Unscrupulous business practices

Merchant Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsEmerging, cutting edge market
Name recognition when you tell people you work there

ConsTerrible pay
Disorganized management
Unscrupulous business practices
Not a technologically advanced company
High pressure sales teams lead to bad deals

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a realistic look at your business model. Be honest with your successes AND your failures. Don't be afraid to admit you actually aren't doing that well in key markets. Do not create an environment where young reps make bad deals because they are so stressed to make their quota. Businesses lose, and Groupon loses because the merchant has a bad experience and creates bad press and bad word of mouth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
