Blake's vision killed what was the greatest company in the world.
Inbound Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – September 29, 2016
Having worked there for 3 years, I experienced life at godaddy under the rule of Bob Parsons on his last year at the company and things were great. You were allowed to be yourself, not having to be scripted when you spoke to customers, and the overall moral was at a all time high. Ever since Blake Irving took over, moral took a nose dive. He made the company go public so he had to answer to shareholder on making more money. My job went from a technical support with light sales job into a full on pressure sales job. Things went from bad to worse when they changed up the bonus policy. Now they held employees accountable for other employee sales if they didn't show. Made empoyees accountable for sales for days that they requested off for vacation. In the span of 1 month. I've seen the employee numbers drop from a lil over 1300 employees down to under 600 employees due to Blake's vision. Working at godaddy is great if you work great under the pressure sales environment. For the standard call center type, it's not worth the impending heart attack.
Decient pay, paid healthcare for individual.
Terrible leadership, pressure sales.
