Excellent experience for those new or tenured in sales.

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsGreat atmosphere by far and away to work in ~ excellent energy, no dress code, awesome colleagues, etc.
Easy to make a lot of money if you are flexible, smart, and can understand the business model.

ConsLocation...the corporate office is a bit isolating and leaves a lot to the imagination compared to working in the loop or downtown.
Work hours - they mandate a 9-5 policy when it's not needed for this kind of work.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more of your time and energy on those reps that aren't hitting their numbers and less on those reps that are.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
