Challenging, yet rewarding. fun environment, yet it only distracts the fact that it is still an inside sales job.

I worked at Groupon full-time (less than an year)

Pros

great tech support, fun environment, fun people.

Cons

constant pressure to perform, long hours dictated my management, limited growth opportunities, your commission is more dependent on what territory you are selected for, rather than your effort and output.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't overcrowd territories.

    Pros

    Laid back. Nice people. Certain departments can work from home every Wednesday. Relaxed hours.

    Cons

    Every time big news happens, which is oftentimes bad news these days, they blame it on "being a young company". While they certainly still are a young company, it is getting to the point where they cannot keep blaming their mistakes on that and start hiring the right people in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming your mistakes on being young! Hire more experienced people if you still are not getting it straight. Be more straightforward. When you are telling a whole department that you are switching them to non-exempt hourly, do not blame it on a legal issue. It is cutting costs.

    Pros

    Free coffee and soda. Awesome coworkers

    Cons

    Poor managers who are abusive. Dying industry...sorry but the "earlier adopters" have become disillusioned and dropped out. Deals that generate no commission. Embarrassed to tell friends who i work for! everyone has horror story! Goals are set in place that no one can reach. Merchants do not want to hear the name Groupon. It's impossible to do sales.

    We were told to post fake reviews on ratings sites so that our merchants look better. But then LivingSocial corporate/HR does the same thing.

    The only thing they got going for them, is a lot of young people who dont know any better and don't mind drinking the kool aid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management who is willing to lay their own butts on the line. All the good managers have already left.
