Fun Company for New Graduates, Not Promising 5 Years Later
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 30, 2018
Groupon is an excellent company to work for to get your foot in the door and to start off your career, however, other than cool track jackets for 2 year & 5 year employees, there isn't much of a reason to really stay at the company. Due to this being a primarily young company with the notion that everybody in the office is replaceable, they get away with being able to pay below the market average for certain job roles and skill sets. This often comes as a shock to HR in exit interviews, but there isn't incentive to retain good employees once they realize their market worth. I came to this company for the experience, with the understanding that this wasn't going to be a long-term company to stick around with, and the culture at Groupon truly cannot be beat. However, it is not a place to have longer than a five year plan, unless they work on ways to incentivize tenure and compensate based off of skill set and duties.
Amazing Company Culture
Horrible pay structure
