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

    Pros

    Laid back. Nice people. Certain departments can work from home every Wednesday. Relaxed hours.

    Cons

    Every time big news happens, which is oftentimes bad news these days, they blame it on "being a young company". While they certainly still are a young company, it is getting to the point where they cannot keep blaming their mistakes on that and start hiring the right people in management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming your mistakes on being young! Hire more experienced people if you still are not getting it straight. Be more straightforward. When you are telling a whole department that you are switching them to non-exempt hourly, do not blame it on a legal issue. It is cutting costs.
