      Pros

      Wear what you want to work. No stuffy corporate clothes.

      Cons

      Where do I start... The focus is solely on sales. No other departments matter regardless of the hours and hard work they put in. Horrible....just horrible HR team. They are more concerned with their weekends, hair, makeup etc, rather than doing their job and concentrating on employees. Bad attitudes, unwilling to help and just very unprofessional. The firing/redundancy process is disgusting. No empathy or compassion shown at all. Very ruthless and uncaring. Replacing people straight away. Illegal?? People in management don't know what they are doing. Untrained, unqualified. Poor people skills and zero communication. Unable to lead effectively or motivate staff. Management talking disrespectfully and badly around staff about other employees. Mass firing/redundancy. No transparency or reasons given to staff which contributes to the already unstable, negative and chaotic work environment. Very very unethical behaviour. Deceptive. Wouldn't be surprised if an outsider was to look into Groupon's paperwork and systems and found an element of cheating and trickery. Failure to deal with any issues that arise. Groupon's go to 'solution' is to sweep it away and let good, hardworking, ethical people go rather than solve the problem. The 'Groupon culture' sucks. They will work you into the ground with no reward or recognition. Upper management jobs and promotions given to 'favourites', and spouses of other management rather than to people who actually do a great job and deserve it. Ridiculously high staff turnover. Underpaid. Morally and ethically questionable business practice.

      Pros

      Great culture within the Phoenix group and leadership in the office cares that their reps excel, not just hit goal

      Cons

      Can be frustrating with last minute changes sent from the top and poor communication from the top leaders. Comp is regularly changed around so can be hard to have a great idea of pacing towards OTE
