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

    Pros

    This is a great company that takes care of its employees. They encourage you to work your way up within the organization, whether that is within your team or not. The rentals division specifically is a fast growing section of Zillow Group, and still has a "start up" feel within a larger company. The product sells itself at times, and as a sales rep you function very independently. Your success is largely determined by...

    Cons

    The "start up" feel is not for everyone, and if you do not like constant change this is not a role for you. Travel can be extensive at times, but it is necessary and you are largely in control of when/where you travel which helps prevent burning out.

    Advice to Management

    Zillow Group has a great leadership team within the rentals organization. They are constantly looking for areas of improvement, and acting on these areas of improvement is something that they follow up on which is great. However communication about these changes down the totem pole could be improved at times.

    Pros

    Best thing about Zillow, bar none, are the people. These are people who will be your lifelong friends and you will genuinely excited to see day in and day out. Training is exceptional. If you want to learn how to sell, Zillow offers some of the best training top to bottom. From learning how prospect, qualify, and close, you will get a great crash course on how to truly sell. Best product on the market as well. Yes...

    Cons

    The culture of the Orange County office specifically has changed a lot in the last year. One of the core values is Orange County is a destination sales career. This is getting less true by the week. The Orange County office specifically is beginning to see an exodus of talent and employees who have worked with the company for a substantial amount of time. This isn’t a coincidence and over the past 6 months it’s gotten...

    Advice to Management

    Management is fantastic and the people are better, but there have been too many aggressive changes since January. When you don’t offer loyalty to some of your most experienced sales executives (who have made the company a lot of money) you will continue to see people leaving this role for greener pastures. This company started off as a place I wanted to start my career with and quickly turned into a job. I’m not sure...

    Pros

    It’s beyond inspiring to see senior leadership in the trenches with front-line sales on a regular basis! After nearly a decade at a “slow, dumb” corporation, my role at Zillow has allowed me to realize the joy of exceeding the high expectations that I’ve always held for myself as a sales professional. Along with the numerous career milestones achieved, my wife and I welcomed our second son to this beautiful world...

    Not a single negative experience in my first year of employment!

    Advice to Management

    Continue putting the greater vision of the organization at the forefront of the company's endeavors. It has obviously worked! With a people first policy outlined with full transparency and a "team sport" mindset, I believe we at Zillow are just beginning to realize the potential of such a beautiful organization.

I'm writing this review because I've worked in the Seattle sales office for a while now and shocked to read all the comments about have to work over 40 hours a week in order to make quota.

      I’ve noticed the training classes are all different on the end procedure. I saw most newer classes go to “training bay” right after our 2 weeks course. My class didn’t get that consistent help right off the bat so it took me a little longer to get the hang of the systems being newer into sales. I came in at the end of the year at a time where a lot of transitions where happening because of growth (good problem). When...

      I'm new. Accepting this job was the best decision I ever made. It's already been life-changing. Imagine what it feels like to get 15 pats on the back and "attaboys" for simply closing your first sale, and then to get a barrage of emails congratulating you, from people you don't even know yet. All from a group of people who are legitimatly stoked for your success. THAT is what it feels like to work on the Sales team here....
