    Pros

    You will make some awesome friends and forge lasting friendships
    Heath and Dental Benefits
    It's a job. It will pay your bills for the most part

    Cons

    They do not value their Sales Employees
    Upper Management is mediocre, has no idea what they are doing.
    Discriminatory and inappropriate behavior goes on a lot and no one is reprimanded
    No Transparency

    If you ask questions they either won't get answered( because they don't know) or your job will be threatened because you will seem too "agressive"
    No potential for Growth
    They pay is awful. We are in D.C. how do you expect for us to survive on this below market salary?
    Passive Agressive
    Micro-Managing

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees( especially sales)
    Actually reprimand employees for discriminatory and inappropriate behavior
    Hire people in upper management who actually know what they are doing

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

    Pros

    Benefits (health, vision, dental)

    Great co-workers

    Cons

    Constant shift in company direction

    LAYOFFS - Around 80% of the company has been laid off or has quit

    No free lunch (very limited free snacks)

    People are always gossiping about layoffs or getting fired

    No career growth or promotions

    Very few people get raises

    Senior management makes poor business decisions

    Most products from LivingSocial have failed or were not profitable

    Advice to Management

    If Restaurants Plus is the future of the company, then hire more people to make it successful like product managers, project managers, Dev, and engineering.

    Stop shifting direction every 3 months.

    Fun group of part-time employees with young and creative management. Pay was OK for part-time work.

    Company is controlled by upper management most likely not in your city, makes company-wide changes more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the regional cities that do well. They know what they are doing!
