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

    Pros

    Good entry level sales job in start up tech company
    Sales meetings in Hawaii and DC
    Young employees who like to play hard

    Cons

    Management can be abusive
    Unrealistic goals so you can't make more than base salary of $35-45,000
    End of month stress is debilitating
    No long term career growth as daily deal space is flat...and all you are qualified to do is cold call or telemarketing sales
    High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Retrench and set realistic goals so top performers make six figures on consistent basis...regardless of size of market.

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

    Pros

    Very energetic and fantastic group of people to work with. Field management team was one of the strongest teams I have seen assembled.

    Cons

    Communication from field to corporate is totally discounted. Communication overall is a major issue but they are aware and working to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Trust those who know your markets and listen to them.
