I have been working at LivingSocial full-time

Pros

Its a new way to bring merchants and buyers together and sales team is great at showing how merchants can have long term success if done right.

Cons

Management does not always seek insight from sales team - the ones doing the job - before changing or adding something.

Advice to Management

Get some ideas from the people on the street, your sales reps.

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

    Pros

    In the beginning this was an excellent place to work and contribute to the growth of the company. Each department possessed a wealth of talent and the culture of the organization was outstanding. LivingSocial offered an outstanding compensation package as well.

    Cons

    Favoritism, unqualified managers, lack of diversity, lack of vision from the CEO, and unable to evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to better connect with your employees, get rid of the frat house mentality, and hire credible managers and executives that can actually steer the company towards profitability.
