I worked at Groupon as an intern (Less than a 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.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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.
