Cons7 months ago, when I started to work for Groupon Brazil, I saw a chaotic environment, with its own beauty, growing fast and with a lot of oportunities. The company was working with a huge lack of processes, and since the managers start to map this process and make them work, the company will start to grow in the right way. But nobody seems interested on making the company be a better place to work. Everybody is upset about the way things are happening here, and the a lot of good people and some managers (including the brazilian COO) are leaving the company. The CEO doesn't look to care about the employees, the worst employees are promoted and they don't seems to trust brazilian employees, neither understand the brazilian customer mind.All the good ideas, the innovation and the joy of working for Groupon disappeared when the "make money - doesn't matter how, or we'll fire you " philosophy cames in.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to observe your company, Florian. People are unsatisfied here and the good brains are leaving. You lost your right hand, the COO. Who'll be the next? How long will you wait untill take some decisions? How long do you intend to be a hostage from bad administration and lack of process?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
