    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 (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

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Great Pay. Great Facilities.

    Cons

    Horrible resources & tools (Most of which is probably in the pipeline to be fixed). Too transparent (everyone knows your production & you will jump through hoops to seperate your character & your work). Things change so much that you have no choice but to do the same. I balanced all these things.. but it was stressful (There are chiropractic & counseling services available which I didn't use because I find self therapy more suitable).

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the history of each representatives interactions within work messengers & communication platforms. Many fires would be put out way before they start & the environment would be comfortable for new comers & tenured agents. I have no other advice for management, they do extremely well.. Its everyone below management you have to be careful with.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    Company definitely makes efforts to appreciate employees. Good energy. Work/Life balance is encouraged. Work with lots of great people.

    Cons

    At times, there is a lack of clarity in regard to future plans (specifically how teams/products/individuals fit in to those plans). This tends to lead to anxiety for some employees. To some degree, this may be a by-product of GoDaddy being a company in which employees really enjoy being a part of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on employee appreciation. Continue to seek ways to improve direct communication between the executive level and those on the front lines (especially communicating upward). This would help executive management have a clearer and more accurate picture of where the company stands; leading to improved strategic planning, improved quality, and quicker delivery of initiatives.
