I worked at GoDaddy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay, if you're saavy and can make the right moves. some friendly, genuine people amidst a see of sharks.

Cons

Cut-throat culture with people stepping on each other to chase few rewards and praise from management. Constant fear of being fired. big talk about innovation from the grassroots but reality is a strictly management led regime with tight deadlines on crappy products, very little actual innovation. Loyalty is rewarded more than merit.

Advice to Management

Change everything. Parsons being gone is a great start.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits are still good, and work/life balance is the level you set.

    Cons

    Culture is that of a marketing firm, and not an engineering tech company, so that is good or bad depending on your role. Benefits greatly diminishing w/new owners. Not a good sign for employees when every year the head of benefits gets promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Shaving benefits won't get you where you want to go.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cheap lunches, Lots of technology, fast paced. Average to high pay.

    Cons

    Senior management only wants "yes" men working for them. You cannot contradict or challenge any of the unrealistic goals or demands without punishment. And don't think about proving your point with valid logistics or evidence as it will only annoy them further.

    Advice to Management

    Sure you make it great for call center staff, but those who support the infrastructure are not supported. Get off your high horse and listen to your staff on good ideas and stop promoting the bad ones. Just because Bob has an idea, doesn't mean it is the best thing since sliced bread.
