    I have been working at Groupon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *The people working in the Dublin office are really decent and clever people *Good salary *Good office location *Good perks

    Cons

    *Share price is tanking therefore there is huge pressure from the board causing the company to consistently change direction *North America have too much control over the Dublin office making rash decisions such as severe redundancies and layoffs without any detail of the work being done *The company makes really short term decisions without any real goal of customer retention *The company simply is not customer obsessed - senior leadership fail to look directly into the customer. Instead they have individual motives without any care for the customer and this really shines through. it can be quite tough to watch.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with Get to collaborate with different in a short duration Highly Skilled Engineering and data teams Great work life balance Good work easily gets high visibility to the senior leadership at the company

    Cons

    Frequently changing leadership and company focus Budget constraints all the time due to which technology stack is updated, projects are put on hold, ideas are not implemented and new tools are licenses are not procured. This leads to building a lot of tools in-house which do not always meet industry standards. Finance takes the final call on most of the marketing, engineering and data warehousing requests

    Pros

    * opportunity to learn * you can make an impact

    Cons

    Groupon business model is not sustainable and it is outdated. Dublin office is the worst office I have ever worked in: dirty toilets, leaking pipes and not working ventilation system. There is a lack of meeting rooms and as result the open space is extremely noisy. Tech stack is bizarre. It is mostly in-house build solutions without proper documentation.

    I worked at Groupon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart people, cross functional, global product, very strong performance marketing channel. Freedom to innovate.

    Cons

    Difficult to list cons, perhaps more focus on driving the end to end experience for users. Adding more value through B2B partnerships.
