Pros

Full of very smart, young, ambitious people. Great leadership (Mostly ex-Amazonians) and vision. Really trying to change local commerce.

Cons

Culture has suffered a bit since going public, and things are constantly crazy/unorganized. If you like organized chaos, this is the place for you. However, they don't pay as well as other companies its size.

Advice to Management

Pay your good people more. Don't wait for them to leave, before offering them more money.

    Pros

    One of the few jobs in America where you can work less than 40 hours a week and get paid over 100K. Great Culture and as long as you perform well you can pretty much be your own boss and do anything you want. Lots of Freedom and Lots of Money = a Good Job.

    Cons

    very disorganized and chaotic environment. Goals and expectations are constantly changing. You must be able to adapt and enjoy constant change or you will hate this job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep goals more consistent and treat employees better.

    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 Management

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