I worked at Groupon full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

Better scope of questions for Front-end Candidates.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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