    Pros

    Super sharp people in a vibrant and schwank environment. New offices in the old Wamu building downtown make for great location and killer views. Working on something that matters.

    Cons

    It's kind of a depresssing real estate environment if you are a homeowner, and looking at my Zestimate only reminds me of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you continue to pay attention to your immensely wise and talented board of directors.

    Hard work in a demanding environment that was disorganized but rolled out innovations regularly.

    I have been working at Zillow

    Pros

    I enjoyed the pace of innovation. New ad products would get rolled out frequently, there was a willingness to experiment, the developers were responsive. Since it was a start up environment, there wasn't a lot of bureaucracy or politics.

    Cons

    Work flow processes were not defined, there was almost never any needed technical documentation, management did little, work priorities were set by squeaky-wheel-ocracy. Lots of senseless fire-drills and working late. Overall lack of organization. Laid off 1/3 of the company when times got rough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aim for some expertise at middle management levels, develop a culture of process capture and documentation, chart your company's organization to improve communication and workflow.
