    Pros

    subsidized lunches, fun events, prizes, and treats.

    Cons

    They're bringing back some QA policies that are not outlined properly and are causing extreme stress on employees. Their leadership in Customer Care is super biased. favorite people get away with everything and only favorites can move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at leadership. Not their stats. You have people who should not be in a leadership role, but have been there a while because they are friends with managers, or have connections.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    The food in their cafeteria was pretty good. The trading provided is the bare minimum but if you are good at self teaching, you should be okay.

    Cons

    It’s like working at a frat house. Managers are allowed to curse at you, call you names, and humiliate you in front of colleagues. If you are a woman, I would advise you to look else where for employment. The job itself is not really customer service, it’s sales. They also encourage you to learn about their products and how they work when you’re at home, off the clock. I’m not sure that’s legal but it’s not surprising since they treat their business like a frat house. I will say I was never roofied, maybe that should go in the Pro’s section?

    Advice to Management

    Instead of pretending you are all still in college, maybe try acting like an adult.

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun, open, and accepting culture. Great healthcare and other benefits. A great place for your first job in IT

    Cons

    Below average compensation. Unclear career paths. Lack of mentorship. Rarely pays to send employees to conferences or training seminars. Teams often have barely enough headcount to handle their day to day tasks

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees if you want them to invest in you. Excess headcount costs more up front, but pays large dividends over time

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    Create culture, free food, emphasis on fitness, happy hours in the building, flexible hours

    Cons

    No career growth. NO mentorship program. Be sure your manager and people you will be supporting respect what you do. If you don't, you'll be wondering why you never get invited to meetings, why people take forever to give you feedback on your work, and why your work is never seen/rewritten.

    Pros

    Great amenities, great opportunities for developers, amazing growth

    Cons

    Lack of focus in infrastructure technology, tends to get less headcount and resources than developers do-- beware of paybands!

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate where your IT sits with pay and workload, and headcount allocation. You'll see attrition there otherwise.
