    A fun place to work, but know what you're getting yourself into

    Pros

    The same things you have read over and over: flexible time off, extremely casual dress code, flexible hours, free pop, unique office space, fun company events. A lot of people speak negatively about Groupon, but I think it should be appreciated for what it is. If you've ever worked in a stuffy office with a lot of needless red tape and rules, you will appreciate what they are offering!

    Cons

    Management is young, arrogant, and ignorant in many cases. In my experience, your manager will not view you as a colleague, but as a threat, so they will try to talk down to you and keep their thumb on your head. Senior management constantly contradicts lower level management and etc. It's really just a bit silly!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the same page and hire some people who have experience. Quit promoting unqualified employees because of tenure and favoritism. Empower the intelligent women in your workforce!
