    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Staff in Chicago, sales and otherwise, are likeminded, young and hungry for the most part -Niche opportunities to make some serious money with hard work

    Cons

    -Management turnover/objectives changing monthly -Trial and error with sales comp plan; no consistency -The employees who were champions of the product have largely been forced out -Direct from COO- "We're here to appease stockholders, then merchants, then customers, then employees. Before they went public, this was hands down THE place to work in Chicago. Now it's a grind to move the stock price up pennies at a time, with no consideration for the long-term effects.

    Advice to Management

    COO Kal Raman came in promising more resources for the sales staff, but after 2-3 months, it was evident that he was spitting lies. How's it going, Kal? Answer: The tail is still wagging the dog.
