The good ole days...

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

Prosgood people ( the one's who actually work hard- the sales and support team)
lots of subscribers
good technology

ConsThere are too many layers and people just telling others what to do.
No respect for the sales team or how hard they work. Compensation is weak
Change in senior management and new sales management approx 2 months ago - since then
its been horrible work environment. Everyone is miserable and they treat the customers ( merchants) as well as employees with little respect. All they care about is how much money groupon makes.

This USED to be about helping others now it is ALL about them. They don't care about their employees and it shows. They are going to LOSE their top sales reps becasue they do not treat them well.

They also created a "boiler" room environment and micromange to the 100th degree.
They suffocate you and you can barely breath or go to the bathroom with out feeling guilty.

- This used to be a work hard play hard fun place but not anymore. Its an awful environment now.

Advice to Senior ManagementAndrew- you should see how miserable your sales team is now. Step up and be the CEO you used to be.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
