    I have been working at Bluehost full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very stable position with a mature process. Scrum is well developed there and working very well. There are lots of mature teams.

    Cons

    They pay a little low on the lowest end of market rate, and this leads to lots of turnover as people take better paid positions at other companies. You are rewarded with lots of good perks and stability by working for them though.

    I worked at Bluehost full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, promotion opportunities, paid training

    Cons

    Little company direction, one day it's a sales focus then survey then call time. Hard to plan when the goals aren't set before you. Sales was required from Technical Support. Even though company had a sales team they wanted more money. Customers didn't like being sold things when they just want help fixing things.

    I worked at Bluehost full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some nice people to work with

    Cons

    Incohesive codebase that's difficult to troubleshoot or add new features Many systems run out of date software Always reinventing the wheel instead of utilizing what's already out there (and their implementations.were often worse) Codebase doesn't follow best practices No clear ownership of codebase and products For many co-workers, they are there to collect a paycheck and put in low quality in their work which makes the jobs of others more difficult and unnecessary A lot of egos get in the way when making decisions and delivering software High turnover of talented and good-hearted engineers because previously mentioned cons are not going away Draconian HR

    I worked at Bluehost full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Semi-flexible shifts. Decent PTO plans. This won't let me post without at least 5 words and it can't count

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees. Very heavy workloads. No room to advance. Pitiful raises

    I worked at Bluehost full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bluehost uses opensource software, so most problems can be solved via google search of a solution has been posted.

    Cons

    Everything is opensource, and the devs are too busy with new projects to fix anything.

    Pros

    Loved my time at bluehost. They took pretty good care of their people and the team I worked with was amazing. Great flexible and unlimited vacation policy.

    Cons

    things did change when they were acquired by endurance international. At some point the ceo of endurance decides to lay off virtually everyone in the Utah office. I was among those laid off and that was... rough. When it came down to it endurance would take advantage of and screw over their people when they thought it would benefit them. But the bluehost ceo really tried to take care of us with amazing severance packages and such.

    I worked at Bluehost full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay was decent. Benefits were good. Catered lunches. Random trinkets. Occasional remote work.

    Cons

    Worst management ever! Changing random expectations. Always feel like you might be fired. Random firings. Random quitting! Tries to make everyone become jack-of-all-trades to the point where no one knows anything to any depth. Corporate leadership is changing constantly because they realize the boat is sinking. Stock price keeps dropping. At some point this company will go bust. New (bad) product ideas are being pushed for development all the time. Developers keep getting yanked from one project to another. Projects being abandoned all the time. Too many band-aids on old projects. Middle management is being yanked about and upper management is clueless. No trust for employees. No training for new employees. No usable documentation. This is easily the worst place I have ever worked and I have worked for over 20 companies. Do not work for these clowns.
