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

    Pros

    Free lunch on Fridays, great benefits, gym reimbursement, free snacks.

    Cons

    I stayed around 6 months. At first, everything was great; they do the old smoke and mirrors trick- free lunch! gym reimbursement! tons of $$ if you hit quota! But the reality is: everyone is extremely stressed about hitting quota and it creates a negative office environment. The well is very poisoned here. I felt like after a month of training and traveling to Seattle, the smoke screen was gone and I realized I had made...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the churn and burn method. Restructure the sales plan (like the 3 strikes you're out method) so you can create happier employees and therefore a better work environment.

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

    Pros

    You can't deny that Zillow has pretty great benefits. The best health and vision insurance I've had to date. An office with amazing views of the Puget Sound and plentiful rotating snacks.

    Cons

    I can't speak for other roles or departments in the company, but if you enjoy being micromanaged and don't mind making 100+ dials a day to people who are sick of being called by Zillow then you can make some decent money. Although you'll most likely end up getting a percentage taken out of your future commission check when clients don't fulfill their contract and cancel because they're unhappy with the product.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great CEO great workspace with more snacks and array of beverages than you could ever imagine. View from any floor is amazing.

    Cons

    It's really disappointing because i have a lot of friends that aren't in sales that work for Zillow and they can't stop talking about how much they love it. Zillows core values and direction and culture is absolutely amazing UNLESS you are on the sales floor. It is a shark eat shark environment where you can't trust anybody. Everyone is always trying to figure out ways to snake your deals, which results in a lot of...

    Advice to Management

    Fix the issue of people snaking other people deals and make it a fair playing field. "Salesforce Rules" are INSANE. The fact that if you miss a follow up on someone you have been working with for months and if they accidentally falls out of your name that another SE who literally did nothing for the sale gets to close it and get 100% credit. Also, stop preaching about how "transparent" you are because it's very evident...

    Pros

    -Great Benefits -Awesome Culture -Lots of yearly parties and free food -Feel valued as an employee

    Cons

    -It's a grind and emotionally taxing, you have to have thick skin and not get in your head.

    Advice to Management

    The questions on the recruiting call didn't feel personal and the recruiter was clearly reading a script. For first impression I think this should be more polished and sincere.

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great coworkers and camaraderie amongst teams. The CEO is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Very disappointing - The day-to-day does NOT match the job description. They will try to sell you on the Enterprise team being a "senior level" position but they treat you like a very junior, entry level rep. Minus the training and support. I definitely did not trust my manager or director, I know they wouldn't have my back if it came down to it. Very greedy and off-putting. They only like you when you product numbers....

    Advice to Management

    I don't think there is much point to providing advice as they don't truly welcome it anyways. I'd start by building more trust and communication with the team. I'd also suggest looking at other thriving teams within the company and assess their leadership style vs team performance and maybe try implementing the same principles. I'd also highly recommend sending the manager and director to leadership workshops to learn...

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

    Pros

    They have great benefits plan. They also have free food and happy hours.

    Cons

    There is major favoritism within the Denver and Seattle offices. They have less than 2% of African Americans in leadership. The Agent Care and Client Engagement departments are ran like a high school. If you are different in anyway, your chances of promotion are zero. Management is not helpful or knowledgeable. They work as a team to get rid of people they do not like.

    Advice to Management

    I would change the management make up. The old management has caused a toxic environment.
