    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have had the chance to work with some amazing people in a fast paced and casual environment. I enjoy not having to wear a shirt and tie to work and also enjoy working in an open area with like minded professionals. Everyone here is extremely friendly and it is a welcoming environment overall.

    Cons

    The department I have been moved to is extremely stressful to the point that has negatively impacted my health and personal relationships. I was saddled with a difficult supervisor and we are extremely understaffed. Our clientele is very demanding and almost all of our calls are long/end up with the agent being yelled at for things that are beyond their control. Each time I have tried to apply elsewhere within the company, I have been blocked by management, not due to my ability but due to the fact that they do not want to lose me as an employee. I used to love working here but now my days are a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more people and go back to Groupon's unofficial motto of not hiring 'brilliant a**holes'. Ever since the company has gone public, I feel that the culture has taken a steep downhill turn. Please hire more adequately in the future.

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

    Pros

    The culture is very encouraging. If you work hard, people will help you and guide you to becoming a better professional and person.

    Cons

    Employer matching 401K. But that should change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture and the vision, do not become a sales call center.
