Pros

A great place to begin your career. You get to experience a startup like atmosphere at an established company (so your not in someone's garage). Excellent health benefits, mediocre retirement benefits, and a decent salary.

Cons

Constant churn at the management level. Instead of moving up the ladder there are constant layers of management created above you, making it difficult to get ahead.

Advice to Management

Really focus on improving internal promotions, after two years you literally force your excellent employees to seek work outside just to get that big pay raise.

    Pros

    The dress code is nice. Account Managers are good.

    Cons

    Everything. This company makes me sick to the stomach. They way they treat their employees who have done great work over the course of a year, met goals, and always stayed the course. One bad month, they want to can you. Unreal expectations. They place a manager that is young twenties who hasn't managed anyone and expects people to respect them. They never met her goals most months and now she is managing people...really!!!! Now they are micro-managing their great reps, who will eventually leave. This company is ridiculous to say the least. I can not believe I have wasted an entire year with this bunch of people. It's not about the merchant any more, it's about Groupon's bottom line and what they are making. They turn great deals away, yet again, 20 year olds managing those decisions as well. Seriously, a sucky place to work. Don't waste your time, because no matter how many months you make goal, let one month go that you don't and you are in the hopper to get canned. Trust and believe!!
