Vendor Manager (Current Employee) –  London2 December 2019
Do not work here.
A stressful place to work with terrible management and no progression.
The most enjoyable part of the day is going home.
The hardest part of the job is working with unsupportive management.

Poor Management
Vendor Manager (Former Employee) –  London12 September 2019
I found the management at Groupon very poor. A lot of blame culture with not much support. Sometimes staff felt bullied and there was a lot of negative energy in the office. This lead to Groupon loosing a lot of good talent which is a real shame as the company has so much potential.

Not a great place to work for
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  London23 May 2019
Company is devided in 4 lines of business (goods, Local, National and Travel). It can be a very different picture between each department, each team and who is your manager. Unfortunately the company only listens to managers and staff have no input when it comes to feedback besides a stupid survey that gets sent once a month.
No opportunity to grow, or move between departments as its all in your Line Manager hands to make your life hard if they want to. Or you could be lucky to work from the 1st day in the right team/department, then it could be a good place to be in. Very few managers are actually good and they care about their staff. Company should invest a lot more in a work culture, educate managers that they need to promote their staff and allow them to move to other departments freely so you don't lose out on Talent.

Groupon Lacks in: Communication, resources, training, mentoring and proper feedback system EQUALLY between managers and staff.
Pros
Great employees all across
Cons
Management and limited opportunities

Business Development Consultant (Current Employee) –  London10 November 2018
Tough job but with resilience and consistency, you'll do well. Opportunity to learn a lot and develop personal skills. Management however is questionable and other employees can tend to be very childish.
Pros
free breakfast, coffee machine, breakout areas, sociable hours
Cons

Vendor Manager (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London11 July 2017
Every day is the same at Groupon. If you're from a traditional retail background, working here won't help you and you will find it hard to adjust. They say they want you to plan in advance like a normal retailer, but you will find yourself firefighting constantly to find deals to go live, often within the same week of finding them.

Management don't really care about you or your progression, they just want to see numbers. The people however, are great.
Pros
location, commission structure
Cons
management, no set path for progression

Full On, Direct, Competitive.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Sheffield, South Yorkshire8 February 2017
This role typically put earnings ahead of family life.
A fast pace and highly competitive marketplace with high targets and equally high earnings.
Although I loved the role and certainly the earnings, I would not be looking to enter a similar marketplace looking forward.
Pros
Earnings. Customer Database. customer Success.
Cons
Hours.

Nice people, bad leadership.
Quality Assurance (Current Employee) –  London20 June 2016
A young company plagued with issues, bad business moves and poor leadership.

You see a companies true colours when a restructuring process starts. This is when the poor organisational, structure and lack of support comes into play.

Met some lovely people but it is not a safe place to work but good to make a quick buck in the sales teams.
Pros
good people
Cons
bad leadership

Senior Data Entry Assistant (Former Employee) –  London, ENG3 January 2016
The company's structure is different in comparison to working in a formal professional setting. A lot of work needs to be done at Groupon from the top to bottom as there is a lack of professionalism across the board (from Senior management to junior employees)
Pros
Free fruits any other day
Cons
Long hours (9am - 6pm)

Fun work place, but not a place for a career
Senior New Business Consultant (Current Employee) –  London26 November 2015
You have to be totally self motivated here. There is no team, mangers support, help from anyone,very little and poor communication. It's dog eat dog and it's either sink or swim. No formal structure or career advancement. There is a laid back nice working atmosphere but that is more down to the people that work here. Rules are constantly changed and never in the favor of the staff.
Pros
good people, let you get on with what you wnat to do
Cons
No progression, help and support, constant changing of rules poorly communicated

Poor commission structure, massive changes in company structure
New Business Sales (Current Employee) –  London21 October 2015
Only those who have been with the company a long time are happy there. Special privileges given to those who are there many years which others can't benefit from.

Really miserable on benefits and commission, and have to work extremely hard to do target
