    Pros

    Strong executive team helped turn the company around from 2010 until the Trulia acquisition. Sales was collegial while aggressive. Good benefits and the HR team really cared about every employee.

    Cons

    The addition of an enterprise model made for a difficult product roadmap. The company was torn between being a SaaS software provider and a custom development shop for the bigger customers. Retail customers suffered as a result. The Trulia acquisition was good for the teams but the cultural differences between the two companies were never addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Acquiring companies should avoid an "our way or the highway" mentality and search for opportunities to leverage assets and resources. There was a reason you acquired the company.

    I worked at Market Leader full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Market Leader gave me a great opportunity to learn software sales and marketing sales techniques. It was a younger sales floor with a lot of energy.

    Cons

    Not a lot of time to take vacations. Not a lot of room for growth within the sales organization and company. Having a young sales floor was fun, but at times it took away from actually doing our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and try to understand what it is like for them.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to start my sales career here. Learned how to sell to Realtors. Good supportive management with excellent training programs. The product worked for Realtors

    Cons

    The location was out of the way for me. The benefits could have been better. Other than those two there weren't many cons to the position.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within. Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Market Leader full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful office with stunning views. Very good pay and decent benefits. Food trucks park right across the street. Easy access to nearby restaurants.

    Cons

    Not allowed to do your best work due to politics, personal agendas and conflicting priorities. The company has been in flux after being purchased by Trulia. Now Zillow is purchasing Trulia... Going to work here at this time (Now called the Trulia Bellevue Center) is very risky due to the transition. Keep in mind what typically happens after a company acquires another company - merging companies into one, eliminating "overlap" and upper management power struggles.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your middle management employees and remove those who aren't competent or worse (destructive, negative, self serving, dishonest). Promote ethical behavior and treating others with respect and consideration.
