Pros

Good people in a laid-back environment. Lots of perks in and out of the office. Mostly young office for the most part.

Cons

Work is somewhat boring sometimes and the stock is not going up. Media reports about the company are worrisome but internal sentiment seems to say that opposite

    Pros

    The coolest young teammates in the world changing e-commerce for the better. Everyday we inspire consumers to go explore their world. Company is incredibly democratic- you want to work harder for Groupon because of how nice they are to you. We get treated like royalty and they really care about making this the best place to work in Chicago. My fellow Grouponers are the most talented, amazing, creative people outside of Apple. Compensation structure in sales just got simplified, and WOW! Our earning potential is impressive. Also as compared in past sales jobs, at Groupon you have support throughout the process from a variety of teams so you can focus on delivering the best value to the consumer. The projects that Groupon is working on to evolve the company is revolutionary and it keeps getting better everyday. We might be getting bigger, but we still feel like it's a tech startup on the verge of a new revolution. Come join and be a part of the magic! (and the unlimited vacation time or happy hours doesn't hurt either!)

    Cons

    Compensation and commission structure was confusing at first but they keep working on it to make it easier to understand.

    Advice to Management

    KEEP IT UP! We love Groupon because YOU love us. Let's keep making this the coolest place in Chicago. (and that 100k Christmas bonus would be cool, too)

    Pros

    New office space is cool...if you can actually get away from your desk to enjoy it

    Cons

    Look around, no one is happy. Employees are crying in the bathrooms and taking time at lunch for job interviews. People are dropping left and right, either getting fired for not hitting ludicrous goals or leaving for positions with an actual career path

    Advice to Management

    Provide management with training and employees with outlined goals. Nothing is worse than a manger that doesn't know how to manage and an employee who doesn't know what their priorities are
