I have been working at Groupon full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Company culture, great people, neat office, unlimited PTO

Cons

Yes, there are some perks. But this company is all over the place. The changes used to be exciting but now they are just preventing people from doing their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees need a much better idea of career progress, opportunities, and overall path. Most people are underpaid, open your eyes.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Location...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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus more of your time and energy on those reps that aren't hitting their numbers and less on those reps that are.

    Not at all what they say it is... Don't be fooled by recruiters or the people you interview with.

    Pros

    This is a very casual work environment. You can have a beer during the day, usually supplied by the management team. Unlimited vacation days seem like a great idea , if you are one that actually takes advantage of it and many do.

    Cons

    Senior Management for Goods does not consist of merchants causing for constant changes in strategy. Not a sustainable business model. There is not a structure in place to support buying team so many tasks end up on the buyer's plate even though it shouldn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire senior management with merchant experience that doesn't always reference what they did while working for Amazon.
