Pros

Groupon was a great company to work for, would recommend to anyone looking for a job.

Cons

If you're a frontend candidate, you'll want to brush up on CS stuff, because they don't know how to interview a UI candidate very well.

Advice to Management

Better scope of questions for Front-end Candidates.

    Pros

    scrappy but corporate environment at the same time. it can be fun. not shy about partaking in beer and specialty cocktails in the afternoons, they allow pets in the office.

    Cons

    constant power-struggles among management and departments, several managers have extremely poor management skills. pay is on the low end of the spectrum, it's a struggle to get appropriate headcount for teams and many employees are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    management development programs

    Pros

    Young workforce, dedicated teammates, relaxed work environment, lots of opportunities for professional growth (but not career).

    Cons

    Management looks out for themselves for the most part, no 401(k) match, lack of upward mobility, lack of clear directions. COO constantly changes his mind, Company acts first and thinks later.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from past mistakes, treat your employees with respect, limit your change of directions.
