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

Pros

Sales positions are work from home. You get to work with all kinds of businesses.

Cons

Management from the top down is a joke. Your manager won't be in touch at all until they need something from you. Really high turn over, bad comp plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to consider new Management from the top down. Jennifer Terrell is the president (also the star of a trashy reality tv show, real house wives of nashville) Maybe more planning meetings & less filming sessions.

    Pros

    People understand what you are selling, you will get meetings with businesses, co-workers are great, great insurance

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales quotas, managers are not required to help you succeed, burn thru sales people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow the growth, stop being so greedy, sales people built the business and you treat them the worst

    I have been working at LivingSocial full-time

    Pros

    There are no more pros to working at LivingSocial. It went from being one of the best companies to work for to the ultimate worst.

    Cons

    HR violations -- breach of confidentiality, discrimination, lack of professionalism
    Constant sales & compensation changes
    Sales reps being forced out of the company due to bogus performance issues to avoid negative publicity from layoffs
    No female sales leaders -- most have been let go or have resigned due to blatant discrimination
    Paid Time Off -- DOES NOT EXIST HERE. Unless you want to be harassed by managers while you are gone & made to feel guilty for going on vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a real VP of Sales & upper sales management
    You should have kept top employees instead of forcing them out the door
    Interesting how few females are in top positions in this company
    You are lucky most employees leaving do not want to deal with the time a lawsuit would take or you would be under fire for all of your HR violations!!
