    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.

    Pros

    For an individual who recently graduated college, a company such as Groupon is perfect for these types of individuals to get a grasp of the ins and outs of what a publicly traded company feels like. Although still in the infant stages compared to larger companies, in the little time of working with Groupon, I have noticed the shift in atmosphere and the reaffirmation of the "Work Hard, Play Hard" attitude amongst the employees and management.

    Cons

    In regards to such a young employee base, there is still a lack of progression outlined by management as to providing a career path for their incoming employees. On that note, employees within departments are constantly moving on and therefore it is hard to establish clear communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a clearly laid out succession plan, otherwise this type of deterrence does not keep employees with the company in terms of retention past two years. Additionally, you have a wealth of knowledge in regards to upper management, please use it in providing a continuing education to young professionals within the company who are looking for answers.
