      Excited and proud to be a part of the GoDaddy family!

      Pros

      Culture, culture, culture. All employees exhibit the Company's values-we are passionate, fearless, driven, take ownership, collaborative, innovative, fast-paced, and our clients are priority! Results. Our growth and financials say it all, but what that doesn't illustrate is our strong relationships with clients, stakeholders, industry, and the market not to mention our positive impact on global communities.

      Cons

      As of now, I have no downsides to note. Onboarding was top-notch, my team is amazing, and at the end of the day, the Company truly cares about YOU.

      Big company, small and fun culture with start up vibe!

      Pros

      Worked for a lot of companies, but some of the great things here is the support and growth minded approach management has with employees. There is no hard, unrealistic core goals to meet, do your work, be transparent everyone has fun. Great equity stock incentives annually coupled with a healthy bonus keeps a lot of the people sticking around.

      Cons

      Teams here have a lot of tenure, so it can be challenging to run and manage new initiatives and get everyone to buy-off on things. There is a lot of big titles, but little seen of many SLT's. Would like to see more involvement from above and more championing of new policies and changes from them. Can be hard when you're dealing with members who've been with the company for 10+ years. Also, some of the tools we use are dated and there isn't a lot of options if you're someone who came from the software realm and had the luxury of using new, cutting edge apps to do your work. Not a bad thing just a bit of a shift. Compensation is probably one of the lowest I've seen for the title also, but considering the business is still growing, perhaps it will become more competitive over time.

      Great experience but zero growth opportunity

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      CEO, Aman, really cares. He’s cultivated a culture that puts people and human interactions first. Which gives us a lot of room to be ourselves and have genuine interactions with colleagues and clients. -The company makes good strides to improve the core product (but other offerings don’t live up the hype and actually cause churn) -$150 quarterly WFH reimbursement - Employee stock program

      Cons

      -Growth is nonexistent. A lot of lip service when it comes addressing this issue. They made some attempts at addressing this with temp. “intern” type roles but there were only 10 roles available and each one received hundreds of applicants for roles that were eager to take a temporary pay cut for something new and to gain experience. They also offered LinkedIn learning course as another bandaid. -A la carte services are oversold and under deliver (GoDaddy social). They can’t even get the most basic function correct, which is actually just being able to service social media accounts. -They harp on being customer focused but let their guides sell a la cart services that they know nothing about (which doesn’t set up the customer or the team receiving the account), they don’t have a proper channel for the sale or post sale flow

      Bad Company, Compensation here is a lie, Nothing but stress and unprofessionalism

      Pros

      Benefits seem good. But be careful signing up. You will be charged for months prior in one big surprise massive deduction without having those benefits.

      Cons

      Everything is a downside here. Hours are extremely long with no breathing room in between calls, the way you are treated by fellow senior employees, lack of fair treatment, lack of HR support, lack of help with anything really. If you want to work in a hostile environment and be stressed out everyday this is the place for you. Customers are treated as numbers and dollar signs only. Real lack of any support for products besides help articles. No billing dept, no actual support dept except through chat. Most agents burn through calls to try and meet metrics (you'll see each customer has called in 5-6 times that day without being helped). Metrics are very high and you will be given the "if you can't meet the number you be fired soon talk" If you have been there for a long time you will receive filtered sales calls if the sups like you. For the rest the attrition rate (turnover) for newer employees is extremely extremely high in comparison to most other telesales companies. The good reviews here are very biased, almost every single negative review is spot on. Not worth your time if you have any sort of integrity or require job stability.

      Has become a politicized woke tech company

      Pros

      Decent comp and good benefits.

      Cons

      Organization is a complete mess. They have a matrix org which means no one leads and everyone needs to be involved with everything. Meetings all day every to coordinate. Priorities shift on a weekly basis causing constant churn so time is spent talking about how to shift rather than ever getting things done. In an announcement to make Juneteenth a holiday, the head of HR had to push political beliefs on the behalf of the leadership. They felt it necessary to impose on us that the US is systemically racist, that racial injustice persists, and that we have a long way to go for black equality.

      Pros

      Great opportunities for sales and the health benefits are definitely above average.

      Cons

      Almost no path out of sales without a huge pay cut that could last for several years.

      Pros

      -Have implemented so many critical processes to improve the recruiting and onboarding experience -Inclusive environment, fair compensation -Have done a wonderful job with repositioning of the brand as the company continues to grow.

      Cons

      -The ecosystem of GoDaddy is pretty huge. This isn't actually a con (I was forced to write one and couldn't think of any). But it is good to know that it does take some time to become a subject matter expert here since the range of offerings is huge, and the company is only continuing to experience growth.
