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

    Pros

    This list is long: benefits, office perks, work hours, travel, uncapped income potential, forward-thinking and evolving company, incredible culture, open-door leadership culture, etc.. Working for Zillow has, in no small way, changed my life. My contributions are recognized financially and through corporate recognition, and I take great pride in my work and career trajectory. I have requested multiple 1:1 meetings with...

    Cons

    If you do not have a thick skin and don’t like hard, hard work, this is not for you. I do feel there is room for significant improvement with our sales leaders. I don’t have faith that many sales executive or BC managers have any idea what their teams face on a daily basis, their follow-up and through is lacking, overall support and individual empowerment could use a lot of work, etc.. Fortunately, this has not affected...

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

    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.

    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

    break area has a lot of free food and goodies

    Cons

    Too many druggies work there. I had 5 managers in the time I was there. 3 of them were on cocaine. one was even coked out while on the job. my first trip to Seattle for the annual party was something. someone in my training class told me he was at a party in one of the hotel rooms where he and half the managers were doing cocaine. don't let your daughter come work here.

    Pros

    For the last 4 years I have had the incredible opportunity to be a part of a world class organization that focuses on culture, recruiting/ retaining top talent, work/ life balance and moving fast, thinking big. Since I have started the thing I say to anyone asking about the company is that, this is the only job I have ever had that you will work 7.5/ 7 hours out of an 8 hour work day... and they'll pay you well for it....

    Cons

    Mid management politics suck at every company this size. The good thing is most of the managers have been here as reps prior to being a manager so they get the Zillow culture and live by it, outside management hired into the culture tend to not buy into so much, so it can be difficult as a seasoned rep here to deal with the politics that usually comes from management hired from outside the family. Keep your head down...

    Advice to Management

    Outside management doesn't get our culture, hire more and train more from within which helps bolster our culture which all of our reps love to embrace. The breakdown is in mid management that hasn't bought into how to manage and retain top talent in this culture. Mostly it seems they just want to churn and burn reps like most other sales companies do. I hope we can avoid this.

    Pros

    Zillow Group is an absolutely incredible company to work for! The company culture is immersive and they put a heavy focus on employee satisfaction. Some of the perks are great vacation and sick time, stock options, company events, monthly happy hours, annual ZG week in Seattle and the list goes on... Zillow also makes it easy for employees at any level to communicate with their managers and executive- level employees....

    Cons

    Zillow is still growing at a rapid rate so there are times within the sales org where processes and compensation feel like they are not as dialed in as they should be. Things can be more streamlined and efficient to reduce stress on sales associates and their client base.

    Pros

    Fast paced company always trying to be the first through the window when an opportunity presents itself. Great perks, fresh fruit brought in 2x/week from pike place market, free coffee, snacks and catered lunches a couple times/week. AWESOME people! From the CEO on down to my sales team.

    Cons

    It's a grueling job. 100+ phone calls/day makes it easy to get burned out.
