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


    Groupon Finance offers you a ton of exposure to upper management (e.g. being a part of email chains with the CEO/CFO). There are plenty of chances to prove yourself and there are a lot of smart, young, enthusiastic people to learn from. If you're focused on learning early in your career, this is the place to be. There's a lot of work to go around depending on your role and a lot of it is really good analysis work getting you to think outside the box.


    Transparency with everything that is going on around the organization is certainly lacking. People will join the team or get promoted or more and you won't hear about it unless you talk to someone who knows. They're working on improving this but aren't currently close

    Advice to Management

    Make your entire finance organization aware of what's going on in the organization! It doesn't have to be anything too formal but promotions/people leaving/people arriving would be nice to know about

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon.


    First round interview with HR- behavioral questions with focus on why specifically Groupon, why corporate finance (fp&a) vs other roles in finance. They asked if I use Groupon. They asked why I was interested in technology. They asked why I was interested in Chicago. Mostly basic behavioral questions with strong emphasis on "Why Groupon" type questions.
