What Employees Say
I have been working at GoDaddy full-time for more than 3 years
Company is poised to continue growing itself as the leader in empowering everyday entrepreneurs with a crisp vision/strategy and a dedication to serving the customer. The pay and the benefits are... competitive, but by far, the best thing about the company are the people who drink in the culture and embody the values in their everyday jobs. This starts with our leadership team who better exemplify our values than anyone else. I'm proud to work at a company that strives to help our go-getters by letting them focus on being the best and letting us take care of the rest. Can't recommend GoDaddy as a company enough. Truly a benchmark in employee satisfaction. Obviously I work there, so fair to say I'm biased, but I wouldn't be working there if I didn't feel treated right or buy into their vision.
None to note - pay is competitive, leadership is transparent, vision is clear and set us on a path for continued growth. Very happy with GD as a company to work for.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work. Nothing I love more than listening to the stories of random people I run into (Uber drivers, restaurant workers, etc.) who run their main businesses or "side hustles" via... GoDaddy and feel supported by our suite of products. It makes me beam with pride to know that we are supporting the glue that holds our great country together (i.e,. entrepreneurs). Keep treating your employees as key business partners in the strategic vision of the company and they will continue to deliver with hard work and loyalty.
I worked at OpenMarket full-time for more than a year
I loved working at OpenMarket. It was, hands down, the best working experience of my career. I had never heard of it prior to applying and I'm glad I gave it a chance. OM is definitely a technology... company (that may be obvious) but unlike the reviews you may have read about the tech behemoths in Seattle, you are more than a number. Here, you have the opportunity to generate value as part of a highly cohesive and collaborative team, and not just within your own department. The work culture is AWESOME. The benefits are fantastic (PTO, sick time, volunteer hours, etc) and the perks are pretty sweet as well (fully stocked kitchen, regularly scheduled employee events, legitimately useful swag, etc). Above all, the work life balance reigns supreme. While the PTO is not unlimited, it certainly feels that way. Everyone, regardless of seniority or position, is encouraged to take time off work to travel and live their lives outside of work. Plus, you are free to work remotely from your house or wherever you want and no one is standing by to make sure you're working exactly 40 hours. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of times when I worked long days and I'm sure I wasn't the only one. But it didn't make me angry or resentful; I was happy to be there. I made some great friends during my time and I will miss my teammates.
The only con I can think of relates to the complete turnover of management in the Finance org. This isn't necessarily a negative (depending on your perspective) but it certainly affects an already... small team, from multiple standpoints. Changes in management style coupled with the implementation of new initiatives and expectations, within a short period of time, created an immense sense of pressure on a team where there are already too few people to perform the work. Not to mention, a company that openly embraces diversity replaced the only two female leaders of the department, with men. A small team that may have been a 50/50 split has now shifted considerably. For me personally, as a woman, this is obviously disappointing but fortunately it hasn't affected my overall opinion of the company, which is generally very good.
Advice to Management
I would guess most people want to write something about Amdocs here because they kind of run the show, depending on the department, so my only real advice on that front would be to simplify the ways... that Amdocs is involved in OpenMarket's operations or limit it so it's not as intrusive. I can think of too many instances where Amdocs processes and procedures severely inhibited my ability to accomplish what would otherwise be an uncomplicated task.
