Pros

Godaddy.com has an incredible vision that will make it worth your while to stay for the long term. They care deeply about their customers and their needs. Their suite of products is unparallelled in the industry and you absolutely can not beat their support. Their employees are well trained and their products almost sell themselves. Their bonus structure is also very generous.

Cons

Middle management lacks vision. They are often just trying to keep their own jobs by disciplining their Supervsiors whenever they feel like it, even if it isn't a good reason, just to show that they are superior. With the exception of a few, most managers (above supervisors) have zero compassion for their people and could care less about them. It makes for a stressful and de-moralizing work environment.

Advice to Management

Try caring about your people more. They are the ones carrying out your mission, if you don't give them direction and just tell them everything they are doing wrong, you will never get what you want out of them.

    Pros

    Company is only 15 years old and grew rapidly. Because of this, the initial benefits are generous. Incoming employees are vested in 401k after 1 year, given 3 weeks vacation and accrues up to 6 after 4 years employment.. Company culture is almost too casual with dress policy allowing shorts and flip-flops.

    Cons

    Company is struggling with it's identity as it grows from an entrepreneurial venture into a real company. The benefits mentioned above will most likely decrease or change as the company has new equity owners. Advancement opportunities are becoming less frequent for internal personnel as the company has shifted to outside talent. Currently there is a real struggle between the internally developed management and those with real talent from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Get some vision and figure out where the company is going. Now that the "push to sell and cash out options" is over, what's the goal? What are we doing?
