    I worked at Zillow full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Executive leadership has proven results with past companies, they are now building on their passion and have a laser focus with willingness to pivot at a moments notice.

    Cons

    Culture. First, as with all companies the culture is dictated by the group you work with and the leadership guiding it. The production IT organization was always broken and never got the leadership and support it needed to grow into a first class organization like most other departments. Second, Zillow's focus on belonging as an employee has jumped the shark, if you want to work at a company that is trying to be...

    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.

    The people there are amazing to work with. Always open to helping out

    Cons

    On the technology front, there a good amount of legacy software that make development more slow. There is a good focus on improving this, but the company is not there yet.

    I have been working at Zillow full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fantastic pay, fantastic benefits, fantastic opportunity for professional growth. I've been here 5 years and it's the happiest I've been at a job in my life. I have had the opportunity to grow in several roles and participate in many pilots (pilots are an excellent opportunity to live the core value #MoveFastThinkBig and really push yourself to do something new and amazing!). I've been mentored by some brilliant people,...

    Cons

    I sound biased, but there really aren't any. It's not very fancy, so if your ego requires an office, the semi-casual open floor plan with no offices probably won't be your thing. But I love it.

    Keep doing things right!

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

    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.

    I have been working at Zillow full-time for more than 3 years

    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

    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 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing location, benefits, snacks, social events, etc. This is now the expectation of tech companies in Seattle, and they keep up. More importantly, a chance to be part of the most influential company within an industry is a great opportunity. Growth, multiple departments as opportunity for change and learning, future career-benefiting relationships. These and the friends you make are what keep you there at a certain...

    Cons

    The problem is with the man in charge of the sales organization. He does not align with the values of the company. He is dishonest. That's actually the nicest and most professional way that I can say it. While I was there, and since I left, I have watched him destroy the careers of, push out, and ridicule some of the most talented salespeople and sales leaders that I've worked with. I had many 1 on 1 conversations...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your Chief Business Officer, or whatever his title is now. The CEO is amazing, but this person is making the company look bad. Your reputation within the sales community in Seattle just keeps getting worse. You'll stop attracting or retaining talent if you don't look within your sales org and fix things.

    - Clarity on evaluation criteria - More support needed in first two weeks

    Advice to Management

    It would be better for everyone if there was a clear offer process in the end of the internship. This way you would be able to have more returning talent that you already invested in interviewing and training over the summer.
