Approves of CEO

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

Pros

People are open to new ideas and encourage creativity and innovation. People are super nice and everyone is a team player. Feedback is always consistent and constructive. Things are moving fast and always changing.

Cons

We sometimes try to tackle too many products, I wish we would focus on making a few key products the best.

    "A mixed bag of good and bad experiences. Mostly bad, though."

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

    Pros

    Coworkers were young, arty, and interesting. Frequent raises and promotions (at least at first).

    Cons

    A fake, irritating veneer of "quirky Groupon culture" covering an otherwise soulless, corporate advertising company. Competitive atmosphere. Inexperienced management. Future of company/jobs uncertain. Sweeping changes made to work expectations on an almost weekly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring twenty-three-year-olds with no management experience to supervise others.
