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

    Pros

    Expanding with new energy and sales driven from the top down. Support, encouragement and room for advancement. Ongoing training support from zero experience to advanced skills. Comprehensive compensation plan with commission and unlimited PTO. This is a place you can make an impact. YOU ARE TRULY GIVEN A CHANCE and evaluated on your ability AND effort. They will push you to be your best and support you in areas that you still need to develop. A supportive sales environment-YES YOU HEARD THAT CORRECTLY!!

    Cons

    Fast paced environment with constant innovation-but that's not a bad thing -

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The new energy in the office since mid year is incredible and inspirational!

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

    Pros

    Fun environment
    No dress code
    Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    Poor salary compared to other employers
    No employee recognition unless you suck up to management
    It’s all politics

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know what doesn’t go unnoticed for their hard work.
    Stop favoriting reps - it’s very noticeable and makes all the other ones feel like their not valuable
    I know it’s sales but felt like you’re only valued as a number and nothing else

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

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, awesome office culture, young and flexible management, ability to move between departments and move up, tons of different opportunities (sales, account management, creative roles, etc.)

    Cons

    Management is short-sighted and willing to lose valuable employees, lots of turnover

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better based on industry standards and be flexible with valuable employees in order to keep them around - the more people who leave will make other employees feel unstable or unsure if they should stay too.
