    Pros

    Great benefits excellent working environment and good management for employees. If you're willing to work hard and make good connections with customers you will do good bonus wise and do good with the company.

    Cons

    Some of the shifts can be a bit ridiculous. You get your schedule after training and some of the scheduled are a little much. Working into the AM of the middle of the nights. But if you have a good schedule it's excellent.

    Pros

    You get a good healthcare plan and 401k

    Cons

    Job has no work/life balance in SSL/HE due to shift bid
    Insane sales pressure
    Customers are not savvy enough to use our products and consistently sold the wrong things
    Customers will be demeaning, abusive, and rude and you can't defend yourself
    Bonus pay has been reduced year in and year out in my dept.
    Upper management doesn't care about that at all
    New tools have made doing the job harder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stop trying to pretend you can make a good living here.
    Stop pretending every product GoDaddy makes is flawless and customers need everything we make

    Pros

    The holiday party is amazing, and there are many opportunities for management to show appreciation to employees. The company is very philanthropic, and the products are pretty good. Time off is good and benefits are very generous.

    Cons

    The management moves very slowly with things, and sometimes makes unrealistic promises that the underlings are then forced to comply with, even if it is physically and emotionally demanding. There are many people in roles that they are not suited or prepared for, and it makes everyone else's job much harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to the work experience of all employees, not just high-level ones or customer-facing ones. Get rid of people who are not doing their job/performing so that the rest of us can move up and get stuff done.
