    I have been working at Zillow full-time

    Pros

    Work/life balance, uncapped income potential, amazing office environment, progressive, forward-thinking company, top-notch benefits, etc.!

    Cons

    Middle management turnover can be frustrating, and leadership on the sub-regional level needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, and they will perform. Learn what your front-lines face on a daily basis before setting goals and expectations.

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

    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

    lots of snacks and drinks

    Cons

    Management does not care about employees, only climbing the ladder. Having opinions or ideas outside of management is considered "negativity" and you will be blacklisted for outside thinking . Despite the ping pong tables it is VERY corporate. You are not valued. "Turn on the lights" is a core value yet the deceive their employees and their clients. Management is so drunk on the Zillow Kool Aid, they think they can...

    Advice to Management

    Put your people before your self. Don't shoot down ideas because you are too scared to take them to a director. Give credit, don't take it all. Understand that culture has NOTHING to do with loud music and ping pong, it's about how you take care of your people.

    Pros

    The work environment/culture is amazing. People are positive and have fun at work, while working hard. Management expects a lot out their teams. For those that are willing to work hard, have a great team mentality and attitude, and quickly adapt to change there is massive opportunity for financial earnings and career growth. I could not be happier with my role here. I leave work every day and week feeling good about...

    Cons

    Communication from management can sometimes lack clarity. Some of this has to do with just how quick things move and evolve here. Continue to focus on delivering new updates, training, etc. in digestible formats.

    Advice to Management

    The keys to what makes this office tick is the people/environment/culture/vibe. Continue hiring the right positive and hungry people to this team!

    Pros

    Working at Zillow is awesome. It is very easy to get involved, the culture is the best I've ever seen. It's actually fun coming to work. There's no "Corporate America" feeling whatsoever. Especially in OC, that tech/media company feel is hard to find. You get paid very well for the work you do, the people are awesome, you get snacks, free lunches, contests, COLD BREW COFFEE ON TAP!!! The CEO sit in the same type of desk...

    There are no cons. The company is completely transparent and all the leaders are awesome. There's nobody that you can ask questions too.

    Thank you for the great review! The Irvine office is a great office, with a really cool vibe. It is full of happy, positive people (so our other offices, of course -- but there is something special about that Southern California vibe!). I enjoy spending time there.

    Pros

    Great company as a whole. Really can't complain from a big picture. The CEO is remarkable, the vision is amazing, and the benefits are incredible.

    Cons

    The Denver office is really only a sales center. Don't get me wrong, you can make a great living, but career trajectory is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    I have the same things to say that have already been said. It's truly a great company, just not the place for someone who values their job beyond a paycheck.

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

    Pros

    For 46 months straight, I kept meeting great people with strong talents. Building relationships with Agents from a cold call on to years of consulting and Truly helping the agents grow their business.

    Cons

    Managers that have been there for years are lazy and if you report this to HR you get let go. Seen it happened and when I couldn't keep quite I too was let go.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder. The sales reps have Built Zillow by building relationships with Agents. Do the same. My manager didn't even give me a annual review leading to no raise and HR didn't fix this.. they let me go.
