    Former Employee - Salaried Employee in Stockton-on-Tees, England

    I worked at Web.com

    Pros

    The management of this company really know how to foster the best possible work environment, extremely supportive and really push you in the best possible way. They encourage rather than cracking the whip. I really can't fault anything about this company in terms of how it is run or their products for that matter. The hours are sociable and they really have a brilliant way of getting the best out of everyone. Had a great...

    I worked at Web.com for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Salary is fair, that's about it.

    Cons

    My team manager was not qualified enough for the role and had extremely poor people management skills. Team morale was extremely poor and there was no support at all from management when it was needed.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to sort it out, when people ask for guidance on business rules and logic then you need to support them. Work on raising morale.

    I worked at Web.com full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Once you learn their Byzantine rules, they're incredibly easy to follow.

    Cons

    The content you're expected to create is shameful. You would never put it near a portfolio of work. They expect you to finish all work given in a day, no matter how understaffed you are, or how ludicrous the copy queue is for that day. The website designs sold to customers would have looked cheesy in 1998. QA team is incredibly anal about points that are irrelevant to quality copy, poring over minutiae and...
