    I worked at GoDaddy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people that work at Godaddy are great. Very energetic. There are some decent perks depending on what building you work in. Great job if you are going to school at the same time due to flexible schedules

    Cons

    High stress, Huge divide between management and "regular" employees, not much growth potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback from the lowest on the totem pole. Develop realistic growth opportunity plans as what was presented to me during the hiring phase was not accurate. Find people core strengths and develop them.

    Pros

    They take good care of their employees. Great benefits, awesome employee parties, good pay, and they do lots of fun stuff.

    Cons

    Everything is sales driven. I hated that people would call in with technical issues, and we were still required to try to sell to them. They are super strict with their attendance policy. God forbid you clock in one minute late or get sick.

    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at GoDaddy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Sunnyvale office is awesome - free catered lunch, snacks and drinks for days!
    Opportunity for leadership even as an intern, and free trips to the company headquarters in Arizona to meet/hear from company execs
    Flexible team, ability to work from home, and choose your own projects/tasks

    Cons

    The team was a bit new to interns and what we were capable of, and it took a while (half of my internship) to really find tasks that were most appropiate to me.
    Development cycles at least in my team were fast but a bit too heavy on the planning.
    Spotty integration with the engineers themselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more initiative in fleshing out what an internship should look like before the intern arrives (what type of problems they should have, what sort of projects are appropriate, a timeline of tasks/bugs to get familiar with the code base). Whether the internship is well suited for a potential intern is his/her decision to make - but an undefined internship will leave too many open ends that end up not helping either side.

    Former Employee - Customer Sales and Support in Hiawatha, IA

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    GoDaddy has a lot of amazing and competitive benefits. Number one, they pay for your health care! What company honestly does that? Hardly no one. Vacation, commission, PTO, and so one. Also they have great opportunities to move up in the company, even within your first 6 months! Plus, they know how to really throw an amazing holiday party!

    Cons

    If you don't like a work environment that has you sitting in front of computer, on the phone and inside a cubicle for 40 hours a week, this job isn't for you! Also, if you are someone who doesn't like jumping through security hoops and has a hard time dealing with difficult customers, don't even think about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure if an employee needs help and has been assigned a coach, make sure that coach is worth while and attentive. The company invests a lot into each employee and when one doesn't get the help they are promised, it is hard to do the job correctly.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay starts at $15 per hour (not many can compete with that) The benefits are fully paid from day one. Usually a few shifts to choose from. Great holiday party. People are pretty great. Good vibes.

    Cons

    Everyone works 1 weekend day, but that's common with most companies. Call center so it's back to back calls. Gets draining after a while. Not a fan of being a sales rep & tech support. those should be separate in my opinion. Training is okay. They teach you a little bit about the products. Hated the hosting calls. Nothing like that was taught in training. You kind of have to learn as you go.
