    Pros

    Exceptional team that put me on a high stakes project from day one, while giving me the full guidance and knowledge to succeed. Great benefits, salary, and the company truly cares about you and wants you to stay.

    Cons

    Unrelated to the company itself, but some of the male interns had some very sexist views and remarks that made the few girls there uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity has really improved--keep going with these efforts. Maybe more encouragement from leadership and management about respecting others, in regard to the cons ^

  8. "It is what it is."

    Pros

    Endless opportunities to learn from real small business owners.
    Decent benefits.
    Great holiday parties.

    Cons

    Compensation plan adjustments heavily impact top producers while barely reducing the “average bonus” of the standard rep and are always positioned this way by management.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize top producers to stay with the company.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Location was right on Union square.
    2. Solid people
    3. Great engineering
    4. Catered lunches
    5. Managers were great, fun and very relatable and only concerned with your success.
    6. Colleagues were more like friends

    Cons

    1. Product vision could have been better
    2. The "senior leadership" (the executive team) at times were harsh.
    3. Any person (whether you're a director or VP) if you challenged the decision of the "senior leadership" team, you were laid off.

    Advice to Management

    1. Keep treating your employees well
    2. Ideas in challenge to the status quo are not a bad thing
    3. Support more hackathons.
