I have been working at Groupon full-time (more than an year)

Pros

the people and the culture are what make Groupon awesome. Perks are nice like free lunch, unlimited time off, and $$ to use as you wish for personal development (conferences, classes, etc.). The personal growth opportunities and challenges are extensive since there's still a lot to figure out and put in place with being such a young company

Cons

fairly unstructured and you have to be ok with that. Things change constantly.

    Pros

    This is such a great company to work for! They give you so many opportunities to move up within the company, and will seriously do everything they possibly can for you to do well. The people here are very friendly too, I made a lot of friends instantly. It makes the days go by quickly! Very social, very young company. And as far as the whole sales thing goes, it's really fun. Even if you get a "crappy" person on the phone, worst case scenario you bumble through the phone call and laugh (or cry) about it afterward with your teammates. We're all going through the same thing, so it's really fun to encourage one another. Great thing is that the sales reps here are extremely positive people with a can-do attitude. There's such great energy here! Awesome work-life balance. You can do 9-5 and be a top sales rep within the company, no problem. Some people like to put in those extra hours too though.

    Cons

    You have a headset and are on the phones all day. So, it's not 100% the most glamorous sales job. But if you've done sales before and thought it was fun, you'll like this job.

    Pros

    It's an amazing company to work for. It feels like getting paid to go to college. You are constantly learning, and every effort imaginable has been taken to be a company of free thinkers. Everybody is working at such a high level, inspiration and ideas flow readily. The collection of talent they have amassed is immense, and they'll teach you to become talented, all you have to do is show up. I love it there. Good parties too.

    Cons

    It's a temperature controlled building, which isn't bad, but you can't open any windows. So I'm missing the sunshine. Soooooooo ya, more sunshine please. haha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Great works guys.
