Great fun, for a (little) while

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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 Senior Management- 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
