A fun, young company that invites you to succeed based on merit instead of tenure

Pros

Very open and laid back atmosphere, young people can succeed and shine and be trusted, you can move laterally and upwardly quite quickly. I love that the company is about stimulating local commerce. A great underlying mission.

Cons

They are a little focused on the 'goal scorers' meaning that the sales reps and their managers get the best compensation and sometimes the people who support in other ways don't get as much recognition. But if you shine and also advocate for yourself tactfully, you will be rewarded. Also, it would be nice if they matched 401Ks and did some tuition reimbursement especially because they value MBA level education for many upper management roles.

Advice to Management

The young people who work at Groupon are of the generation that requires a lot of positive reinforcement. It is AMAZING how far a pat on the back or public recognition will go for an employee. That can make up for inabilities to give as big of raises or bonuses to some extent.

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

    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 Management

    don't overcrowd territories.

    Pros

    The culture is great, young and new, people are creative and smart. Theres a lot of flexibility and the hardware and software are very efficient.

    Cons

    The work is very repetitive, the quotas you have to meet are a bit zombifying and after a few months you will probably want a different job.

    Advice to Management

    Make the quotas lower
