    Sad and disappointing experience

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsLots of perks like other hi-tech companies like free shuttle, free lunch, etc. Generally everyone is very friendly and social.

    ConsThere is no career development for many employees. They don't value loyalty. Company does not encourage to hire within. Upper management turns a blind eye to the high turnover rate. People get let go and there are no announcements

    Advice to Senior ManagementInspect teams with high turnover, focus on career development, encourage work/life balance, discourage secrecy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Big Disappointment

    (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsCompany has a good product, and is well positioned for growth where there is potential. Location is good, if you live on the peninsula. Free lunch and food every day is a nice perk. Benefits are good. Depending on the position and department you work it can be positive environment.

    ConsRapid growth in it's first 2-3 years created arrogance in management, and the belief that the growth potential was a slam dunk. Coupons Inc is the market leader in the online printable coupon space, reach is broad, and thousands of sites have their white-label content. However, the company is still struggling with positioning and how to move to the next level. Their revenue is only sufficient to sustain a company of about 50 people. Big problems are on the horizon, therefore it's not a stable place of employment any longer. Nor, is it a place to learn or grow.

    Management seems lost regarding what the next steps should be. There is no clear vision relayed to the employees. And, several layoffs were the result.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire new mid-level management in product development, and marketing with more creativity to drive innovation. Promote personnel in all departments based purely on results.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Cultural vaccum

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsFree lunch & drinks
    Free parking

    ConsSr. Management cares only about revenues and could care less about culture and employee morale making the environment prone to high turnover, functional silos, politics, and bad behavior. Unfortunately, some of the "valued" employees are young and impressionable giving way to high school type behaviors that would never be condoned as professional or simple human courtesy. There is a complete lack of communication or any transparency from Sr. management and they like it that way. Politics is extremely prevalent between the departments and often times you find yourself fighting against one another to get anything accomplished. This is not a "start-up" mentality here as it's been around for 10+years so there is a lot of dead wood walking around who are against any change (like management). Overall, it's not a good place to be for a long time or even at all. Don't be lured by the glamour of equity since it's obvious management wants to keep it just the way it is.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
