Groupon is one of the fastest growing companies in history; from a staff of 10 to a staff of 10,000+ in three short years. As our own CEO says, “Nobody should grow that fast. Nobody.” Now that the dust has settled a bit and we’re stabilizing, how does engineering retro-fit a culture across 8 major development centers on several different continents? Truth be told, we’re still learning. Doc Norton, Groupon’s Global Director of Engineering Culture shares the philosophy, successes, and failures as he tells the story of Groupon’s rapid growth and movement toward a Global Engineering Culture.

  • I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better... Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL." For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger." I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller... you just have to get good with your hands." Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins ▲▲▲ https://tinyurl.com/yaygh4xh
