Good for First Time Employment
Local Editor (Former Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 12, 2015
I was laid off from this company in a time of transition just three months after I was hired. I believe the company management can make major strides to improve simply by making different hiring decisions and also by readjusting what LivingSocial is at the end of the day.

The company atmosphere, work environment, coworker attitude, and duties/ responsibilities were all great in their own way. I enjoyed my time at the company and just wished I hadn't moved to the DC area just to be laid off so quickly.

Great job, poor job security
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 1, 2014
I (unfortunately) only worked for LivingSocial for 6 months. The new CEO decided to lay off myself and 399 of my "closest friends" (including my boss and her boss). I don't see a bright future for the company -- hopefully all of these changes will bring about new growth for them. Best wishes.

Great culture, got a new CEO and laid off everyone they had hired in the past couple months. All in all about 20% of the company is gone.

Good marketing for merchants, poor merchant service
Marketing Consultant (Current Employee), Austin, TXNovember 18, 2014
Pros: benefits, culture, product
Cons: company organization, lay-offs, lack of communication to employees including goals, commissions, pay structure. lack of communication to merchants
LivingSocial has a great marketing plan for merchants looking to grow their business and create a buzz from new customers and customer feedback. LivingSocial lacks organization on the backend. As LivingSocial continues to evolve and hire new "higher-ups" they are leaving behind the basis of any good sales company: A sales team that builds customer relationships and maintains a happy book of business…

Now that LivingSocial has changed their platform on outside sales and tries to move away from the daily deal space, I am interested to see how they flourish.

Fun workplace with many rotating pieces
Marketing Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCOctober 27, 2014
LivingSocial provides an excellent work environment for young, hungry people in the sales world. The day-to-day life allows for opportunities to converse with many different types of business owners in a variety of industries. There has been a major shift in the sales process; 6 months ago there was a prospecting approach to the partnership acquisitions, now, it is strictly lead-based with no exceptions. My coworkers were nice, however they lacked the what ought to be identifiable quality of being "social" with one another.

Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: high commissions
Cons: being a remote employee
Overall my experience working with Living Social was a good one. I was an outside sales rep working remotely.

A typical day at work consisted of conference calls in the morning, administrative work, followed by cold calling. The afternoons were left for going out on appointments.

Since I was a remote employee I didn't have much interaction with coworkers in person. My interaction with them was strictly on conference calls or when we got together for yearly conferences. I would say that was the hardest part of the job. The fact that I was so distant from other colleagues. And the most enjoyable part of my job was the rewarding paychecks. Not only was it nice to receive it but it was also a reflection of my hard work and great accounts I signed up.
