    I worked at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back, casual environment

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, unobtainable and inconsistent sales goals, inconsistent and unfair commission structure, condescending managers

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone is meant to lead a sales team. Do not hire someone to manage because they have an Ivy League degree but that has never worked in sales or managed a team before.


  2. "Good Experience"
