    I took a gamble coming here, and the gamble has paid off.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGoDaddy is in a changing state since Blake Irving took over and for the better. I like the feeling of actually being able to make an impact then just feeling like another number. Seeing the transition of the company and actually being someone here makes me proud to be apart of this

    ConsHuge transitions are happening daily, so changes are bound to happen

    Fun place to work!

    Bilingual Technical Support and Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Tempe, AZ

    ProsThey make sure you go through extensive training so that you know what you're doing before you start on the phones!!!

    The people there are great! The management is definitely dedicated to making this a fun and stable environment for everyone that works there.

    ConsYou have to start off normally by working at a later shift but with time they move you into better schedules. I guess thats the only thing I ever complained about! I only left because I was able to get a job doing what I went to school for!

    Very happy, and couldn't be more excited about recent changes...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsManagement believes in me and trusts me. Dynamic — it's impossible to be bored.

    ConsDirection, particularly from the older regime, can be somewhat shortsighted and not play to the more important long game.

    Hard work and intelligence are rewarded at GoDaddy

    Technical Support and Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsGood CRM to pull up customer accounts, lots of overtime available, expensive items such as servers and SSLs that are sold regularly. I made $70,000 per year by the time I left because I liked to do overtime and I sold big-ticket items. Healthy $2 lunches. Management would let you do your thing as long as you hit minimum quota. GoDaddy lets you sell hosting for 10 years if customer wanted it, which translates into a big commission.

    ConsGoDaddy does sell a few worthless products like "Certified Domain" and "Business Registration" that I thought were rip-offs. But I just didn't sell them at all, and I was able to make good money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work

    was a great place when i was there in '07

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosbeach balls and competitive up-sale races, $$$

    Consheard it got worse after i left and management started being unreasonable
    an hr lady lied to me once about knowing my family members to gain leverage so she could force me to "cheer up" on my worst day(non work related) there
    they gave my temp-to-perm sup the largest team on the floor so she pressured us better reps to train and compensate for the weak reps

    Advice to Senior Managementchill out

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Recruiter (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGoDaddy is focused not only on improvements for their customers but also dedicated to constantly improving the experience that the employees have. It is on a level like I have never seen before. Very impressive

    ConsI could not give a con for this organization. GoDaddy is always working to be better then they were the day before.
