    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, people that want to be there, great atmosphere filled with optimism and positivity. Tons of professional development and technical training.

    Cons

    There are no cons so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Don't let the IPO change what GoDaddy is about. Show the shareholders that doing things our way is profitable.

    Pros

    Fun Company to work for. Things may have changed since 2011. I have heard things are much more "corporate." Base Pay range from 13.00 hr + depending on performance and duration of employment. If you are great at sales and customer service you can double your pay from bonuses. When the founder of the company was heavily involved with operations of the company, life was TERRIFIC! I mean I loved my job and worked my butt off for the success of the company. Not sure what the new company culture and management are like currently.

    Cons

    The frantic pace of incoming phone calls can be brutal. Micro-Management by management can be a drag, you basically needed permission to get up to go to the restroom, or lectured by management if you took more than 3 minutes. Bonus structures constantly changing can affect morale. Just when you seem to be getting really great and making a nice living, they typically would make it harder to hit their metrics and for less money.


  3. Good company/Bad culture - heading in the wrong direction

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

    Pros

    Great benefits - On par with any job I've ever had Good pay - Industry standard base, can increase exponentially High bonus-ability - Lots of ways to increase pay through hard work and applying sales tactics Fun people - diverse backgrounds and good hearted colleagues Good Tech - good company overall, some downfalls (see Cons)

    Cons

    Culture is terrible - Since going public we have struggled with identity. Balancing the good-hearted and fun ways of a few years ago with the hard charging, metrics driven, publicly traded company has definitely hit the culture where it hurts - with people and interactions with customers. Beware though, not much room to grow in the new culture and upper management cares little about your outside life (READ: They'll push you until you fold or drown yourself in the corporate cool-aid and stop carrying about anything non-GoDaddy).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people and the sales will follow. Trying to "trick" and "push" people into products, bad sales tactics all around, and shady ways of hiring/promoting/firing people destroyed the culture. Instead of learning from the bad practices, the full corporate mentality has taken sway. STOP being Microsoft, GoDaddy was fun and awesome to work for a few years ago for a reason - we didn't try to be Microsoft, we tried to beat them with our own way of doing things.

    Pros

    It's a place with good people and a fun and progressive culture. The work is enjoyable, There are advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    While it is progressive and cool in many ways, it's also big and is still working on being able to react quickly when things need to change.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open-minded and look for the best way to do things, rather than letting a desire to protect older ways of doing things stifle creativity and expansion.

    Pros

    Health benefits, vacation time, sick time.

    Cons

    Being female and working at Godaddy means you get belittled and sexually harassed by your colleagues. Of course, if you say anything, HR gets involved, and it's not difficult to figure out who made the complaint seeing as how there are only a small number of females working in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making bonus possibilities harder to reach.
