If you login with that user on a computer (in the domain), open command prompt and run this command;

net user /domain "username"

This will give you a small report about this user login with appropriate AD group membership.

PS - If you have plenty of users then you may need to look at RSAT or admin tool where you will get access to Active directory users and computers snapin.
