    Pros

    Work environment
    great friends
    easy thing we are selling, not your typical sales job
    no vacation policy
    calls are easy to make

    Cons

    management can by young, depending on who you have they can make stupid decisions
    things change quickly, sometimes annoying
    competition in every market, can be a tough sell

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    overall its not a bad place to work. We still get paid good, have benefits and a lot of freedom on the sales floor. Some days do suck but some days are great. So managers are much better then others, I had a bad one but things change quickly and got a new one and ended up being great. At the end of the day its a job, jobs are usually not supposed to be fun, care free and easy and at the beginning of Groupon it was. Things have changed but I still have fun, close deals etc.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work as a developer. Engineering is still very small - they have some of the best people around. Work hours are still sane - not bad compare to other startups. A lot of exciting things to be built and a great opportunity to learn and grow

    Cons

    The press seems to be very anti-groupon nowadays, which is unbelievable. Groupon still has a lot of potential which people fail to understand - I am sure Groupon will go a long way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but manage external relations better. The company has a lot of potential in terms of engineering - need to grow it as an engineering company, rather than as a sales company
