    Pros

    Free lunch (albeit, terrible lunch). Free snacks. Free beverages. Somewhat flexible work hours, unless you're in sales, people don't seem to show up to work until 10AM or so and probably leave around 3pm. Pet friendly. Leader in digital coupon space with lots of retailer partnerships and expansive network.

    Cons

    Free food is a nice perk IF you get any. Company was becoming stingy and ordering less portions despite more headcount. Aloof upper management that is severely out of touch with the company solutions and hurdles. They expect you to sell sell sell products that just don't perform. Old school products and platforms, hard to be innovative in this space. No career trajectory here and high turnover. The company is clearly going through growing pains after becoming public, but at the expense of the staff.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, friendly, free food and drinks. Good atmosphere. Poker tournament, exercise room, lots of employees activities.

    Cons

    When all companies trying to move forward, Operations and IT going backward. We were told no more VMs. No more storage. Let's buy physical box instead without warranty. Don't complain to HR. If you do, you be out of here in a month. I personally seen 6 ppl complaint and they are no longer here. No communication on project, status, etc.. Very sad.

    Pros

    - Extremely well-positioned in a burgeoning industry (digital coupons) - High-likelihood of success in the public market. IPO is imminent within 2 years or less - Easy workload (i.e., low expectations from business) - Lots of free food & drinks, including daily catered lunches - Company sponsored "employee bonding" events (poker tournaments, Halloween contests, etc.) - Awesome company luxury box at SF Giants games (best box in the stadium). Company regularly makes tickets available to the employees, including World Series games! - Pets are allowed in the office - Excellent employee-referral program

    Cons

    - Unproven, inexperienced and arrogant management team (in some, not all, departments) - Management team not experienced in how to run an Internet, e-Commerce company - Most of the leaders in the company are from the old, traditional coupon business. - Company culture is forced. No "team spirit". Everyone is out for themselves, including most managers - Decisions are unilaterally made from the top down - Innovation and risk-taking are not encouraged - No employee training or career development plans - No transparency in how promotions/employee evaluations are made - Very uninspiring office space...at least in main building...(think Office Space, only without all the glamour)

    I'm happy to report that Treadmill Desks are being installed in each of our Mountain View buildings this week. Hopefully this will help combat the challenges associated with all the great free food.
