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

    Pros

    Great culture.Work life balance is great and if you are a performer, the unlimited time off vacation policy is amazing. Able to grow and make a lot of money.

    Cons

    Change often. The company still has a start-up feel and has other start-up going on inside of the start up. On target earning could change multiple times in a year and not always up

    Advice to Management

    Groupon is a like a room with a lot of smart people in it, but just because you have been in the room longer doesn't make you any smarter than someone who hasn't. Needs more non-entry level positions available.

    I've met some pretty awesome people here.

    Earning potential and not too many upper level positions available.

    Don't talk so much about how hard the up coming month(s) are going to be. Focus more on continued education and engaging employees in proactive tasks.

    I worked at Groupon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation, casual dress code and amazing office right downtown in the Loop. Super trendy office space with free coffee.

    Cons

    Poor management, unreachable sales goals and quick to fire. No one helps you grow to reach your goals. Management is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    The role to set up deals should allow creativity. The manager hated one of my deals it grossed over 300k once I fought back. Open your minds a bit and allow the creativity to come through.
