    Pros

    Exceptional team that put me on a high stakes project from day one, while giving me the full guidance and knowledge to succeed. Great benefits, salary, and the company truly cares about you and wants you to stay.

    Cons

    Unrelated to the company itself, but some of the male interns had some very sexist views and remarks that made the few girls there uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity has really improved--keep going with these efforts. Maybe more encouragement from leadership and management about respecting others, in regard to the cons ^

    I have been working at GoDaddy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Carpool/commuter benefits, in house barista, young coworkers, nice location downtown, and decent PTO.

    Cons

    Recently we were heavily discouraged from discussing salaries with our peers, why? Because they’re aware of the pay differentiation across the company, even within departments. There’s an incredible lack of transparency, no clear direction/path to move up, and best of all, the pay is below average and not a livable salary for Austin. They will also tell you that you have a “goal” but make no mistake, it’s a quota even when they pretend it’s not. Nobody’s ever given clear answers about well, anything either. Leadership also tries to champion themselves in diversity yet there’s hardly people of color here. There’s a lot of empty promises here as well as huge changes being announced in an email rather than to our faces. And when things are discussed in person leadership is wishy washy and inauthentic.

    Advice to Management

    Stop patronizing us and trying to pretend to relate or care. We ALL see right through it.
