I worked at GoDaddy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They use good technology and they have casual dress code. Plus they have good team building events

Cons

Some of the middle management are not at all technical and sometimes projecst are taken up without a feasibility study or a discussion with a senior technical person

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open to talk to Technical people before undertaking a project. Also work from home option should be expanded

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a fantastic company when I first started over 6 years ago. Great people with a great attitude. The pay has also been fair.

    Cons

    It's changed... and not for the better. Unfortunately people became greedy and forgot to treat others as they would want to be treated. I'm not sure if it's the same way throughout the whole company as it's grown so much, but this is my view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to all, not just the ones that say what you want to hear. Just because they say it doesn't mean they can follow through on it. Be realistic.

    I worked at GoDaddy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Employee Appreciation Initiative is awesome. They gave a team money to do some activity such as paintball, watch a movie, lunch. The activity can involve multiple teams, and the spending limit is $50 per month per individual in the team, which can be accumulated for up to 3 months and do something bigger. You can even have guests for the EAI.
    -Holiday Party at the end of the year is even more awesome. The party is really cool and entertaining throughout the night. Two drinks for free allowed per person and guest. They give out at least $1 million dollars in cash for employees. Celebrity performance. Rents out Chase Baseball field for the party. Free picture booths. Just simply amazing night and atmosphere.
    -A lot of SWAG!
    -Some cool and smart people
    -Communication is really well established among all employees. The communicator is always on for all employees and they use the phones constantly if needed.

    Cons

    -I'm not a big fan of tall cubicles. It seems pretty isolated, and places with rarely any sunlight, it's so dark.
    -Phone cannot be used or pulled out in restrooms, nor in customer service center.
    -Some websites banned like Facebook and Dropbox.
    -Lots of customer service employees in the same area as developers.
