Pros

I count my blessings everyday at this job. I feel valued and well compensated for every effort. There would be nowhere else I could make 6 figures my first year on the job. The role of MC is creative and thought-provoking as we craft the best deals for our merchants based on market research. Even as an outside sales rep I have been made to feel like part of a team. I am in love with my job and couldn't ask for more.

Cons

This is a high stress-high return job. If you don't like to feel the pressure it may not be a fit for you.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! My managers have helped me to grow both personally and professional. I feel like they have all truly invested in my success!

    Pros

    Very energetic and fantastic group of people to work with. Field management team was one of the strongest teams I have seen assembled.

    Cons

    Communication from field to corporate is totally discounted. Communication overall is a major issue but they are aware and working to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Trust those who know your markets and listen to them.

    Pros

    -Fun environment
    -Great deal of independence, as long as you meet your unrealistic goals

    Cons

    -So much money was wasted in the first few years of the company with over the top expensive conferences, multiple layers of non-essential employees, etc - a sign of young, inexperienced management
    -After the big layoff last year, things have gone from bad to worse, with company morale being at an all time low - so many talented people have left and are continuing to leave
    -Dying industry - the daily deal is now hurting local business and merchants don't want to devalue their business by signing on

    Advice to Management

    With all of the excessive spending in the beginning years, it was only a matter of time until the company's bottom line would be affected. You're going to have to quickly re-invent the company if you want to continue to stay in business for the long-term
