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

Pros

Great people and colleagues, very young group and you will definitely find people to hang out with and go out with. "Startup" environment in terms of snacks and some fun extracurricular events, though these have tapered off since LivingSocial began.

Cons

Managers have traditionally not been helpful and are more interested in their own success than yours. Frequent change in compensation plans lead to low morale and lots of frustration.

Advice to Management

Find qualified middle managers who know what they're doing and have more transparency through the company.

    Pros

    Great culture. Great people. Very young demographic, but very smart and driven.

    Cons

    Maybe work-life overlaps with social life a bit too much, there's no separation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

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

    Pros

    Everyday is different and my coworkers are amazing

    Cons

    There seems to be no rhyme or reason for people who get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Ther should be more open communication between upper management and employees. There seems to be an air of secrecy that upper manganemt knows and either won't say anything or will say it as if its no big deal. Management seems to want employees to express their ideas, however when the ideas are mentioned their either dismissed or ignored completely.
