I worked at Groupon full-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible work environment, great team atmosphere in my department, young and fun, easy mobility within company up to a point

Cons

Promotions tended to be fairly quick up one or two levels and then dead end, excessive company focus on sales

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on the strengths of the editorial department rather than only on sales

Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Groupon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great training - two weeks of sales and product training with a three month ramping period
    - A lot of resources available to the sales team; the company wants you to be successful

    Cons

    - Goals can be inconsistent and very high
    - Negative press against the company can make selling quite difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micromanage and trust your senior reps
