Pros

A vibrant, young company with huge strategic advantages.

Cons

A lot of managers who have little to no real experience or education leaves a lot of room for missed opportunities.

Advice to Management

Get educated. "The GoDaddy Way" is not always the best way. It is great that GoDaddy promotes from within but there are not a lot of new or innovative ideas to drive real growth. Don't let the investment partners continue to chip away at what once made GoDaddy great.

    Pros

    - Overall, the people are smart, hard-working, and try to assist you with professional development.
    - There are a ton of internal opportunities.
    - Fairly flexible with working from home occasionally.
    - Work/Life balance isn't bad (~45 hrs / week)

    Cons

    - Pay is low compared to other tech companies (even within AZ)
    - Bonus system (1 per year) is lame.
    - QA staff don't seem very skilled (regarding software development skills)

    Advice to Management

    - No advice for current staff since the CEO and others are in new roles.
    - Pay people more.

    Pros

    Headquarters are in Scottsdale AZ, which is a beautiful city to live in. The holiday party at the end of the year is a blast, but will only last as long as Bob Parsons is willing and able to pay for it himself.

    Cons

    The travel policy is horrible. You will often find yourself in a situation where you won't have a place to sleep. The travel policy states that the preferred method of booking travel is to use a "PCard." However, when you apply for a PCard, you will be declined if you're not at the executive level. The Security department is hell bent on catching employees doing something they consider to be insecure. You will be reprimanded the moment you go outside of their strict policy no matter how harmless it is. Talented employees either quit, or are let go, and useless ones are promoted or moved into a position where they can do less damage. This results in a lot of high paid individuals who have a difficult time getting the most basic tasks completed accurately and on time. The motto of upper management seems to be "keep your head down and mouth shut." Bringing new ideas to the table, or suggesting improvements will only result in a target being placed on your back. There is a very strong "Good ol' Boy" network of leaders that are impervious to new talent, ideas, or rational thinking.

    Advice to Management

    When your most talented employee is providing you a solution, don't dismiss it because it wasn't your idea.
