    Bureaucratic, but trying to remain within startup culture.

    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

    Amazing atmosphere of innovation and growth. Working at Zillow really seems to get better with time. The transparent leadership really drips down to all levels of management. I feel like Zillow rewards independent, forward-thinking employees. It's all about the big picture here.

    Cons

    None really come to mind. Leadership should continue innovating and exploring. Only con that comes to mind is the lack of 401K matching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees who have stayed loyal to Zillow by allowing growth and continuing to promote from within. Keep up the transparency. Love it.
