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

Pros

Salary is decent. Most of the other employees are pretty cool and some of the senior management is too.

Cons

There is a lack of integrity, communication, and support overall. There is no mentorship or clear path on how to grow within the organization. It's always one step forward and two steps back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a lot of intelligent employees who genuinely care about building the business. Slow down, take a look around, and bounce ideas off each other in an open forum before implementing processes that are inefficient and time consuming.

    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.

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code and plenty of young people in the office. Free Diet Coke is also a plus.

    Cons

    I was conned into a dead-end position that is likely to be cut soon. Unfortunately, NO ONE in management has told anyone about it. The only answer they give is "we don't know." Expectations are unrealistic, management is uninformed and naive, and promotions are based on who you're friends with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with ACTUAL management skills. Maybe then an entire department won't be run into the dirt.
