Love it, but most likely not going to be a career

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Groupon full-time

ProsThe people are the best. Even though sometimes it sucks, you are all in it together. I got to sit next to my best friend for two years.

You don't realize how much you learned until you leave. The training, use of Salesforce and savvy sales tactics are something you won't find elsewhere.

ConsThey are working on a career progression - but there isn't really anything in place now. You can advance from Sales Rep to Account Exec to Senior AE....but past that, you can't really go anywhere.

It's stressful - a lot of merchants do not want to work with Groupon (a lot of objections). But you can make a lot of money (or you could when I was still there).

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let Kal Raman (COO) go. He's the man.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
