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

    Pros

    Fun work environment, awesome coworkers, not the hardest job you will have by any means

    Cons

    Communication is pathetic. I sold takeout and delivery and I was never told when the product was going to launch until I read about it in the news.
    Not efficient - managers take over a month to make simple decisions that could be made in one hour.
    Its a "fake it till you make it" hierarchy. Directors and executives are all talk and basically take 50 PTO days and play on their computers all day. Not very motivating

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the whole organization. Hire seasoned directors and executives instead of 20 somethings who just want to make money and have fun. Culture should be more strict.
