    Pros

    Iowa has a great leadership team. Jamie is fantastic as a manager as well as Josh and Joe.
    Coaching is great for getting more sales.

    Cons

    Supervisors sit in a group rather than with their individual teams which make it difficult to get questions answered.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

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

    Pros

    The benefits and perks are great compared to most large companies. In fact, I would say best benefits at any place I’ve worked at before. Pay is good for a job that does not require or even prefer college education or experience. All customer service jobs/tech support job are currently also sales jobs so if your good at sales you can make really nice bonuses. The new hire training is also very good. Great place to learn about what goes into running a website and business.

    Cons

    All customer/tech support jobs are also sales jobs. So, if your not good at sales you won’t be making much money and will likely not have a job for the long term. I started 11 months ago in a new hire class of 15 and including me there’s only 4 of us left. I know a lot of people that left could not keep up with the sales requirements. So if your not good at sales or if you don’t enjoy talking to people with technical issues and convincing them to buy stuff this job is not for you. It is a phone job so you will be talking to some angry people which can make the job stressful. Since it is a phone job your going to be glued to your desk for your entire shift minutes lunch and breaks.

    With all that said it’s not a bad place to work it’s just really not for people that don’t like having sales metrics they have to meet and if you don’t like talking to people all day long your going to be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Separate sales and tech support. Some people are great with tech support and customer service but not sales.
