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

Pros

After working for some of the large companies in the Seattle area, I can say I would never go back after being at Groupon.
-Smartest people I've ever met
-No BS process
-Startup atmosphere without the 20hr workdays
-Actual transparency from highest levels of management

Cons

-Hiring like crazy means office space is starting to get cramped. Need to find more office space.

Advice to Management

Don't let this place get infected with the Amazon/Microsoft culture.

    Great atmosphere, good commission, good advertising platform when set up right in the right market.

    Cons

    Platforms always changing, bring bad customers to businesses, businesses loose money, too many platforms

    Advice to Management

    Groupon has lost its luster...not sure how to regain without coming out with a completely new concept with a sister organization...

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

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money if you are able to close top businesses.
    Great job right out of college.
    Low salary- but close unique business and you can make a lot of money.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

    With a deal pipeline, all the tenured reps have a much easier time closing needed deals.
    This causes to many of the same deals beging ran and lack of motivation to close new businesses.
    The only way to add the best businesses to your book is if tenured reps leave.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on unique deals and make sure the pipeline changes. People are tired of them same deals.
    City planners tend to be swayed by tenured reps new reps really have to work hard to get their deals ran.
