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

Pros

- casual
- best name & resources in the daily deal space
- working hard to improve management from the top-down

Cons

- spotty, sometimes unqualified direct management
- very little career development & training
- month-to-month quota
- lack of transparency in quota setting & account distribution

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Unfortunately, it seems stock needs to be going in the right direction before hard effort is put into improving the specified problems.
