    more time spent on bureaucracy and rules rather than a code.
    India team wants to work but the US team provides enough hindrance.
    focus is on business rather than code.
    middle management is filled with engineers promoted too fast.
    lack of support to genuine concerns of employees

    I have been working at Endurance International Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love the company and the work. Fun projects and teams.

    Cons

    EIG was an awesome place to work for until the acquisition of Constant Contact, once that happened it turned into "all hands on CTCT". Great people were pushed out or left because of the acquisition. They decided to get rid of the best Technical Recruiter the company had for years and now we're getting terrible candidates for our open roles. The stuff going on for the individual brands is great and all the negatives are having to deal with the revolving door of people in leadership roles and having to kiss the feet of all CTCT execs to appease them even though they were acquired...bleh

    Also, pay here is terrible and not competitive in the tech industry. I get calls and emails all day about jobs paying a lot more than I currently make.

    Advice to Management

    Jeff Fox, separate from CTCT and make EIG great again...

    I worked at Endurance International Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Pay is below average and benefits is ok.
    Manager was crazy about micro-management. He monitored you and paid more attention to trivial things like how often you check your personal cell phone than your real performance. The manager did not try to motivate you for better performance or guide you to grow skill sets or advance your career. He was more interested in how many hours you were on computer, how often you checked your personal cell, and etc. He even encouraged whistle blowing among co-workers.

    Pros

    The bosses don't understand technology and the team is miniscule, so you're free to move things in whatever direction you choose.

    Cons

    Bosses spend 6-8 hours a day working for other companies, so you have to do their jobs for them; they expect you to turn water to wine on a daily basis while doing the work of four or five other people; if you do solid work day in and day out and don't show it off you get interrogated; everybody gets treated like the bosses' personal assistants; bosses change direction all the time depending on with exec is yelling at them the most (usually it's the biz dev guy but they seem to rotate); bosses and other brands brick around their teams constantly, don't listen to their people and talk back when the team is trying to help save them from themselves. No opportunity for promotion, no continuing education, you're not allowed to take your vacation time, and if you're not racing to the bottom with them, you're an outcast. Trust/honesty/loyalty are nonexistant. They truly believe profit comes from having senior backend engineers change text colors on landing pages and demand business reporting on a daily to hourly basis - which they use to micromanage you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people; don't chase shiny objects; do your own jobs so other people don't have to; focus priorities on core business rather than branching all over the place. Don't run everybody to their limits 24/7/365.
