Company going through transition with leadership not knowing exactly what they want.

I have been working at Groupon full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Very relaxed culture, very young environment, on-site cafeteria so no need to leave the office mid-day, a ton of very talented sales and technology professionals.

Cons

Leadership changes in focus on a dime, most people aren't pacing to goal, very little job security, tenured based success, not set up for newer people to be successful unless replacing someone, goals are trending toward unrealistic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Culture of very little job security is unhealthy to employees, and rapid change of contacts is very suspect to merchants. If the majority of the company is not pacing toward goal, then something needs to change with the goals.

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

    Pros

    Work culture is great. Office is in a great location and has great amenities. In the beginning it was a very exciting place to be and I very much enjoyed my time, never woke up dreading coming into the office once.

    Cons

    I have had 4 different managers and 3 different DSMs in 8months so nothing and no one is consistent. There is no one to go to bat for you if those who are supposed to keep getting fired or quit. Salary for my position is all over the place. Some are making close to nothing and some are making 10k more for doing the same exact workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some departments are very well taken care of(the ones that bring you money) some are completely ignored. Make sure all departments are taken care of and things may work to your favor.

    Pros

    Name recognition,
    fun job
    outside sales, work from home

    Cons

    Leadership constantly changing, had 12 managers in 10 months
    NO one knows how to fix a problem
    Pay kept changing
    more about getting a "sale" than making the client happy
    training is awful, and they treat you like a 5 year old.
