Very fun, and quirky, and high energy company. They provide you with more than enough training and help along the way. Bad base pay, but ability to make way more.

Upper management Turnover and politics
Business Development Director (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 27, 2019
Overall good experience management needs upward growth. They have too much politics involved in promotions. Also, too many failed products and too much turnover in upper management

Groupon is a different type of sales job because no business is alike and this allows you to be different with your approach to selling. People are smart here too.
Pros

Cons
low base pay

I enjoyed working there
Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 22, 2019
I enjoyed working there. Generally people seemed happy around me. Job security is a bit shaky.

Typical star-up with some processes working well. Other areas where I believe they should be further along. The recruiting team was kind of all over the place with a very scattered approach with changing recruiters around too much and having 3-4 different recruiters work on the exact same role.

Great People!
Chicago IL Consumer Fraud Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 22, 2018
Chances are very strong that if you ask someone why they love working at Groupon they will tell you it's because of the people. I am no different! I have been very fortunate to work with such an excellent group of committed individuals.

Pretty decent place to work
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 22, 2019
Most of my time at Groupon was okay. In almost all of my positions, I was given the opportunity to work on special projects and learn new skills, and I'm grateful for the managers who challenged me. Near the end of my time there, things were a bit slower so there weren't as many opportunities for projects which wasn't ideal.

acquaintance of new products
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 31, 2019
I have worked min. 7-9 hours during the weekdays as a freelancer. Groupon's interface is very simple for new learners and beginners.The most entertainable part of work is finding new product's features when uploading this to the system.

Fun Environment and Good Pay
Assistant Buyer (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 6, 2019
Groupon is a great company. Unlimited PTO and good pay. The two biggest downsides are that upper management is good however direct managers are not trained to be managers and it creates a negative space. The second downside is that 90% of the work can be done remotely however work from home is rarely allowed which is very frusterating

Flailing about
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 16, 2018
They don't seem to have a strategy for the fact that their main business model is failing. Engineering is being sent overseas and corporate politics are wreaking havoc on established teams.
Pros
Free drinks
Cons
Poor benefits

Interesting sales experience.
Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 12, 2019
The work consisted of first coming up with new methods to add to the Groupon client base. I decided to cold approach in a very efficient manner, speaking to 100 students in less than 2 hours with half or more signing up for Groupon.

Not the best enviroment
Buyer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 28, 2018
There are def. favorites and not everyone gets the same growth and learning opportunities. There are also a lot of people that do not work / while others have to work twice as hard to make up for that. Management and others do not want to create conflict so they try to avoid issues instead of streamlining or trying to help people which would help teams and grow the business.
Pros
Unlimited PTO
Cons
Once they decide they want you gone, no one is going to help you, and just make your life as difficult as possible until you leave, I have seen it done to over 4 people in the year and a half

None
Senior Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 12, 2018
Communicating with internal employees and suppliers. Promotion is not done from knowledge of the job. Workplace culture is okay. Hardest part of the job is the no compensation, but expected to take a bigger workload. Most enjoyable is working on the computer all day. Very low phone contact.

easy job, but if you miss a few days might be hard to meet your target. great entry level position for someone just getting into the sales field or out of college.

Good Training
Division Sales Manager - San Francisco, CA (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 26, 2018
Groupon has fantastic sales training, on occasion almost too much. Sometimes they would have one too many meetings during the day, which would take away from selling, if you were a selling manager. The culture @ HQ was much better than if you were off campus in working from home, it can get a bit lonely.
Pros
Good Brand to sell
Cons
Ageism, not a great career path unless you lived in Chicago.
