Pros

Good experience. Great company culture. Good employees. Pay is so-so.

Cons

Upper management is incompetent. Too aggressive with sales and not customer centric at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Keep the culture. Stop trying to be like every other company that upper management comes from.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, autonomy to pursue projects of interest. Generally very smart, competent peers. Managers / HR invested in your experience and tend to care about providing opportunities for upward mobility. Unlimited vacations. Young company with great people that you can connect with.

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced environment, sometimes a lot of fire drills and pressure to work with tight deadlines

    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!
