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

Pros

Full of very smart, young, ambitious people. Great leadership (Mostly ex-Amazonians) and vision. Really trying to change local commerce.

Cons

Culture has suffered a bit since going public, and things are constantly crazy/unorganized. If you like organized chaos, this is the place for you. However, they don't pay as well as other companies its size.

Advice to Management

Pay your good people more. Don't wait for them to leave, before offering them more money.

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

    Pros

    One of the few jobs in America where you can work less than 40 hours a week and get paid over 100K. Great Culture and as long as you perform well you can pretty much be your own boss and do anything you want. Lots of Freedom and Lots of Money = a Good Job.

    Cons

    very disorganized and chaotic environment. Goals and expectations are constantly changing. You must be able to adapt and enjoy constant change or you will hate this job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep goals more consistent and treat employees better.

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

    Pros

    the environment is fun, if you are looking to party all the time. the office is right before the loop so its easy to get to.

    Cons

    they work you to the bone. sell a product that doesnt work. and the managers are young and immature towards employees. there is no security, as well as no consistancy.

    Advice to Management

    stop treating this place like a sorority.
