    I have been working at Zillow full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A lot of companies give lip service when it comes to addressing inequities around sexuality, gender, and diversity in the workplace. Because we were so driven product wise for years it felt like maybe that is all Zillow will be; lip service. Last few years though I am inspired and impressed by the excellent work from C level down in advocating for inclusivity, equity and belonging for everyone. It is not easy work...

    Cons

    Some in middle management, especially in sales and sales support, have not been as committed as some of our executives and individual contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep on keeping on and be willing to work through the challenges that arise in addressing Equity, Belonging and Inclusivity.

    Pros

    Great work environment. You can find some really cool & down to earth people there.

    Cons

    So many product issues to the point where employees are blamed because for poor satisfaction. So many department& role changes.

    Advice to Management

    Dont congratulate an employee for great performance one week, and then fire them the next week for poor performance just because you dont like them.

    Pros

    Great people and platform. Not as intense as Amazon

    Cons

    Zillow has a start up feel but are too big to be one so things are moving slower then they were 4 years ago. Zillow is an advertising company and is learning on how to build tech products. Not the best content platform

    Pros

    Great benefits, team work is fundamental, and fast moving company where there is room for growth.

    Cons

    Sometimes your ideas can be caught up in bureaucracy, or red tape ... and by the time someone takes a serious look the program has already been changed.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers, the benefits, the executive team, work/life balance- all great.

    Cons

    My job was underpaid in comparison to similar jobs at other companies in the area. The organization of my team was a mess, the director ignored feedback from employees, and there was no growth opportunity. The company itself is very social- loud music, beers, constant parties- which can be fun, but it's over the top and it would be great if they would take some of the money spent on parties and swag and pay employees...

    Pros

    Incredibly transparent company. Empowers it's employees to do their best work. I've seen endless examples of our leadership soliciting feedback from the company, and then take action on areas of opportunity. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    Nothing major to share here.

    I have been working at Zillow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits from Zillow as the mother company are great. Benefits, maternal leave, free snacks, paid lunches.

    Cons

    The leadership in Lincoln is horrible. There is a large difference between the Seattle Zillow culture and Lincoln office culture. There are a few in roles who do not have the proper education/experience. I along with others have been doing Account Management work for over a year with no promotion (After being told this would happen.) When the office worries more about the beer in the Keg dispenser than the customers,...

    Advice to Management

    Have an internal position with someone from outside of Lincoln to oversee certain areas. The hiring process should be more competitive. We claim that 1% of applicants get the job but in Lincoln its not necessarily the best talent which gets the job. We also need an internal HR representative as there are a lot of unprofessional things that could be nipped with an HR presence.

    I have been working at Zillow

    Pros

    Fun work environment, great benefits, and a great place to grow. Everyone listens to ideas no matter what level of employee they come from. I've worked at some good companies, and also some bad, and Zillow is by far the best.

    Cons

    There is nothing that I can think of to be honest in my department. Since it is growing fast, Zillow is losing some of the convenience of a smaller company, but this is also a really good thing.

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

    Pros

    Easy job, fun coworkers (on your direct team)

    Cons

    Upper-management doesn't want lower-level employees to succeed, low pay, sexual-harassment on the sales floor

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Hire people with less ambitions if you don't want to support them professionally.
