Fun Company to work for
Director, Business Development, Food and Beverage (Current Employee) –  Strongsville, OH20 November 2017
Groupon is a great company to work for. They reward for hard work and dedication but believe in work/family balance. The Corporate office was laid back with pool table, tiki. bar and swings. Groupon is well run and offers a lot of training and skill development.
Pros
Great healthcare, unlimited paid time off, fun, relaxed corporate office

A wonderful place to work if you are a manager
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  Chicago, IL18 November 2017
Groupon takes care of its management. The compensation structure is very top heavy. The staff, seniors, and other employees who work hard every day to ensure that profits are rolling in are not included in the bonus structure. Additionally, they are compensated well below the industry average.

Management is looking for people who are overly qualified and have three years of accounting experience to settle for a salary of $55k, yet are astonished when no one wants to take the position.

The Company needs to invest in its people more in order to avoid horrendous turnover.
Pros
Casual dress code
Cons
Lack of transparency in management, poor compensation, no 401k match

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Chennai, Tamil Nadu12 November 2017
Groupon is the best place to work. But, there will be no reorganization for your efforts and there is job security. There are some seasonal benefits. But, there is no salary increment plan.

The MySpace of tech companies
Editorial Staff (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL7 November 2017
Groupon started out as a great company. It cared about the city, it cared about its employees, it cared about its customers. Now? It's a shell of what it used to be. It's money hungry, creatively stifled, and hemorrhaging talent and funds like nobodies business. I expect Groupon to be the next Enron.
Pros
Unlimited time off
Cons
Outsourcing

Experience Expert (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL3 November 2017
Management was very supportive and encouraging. My bosses were very easy to communicate with and they were genuine people. Unfortunately, my department was eliminated and there was no way to avoid being laid off.

Excelente lugar para trabajar
Redactor Creativo/ Escritor Humorísco (Former Employee) –  Vitacura, Región Metropolitana31 October 2017
Muy buena empresa, promueven las buenas practicas a traves del humor y el compañerismo. El trato es lineal y directo. El gerente es uno más y no se nota la jerarquía. Hay refrigeradores llenos de comida todas las mañanas para tomar desayuno (además de frutas) hay salas de video juegos para soltar las trabas mentales al momento de escribir. Los breaks se pueden tomar en cualquier momento. Se trabaja con metas diaras que hay que saber cumplir. Los fines de semana se realizan los viernes felices para amenizar el termino de semana.
Pros
Seguro complementario de salud, semana Groupon, desayuno, breaks libres, videojuegos y taca taca
Cons
Bajo sueldo para la cantidad de trabajo

They laid us off
Customer Experience Expert (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MD25 October 2017
They laid us off when they partnered with grubhub. The supervisors were power-high and inefficient. Working remotely was cool but the work was daunting. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone mainly because the position no longer exists.

Not a fit for outside sales
Outside Sales Territory Manager, Greater Atlanta (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA26 September 2017
Not a fair job for outside sales. Chicago based employees have an advantage. No opportunity for growth. The company changes rules very quickly which makes sales a moving target.
