I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'd like to start by saying that I already had about 6 years of sales experience between two different companies prior to starting at Groupon. I hear a lot of complaints about how the culture and pay has changed over the years at Groupon. With that said, most of these complaints seem to come from people that are relatively inexperienced in the working world. Others who have seen different working environments tend to appreciate what we have here at Groupon. Anytime I feel like complaining about my situation, I think back to my younger years in other sales environments and honestly feel lucky. Sure the money can be inconsistent but that's sales and honestly you get out of it what you put in. On that subject, I hear others saying that the environment is unstable but this is a start up and that's how start ups behave. I feel fortunate that I work at a company that actually changes when they see things taking a wrong turn. I also feel like I have a ton of opportunity to better myself as a salesperson here. We are constantly invited to trainings that can help us fine tune our skills and hone in on new ones.

    Cons

    The only con that I see here is the lack of opportunity to move up in your career. There are a lot of very intelligent and driven people working here and it's tough to compete with that. However, my managers and even senior management is always willing to listen and help you come up with a strategy to move forward in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have to management is to continue to try and develop talent from within. A lot of us love working here and would really like to make a career out of it, however at times it seems hard to do so.

    Pros

    So, you know how all companies have a mission statement? Well "making life less boring" is both a vision and a reality at Groupon! This company moves so fast innovating, collaborating, updating process, products, technologies striving to put out the coolest deals and merchant services that engage consumers and provide value to local businesses that you seriously have to stay hyperfocused to keep up. Never a boring day! Plus, we just have a ton of fun with contests and goofy management challenges. The best though is that the product really works for so many local businesses and consumers love buying from Groupon. THAT is the good stuff.

    Cons

    With rapid innovation, sometimes not every new process or product actually works when rolled out internally. Yep, this will challenge your time management skills. If you're not careful, you'll get sucked into the process and lose track of the bigger picture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the Consumer and Local Business. Improve communications internally. Enhance training programs to reach the outside team and promote from within more.
