    Director in Seattle, WA
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Zillow

    Pros

    Terrific people, most of whom have backgrounds from some of the top area companies like MS, Expedia, and Amazon. Big industry ripe for change- real estate is a multi-billion dollar category stuck in the dark ages. Chance to work on a disruptive business. Good work-life balance for a start up. Interesting and challenging work- you will work on projects that are core to the company and to its vision.

    Cons

    Stingy stock grants- which is surprising given that this is what should be motivating employees. Liquidity event is many years away- plan on at least 3-4 years before your stock has value. Still struggling to drive revenue- advertising is an ok way to go, but the company needs more revenue streams. Limited career upside as it is a small company.
