    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    Everything and then some of what you'd want in a company. Great leadership, great vision, dynamic, growing business model, fantastic people, and opportunity for career pathing and promotion galore!

    Cons

    If I could think of some, I'd put them here, I just can't. There's simply no aspect of the company that is more negative than positive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rocking it out! The initiatives, the vision, the career ladder and especially the people make this place awesome and makes every day better than the last.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy and ownership of the product and marketing strategy to help the customer and grow sales.

    Cons

    Pressure to hit quarterly sales numbers while still doing what's right for the customer. Customer-first is what we strive for but hitting sales numbers is the ultimate metric.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    Leadership has a great vision of where to take the company.
    The company has a improved it culture a lot--this is not the old GoDaddy.

    Cons

    Limited options for promotion beyond IC roles.
    A tendency to understaff everywhere, which means that no area is really accomplishing what they want. Goals and objectives are always pushed. Rare to complete a project on time.
    Real focus on hiring in CA and WA. AZ options are limited and shrinking all the time.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay, Challenging Environment, Setup for Success, Values, Customer Base

    Cons

    Metrics are bit stressful to maintain when you go on vacation or get sick or have ridiculous high goals (Which upper-management tells you after you be written up for not meeting them in a company wide email.) I guess GoDaddy really need the 24 dollars I didn't make for them.

    Advice to Management

    If one month you say that the metrics from another was to high then why right people up for them?

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

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Benefits and pay are descent. The Christmas party is out of control amazing. There are definitely opportunities to climb the corporate ladder, but only really two mid management.

    Cons

    What was once a fantastic commission structure and benefits package, corporate has continuously reduced the amount of take-home pay and 401(k) matching. They now have focused more on revenue from the website and less on their call center.
