    Pros

    -You will be in midst of highly knowledgeable and committed people. -lot of opportunities to learn and explore -fun environment at work -variety of good food options at workplace

    Cons

    The company has been growing at a fast pace, and there seems to be 'process-oriented' culture building up. It is good in one sense, but it could also affect the agility and freedom that people used to enjoy in the startup like environment.

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

    Pros

    The work environment can't be beat....and that goes a long way. Working in editorial you are not dealing with the general public--another big plus I think a lot of my colleagues don't appreciate.

    Cons

    Lack of organization and a training process that is as hands-off as their management style.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have experience in employee management. A casual work environment is really nice but people crave structure in areas where it counts -- like having confidence that the management is there for support and not too overworked themselves.
