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

    Pros

    Groupon has an incredible, engaging, & lively group of employees. Each employee brings their own unique self to work and it creates a fun environment. It is nice to come to work and know you're appreciated for who you are.

    Cons

    Career Progression is amazing at Groupon but works best for employees who raise their hand and inquire about it; Career Progression is not streamlined for all but is there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize your employees.

    Keep working hard and driving the business where it needs to go. We are all rooting for you!

    Pros

    One of the strengths of Groupon as an employer is its great work culture.Very supportive and collaborative work environment. The benefits are pretty good. Unlimited PTO policy is really amazing, especially at times when you have unexpected need for time off. They have standard health / Dental and Vision

    Cons

    High attrition across the company and also at the leadership levels. This leads to frequent re-orgs, sometimes change in direction and focus.
