Groupon – Why Work For Us?

Who We are, How We Work

We provide a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events.

Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward.  We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.

Be sure to follow our People Blog





































 


We view culture as a composite of our mission and values. A tremendous source of pride for us, our culture is inclusive of the work we do, and how we do it. Embracing change, thinking long-term, and continuously making decisions grounded in customer worship are a few tenets we live by. Surprise is key for us too, and that manifests in numerous areas, though most noticeably in our Editorial voice. We think taking our jobs seriously while not taking ourselves too seriously can be a healthy way to grow as a company.

Groupon Grassroots and Employee Volunteer Program

 

undefined  

A new way to discover local causes, rally together, and lend a helping hand

Groupon Grassroots is our philanthropic arm featuring a wide variety of great local projects that subscribers can support. Every campaign connects consumers with enough people to achieve something awesome they couldn't have done alone. While Groupon helps build local businesses in each market, Groupon Grassroots helps support the communities where these business flourish.

In addition to helping these great causes through our consumers, our employees regularly get a chance to participate in projects themselves. We have also formed a Green Committee that works to keep our workplace sustainable, from getting rid of trash cans to providing reusable mugs for coffee and drinks.

Groupon’s Employee Volunteer Program is how we harness our collective employee power for positive change. Groupon employees regularly volunteer their time, skills and creative insights to help those in need and to help have a measurable impact on growing local economies, promoting distinctive communities and deepening our customers’ attachment to place.  Groupon is uniquely positioned to address a wide range of needs and issues in diverse communities due to the range of skills and talents our diverse staff hold—if there’s a need, we can fill it.

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

    Pros

    Amazing office culture with all the tech company perks like massages, team events and vibrant office environment.
    Inspiring to be part of a growing company that not only focusses on its own growth but also helps small businesses all around Australia to grow and prosper. It is great to know that my deals not only earn me commission but help business owners in my city and also help customers explore their city.
    Great to see a lot of internal promotion and people growing through the ranks. We are all really young and starting our careers but it is cool to see people step into shoes one size too big and grow into them quickly.
    The company focusses heavily on technology and processes, for the past year it has been hard to cope with so much change but it is starting to pay off now and the tools are super helpful.
    It sounds cheesy but everyone is friends.. people know each other in different departments and we hang out as much inside the office as outside.

    Cons

    One of the hard things of working for a fast moving company is that it always changes. It is sometimes frustrating to cope with the change but it is usually for the better.
    Some of the managers are pretty young and I wish they took more time to support their employees and not just focus on the job at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership really care about the business and the employees. This business has gone through a lot over the past 3.5 years but the current leadership team are the best we have had.
    They communicate a lot, sometimes it even feels like too much, but it is great that they constantly share wins and losses and our strategy going forward. It helps us to all work together.
