Great company so far

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) La Jolla, CA

ProsGreat benefits.
Free lunch.
Laid back. Great work-life balance.
Friendly people.

ConsCommute - had I known that I had a two hour round trip commute, I would not have taken the job.
Lots of legacy code.
Legacy hardware - I was given a four year old laptop - I'm a Java/J2EE engineer. My personal $650 laptop is like 8 times faster.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    QA Engineer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Shopzilla


    Pros: *Learn the latest industry trends for QA *Learn many new QA… Cons: *Industry trends implemented are not proven technologies *Each team does non-standard QA practices (makes the ramp up time for transitioning from team to team very high) *High… Advice to Senior Management: Please standardize the QA across teams so there is one unified way of performing QA. QA productivity would be higher if you separated QA… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
