    I worked at Endurance International Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Endurance will initially continue to pay benefits you were receiving at the company that they acquire. They provide a decent severance package.

    Cons

    Endurance philosophy is to squeeze profit margins from their latest acquisitions so that they can leverage this cash flow to buy new acquisitions. This means that they will cut (possibly stop) development, remove , reduce staff, reduce benefits, close offices. Nothing is done toward career development or skills development at endurance. Decision making is centralized at the Burlington, MA headquarters. Knowledge loss is rampant, skeleton crews are left to support many systems that they may not have ever had any experience with. You will likely take on more work (from people who have left and whose jobs are not rehired for).

    Advice to Management

    Management runs the company like it is a 100 person company (when it is 3500+). As such all decisions are made at the executive level for issues that should be made at lower levels were knowledge of the matters is greatest. More needs to be done to integrate acquisitions with the company and empower them with decision making to make their products work. All in all more money needs to be spent on R&D. Perhaps more attention should be given to organic growth and less to growth by acquisition.
