    Pros

    Fast paced Quick to implement changes

    Cons

    Poor employee moral Mid-level management is very difficult to work with Managment does not seem to respect employees Management does not work well outside of their own department/team

    Advice to Management

    Put more of a focus on employee relations and less of a focus on press. Use this time of low stock prices and negative press to focus on internal initiatves. happy employees = productive employees. Train the leadership staff, there are to many managers with no management experience and it shows.

    Pros

    -Unlimited Vitamin Water, Mountain Dew and LaCroix -Fun atmosphere -Potential to make a good amount of money -Flexible vacation and time off policy -You MAY have an opportunity to be a Groupon hand model for Groupon Goods watches. Woo.

    Cons

    -Changes happen faster than a 1 year old's diaper -Your manager may have less experience, or no management experience at all. Many were promoted on the sheer fact that they exceeded goals in sales and wanted to be a manager -No resolution to any sort of issues you bring up...even after being persistent -Unrealistic sales goals and a commission structure that doesn't make any sense for reps that have been there for years, and have the most experience and strongest connections. -Lack of compassion or recognition to hard working and long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they have concerns and follow up with them on a resolution. If you don't, you will lose trust and commitment to the bloodline of Groupon...the salespeople.
