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

    Pros

    Pretty good perks all around, such as a great office spaces and food. Work is stable and secure, not a lot of change, so it's easy to get comfortable. They generally seem to care about their employees (investors first though). The mantra is to further the experiences of home owners, buyers, and renters, which is a noble cause.

    Cons

    Definitely corporate. From a full service IT team to full service HR team, it's much harder to get things done with you require manager approval on any little thing. Additionally, the upper management does not seem to have a good idea on the activities of smaller teams. They instill odd raises and promotion structures without the advice of managers, so some people are left in the dust. There are also strange hiring practices, when a team needs new employees, It is clear that certain teams are favored (as they are the ones who are able to hire constantly with little approval process).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep better track of what all your teams are doing, what they do, and why they are valuable. Aka, don't take anyone for granted and listen to the requests with openness rather than initial disapproval.

    Pros

    Great product, Excellent Executive level management and product development team.

    Cons

    Hiring people who should not be in sales due to needing to grow faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire only the best talent and don't promote Sales people to Managers or Team leads if they were not top producers. Too many people promoted that didn't understand the sales cycle and know what needs to be done in order to consistently hit their numbers.

    Thank you for your review.
    I'm proud of the fact that every single sales manager (around 20 now) were former salespeople. We have never hired a sales manager from outside of Zillow. It's very
