    Pros

    Great company, heading in the right direction. I have heard they started getting tougher on sales staff but its sales, you have to be willing to put in the work no matter where you are.
    Great perks! They are very generous with their concessions, you will find enough snacks to keep yourself full and entertained.

    Cons

    Sales is a grind, if that is not for you, you may want to consider other options.

    I worked at Zillow full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The sales floor has a killer layout
    Young, fun people
    Contests that can win you cash and prizes
    Relaxed attire
    Good tunes, good snacks, good vibe
    Great product to sell if you are working with the right agent

    Cons

    The work doesnt stop, quota isnt something you hit, obviously the more you sell the more you make but once one month ends the next starts up with no let up. Taking days off is almost looked down upon although they say it isnt. Its a hard place to concentrate if you arent mentally prepared, music constantly playing(which is nice) but if you sit next to the loud guy, you are in purgatory, emails come through every 30 seconds which can really deter you from your concentration and or missing an important email. Comp plan changes quite regularly, there isnt much consistency, but such is a startup company. You are selling to real estate agents which in itself is difficult enough. RE agents are in massive debt and have no patience. Even if you sell properly youre still going to find yourself in a miserable place once the CC declines come in and the agents dont pay out or answer their phones, losing you time and money. Too many sales people, the top 40% would put up better numbers and be in happier environment if the ones who didnt sell as much did not work there. Bigger books of business and more account management on the back end seems like the better solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Award people with time off and stay away from the monthly payment system, with a product as stellar as Premier Agent a one time payment should be the only option in bringing on new clientele. More account management, and look into a customer service department.
