Senior Account Executive (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJune 7, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: limited communication with home office
A typical day would be soliciting properties for deals to run. To do this you must learn about the properties and the needs of the property. I learned the flash model of sales and it's power. Management was good and supportive. My co-workers were great and amazing people. The hardest part of the job was selling the flash sale model. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was seeing your offer onsite and the number of consumers who have purchased the deal. – less

LS in a nutshell.
Senior Media Consultant (Current Employee), Remote SalesMarch 13, 2013
Pros: flexibility, fast paced, diversity of daily job activity, engaging and vibrant company culture
Cons: inadequate and questionable management practices, mid management qualifications, constant changes, lack of communication within organization
Great company culture and company brand. Able to work remotely and from home with emphasis on partnering and hand choosing the best local prospects to work with and promote. Great marketing concept structure with adequate checks and balances, but job is more suited for recent college grads vs. seasoned and experienced sales professionals. Via new compensation – more... plan, pay structure is much more aggressive and allows for opportunity, but with a questionable future, and tons of press surrounding the company's every move, advancement opportunities seem to have dwindled. This was the initial lure to the company for me personally. Foreign market growth has diminished and a "status quo" approach to our platform surrounds us nationally. – less

Working there
Consumer Services Advocate (Current Employee), Tucson, AZMarch 1, 2013
Pros: pays better than most call centers, benefits are good
Cons: call center, shift flexiblity is usually 10 am - noon to start
Its a call center and regardless of how fun they try to make it sound like keep in mind it is a call center.
The environment is motivating and usually more light hearted but from time to time leadership is lacking. You may get lectures on being treated like an adult then treated like a child and its my observation that the main people causing disruptions – more... in the work place are the people in leadership – less

Great place to work!
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: amazing health insurance, office entertainment
Cons: disapearing industry
Working at LivingSocial was a great experience. The people as well as the management were amazing. The office is a fun place to work and is filled with constant games and activities. LivingSocial definitely represents the motto "Work hard, play hard". Your day consisted of meeting great business owners in NYC and helping them build a huge social network – more... following. You make a lot of connections and have a great name behind you while doing it. – less

Used to be great
Production Coordinator (Former Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 12, 2013
Pros: co-workers
Cons: over worked, lack of advancement, poor communication, pay
Back in 2011 when I joined LS I enjoyed my work, the atmosphere and the prospect of this company however once the Investors showed their disappointment everything went down hill. Leading up to the layoffs things got worse.

- THey have you doing the job os 2-3 people.
- For the industry they are underpaying their employees 20-30%
- There used to be – more... a great company culture, however the events and perks went away
- They expanded too quickly, once they had to shrink they let people go without getting rid of the extra work.

It was great in the beginning but now the employee morale and job prospects are horrible. The hardest hit department isProduction, with 15 hour on call days and work loads that 2 people should be handeling, lack of job growth I wold avoid this at all cost. – less

Fun, Casual Atmosphere with a Hard Working Group
Account Manager (Current Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 4, 2013
Pros: snacks, casual dress, young, flexible schedule
Cons: comp plan changes, lack of goal setting, no cross-team communication
Working at a start up can be both fun and challenging. A typical day at work consists of coming in around 9am and organizing your inbounds and proactive calls. You really attack your day however you chose, as long as it helps you achieve your goal. All of my co-workers are very young and laid back, but hard working people. The hardest part of the job – more... is dealing with the lack of communication and goal setting. Things are still done in a very retroactive way, which can be challenging when you are in a goal oriented role. The most enjoyable part of the job is your ability to manage your own schedule. You are truly the manager of your own book of business. – less

Company thats growing too big and too fast
Senior Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CAJanuary 29, 2013
Pros: great people fun atmosphere
Cons: long hours, unrealistic quotas, over worked and under paid
Great company to work for in the beginning stages of its growth. Now its become too big too fast and is experiencing growing pains. Each quarter they change the comp plan and territories. Very Unrealistic goals.

The advantages are the people you work with! LivingSocial recruited amazing and talented individuals which made coming to work fun and enjoyable.

Great first job spot
Assistant Editor (Former Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: free sodas and snacks.
Cons: long hours and lack of communication
- Work long--real long--but play hard.
- Management doesn't share information unless you're in the circle--try to get there, or else you won't be valued.
- Colleagues are usually very smart, fun, and the best part of the day.
- Web developers and UX folk are cherished here.
- Compensation isn't very generous, but this company is a great place to learn – more... the ropes in the professional world. – less

Horrible communication and hours
LivingSocial Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee), National, Canada, MinnesotaDecember 2, 2012
Pros: growth opportunity for those who worked hard enough and were results driven
Cons: the layoff, it came as quite a shock, their communication was very poor, product launches were never fully ready to go to market.
Overall, I learned a great deal from LivingSocial in my three year tenure. I learned that I am able to rise to any challenge and what I am able to accomplish if I push outside my own boundaries.I started with the company launching markets, worked my way into management, and then into training and development. I was able to show myself what I could do – more... when I wanted it bad enough.

On a typical day, I would put in an average of 10 hours of work. My co-workers became like a family. We worked in a synergistic fluid manner and always did what it took to meet our deadlines, projects, and forecasted goals.

The most challenging part of the job was being based from home and not corporate office in DC. At times the communication cadence would be a bit skewed.

The most rewarding part of the job was seeing my team grow, flourish and accomplish their own goals. Seeing their coaching implemented to true success as a regional sales manager. Leading the nation in net billings and leading by example was enjoyable. It felt great being well respected across the company.

When I became a senior regional sales trainer, the most rewarding portion came from seeing their net billings and deal volume raise post market visit. The feedback from their management team was truly rewarding. – less

Great job. Work with business owners. Work from home. Great training provided to do your job well. However, company future is uncertain.
