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

    Pros

    Work parties, benefits, casual dress and free food

    Cons

    Depending on the office that you are in there is either a lot of room for growth or none. Seattle has a lot...Dallas very little to none at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Know more about the real estate industry, BE TRANSPARENT "Turn on the Lights"

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

    Pros

    Good culture, Team environment with alot of smart people around you,

    Cons

    Poor middle management and hiring practices

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the people who got absorbed in the Trulia acquisition. Zillow made a huge mistake buying Trulia. It changed the culture for the worse. They brought on dead weight of an inferior company with inferior employees. Trulia had much lower hiring standards than Zillow. Everyone at our office that got stuck with an ex-Trulia manager was unhappy and left soon after. I was there happily for 4 years, had 3 managers I loved. I left a few months after I was assigned to a Trulia manager when it was made clear they would be my manager long term. The C-level execs were all great from my experience. They also stopped promoting from within which was always a core value they boasted about for so long. You have to work at the Seattle office if you want long term growth opportunities. If you are not willing to move to Seattle there is only so far you can go in Irvine.
