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

    Pros

    Accountability ("Own It") is a core value Leadership cares about those on the bottom of the totem pole Company respects personal time and is generous with time off and accommodating employee needs.

    Cons

    Can be difficult for construction field employees in other states/markets to connect with the tech culture of the corporate HQ

    Advice to Management

    Strive to integrate more people with construction field experience in areas like administration, coordination and office management into roles within corporate Zillow Group HQ and into leadership roles in other market offices, in order to further mold the culture there to bridge that gap.

    Pros

    Amazing culture/environment, compensation and work life balance. They truly take care for their employees. Opportunity for advancement is there and executive management is on point.

    Cons

    You can get stuck with a territory or book of business that has a high level of churn due to not making quota, so don't expect an easy sale. If your direct manager is not a good fit for you to learn from you might be in a tough spot.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sacrifice employee management and development to press captured revenue.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zillow full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    High salary for the work being done.

    Cons

    Unpaid mandatory lunch Too many dudes in office(subjective) Not enough work to do! Non Apple computers Only 6 remote days per quarter , non negotable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real developers and not copy+paste kind. It is extremely inappropriate to be asked to work on 3 month+ projects in the offseason, tell the CEO to look in the mirror when disciplining his colleagues.
