    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee Benefits programs are the best in the industry - Spot awards, Quarterly awards, Birthday gift , Cab facilities , Work from Home, unlimited soft drinks, snacks, Quarterly team lunch/dinner/outing, Annual Summer Party event food and Beverages, Best in industry Medical insurance plan covering parents as well, Best in industry Personal Accidental and Group Term Life Insurance.

    Since there is lot of liberty given to employees some times employees take advantage of the same for personal gain. Eg: Snack in vending machines are some time taken home by employees at the end of the day work, mishandling of the internal game equipment and other interiors causing damages...

    Advice to Management

    Long term vision/goal of the Company should be done every month to boost the confidence level in employees ..
