    I have been working at Groupon

    Pros

    Smart people and rapid growth. Lots to learn. Lots of great people to meet. Industry creator in dominant market position.

    Cons

    Uncertainty about the future of the company. Embarrassing accounting revelations. Growing pains. Huge number of employees and very big office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard facts only where accounting is concerned. Never mention "adjusted csoi" again. Try and decrease the amount spent on marketing.

    Potentially a great company to work for, but the lack of organization AND training for outside reps is mind-blowing.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, growing, young company.
    Competitive base salary
    Make your own schedule

    Cons

    LACK OF TRAINING FOR OUTSIDE REPS
    lack of communication
    commission & expectations are always changing...weekly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more focus on outside reps(Training/Communication), Understand that the position varies greatly from that of an inside rep.
