    I have been working at Zillow

    Pros

    Smart people - Zillow is a the place to experience awesome marketing and media product innovation. Transparency and trust - Zillow leadership communicates the details of the business' performance to all employees regularly. Ethics & ideals - despite being extremely ambitious A-type entrepreneurs, it's a rare honor to work with a team that really tries to do the right thing and who are leaving the RE industry better...

    Cons

    Thin option allocations in a small co. with a declining book value. Top heavy org is unnecessarily political for a small company.

    Advice to Management

    Wear sunscreen.

    I worked at Zillow

    Pros

    Benefits are solid. A ton of opportunity to own your career development. Fast-moving, so there’s always a new challenge or opportunity to take on. Leadership is very transparent about decision making and planning. Everybody that you work with is super friendly and very mission-driven.

    Cons

    Has gone through a few re-orgs and some shuffling, but I hope that once the dust settles, then everything will get back to normal. ZG is experience an interesting shift in product development and direction, so sometimes it feels like I’m a bit late to find out about an update, but that’s just the business of a fast moving tech company. I wish there was a cash bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is huge, so please continue that! I would also recommend continuing to invest in training and L&D in order to train and retain the awesome talent at the company.
