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

Pros

the people and the culture are what make Groupon awesome. Perks are nice like free lunch, unlimited time off, and $$ to use as you wish for personal development (conferences, classes, etc.). The personal growth opportunities and challenges are extensive since there's still a lot to figure out and put in place with being such a young company

Cons

fairly unstructured and you have to be ok with that. Things change constantly.

    Pros

    Large training system which gives you a long time to learn the sales process. Fun atmosphere to work, and fun group outings. Most people in the company are under 30 and like to have fun. A lot of freedom as long as you get your work done. Commission is pretty competitive it is sales though so you get paid for what you close base salary is not bad though.

    Cons

    You will have to work, there are a lot of goals you need to hit. Cold calling is rough and you have to be able to deal with a LOT of no's.

    Advice to Management

    As every employee in the world would say I would like to make more money on my base salary.

    Pros

    Awesome culture
    Lots of support by management
    Flexible
    personal growth
    Company is constantly changing in a good way

    Cons

    Training is still improving to adjust to a young, sales driven company
    Metrics to make as an inbound rep to move throughout the sales department can be challenging, but if you're willing to put in extra hours and stay on the phones all day...totally attainable
    Difficult to move around within company. if sales isn't for you, it's almost like they have nothing better for you to do

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow training; Be more transparent about what happens if you aren't good at sales.
