    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No work pressure or work from home, basically nothing that will worry you after office hours.
    Good work environment

    Cons

    Heavily biased management, this is mostly as the work is nothing that requires any skilled labour and the managers clearly carry a tone that asks you to walkout any time you need. Salary is way below standards and professionalism is close to ZERO with Team lead and the manager who decide your leave based on cab routes( complicated)

    Projects are limited hence learning curve is bare minimum. You gain very less and have lot of fun.

    Think a lot if you want to join here

    Advice to Management

    Please come with some good pay scale.
    Stop treating employees like KIDS
    Professional beahviour needs to be implimented
