Former Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Trulia full-time

Pros

great location, pretty cool people within the org, great perks and bennies, training provided, stocked kitchen, lots of parties with food and booze, start early and get off early...great for happy hour activities.

Cons

cheerleader management style that over manages, have to make a million calls a day to an industry that doesn't care to hear from you, used car sales tactics, always in meetings if not on the phone, call center, titles are BS, no advancement or lateral movement, definitely do not hire within, required to drink the kool-aid, cold calling all day long, phone jockey, cannot leave your seat for more than 5mins or you will be questioned why you were gone, feel cheap and sleazy by the end of your day selling products that literally cancel each other out, if you work with a client you will have the ability to lose your sale if they call in and your not available and the call goes to the inbound team (you have to specifically tell each person your working with to ask for you by name and deny any other help from any other person within the company...lots of deals are stolen due to this and there is no way to work it out). Sales force is just a worthless front for all those other people in the organization that are more important and worth more to the company IE Designers, Network engineers, Web/Mobile based development, VP's, Marketing/Advertising...anyone not in sales basically. You will be treated well in the beginning but by the time your out of training you quickly become just a drone dialing away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sales is the reason your company is actually worth what it is now...there should be a giant improvement on how the salesforce is treated and judged. Instead of housing such a bad reputation as a churn and burn environment with absurd attrition. You look at your salesforce as the integral part of the company and really really help to nurture everyone's talents and skills. Instead of constantly hiring and firing whilst spending money on getting them in then losing them all in the same breath.

    Pros

    It is always a plus to go to work and be around people you actually enjoy! Never a dull moment. They only constant here is Change! Plenty of opportunity as the office grows at an exponential rate!

    Cons

    Change can be challenging. And with a 'Start Up' mentality things are always moving, morphing and growing! That kind of prolonged intensity can be challenging.
