      Pros

      Very good 8-week training and if you don't close the required amount of contracts you're cut. Work environment and the people are absolutely awesome, but that's the only thing that kept me there

      Cons

      They have no customer service department, so when regular customers try to call in to complain they end up talking to a BDR or someone random who most likely can't help. Very poor reviews from the consumer side and businesses Groupon work(ed) with. The company has changed a lot but it's hard to communicate those changes to business owners who immediately hangup once they hear "Groupon"

      Pros

      offers a good entry-level sales program that allows recent college graduates to transition from school to work, casual work environment

      Cons

      -higher-ups unwilling to adapt to market changes, don't address the problems that employees are concerned about regarding future of company -riding the wave on being a household name- even though they have been on a downward spiral -unwilling to change sales strategy and overall product, even though an overwhelming majority of "local businesses" refuse to work with Groupon -employees in entry level positions openly talk about their job search within months of starting at Groupon - many people felt "stuck"
