Great job, poor job security
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 1, 2014
I (unfortunately) only worked for LivingSocial for 6 months. The new CEO decided to lay off myself and 399 of my "closest friends" (including my boss and her boss). I don't see a bright future for the company -- hopefully all of these changes will bring about new growth for them. Best wishes.

Account Specialist (Former Employee), Torrance, CANovember 25, 2014
Great culture, got a new CEO and laid off everyone they had hired in the past couple months. All in all about 20% of the company is gone.

Good marketing for merchants, poor merchant service
Marketing Consultant (Current Employee), Austin, TXNovember 18, 2014
Pros: benefits, culture, product
Cons: company organization, lay-offs, lack of communication to employees including goals, commissions, pay structure. lack of communication to merchants
LivingSocial has a great marketing plan for merchants looking to grow their business and create a buzz from new customers and customer feedback. LivingSocial lacks organization on the backend. As LivingSocial continues to evolve and hire new "higher-ups" they are leaving behind the basis of any good sales company: A sales team that builds customer relationships – more... and maintains a happy book of business…

Now that LivingSocial has changed their platform on outside sales and tries to move away from the daily deal space, I am interested to see how they flourish. – less

Fun workplace with many rotating pieces
Marketing Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCOctober 27, 2014
LivingSocial provides an excellent work environment for young, hungry people in the sales world. The day-to-day life allows for opportunities to converse with many different types of business owners in a variety of industries. There has been a major shift in the sales process; 6 months ago there was a prospecting approach to the partnership acquisitions, – more... now, it is strictly lead-based with no exceptions. My coworkers were nice, however they lacked the what ought to be identifiable quality of being "social" with one another. – less

Growing Business
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: high commissions
Cons: being a remote employee
Overall my experience working with Living Social was a good one. I was an outside sales rep working remotely.

A typical day at work consisted of conference calls in the morning, administrative work, followed by cold calling. The afternoons were left for going out on appointments.

Since I was a remote employee I didn't have much interaction with coworkers – more... in person. My interaction with them was strictly on conference calls or when we got together for yearly conferences. I would say that was the hardest part of the job. The fact that I was so distant from other colleagues. And the most enjoyable part of my job was the rewarding paychecks. Not only was it nice to receive it but it was also a reflection of my hard work and great accounts I signed up. – less

Was once on top but now is lost....
Inside Sales/Marketing Specialist - Nationwide (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CAJune 19, 2014
Pros: fun atmosphere and good people.
Cons: lack of advancement opportunities.
Typical day including calling between 60-80 businesses and describing how a LivingSocial promotion works to gain interest in the hopes of running a promotion. Had the pleasure of working with some great sales people whom I'm still in contact with but who are no longer at LivingSocial due to change of environment and lack of job security and/or advancements. – more... This company is hurting from the top-down and not sure if they will recover. – less

great place to work for with good management style
Consumer Services Representative (Current Employee), tucson, arizonaMay 30, 2014
Pros: free snacks and drinks and voluntary time off available
Cons: not working 5 days straight/having to work weekends
my typical day consists of answering phones and emails; I've learned that good customer service is very important in all customer service positions; I've learned to treat others like I would like to be treated. Management has an open door policy Co-workers are team-players and fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was the initial training period – more... where you had to learn the different computer screens but it became much easier once training was completed. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we acknowledge others for a job well done or for birthdays and our frequent potlucks is always enjoyable. – less

Poor management
Inside Sales/Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), DCApril 15, 2014
The companies management is extremely unorganized. The pay scale and commission is not what they explain in the interview. You work too much for little pay. Laid back environment for dressing. They will micro manage you.

Editors encouraged total creativity. Staff was fun, dedicated and great at what they do (despite the proximity to the office ball pit and arcade).
