    Former Employee - Senior Sales Executive in New York, NY

    I worked at Groupon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Remote employees have an autonomous environment. The Merchant Center showcases the results of campaigns, making it an easy sell once you get a merchant's attetion. Management will leave you alone which is nice. But if you're not hitting their minimum expectation you have daily calls with management- unfortunately about 75% of the sales staff is on 'warning'. Getting to work with local merchants.

    Cons

    Groupon is not what it used to be. The sales leaders treat the outside reps like inside reps, calling off lists of businesses that have been called over 20 times in 30 days. They say they have an automated 'demand generation filter' on the list which is nonsense. If a local business is not 'QL' approved, you can't work with them. You're expected to sell 20 deals a month and the only way to do that is to recycle old deals from merchants you've worked with. But the compensation for a refeatured offer is near next to nothing. You are rated on the amount of revenue you generate and number of contracts back. Since you're always being hammered on number of contracts per month, you can't concentrate on new merchants. It used to have such a great culture. What's left are greedy shareholders that crack whips chasing what will never be realized - a profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your regional managers manage. They are glorified robot messengers that spew what you tell them to say. Quit creating so many internal roadblocks for reps to get a deal closed. If you want 20 contracts closed in a month, ease up on all the restrictions you place on businesses being qualified.
