I have been working at Zillow full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Incredibly smart, dedicated and passionate people. Amazing office space. A "start up culture" in a publicly traded company -- not easy to find. Work hard, play hard!

Cons

None. Really. Management expects big things, but gives you the tools, experience and people to pull that off. Big expectations is a good thing!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work, keep listening to your employees. Keep being visionary.

    Pros

    Zillow has good benefits, inexpensive to include each member of the family. Snacks and drinks provided for you, as well.

    Cons

    The company and culture was presented as a great place to work , with the opportunity to make good money. The truth is it's a glorified call center/telemarketing job. Days are always 10-12 hours, just to hit your minimum requirements. 150 phone calls; encoragement to come in early, stay late and eat lunch at your desk to continue working. The pay will never equal the amount of work you put in. 170% of quota will have you under 100k.
    It's very stressful and extremely unprofessional. Very noisy while on the phone. I have been told by customers that it sounds like a circus. And the turnover is outrageous!! Every other week, more empty seats for those who have been fired or simply quit.
    I would NOT recommend this position to anyone!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on professionalism. Don't hire experienced sales professiinals. More truthful during the interview. Better pay, 8 hour work days. No more favoritism. .

    Pros

    Great web site, cool office space, free energy drinks and snacks. Co-workers are smart and all work hard. Free lunch on Fridays, catered in.

    Cons

    Management is narcissism on steroids - they made up the kool aid and drank it and shove it down everyone elses throat. The hype is all day long, lots of stupid pep rally type meetings. 10 hr days plus and encouraged, public scoffing at under achievers, You sit next to people who haven't sold anything all day yet their numbers say differently. If you can keep up hype you have a chance to do well, if you even look tired or disheartened, you are on your way out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and give out deals to everyone, not just your favorites. Don't hire grown ups. Its sad to see seasoned salesmen and women have to put up with your antics and eventually let go - 80 percent turnover isn't successful management.
