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

Pros

- casual
- best name & resources in the daily deal space
- working hard to improve management from the top-down

Cons

- spotty, sometimes unqualified direct management
- very little career development & training
- month-to-month quota
- lack of transparency in quota setting & account distribution

Advice to Management

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.

    Pros

    A great place to learn, great opportunities to make work on game changing projects

    Cons

    Groupon potential is misunderstood outside the company, also the company is trough many changes on the way to solve the growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the key.
