I have been working at Groupon full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Honestly, the best part about working here is the flexible vacation time. But, since there is no "official" policy, most feel guilty taking days off.

Cons

Inexperienced and overworked management
Senior leadership totally isolated from staff concerns and daily lives
Unbelievably incompetent HR and Finance staff
No 401k

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -Free soda, Vitamin Water and gatorade
    -Young company so it's always growing
    -Fun product to sell

    Cons

    -Free La Croix. Who is the person that orders this?
    -In 2010 and 2011 it was a great company to be with because there was so much energy and team building. It slowly but surely became a job where employees were no longer valued even after putting in 50+ hours a week *in terms of commission AND leadership recognition.
    -There was no career advancement in place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your reps instead of just trying to turn something around to make money for the company. They are the one's on the phone with merchants all day. Because this was never done, you can't ever expect to be a "solution" to customer's advertising needs if you are only trying to profit yourselves.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper Management seems very unknowledgeable about where they want the business to go. Monthly changes of goals criteria make it impossible to have any job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
