    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    Good pay - Good benefits - Nicer offices - On-campus gyms - Subsidized Meals - External perks, ie: Travel Discounts

    Cons

    Limited upward growth, most promotions are lateral - Poor internal communication - Slowly being outsourced

    Advice to Management

    1. Keep lines of communication honest, stop with the bs "company speak". 2. Stop trying to pretend that you're just "localzing", when you take jobs away from the states, and pay people less money to contractors in other countries it's called OUTSOURCING.

    Just like work with your friends, you know the guy siting beside you is gonna support you.

    I worked at GoDaddy as an intern

    Pros

    The company culture at GoDaddy is really cool. They take their work seriously, but aren't afraid to have fun either. The workspace in general felt relaxed and comfortable. The hours are flexible, you don't have to dress up for work, and the general vibe is just friendly. They also take good care of their interns, with plenty of fun events and a competitive salary. What I most liked about working at GoDaddy is that they don't give the interns busywork. They are very inclusive, and put the interns on real projects making the actual software that GoDaddy ships to its millions of customers worldwide. It was an awesome experience, and I am seriously considering working there full time after college.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.

    I worked at GoDaddy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Experience, community, work life balance, culture
    Honestly, as an intern you're treated like royalty and a part of the team. The company really splurges on making sure the experience is incredible, and from day one you're integrated into the tram and given meaningful work. It's honestly the best experience I could have asked for.

    Cons

    Honestly I don't have any cons. This was the best summer of my life and I was treated as a real employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Than you for the review! There are a lot of great perks and, depending on your personal needs, some work schedules may work better than others.

    Pros

    Awesome People that are always willing to help
    Great Benefits for those that use them
    Good Culture for those that follow it

    Cons

    Actively discriminate against long time employees disallowing them from joining any new leadership groups
    If you come in from external you're usually paid almost double from what's existing

    Advice to Management

    Try to be fair to all years of service
    Don't keep creating exclusionary groups that require people to "be employee less than 4 years"
    When we find out the truth it makes us want to leave before we've been here 4 years
