    Pros

    Amazing culture, lots of interesting people, you can be yourself without having much corporate standards to adhere. Feels like you are working with friends rather than colleagues.

    Maybe a bit too dynamic environment with quick shift of business priorities

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

    Pros

    Really invested in employee welfare, lots of opportunities to connect with other employees globally and do good things. I have seen/experienced decent career progression.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be difficult for decisions/projects to be signed off by the various levels of management. Can feel quite 'corporate' at times where those making the decisions are not fully aware of the day-to-day realities.
