Groupon goes public today. It looks like its going to be a hot IPO.
To celebrate, Groupon’s Chicago sales bosses are throwing a party for the troops this weekend. They want to reward them for a quarter that brought Groupon close to break even.
The party, we’re told, will be centered around a drinking game called Flip Cup.
Sources say working in Groupon sales is like working in a boiler room – that it has become a very intense, competive job. So it makes sense that, even as they relax, the people on this team are being pitted against each other.
(We’re in a competitive industry, too, so this party sounds like fun to us. In fact, we’re pretty sure we’d beat all comers – Groupon sales people, included – in Flip Cup or any other game. Bring it.)
If you went to an American institution of higher learning in the past 20 years, you’ve heard of Flip Cup.
