Pros

After working for some of the large companies in the Seattle area, I can say I would never go back after being at Groupon.
-Smartest people I've ever met
-No BS process
-Startup atmosphere without the 20hr workdays
-Actual transparency from highest levels of management

Cons

-Hiring like crazy means office space is starting to get cramped. Need to find more office space.

Advice to Management

Don't let this place get infected with the Amazon/Microsoft culture.

    Pros

    Work life balance, unlimited PTO, casual work environment.

    Cons

    Management is down right dumb. They promote sales people with no management training. Cannibalize company salesforce and do not provide any leads. Cold call all day to accounts that people specifically asked not to be contacted.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of or train sales managers. Create a career progression plan. There is a reason the turn over at Groupon is higher than any other company. Compensation structure is a down right insult. Paying sales people 2-4% of GP is unethical.
