Pros

There are no pros to working at Trulia

Cons

Unrealistic quota and lousy pay with extreme micromanagement. All of the positive reviews are false. They are either written by management or human resources.
Quotas keep on going up with payouts getting lower.
During training the company will have someone from each "business line" talk to the trainees about what it's like to be a "Trulian". People will say things like "I'm the only one from Class 8 that's left and I'm in priority accounts and it's great." That's because nobody sticks with this garbage job with this garbage company that pays its people garbage. The base is below any other sales job's base and commission payouts are abismal.
The lead source is an absolute joke. Agents don't want Trulia, don't need Trulia, and don't use Trulia.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's no point in providing advice to management because they won't listen.

    Pros

    Working in the engineering department is a pleasure. No shortage of interesting projects and an agile development environment with weekly releases keeps everything interesting. The management hierarchy doesn't feel oppressive, and coworkers are both nice and smart. Flexible hours depending on team, frequent outings, lunches, and other ways of relaxing.

    Cons

    As an engineer, it takes time to figure out the nuances of the realty world, and even then there are people specifically hired to help teams understand.

    Pros

    If you like to work at a bad company with low pay that asks its employees to put up good reviews on Glassdoor, then Trulia is the place for you.

    Cons

    There are a lot of challenges in working at Trulia. The pay is low, management micromanages, and the customer base does not like the product that Trulia sells.
    The company hires about thirty new sales people every month because people quit or get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's pretty obvious that stretch goals are set for the sales floor so the company can hit its revenue goals without having to pay commissions. Instead of paying people with "culture" try paying them with money.
