"GoDaddy was a good place to work."

Former Employee - SQL Developer in Scottsdale, AZ
Former Employee - SQL Developer in Scottsdale, AZ

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

Pros

The work environment was positive, and the management (that I dealt with, at least) was competent and receptive to input/suggestions. Colleagues seemed to be well-chosen, and were pleasant to work with.

Cons

I don't have a lot of cons to list about working here, except perhaps that there was a bit more bureaucracy than I would have liked, but that's hard to avoid in larger organizations.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for Engineers. Great benefits. Unbeatable Vacation time at 4 weeks after your first year and 6 weeks after 5 years, especially for Phoenix Metro area! Flexible work schedule, possibility to work from home permanently for "privileged" people. Most engineers can work from time-to-time from home. Overall an "above average" to "very good" place to work.

    Cons

    Stressful often and "Very stressful" for some months of the year. Many people "tire out" quickly depending on which group they are in. Your work life depends on your manager's management style. Could be too challenging for some people, for most people you don't move around you could start in the wrong group and end up miserable. If you end up in a cool spot you should stay there but will sacrifice learning new stuff and possibly your career goals.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more consistent about management style and flexibility For example. if a team member works from home all members should be allowed to work from home, no questions asked or special requests required. Management should only require "extra hours" on special occasions like a very important deployment, It should not be considered the "norm"or expected to work 55-60 hours a week just to finish low or medium priority projects, this ruins morale, especially when more staff should be added to a team.
