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

Pros

Good experience. Great company culture. Good employees. Pay is so-so.

Cons

Upper management is incompetent. Too aggressive with sales and not customer centric at all.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Keep the culture. Stop trying to be like every other company that upper management comes from.

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

    Pros

    Free drinks. My coworkers were very nice people, and I've kept some friends. Pay was ok. Experience luckily lead to a much better career move in under one year.

    Cons

    Under trained, under staffed, the Breadcrumb software itself is super buggy, ignored by upper management, no 401k matching. Overall, working for Breadcrumb was extremely stressful. We were never sure when something was going to break and we were going to get hundreds of emails and phone calls from merchants about it. Developers ignored our concerns, as did our managers. During my last few weekly there, we had a number of outages in the software, costing merchants an incredible amount of money. Breaks and free time to get away from the intense stress are limited. If you see a job ad, run the other way and don't look back.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees tell you they need. Don't be afraid to make big changes, as they're desperately needed.
