I worked at Groupon as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Passionate, driven management in European region. Team growing like crazy; boundless opportunities. Real start-up feel. Diverse, driven team. Interesting projects.

Cons

Certain weeks had crazy long hours. Pay wasn't best, but pretty good for an internship. Didn't have silicon valley feel. Constant tension with many vendors; difficult to balance Groupon's interests with those of small vendors selling through website.

    Pros

    You will be among the smartest and most energetic young professionals in your field. If given the opportunity to work in a responsive market, you'll be able to make a decent amount of money.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is very limited. Most Management positions are filled, and to reach a higher job status can be difficult depending on your market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the floor. Selling became nearly impossible with all the hoops we had to jump through.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere
    Lots of young people to work alongside
    Gym in the building
    Work near other startups

    Cons

    No career pathing, coaching, feedback, or management reviews
    All raises are based on consecutive bell curves - you're lucky if you get a COLA raise
    Senior leadership does not listen to their reports on almost all levels
    Leadership looks out for revenue, not profit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your bad leadership on all levels, start promoting from within, and give people something to work hard to achieve. There are great, dedicated people on your teams - listen to them.
