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

    Pros

    I count my blessings everyday at this job. I feel valued and well compensated for every effort. There would be nowhere else I could make 6 figures my first year on the job. The role of MC is creative and thought-provoking as we craft the best deals for our merchants based on market research. Even as an outside sales rep I have been made to feel like part of a team. I am in love with my job and couldn't ask for more.

    Cons

    This is a high stress-high return job. If you don't like to feel the pressure it may not be a fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! My managers have helped me to grow both personally and professional. I feel like they have all truly invested in my success!

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

    Pros

    * Relaxed work culture
    * Strong tools and resources for personal growth
    * Fun intramural programs and events
    * Free snacks, soda and beer

    Cons

    * Messy HR processes
    * Leadership is very removed
    * Although you may have a great relationship with your direct manager; directors and VPs are not accessible nor transparent about topics regarding the company's growth/ lack there of
    * Poor business model. The promotion of idealistic tasks subtract from the bottom line.
    * No clear marketing plans for special projects
    * Too much of a lean towards the "look and feel" of the product rather than simply scaling production * Premature programs that did host talents from the appropriate fields. Making new product growth clumsy and void of intuition.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the basics. Also, if you are going to promote an "all-inclusive" work environment find ways to better connect with your employees beyond the occasional event.
