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

Pros

Great team, moves fast, exciting projects are always available to work on. A product that has the potential to change the way people to business locally and truly help local merchants.

Cons

While we move fast, we also can take way to long to execute. When things are finally shipped, they're not always of an amazing quality.

Advice to Management

Provide more inspiration and direction toward the future. It feels like we're constantly going off in every direction at once and there are always multiple teams working on overlapping tasks with poor or no alignment.

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

    Pros

    Laptop, Iphone. Opportunity to make decent commission during ramp up period.

    Cons

    No communication. The inside sales team is the focus of the sales force. Very little opportunity for new employees. Completely remote, very little direct contact with management. Poorly structured sales organization from an outside perspective. Small commissions, scattered leads with no defined territory. Not able to support more than 1 or 2 successful sales people per market. Only 3 out of about 12 hit quota. 100% turnover in less than a year.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is sorely lacking. Either support your outside salesforce or get rid of it all together. Provide opportunity to succeed to more than just a few select employees.
