    Pros

    They have an extremely aggressive benefits package and opportunity for advancement from every level of employment. They have great incentives and are a leader in their market. The growth in domain ownership and the world class hosting we provide has made GoDaddy the number one registrar of domain names and the worlds largest hosting provider.

    Cons

    Some of their policies are a bit strict.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Be part of a great success story. It is amazing to see how this started as a small company of a few people in a house to what has become the dominant provider of Internet services to the small business market.

    Cons

    Life balance is not at the top of the list. You need to be motivated by challenges and accomplishments NOT entitlement of being treated like a volunteer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing business the right way - leading with the customer. That is what has taken GoDaddy to #1 in the World in a few different categories.

    Pros

    GoDaddy offers great benefits and growth opportunities. There are all kinds of languages and technologies used at the company and leadership opportunities regularly come up for software engineers looking to advance to management. The pace is steady and the people are great. I have learned a lot working with my peers.

    Cons

    The company is going through growing pains and still trying to find the magic formula of how to spread resources across maintenance, repair, and future growth. The process of software development is different for every department, is changing constantly, and is always in under a microscope. Change is a way of life at GoDaddy and will continue to be for a very long time.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    The best part about this company is the almost every little step you take to do your job better is rewarded. The Sales and management team have put an extraordinary amount of time into devising a system that rewards you for positive action. At my last job I found (also a call center) i found that my taskings were increased on a monthly/bimonthly basis, and that my pay was actually being decreased!!! Any job is hard if you do it to the employer requested standard, and all companies will steadily raise the bar to increase your performance. However, not all companies compensate you when they raise that bar. The money makes it worth while.

    Cons

    The only negative aspect is the strict company policies. These are fairly unbending unless you have a valid reason (including evidence) of extenuating circumstances. However, the fact that i get compensated fairly probably has alot to do with the fact that this company will remove undesirable employees like a malignant tumor if it finds you to be lacking in a substantial work or personal ethic. At the end of the day, do your job and you'll do just fine.

    Advice to Management

    create a system to award inbound employees for sales to executive account customers. Our only motivation to actively consult with these customers is because we want to keep our job. The current policy for addressing these customers works, but it could be so much better.

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

    Pros

    40 hours of hard work, fair pay, and leave your work at the door. Great benefits, great job for busy bodies who work to make it happen. Great products with loose refund policy - all tools given to give every customer a great experience.

    Cons

    Advanced based on who you know, not what you've done. Unfortunately those that move up are those who know how to schmooze, not necesarily those that are the best at what they do, or most respected by coworkers. Bonus changes every year - although 80% will make less from the structure, arrogantly spun as a GoDaddy positive. Uneducated management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let these Private Equity guys eat at the soul of GoDaddy. Nothing is more important than keeping the front-line who communicates/sells to customers happy. Continuous cuts to bonuses/salaries will turn the GoDaddy Cash Cow into a dog.

    Pros

    Exciting leaders in technology and the digital name space. Great benefits, awesome contests and prizes, a great culture with a "can do" attitude. I really appreciate the opportunity, it's taught me a lot in life as well as in business and helped me establish partnerships that I think will last a lifetime.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything negative as long as your put your work into perspective.
