    I worked at Zillow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Unlimited snacks and drinks -Good health benefits -Nice offices -Catered lunches on occasion -Lit if you work anywhere but PA Sales

    Cons

    Where to begin... -Management is 90% male. The women who are managers are extremely uptight due to having to compete with men. -Yearly merit is a joke and borderline insulting...I out performed peers and got a lower raise than they did. It all comes down to favoritism and possibly gender. -Rules are extremely bendable if you’re a favorite. If your manager doesn’t have a particular like or dislike for you, you might...

    Advice to Management

    Cons continued because there’s a character limit... -Wanting to move positions laterally? You’re probably not good enough even though, according to paper, you’re a solid candidate. They don’t have the same standards company wide. For example; Irvine: moving from SE to BC can be done at any time apparently (several employees who missed quota and didn’t work the SE position for a year were moved to BC). Lately you have...

    I’m disappointed to hear how unhappy you were at Zillow Group. As the leader of the Premier Agent business (and also a woman) the issues you raise are of great importance to the company, but also to me personally. As you know, one of our Core Values is Include & Empower. It is ...

    I worked at Zillow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Benefits and perks were second to none - Travel regularly - ZG Week

    Cons

    -The majority of teammates did not understand how comp worked or how much $ they were going to make in a given quarter. In the time I worked there, the comp structure changed once per quarter - Little career growth opportunity - Unrealistic quotas set by individuals with very little to no experience setting a quota or participating in an IC sales role

    Advice to Management

    Hire an outside consulting company with experience in Sales enablement /quota planning

    Pros

    Zillow hires the absolute brightest people on the planet. You will be surrounded by these people day and in and day out, challenging you, helping you grow and making you a better professional and person. I'm incredibly happy to have had the opportunity to work among such an exceptional group of people. Due to the highly selective nature of who they hire, the culture is by far one of the best in the world. It's not...

    Cons

    The only con that I personally encountered was the difficulty to fall into a solidified team who is seeking a new leader. The opportunities were there, but the idea of bringing an outsider into a solidified team who needed new ideas and change, was scary. Past experience aside, It'd be great to constantly push to innovate, build and bring new blood in to an already established team. This will ensure innovation always...

    Advice to Management

    Continue seeking out the best candidates for leadership positions that don't always have every box checked off. The best leaders may not always be the most qualified compared to their peers on paper. But, reviewing their history across their entire performance history at ZG, alongside numerous internal referrals should help in giving the thumbs up to shake things up.
