Software QA Engineer

"Groupon uses an agile process. This means fast pace and documentation is not always there. They use an open seating so tI can get noisy at times. Work hours were flexible but had core hours. Lunch was provided for emplyees at no cost. Company is presently experiencing growing problems with getting software out with funcionality and reliability desired."

Account Executive
in Chicago, IL

What do you like about working at Groupon?

"Start-up Culture in the beginning was great but slowly faded away as Groupon rapidly grew. If your out of college or in your early twenties its a great job and your working with like-minded individuals."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Just know it can be hit or miss at Groupon. It all depends on who your direct supervisor is and the market your given. Often talent is overlooked and not rewarded which has caused many of their top sales reps to leave the company."

What don't you like about working at Groupon?

"Upper management expected all of their markets to grow 10% month over month. These expectations were held in every single market when it was obvious that Groupon had already started to plateau in most markets."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Groupon grew so quickly that upper management had a difficult time containing it. They adjusted by promoting top sales reps to management strictly based on performance not taking into consideration leadership/management skills. This led to a group of kids running the company..."

Senior Account Executive
in Chicago, IL

What do you like about working at Groupon?

"The culture is great, young people, great money, great opportunity for growth."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Hard work definitely gets noticed, it's just that when you move territories, it's mostly a lateral move. The potential to make more money is there, but it takes time every time you move positions. Most people want management opportunities, but only a select few are chosen internally, but mostly they are hired from the outside, which is a BIG confidence bust."

What don't you like about working at Groupon?

"The micromanagement is getting to a point where it is ridiculous. Many of us joined the company in the early stages to have more autonomy, but now everything is so suppressed that it is making the employees less efficient. Also, the micromanaged requirements change based on how the company is performing on every particular day/week."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"It's hard to say, the dynamic and extraordinary growth has put the company in a tough position. The current situations that we are dealing with as employees are necessary for the company to survive. If I could have done anything about it, I would not have let the company grow as quickly as it did and also go through the IPO as quickly as we did."
