I have been working at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good people in a laid-back environment. Lots of perks in and out of the office. Mostly young office for the most part.

Cons

Work is somewhat boring sometimes and the stock is not going up. Media reports about the company are worrisome but internal sentiment seems to say that opposite

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Availability of various different resources to ensure success
    -Tools (Salesforce, Zendesk, Jobvite...)
    -People (Teammates, Managers....)
    -Technology

    Growth and development all depends on the individual. If you're driven, motivated, focused, and thus bringing in results...you will be noticed.

    Cons

    Management needs proper management training

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees...we all have lives out of the office too. & We all have different work ethics and styles of doing things. Please work to identify our strengths and weaknesses and use them towards the greater success of the company.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of capable people in every department, although the average age is strikingly young. Great collaborative spirit among employees. Support system for Account Executives is amazing. There is a lot of bad press, but the company seems to be going in a great direction.

    Cons

    Sales department is pretty saturated. There are a lot of people stepping on each other's toes in regards to their sales territories. Old news as far as sales departments go.

    Advice to Management

    Put more thought into the placement of salespeople. Give us a better chance to succeed!
