Thank you for this review. I try to do frequent company meetings, and lots of small group meetings, in order to keep communication very open between execs and the entire company. You're right that ... More

    I have been working at Zillow full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Zillow full-time (Less than a year)

    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 Management

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