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.
