    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

    Pros

    young company, full of energy, great rallys for team spirit

    Cons

    recognition of geos outside of the US are very little. money only gets distributed to goes where they want to grow - not where the success is. watch out for HR, they are there to look after the company - not you - not matter what they say.. I've seen many people be burned over time.. for things like sponsorship or even having a baby!!! and this is meant to be a progressive company.. beware. Ive also seen a lot of responses from Groupon to Glassdoor reviews.. and they take an interesting approach at defaming the review. This is one of their problems, you (as a staff member) cant have an opinion.
