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

Pros

For an individual who recently graduated college, a company such as Groupon is perfect for these types of individuals to get a grasp of the ins and outs of what a publicly traded company feels like. Although still in the infant stages compared to larger companies, in the little time of working with Groupon, I have noticed the shift in atmosphere and the reaffirmation of the "Work Hard, Play Hard" attitude amongst the employees and management.

Cons

In regards to such a young employee base, there is still a lack of progression outlined by management as to providing a career path for their incoming employees. On that note, employees within departments are constantly moving on and therefore it is hard to establish clear communication.

Advice to Management

There needs to be a clearly laid out succession plan, otherwise this type of deterrence does not keep employees with the company in terms of retention past two years. Additionally, you have a wealth of knowledge in regards to upper management, please use it in providing a continuing education to young professionals within the company who are looking for answers.

    Pros

    The work environment can't be beat....and that goes a long way. Working in editorial you are not dealing with the general public--another big plus I think a lot of my colleagues don't appreciate.

    Cons

    Lack of organization and a training process that is as hands-off as their management style.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have experience in employee management. A casual work environment is really nice but people crave structure in areas where it counts -- like having confidence that the management is there for support and not too overworked themselves.
