    Unfortunately, it seems stock needs to be going in the right direction before hard effort is put into improving the specified problems.

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

    Pros

    Great company culture, but that probably comes as no surprise. Great benefits, great vacation time (although people abused the heck out of it), nice place to work if you're young and like fun and jokes.

    Cons

    Their expectations for their workers are pretty low. I didn't feel too challenged in my role, but what can you expect from a company that allows their employees to watch TV/surf the web for large portions of the day? I miss those days!

    Advice to Management

    Reexamine quotas and raise them.
