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

Pros

The people are really nice although I worked remotely from home. Still enjoyed interacting with the folks in Chicago.

Cons

After the company went public, things changed. Company grew so fast that I became a small fish in a big pond.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote based on results, not tenure.

    I have been working at Groupon

    Pros

    It's fun and collaborative. Everyone sits in an open space, no offices. They support fun in the workplace and give us snacks!! This is the first place I've worked where employees are actual friends that hang out outside of the office. Maybe I'm lucky but my boss is supportive, listens to what I have to say and encourages my professional growth. I feel like I have an advocate in him.

    Cons

    The company is still very young and needs to iron out some processes, rules, regulations so everyone is on the same page and not getting a different answer to a question depending on who you ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep acting like your "one of us" and being non-hierarchial. I may have made up that word, but you get my drift. Don't lose site of satellite offices just because we're the little guys. Get feedback from people on the ground and make sure communications reach them too.
