Pros

Great Product. Great Staff. Great subscribers.

Cons

Top level people are clueless. Too many changes. Bad Q3 incentive plan. Goals are still out of whack for some. Target marketing cannot be applied in this industry

Advice to Management

If you have to change something every quarter you didn't higher the right person to make that decision in the first place. Making changes is fine but when you do it commit to it. DQP still needs to go. Let employees make you money. Stop preventing this from happening. Inside sales needs to go. They don't make you any money.

    Pros

    In the early days of LivingSocial it was fun and energetic. The money was great and the sale was fast. The goals were easy to meet and very possible to exceed.

    Cons

    The company does not seem to be standing the test of time. The Daily Deal platform is dropping from relevance. The environment became frenetic and felt desperate. Goals and compensation was constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management was out of touch with the challenges in the field.

    Pros

    Worked with some of the best people ever in business. I'm only referring to my fellow sales team members and associates, not managers.

    Cons

    - The worst internal policies ever. From RSM to the VP of Sales, it reeks of robotic yesmen/women.
    - The systems put in place for quality control make absolutely no sense and stifle anything actually productive.
    - Assigned meaningless tasks on a daily/weekly basis that truly have no purpose. When asking managers directly, they will admit it in a roundabout way.
    - Zero career opportunities without really getting lucky with your market assignment.
    - No matter how many times they say they love employee feedback at a Sales Conference, know they truly do not. You will probably leave the company before you see anything implemented.
    - Even though this is a sales driven company, they have zero say in anything important.
    - Uber Top-Heavy. Most of the managers do nothing but hold fake conference calls and send out stupid emails about random industry news and useless facts.
    - Use of the word "Boom" couldn't be more annoying.

    Advice to Management

    If you would listen to your salespeople. Most of them are a thousand times smarter than the managers.
