    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Been at GoDaddy for over 5yrs and it has been a great learning experience for sure. Benefits are awesome and the people are great as well. Plenty of opportunities to learn all kinds of new technology. GoDaddy has been very good on training and continuing education benefits.

    Cons

    Growth here is difficult, as that when people into certain positions that makes it very tough to move into something else cause they tend to stay there for a while. Work life balance isn't too bad, expect a lot of on call and some late nights when things have to be fixed or updated. The job can be stressful at time, but the end it pays off. GoDaddy expects a lot from it's employees for sure, "Work Hard, Play Hard"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on career advancement and opportunities, seems over the past few years it has been way more difficult to move up or into something more challenging and people tend to languish in a dead end position with no hopes of moving forward, this results in people looking for other jobs elsewhere and we lose good seasoned talent at that point.

    Pros

    The opportunity for advancement is limitless as long as you are ambitious. After 90 days, you can shadow other departments and apply for what you want.

    Cons

    This is a 24 hour operation, so some employees end up working holidays if there aren't enough volunteers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to request the feedback of the agents, so the company can continue grow and become more refined.

    Pros

    It's a decent place to work. From my knowledge not exceptional compared to other companies of this kind.

    Cons

    As others have said, you need to provide technical support while trying to sell, sell, sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One or the other. Tech support or sales.

    Pros

    The company is making money

    Cons

    The company is staffing like they aren't making any money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company was really great to work for but your drive to corporatize the organization is making it difficult to be excited about working here.

    I worked at GoDaddy (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I left, there was never any outsourcing and buy vs build was an honest question. Benefits were stellar and the staff was full of smart people. Probably one of the best IT shops in Arizona.

    Cons

    Sold to investors, quality of work started to go down hill to support cost cutting to improve balance sheets for IPO. Work/life balance was talked about but not always supported. Telecommuting was generally frowned upon. Also there are never enough parking spots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring Bob back.

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

    Pros

    I wake up every morning energized to come to work at GoDaddy - I feel like I have the BEST job in the world because of the way my manager makes me feel. I am empowered, supported, and given the tools and development I need to succeed and given the freedom to make mistakes (although I try to avoid them when I can!). I learn from everything and I am given the latitude to try new things. I love working at GoDaddy because of the challenging work and the PEOPLE. Our culture here is fun and the people are like family to me. I am always learning and constantly growing because of our amazing culture and the people here are supportive, fun, and intelligent. I am ALL IN because of the amazing culture, the opportunities to learn and grow, and because of the people. Great job opportunities. The culture and values at GoDaddy are positive and inspiring - we're here to make an impact and I feel a sense of pride.

    Cons

    We are still building our internal infrastructure - so we're scrappy - kind of like a start-up at scale. It's cool because you can make an impact and not feel like a COG in a wheel at a bigger tech company. GoDaddy still has a smaller-start-up feel - which I love.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees and focus on creating an employee-first culture. I love it here and hope that we continue to live our values and share our awesome culture with the world.
