    I worked at GoDaddy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Godaddy is like a big family, since I joined I felt part of it. Helpful people everywhere since day 1. - Supported my development at all times. - Senior management door always open if you have any question or you need help on anything (even if they might incur in overtime to finish their own tasks). - Great atmosphere at work, flexibility around office hours, working from home if needed. - There is a pool table...

    Cons

    I would love to say any CON but I cannot. I have been working in finance over a year and I had to leave the company due to personal reasons but since I started my working life, is the best company I have worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the great atmosphere.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No evenings or weekends, social/fun events

    Cons

    No consistent coaching, training support, if there’s any areas you’d like to improve on then team leaders simply don’t have time/ don’t care. if you want to progress within a company then this is not the right place. And if you want to make good commissions then it’s amost impossible unless you sell adwords or websites which is difficult to do. Very boring and repetitive, expected to achieve unrealistic targets, with...

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time

    Pros

    There are a few people who worked there when I did who were very helpful and always willing to support co-workers with any issues.

    Cons

    Unfortunately some of those in higher positions in Finance were not professional and there is nothing I would disagree with on the review titled "UK Finance - be warned" on 18 July 2018. Sadly this behaviour is highlighted more in the obviously fake review left via cetain person(s) in finance management filtered through a very junior finance team member's vocabulary in the "review" posted on 23/07/2018 as a direct...

    Advice to Management

    Sadly the management in the US is not having to deal with these issues on a day to day basis so short of something disastrous happening there will be no change. However finance needs to be shook up and competent management at the helm would do wonders. It would also cut down on the man hours wasted on the many aborted projects that current management thought up on a whim.

    Pros

    Free snacks and stuff Casual dress code

    Cons

    Some products or services always seemed to break Unfortunate internal communication channels with teams that don't seem to give a damn/take a long time to reply Some services or products break all the time Products break ALL the time Casual racism in the office No career prospects Treated just like a number/cannon fodder The list could go on

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees before they all walk. Although it won't matter soon will it... We'll see what happens

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get some pretty cool staff benefits: games room, free stuff, snacks and some free meals. This is probably about the only thing I enjoyed whilst working for GoDaddy, unfortunately.

    Cons

    These ‘cool’ freebies are a way of covering the toxic work environment. If you aren’t high up you aren’t important. Management are full of themselves. TOXIC environment, expect pettiness and gossip! And lots of it. This company seems like a dream tech company, which I have to admit the US team is, but the UK side.....needs a lot a work.

    Advice to Management

    Check yourselves. Maybe engage in some self-reflection...

    I have been working at GoDaddy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its one of the most employee friendly organizations that I have worked with. Great employee benefits. Also they promote work from distant location/ work from home so long as work doesn't get impacted.

    Cons

    Since the company is relatively new into international markets, therefore its approach for US vis a vis other markets is very different.

    I worked at GoDaddy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office management team do a wonderful job to try to make it a fun and sociable environment. There are also the added perks of snacks and drinks readily available, while there is a pool table and games console for down time.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the UK Finance department is a miserable and oppressive working environment for those in the team, due to one specific individual. This has led to a high turnover of staff, with several employees joining and leaving in the space of two years (some of whom left without even securing new jobs). Below are just some of the things that bothered me: - no compassion towards family bereavements - disgusting attitude...

    Advice to Management

    It is truly shocking that a blind eye has been turned to all of this. The issues noted above are only the tip of the iceberg. The high staff turnover will continue unless and until something is done.
