Approves of CEO

I worked at Groupon as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Pretty good work-life balance. Team was strong. Free food and other perks like company and team outings

Cons

Sometimes training and mentorship seems somewhat limited. Does not have a ton of perks like one of the big four companies.

    Flexible, no micro managing. My Base Pay was 55K

    Hard to determine a good strategy to maximize on commission. Commission is performance based, not just how many contracts you get signed

    local support for sales reps, commission should have incentive for signed contract AND performance based

    I worked at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is fantastic. It feels like a real community and—in the Editorial Department at least—superiors encourage open communication and creative thinking. Company policies also enforce a good degree of employee autonomy, which is great.

    Cons

    In its initial years, the company grew too fast too quickly and ended up acquiring a larger workforce than was actually needed. This contributed to a number of structural problems—the most frustrating being that it became very difficult for even high performing employees to advance along their career path because the company was more interested in bleeding employees out than rewarding hard work. In fact, good work often went not only unrewarded but unacknowledged. There was very little incentive for employees, monetary, titular or otherwise. At the end of the day, though it was a good job. But not a good career.

    Advice to Management

    I think incentivizing and rewarding employees is incredibly important to both morale and retention. It's worth prioritizing.
