    I worked at Groupon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Start-Up Culture Employees Perks (Free Drinks, Coffee, lots of beer, food, etc.)

    Cons

    During Groupon's enormous growth stage, a lot of middle-management had no idea how to lead their teams. Upper-Management disconnected from sales and management team Commission structure got worse and worse over time.

    Advice to Management

    Probably should have sold to Google. Would have been in a much better position.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being on with a newish company I got the opportunity to see/ participate in an evolution of workflow and standards. I have wonderful co-workers that are great people and talented to boot. They have an endless supply of free diet doctor pepper, coke, and the soul quenching La Qua. Vacation policy is great.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. No 401K matching.
