Pros

Like it or not, they know how to run a company. It is easy to pick some great leaders to follow in order to mimic their paths to success. If you are willing to really work and put your company hat on, you will indeed be rewarded for it.

With such a large company, it's also easy to find talent within the employees. This will help to find the most efficient ways with which to handle any project.

When Web.com decides to try something new, they really try it. If that fails, they try it again. They make very sure that something will simply not work before they give up; and they do this while keeping productivity and resources in check.

They handle money like no company I've worked for. Even at their height during my employment, frivolous spending wasn't something you would see. David Brown has an incredible business mind about him, and the leaders he chooses are nothing short of super-competent.

Professionally, one should strive to run an operation the way they do.

Cons

Personally, this company is disgusting. The thing is, they are really good at what they do, but horrible at what they claim to do. Their services are extremely misleading to small business owners that don't otherwise know better. They make strong claims and, in some cases outright lies in regard to their services and products.

Their employees aren't treated very well in regard to compensation or respect. This is especially true for the low-level employees that take strong initiative. Until you are noticed and accommodated for a good job your job life is very difficult to stick with.

They mis a lot of opportunity to monetize aspects of potential services, as well as promote better customer relations. I can personally attest that their clients desire several things from them, are willing to pay for them but simply aren't getting. And when they ask for these things, they aren't treated very well.

Advice to Management

Learn to think outside the box. You really need to consider customer relations while your skeletons are somewhat hidden. This industry is becoming more transparent by the moment, and a detailed inside look would prove to be a problem if viewed by too many customers.

You really need to come off that wallet. You've let a ton of people leave that could have helped drive Web.com further. This is the sole reason I don't personally come back or answer your calls anymore. You will have to learn to either compensate your people appropriately.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    None that come to mind.

    Cons

    Working for jerks like Hyun Jin O, Director of Network Operations. He is the perfect example of the Peter Principle. Promoted beyond his competence.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Hyun Jin O and make sure that any future employers are made aware of his hostility and incompetence toward workers.
