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

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k, and they have a great work environment.

    Cons

    Too many pay plan changes! Constant pay cuts with increased responsibilities.

    Work environments are vastly different between corporate and call center (c3) departments.

    If your not in the "the club" to are not going to get promoted.

    No value in degrees earned after being hired.

    Career progression is non-existent despite the failed attempt last year to let employees know of other departments.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management; stop the constant pay plan changes!!!! It causes your best employees to leave. It is OK to payout bonuses for sales positions!!!

    Also you are becoming top heavy w/ managers! Over-loading with management is like having too many chefs in the kitchen!!

    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.


  7. "Clinical Supervisor Case Management Interns"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lake Forest, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lake Forest, CA

    Pros

    Achievement in positive growth both individually and as well as a professional team. The team of staff successfully helped people with addiction and mental illness learn to live a new way of living while healing their core.

    Cons

    There'll always be cons to a position and employment yet with that being said is the individual wanting to learn and grow so they can better their professional skill set or stay stagnant and not grow professionally which may lead to resentment and ultimately not remain relevant and educated in the alway changing, growing addiction and mental health field. One's View/Perception makes all the difference

    Advice to Management

    Remain grounded and teachable, one way is not necessarily the only way to achieve success

    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?
