    Trulia cares far more about its Shareholders than its Employees and its Customers/ Agents - IMPACT values are a joke!

    Pros

    The benefits were outstanding and the hours were great - but it's simply a call center disguised as an office.

    Cons

    Everything else. Upper and mid-level management are micro-managers who are clueless about selling the product and motivating their teams. The product is a joke....Agents beware: 100% of a market means nothing. Waitlists are misleading and there's probably a good reason why your zip opened up - someone else let go of it because it did not work for them! Quotas are unrealistic and change regularly. Rarely are they shared until the month has already started. This company was a pleasure to work for at first. Then greed set it and the entire culture changed. The only people / employees who are making money are the shareholders, managers and salaried employees. If you are considering a sales position at Trulia, you would be better off applying at McDonald's because that's about how much you will make with your hourly wage and NO commission paid!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to your roots and stop lying to your employees and your customers. This was a great company before it went public and the the Strategics Manager was brought in. This man will look you in the eye and tell you how great you are. He will wax poetic about how his employees' families are what keep him up at night worrying.
    What keeps him up at night is the task of sharpening all of the knives he drives into his subordinates' backs.

    Pros

    The departments are great. Professional, creative talented, and hard working. The only department that does not meet up to this is sales/acquisitions

    Cons

    Transparency is not something the leadership team is used to on the sales floor. If you are applying for a job in acquisitions ask a lot of questions. I mean a lot of questions. Ask questions like what are the realistic salary expectations and how is bonus structure set up. Ask questions like how often does it change? They change a lot. What happens if you do not meet expectations and how often does that change? Then ask about the management staff. Some of them act like used car salesmen, most of them are helicopter managers and buzz over you, another one is a jittery spaz, aka a lot of drugs but HR seems to look the other way, constantly micromanaging you through 6AM texts to make sure we get to work. All of the managers seem to tolerate people being late, hung over, and people being entitled. The management team will also look the other way if you are doing something shady but you are making sales. If you have a trip planned in your 6 months there is no such thing as quota relief and management makes you feel guilty about taking any time off including sick days because we have an obligation to the stockholders If there is a company event the sales management team discourages you from going even if you are doing well. Training is a joke. Learn everything you can on your own and not from those around you. I have been there for almost a year and the thing that is consistent is the endless amounts of dials, horrible quick sales pitches, and new scripts to guilt agents into buying. You do not learn any new skills other than to close hard and fast. This is a boiler room environment. Take this job if you need money and do not have a degree because if you do it is not valued on the sales floor. Word of advice, just read the script.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your act and let HR get involved. People should not be afraid to go to them because you make promises that things will change. Do not text us in the morning before work. Give us something to learn and the skills for future career opportunities.
