    I worked at GoDaddy (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and free health insurance, made some really nice bonus money.

    Cons

    Managers do not take sup calls.

    Advice to Management

    Many people would still have jobs with you, if you did not refuse sup calls.

    Pros

    - Great culture and environment - Very flexible and agile - Taking right efforts to write correct code

    Cons

    - Too many legacy applications - Each team within the company acts as a small start-up so there is no company wide standards and interacting with other team can be overwhelming process

    Sell. Sell, Sell. This is a Sales job.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Potential to make lots of money. Top performers make about 11K per month, Average billing reps make around 4k per month.

    Cons

    This is a sales position. Pretty much every position at Godaddy is a sales position. If you are not comfortable at pitching new products of extending length of services with customers, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Work on retaining good employees that are solid performers. Don't write them up for a final warning because they have a medical emergency (car accident, kidney stone, stroke, etc...) and have no sick time available.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good co-cohesion in teams. You can progress up the IT ladder which is nice and if you are a hard worker you will really shine against others.

    Cons

    The company is still growing quickly so there will always be growing pains to try and make the company and environment within the company better

    Advice to Management

    Communication with your team is key and if you push your hard workers you will get plenty in return. Keep running the company great and keep everyone happy!

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth and to make a lot of money. Good pay and benefits from day one. Great cafeteria and lunch choices. Rewarding environment.

    Cons

    Very strict on sales quotas, very strict on attendance. Whether you had a heart attack or lost a leg, if you don't have time it does not matter. You're out. Unrealistic expectations of talk time in balance with meetings, and supervisor requested off-call times. As a company, it lacks in empathy.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your employees' needs and not just the customers' needs. Work on empathy and understanding what your employees are saying.

    Pros

    Decent salary, large company benefits.

    Cons

    The management style of the team I was on was less than great... too many people were assigned to a part of a project which created conflicts on an already stretched timeline. Too much focus on Jira tasks, not enough on code quality or review.

    Advice to Management

    Go beyond testing as a statistic and implement quality reviews. Stop trying to assign multiple teams to a part of a project when the reality of a timeline won't fit the management desires.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a fast paced environment, fun culture, and great benefits Go Daddy is an Amazing place to work. The people you work with are by far some of the best people you can ever work with.

    Cons

    If you're not a sales person this will not be a fun job. If you are not great at multi-tasking this will not be a fun job. if you can't handle constant change this will not be a good job for you.
