    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

    nice free lunches and generally speaking the compensation and benefits are fair

    Cons

    terrible leadership, no communication about vision and strategy, no teamwork, most leaders are walking around afraid that they will lose their job so therefore they do nothing to standup to the top executives, place is a continual revolving door

    Pros

    even the free lunches are terrible

    Cons

    The executive management team is in a fantasy world- low on skill, planning and communication, high on ridiculous expectations and micromanagement. The silly corporate events like dressing up for an all day Halloween party or Walking Dead Movie Nights do nothing for real team building or building the skills of the employees. There is virtually no opportunity for anyone here, it is disorganized, no goals, no real business plan, no team or individual objectives. This company is a revolving door of leaders and employees - and Customers. Attrition is incredibly high between people getting the heck out and them firing and replacing people, only to fire the next one and rehire. Trust in leadership and CEO is absolutely minimal and they are scrambling to find the next big thing that may save this place. It is not worth saving.

    Pros

    Good benefits package, including free lunch

    Cons

    Employees rise through the ranks based purely on personal friendships with management versus merit leading to bitterness and gross incompetence

    Pros

    My favorite things so far are the work-life balance, free lunch and snacks, unlimited vacation, treadmill desks, and general positive and friendly attitudes. A lot of fun employee activities here!

    Cons

    Open work space in combination with the lack of small conference rooms. I also think there is room for improvement in terms of implementing corporate-wide systems/process/tools.

    Pros

    Free catered lunch and snacks.

    Cons

    High turnover, contract-to-fulltime promises are rarely fulfilled, lack of career development, higher ups are overpaid and don't care about your wellbeing (which also leads to high turnover in both lower and higher positions), cubicles. The company is still structured with lots of politics and hierarchy but tries to be "new Silicon Valley."
