    Pros

    There is so much diversity and different cultures in the office and you never feel like you don't belong there. Everyone is super helpful, accommodating and fun (I guess its part of the requisites to work there :-)

    Cons

    Its a fast paced company and learning never ends you are always on your toes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on the transparency policy!

    I have been working at Groupon full-time

    Pros

    - Relaxed Atmosphere

    - No mirco management

    - Great people - diverse and inclusive

    - Opportunities to get involved in projects outside of your team

    - Nice office space

    - Fast paced

    - Transparent

    - You're a person not a number - which does not happen often in large companies.

    - Supportive management when escalated.

    Cons

    - International collaboration and acknowledgement is lacking

    - Not very policy driven which can lead to problems down the line

    - Ownership of issues not taken by management, often put back on staff

    Advice to Management

    Work on ownership within management structure, this will allow for more growth and learning opportunities within teams.

    Other than that keep up the amazing work!!!

    Pros

    Really Nice People, Office Atmosphere is pretty relaxed, Purposeful Meetings. Nice Office. Money is quite decent in some departments.

    Cons

    Not enough emphasis on Social Events and Team Bonding which breeds inter-company collaboration and job enjoyment. Slow moving processes like lots of big companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to improve the Employee Experience.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a really great culture in the office where that cultivates a Collaborative and Respectful communication. This is driven by the senior management who are really passionate about the office. They pride themselves on a Inclusive and Diverse work place. Your work is appreciated and so are you which is hard to come by in large multi nationals.
    The office is really Social and there's lots to get involved in.
    It's not like any other Groupon office. There is a really good mentoring culture and you feel like your manager is really driving you for success.

    Cons

    Compensation needs to be reviewed and become more competitive

    Advice to Management

    It is an incredibly hard working office that has so many pros but where we fall down is that our compensation is not competitive. Which can be improved. However even though that is an issue for some i would still refer a friend to join the team here.
