Had great potential, now stagnating

Sales Specialist (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

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

ProsGreat people and colleagues, very young group and you will definitely find people to hang out with and go out with. "Startup" environment in terms of snacks and some fun extracurricular events, though these have tapered off since LivingSocial began.

ConsManagers have traditionally not been helpful and are more interested in their own success than yours. Frequent change in compensation plans lead to low morale and lots of frustration.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind qualified middle managers who know what they're doing and have more transparency through the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Loved my time there, fearful of the future

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at LivingSocial


Pros: - Great co-workers. Some of the best people I ever worked with. - Office HQ was really one of a kind, for the east coast… Cons: - No idea where they are headed. It's OK to be #2 if you can make $$ - Held onto the "anti-Groupon" mentality way too long.… Advice to Senior Management: Might be time to sell, and be honest with longer tenured employees who think they will be getting a payout if/when the company is sold.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
