Great culture, perks, young environment. Managers are easy going as long as you get your work done.

Doesn't seem like there is much room for growth. Positions changed a lot. It was hard to see what direction the company was going

From what I have heard, the company is improving in many areas.

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

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money if you are able to close top businesses.
    Great job right out of college.
    Low salary- but close unique business and you can make a lot of money.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

    With a deal pipeline, all the tenured reps have a much easier time closing needed deals.
    This causes to many of the same deals beging ran and lack of motivation to close new businesses.
    The only way to add the best businesses to your book is if tenured reps leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on unique deals and make sure the pipeline changes. People are tired of them same deals.
    City planners tend to be swayed by tenured reps new reps really have to work hard to get their deals ran.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
