I have been working at LivingSocial full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Company culture (pre 2013), benefits, flexibility and people

Cons

Future outlook, too many people leaving with zero replacements. Too many people doing more than one job.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and lower management. Upper management is filled with too many 'yes' people.

    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.

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

    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.
