I worked at LivingSocial full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Loved the environment, they do a lot to engage their employees and make them feel like part of the family. Ability to make an impact and create processes & procedures.

Cons

As with any start-up, there is a lot of change and ambiguity so you have to be comfortable with that in order to be successful.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, very smart.

    Cons

    Decisions made previously were rash and not thinking of the future but about acquiring more businesses worldwide. Need to concentrate on US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given a second chance in 2014, move in a focused direction with purpose rather than make decisions that are not for the long term.

    I have been working at LivingSocial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The smartest people I've ever worked with. Tons of flexibility, totally remote team that does it well. Lots of great nerdy stuff to get into. Very few meetings. Everyone uses the latest techniques for developing software.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be mundane, but that's to be expected at any large organization. It would be nice if the tech team had more of an overall direction, but everyone's working on a lot of different things so I guess it has to be this way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing whatever the heck you did to make the media hate us so much.
