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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and the ability to work from home when needed Unlimited time off policy Free shuttle to office from many train lines, both Metra and CTA Great people who share Groupon's values Positive work environment and culture Tons of opportunities for internal advancement Focus on training opportunities Good perks and benefits overall

    Cons

    Employees moved from one business unit to another may not be in the correct salary bracket and may need to work with new managers/HR to ensure fair compensation on new team

    Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. We're so happy to hear that you're loving our perks! We're really proud of our flexible environment and how we've cultivated a culture that promotes a positive work-life balance. We agree— our internal mobility program is a great resource to discover new advancement and development opportunities. You're right, a critical part of internal mobility (and our process at Groupon) is ensuring compensation is appropriately adjusted.

    I have been working at Groupon for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced company constantly changing and evolving. Very hands on approach and horizontal structure. Good atmosphere, MNC with a startup mindset.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is evolving slowly toward a slower, more settle company's mindset. The recent restructuration is hitting quite hard on the employee's moral but it is just before going bright again once all this is behind.

    I worked at Groupon full-time

    Pros

    Earn market rate basic and uncapped commission.

    Cons

    Was assured that somebody will help during my maternity leave. Thereafter told me, if any of my accounts are helped by any of my colleague, the account will be passed to them thereafter to be fair to them. Doesn’t matter that it is not fair to me. Offered 100% commission to be given to colleague who help in the meantime and account to remain with me thereafter but was flatly rejected.

    Thank you for letting us know about your experience with maternity leave. We hope that you felt comfortable addressing your concerns via one of the reporting options available to Groupon employees: your manager, our HR team, ethicspoint (our anonymous reporting hotline), or the compliance team. Providing them with more information would allow them to take appropriate action. We strive to continuously support parents with great benefits, so we appreciate you for sharing your feedback.
