Positive Outlook

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

Pros

Positive team members, fun atmosphere, decent equipment (monitors, computers, headsets), overtime available, regular feedback, concerned managers, paid time off, significant daycare benefit, constant internal job postings.

Cons

Daily sales expectations, insufficient training provided (learn as you go philosophy, not your job to fix all customer issues attitude), schedule changes with very little notice, constantly working in high call queue, shared cubicles, not enough time afforded off phones for product training and development.

Advice to Management

Be proactive at capturing employees' strengths and putting them in areas where they can be most successful rather than seeing them struggle in their present circumstance until they either fail and quit or get fired or manage to be proficient at it before moving them around.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are still pretty good

    Cons

    Any job worth having is handed out to friends of the C-suite. Rare internal hires are poached, not posted for anyone to apply. HR makes big promises but does just about nothing other than recruit & fire (oh, and change their name to "People Ops".) The common thinking seems to be that if you're not from Silicon Valley you must be an idiot. Executives are too busy having offsite meetings to actually recognize that they're not making the changes they think they are.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

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

    Pros

    A nice job to have on your resume

    Cons

    You have to actually have worked there to be able to put Godaddy on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your current course because failure is an option now that Bob Parson's is gone. Bob new how to keep a constant flow of new crappy products that customers would buy thinking it would help their business. Fortunately for Godaddy the average customer just bought things because the checkout process is impossible to navigate.
