    I worked at Groupon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great Culture and worked with some fantastic hard-working individuals. - Management really listens to associate feedback when implementing new products and internal/external processes.

    Cons

    -Wish there was more transparency about internal issues -Also the work-life balance could have been a lot better, many associates work around the clock for their merchants

    I worked at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Office Culture was amazing. Never worked for or seen first hand a company like it! The training offered was amazing. Use of awesome technology and very fun atmosphere/office.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I quickly made the decision that sales was not the right field for me. I simply was not happy with the work I did. However, If I had any other job type at the company, I would probably still be there.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job!

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After working for some of the large companies in the Seattle area, I can say I would never go back after being at Groupon. -Smartest people I've ever met -No BS process -Startup atmosphere without the 20hr workdays -Actual transparency from highest levels of management

    Cons

    -Hiring like crazy means office space is starting to get cramped. Need to find more office space.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let this place get infected with the Amazon/Microsoft culture.
