    I have been working at Zillow full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is the hardest job I have had but it gets easier with time. I went from a so-so sales person to a beast. I have received some of the best training with this job that I will take with me the rest of my life. The best part about this job is the personal growth I have acheived. I initially thought this was something I was not going to be able to do. My manager and trainer have all been instrumental in helping me achieve my goals. Free food, trips to Seattle for the holiday party, amazing people, and fun work environment.

    Cons

    Couldn't be happier with this company keep doing what you do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, this is Seattle, so it's appropriate that you are in "beast mode" (Seahawks reference, sorry I couldn't help myself). I'm really glad that you are having a good experience here. I know that ... More

    I have been working at Zillow full-time

    Pros

    The company has maintained a small company feel despite our rapid growth over the last three years. The people I work with are insightful, creative, and also really supportive and friendly. The work I do is challenging and recognition for great work is abundant. People are passionate about their work and it shows in the meetings and in the presentation of projects. The company is very transparent in its goals and processes, and knowledge sharing is encouraged. There is also a huge emphasis on work life balance, but people also recognize that sometimes those hours need to be put in to hit a deadline. I haven't had an issue with putting in those extra hours because in the long run it helps.

    Cons

    There are some big company politics that have creeped in subtly with the rapid hiring that we've done of people from the big boys in the area like Microsoft, Expedia, and Google, but most of it is squashed when they figure out how Zillow operates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management and executive know how to foster community and encourage growth amongst team members. I never feel like I'm competing with my colleagues. I feel like we are working together towards a greater goal and that is something the management has done a really great job at fostering.
