I worked at GoDaddy full-time (less than a year)

Pros

2 dollars lunches, and great training alone with some very Knowledgable people. Great Opportunity to learn useful information.

Cons

I was lied to about my base salary by a recuirter about the over night pay. If you don't have a family or a lot of responsibility then this entry level works. Benefite are not as good as they claim if you have multi dependents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure your recruiters are honest it reperesents your company in the wrong light. Also please give a straight pay for working over nights.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    OK place to work. Watch the metrics. There is no "fudge" factor when it comes to meeting them.

    Pros

    Good training. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Metrics are hard to meet consistantly. They call it "consultive" selling. It is really "Up" selling.
