice for employees to advance, is not too successful for Go Daddy as a whole since the management has no idea how to successfully manage.

    Cons

    High turnover, very quick to fire individuals based on small mistakes. Always felt like today was your last day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shape up employee satisfaction so you can rid yourself of the title "IT Sweatshop" of the Phoenix Metro Area. Provide work from home options and time off after long projects.
