    I have been working at Zillow

    Pros

    Important mission, innovative products, empowering business culture. You need to be ready to dive in and be a self starter, no hand holding here. Decision making is decentralized and everyone can have a voice. Most employees believe in the mission and all have equity. Lots of fun perks - the usual Internet start up stuff + surprisingly strong benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is to much debate, fairly relentless pace. Business side needs to be willing to travel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused.

      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.
