    Pros

    Truly fantastic coworkers in the beginning.

    Cons

    At first, this was a dream job. Fun, great people, and we truly tried to write great copy. Management was trying their best, but the company grew too fast and truly didn't know how to handle new hires or reward older writers that had been there for years.
    Soon it became a writing sweatshop, and the writing quality and specific humor meant nothing to higher ups. Creative writers were not given the new positions they deserved; only those that wrote bland, safe copy were given senior positions.

    Pros

    Amazing people, made lifelong friendships
    Flexible time off
    Casual office vibe
    Most people, regardless of position, were very approachable and nice
    Great basic sales training for entry level

    Cons

    During my tenure, I watched Groupon go from funky startup to investor-pleasing machine. The fun and enthusiasm from the early days was replaced with a very difficult structure for the newer reps to succeed monetarily. As commission percentages continued to get dialed back, more reps were added, and territories shrunk. As with many hyper-growth organizations, this created a lot of tension.
