Pros

- Informal, you can go to work with flip flops
- Fun colleagues, good parties
- A good place if you are in an early stage of your career

Cons

- I've read it in other reviews: Groupon just wants to make money. Period. It's true.
- Low salaries for employees that are not sales agents
- They don't do their best to keep good people, being a large company employees easily turn into numbers
- Therefore: high turnover rate
- Little transparency from 'above'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Listen to your staff, and actually do something with their ideas. To keep talented people, offer better salaries, promotion opportunities and bonuses. Be more transparent.

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

    Pros

    Energetic and youthful people who are ready and willing to take up challenges. No dress code. Very motivating environment. Not corporate at all.

    Cons

    Lack of career progression.
    Some leaders are not equipped with the knowledge and experience needed to be forward thinking thus many problems that could have be avoided are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive rather than reactive in business decisions
