    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

    I can't find anything positive to say, the training was aweful, the supervisors were aweful, they treated everyone like garbage.

    Cons

    They would not let you transfer - made you make customers hold sometimes for over and hour and would instruct you the whole time to go back and sell them something, and even though they knew the problem would be outside of your area at times would force you over and over to do things they knew would upset customers, then blame you for the bad call.

    Advice to Management

    LOL, Management, what a hoax. You have people that have a background in working as a retail cashier and could care less about anything other than getting out of doing any work as managers and trainers.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. (Can't complain about free health insurance for employees!) Quarterly team-building events are nice.

    Cons

    Very silo-oriented culture. Nearly impossible to move out of the 'selling/customer service' silo and into 'technical/corporate'. Opportunities (to advance or keep your job) subject to strong favoritism.
    Focus is on quantity, not quality. For web design department, that is a mistake. Company is now dishing out generic, pre-made, pre-populated pages, yet still presenting itself as custom design service.
    ** If you are a designer, consider if you can sacrifice your creativity before applying here. **
    "Design" work is limited to changing a company's name and logo in the pre-made site templates.
    Routinely low customer satisfaction scores speak volumes.

    Advice to Management

    "Growing pains" are to be expected. However, what is happening in web design team is beyond that. The department used to be a team that other GoDaddy employees aspired to join. Shady values and practices of PWS management (Supervisors, Managers, Director) are taking their toll and should be closely scrutinized. Employees are now being told by Supervisors to not voice their opinion(s) about the company.

    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

    Upper management doesn't care about that at all
    New tools have made doing the job harder

    Advice to Management

    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
