    I worked at LivingSocial full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay was great, the team was good, the training was a blast, and it was work from home so you were on your own schedule.

    Cons

    Every month your goals went up. I worked for 8 months and made a TON of money in the first few months. I could have made sooo much more but they cap your commission. Now everyone knows what Groupon and LS is and want nothing to do with it. You had to sell 18 deals a month to even get your commission by the time I left. So many things change and so many rules/guidelines/changes. It became a game back and forth. Not worth working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management changed every 3 months because they either fired them or changed your manager. It was very unstable. I am still friends with my first manager, he helped me get a job at his new job!

    Pros

    Awesome culture, they really live by the company values here and it's wonderful. My colleagues are all fantastic, as is my boss. I can't imagine being this happy in another company.

    Cons

    Very young company. Some of the employees don't have much professional experience outside of LivingSocial, and it shows.
