Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at GoDaddy full-time

Pros

I was pleasantly surprised when I met folks from GoDaddy. I grew up in big tech and to meet folks that care for each other, delight in our small business customers, who have fun and can be themselves..., it was refreshing. Why not work in a place that values you, in a place with folks you adore? I will never go back to a day job with this group of crazy, passionate folks by my side. Just like our customers, we are builders, we are hustlers and we have as much fun as we can along the way.

Cons

Some folks feel there's been a lot of change, which is true. I think most of us feel fired up for what's to come.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at Close full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company culture is really great. There's a culture around transparency and no BS. No wasting time sitting in pointless meetings. If you think something needs to change, you're encouraged to say... so. If you feel you need clarification on something (e.g. during a presentation), you're encouraged to ask. Decisions are data driven. Discussions are productive and focused on outcomes. The people I work will really are professionals and are fantastic to work with. There's nobody who could leave and I wouldn't care (and this definitely wasn't true in some previous places I've worked). I feel like I'm trusted and empowered to actually do the work that needs to be done. There's enough difficult problems that there's always something interesting to work on. I think I've literally used this phase when talking to some former colleagues: "Turns out sometimes the grass actually is greener."

Cons

None really to speak of. I feel comfortable having frank conversations about anything that comes up, and these usually turn into collaborative discussions about "how can we solve this problem?".

Advice to Management

Keep building a house we want to live in, and keep up the good work.
