    I have been working at Endurance International Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome and knowledgeable people that I can ( and have ) learned a lot from. Amazing atmosphere, workplace, and attitude! Pay is good, perks and benes are awesome, I really enjoy going to work, and I really like the people I am working with.

    Cons

    not much really... the commute? but that's not really under their control, and it's probably actually a decent one for most people in the area. The provided hardware to work with isn't great, and rather surprisingly so considering the pay is quite good. ( why not spend the few extra bucks on nice hardware to increase productivity? )

    Advice to Management

    less Chiefs, more Indians...

    I worked at Endurance International Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Cheap benefits - Free food - Amazing HR staff and policies (they don’t pinch pennies when it comes to payroll or benefits) - Unlimited vacation time - Very easy coding tasks and problems to solve - A lot of very nice people

    Cons

    - Environment has zero challenges - Software and agile process is very slow and makes you want to fall asleep - Senior engineers do coding that newbs could do yet they are labeled as senior - Pay is kinda low - A lot of inexperienced management - Zero challenge in the day to day which makes it hard to stay awake - Teams work collocated but yet still stick to Google chat for all communication - Managers have no... idea what you do or how much you are doing - Managers just want you to come into the office so that they can see you and know you are working - Working remote in a regular basis not allowed or promoted because then management would have to actually do their job and know what you are doing

    Advice to Management

    Let people work remote, stop over complicating simple website work and trust your employees more. If you don’t trust them to get the work done then don’t hire them in the first place

    I worked at Endurance International Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    catered lunches random trinkets parental leave of 5 weeks!

    Cons

    Code in big rooms with everyone looking at you. Noisy co-workers Changing expectations Changing job descriptions to get rid of people Bad managers Little to no documentation Knowledge is held by about three people who cannot be disturbed for questions Advancements are random and mysterious People are randomly fired People are quitting Company is lead at the top by inexperienced engineers who leave in 6... months (probably because they know they won't get in trouble if they quit as soon as they realize things are bad.) Mid-level managers are technically excellent at coding but poor at managing. I would have quit sooner but they kept me so busy I could not look for another job. They keep growing by acquisition--meaning they buy hosting companies and then wonder why their stock price is so low. They are so highly leveraged by debt that if anything goes wrong they will fold.

    I have been working at Endurance International Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    * Provo office has catered lunches while SLC has snacks * Tuition reimbursement, awesome healthcare benefits * Utah-based leadership cares about people

    Cons

    * Teams spread across multiple offices each having their own culture and identity from each other is taxing. The Salt Lake City office is more liberal, upbeat, and extroverted while the Provo office is more conservative, reserved, and introverted. You can be on a team where you are the only member in one office while everyone else is in another. * Massive, convoluted code base * Some high-level engineers are... resistant to change, specifically modern programming practices. * For Provo office in particular, many engineers measures success by story point completion instead of real world metrics (see measure what matters by John Doerr). Story points are valuable in estimation and planning but does not convey the impact of work done. * You can easily feel like you are a "lifer" on a rat-wheel. Many engineers in Provo will quote how work is their vacation and their real job is when they get home. This smells like an imbalance between work and life * The SLC upbeat culture is diminishing each day. All managers that had cultivated that culture are gone and will likely to continue to digress.

    Pros

    Love the company and the work. Fun projects and teams.

    Cons

    EIG was an awesome place to work for until the acquisition of Constant Contact, once that happened it turned into "all hands on CTCT". Great people were pushed out or left because of the acquisition. They decided to get rid of the best Technical Recruiter the company had for years and now we're getting terrible candidates for our open roles. The stuff going on for the individual brands is great and all the negatives... are having to deal with the revolving door of people in leadership roles and having to kiss the feet of all CTCT execs to appease them even though they were acquired...bleh Also, pay here is terrible and not competitive in the tech industry. I get calls and emails all day about jobs paying a lot more than I currently make.

    Jeff Fox, separate from CTCT and make EIG great again...

    Pros

    Nothing. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Pay is below average and benefits is ok. Manager was crazy about micro-management. He monitored you and paid more attention to trivial things like how often you check your personal cell phone than your real performance. The manager did not try to motivate you for better performance or guide you to grow skill sets or advance your career. He was more interested in how many hours you were on computer, how often you... checked your personal cell, and etc. He even encouraged whistle blowing among co-workers.

    Your feedback is appreciated, and we are sorry to hear you had a less than satisfactory experience at Endurance. The vast majority of our management staff pride themselves on being leaders who delegate and trust their teams to do a job well done, providing guidance and growth opportunities ...

    Pros

    Free Lunch. Smart, fun people.

    Cons

    Management is always talking about great things that you are going to work on, which you never end up doing because everything gets put on hold for the whatever the daily crisis is. Promotions don't come easily as higher level jobs get taken by new people from acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Take a break from buying all of your customers and start nurturing the ones you have. A GOOD company should be able to grow a customer base naturally.

    Pros

    People I work with are fantastic, good benefits, free lunch.

    Cons

    The company has a lot of teams doing a lot of things but overall lacks cohesion which can make things frustrating. They also don't seem to be willing to pay enough to attract the best talent, the lack of pay has me on this site looking elsewhere.

    I worked at Endurance International Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The bosses don't understand technology and the team is miniscule, so you're free to move things in whatever direction you choose.

    Cons

    Bosses spend 6-8 hours a day working for other companies, so you have to do their jobs for them; they expect you to turn water to wine on a daily basis while doing the work of four or five other people; if you do solid work day in and day out and don't show it off you get interrogated; everybody gets treated like the bosses' personal assistants; bosses change direction all the time depending on with exec is yelling... at them the most (usually it's the biz dev guy but they seem to rotate); bosses and other brands brick around their teams constantly, don't listen to their people and talk back when the team is trying to help save them from themselves. No opportunity for promotion, no continuing education, you're not allowed to take your vacation time, and if you're not racing to the bottom with them, you're an outcast. Trust/honesty/loyalty are nonexistant. They truly believe profit comes from having senior backend engineers change text colors on landing pages and demand business reporting on a daily to hourly basis - which they use to micromanage you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people; don't chase shiny objects; do your own jobs so other people don't have to; focus priorities on core business rather than branching all over the place. Don't run everybody to their limits 24/7/365.
