    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly people, laid back atmosphere, catered lunches. Groupon allows you to "choose" your career path. They foster a collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Too much of a start up environment with no real structure. You will start in one role then get switched to a different department without any warning.

    Advice to Management

    Define your mission and direction and allow for some stability for the employees. Managers are very talented, but the vision seem to suffer from lack of direction.
