TedCruz'sCrazyDad: 3,416 employees?


I could see a large sales force, but a shop of 50 tech folks could keep that place running.

Did they ever make a profit, or did they just take this long to piss away all their seed capital?

Groupon... now there's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time.

I think the last time I used them was in 2010? 2011?

I'm amazed it still exists. The only deals I ever got from them were for places that sucked so much nobody wanted to go there.

Actually. Shoot. I think I still should have restaurant.com credit from a livingsocial.com deal I bought like, 10 years ago. I should check. If my login still works?

Shouldn't every company only perform mission critical tasks? I work for a large corporation and get forced into training classes where I just sit there and bewilderingly think "WTF are we doing?"
