    I have been working at Trulia full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I started in Customer Care at Market Leader. From the beginning I made clear I wasn't going to stay in that department. Within 5 months I won a position in the Training department, which happens to be my dream job. The whole experience was so positive. My Customer Care supervisor was so supportive of my growth and determination to move elsewhere. Easily the best experience I've ever had working for an employer.

    Cons

    It can be hard to know what opportunities are available, as there isn't always clear communication. It can also be hard to find out what I can do to help support other departments or who to talk to to find out what sort of support those departments might need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent about how each department can benefit and be benefited by each other. Be clear about what is happening in the company, even if it might be a negative. More information is better than less.

    Pros

    The people at Trulia are genuine, hard working, good work life balance, and smart. It's a great group of people.

    Cons

    It's hard to think of one. One con is that as the company grows we get to know less of the people in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, providing opportunities for employees to learn and grow and contribute to our success.

    I have been working at Trulia

    Pros

    It was once a great place to work. Supportive sales managers, fun start up benefits, exciting and positive environment. I've learned a lot by being here but I was also new to sales. We're in a new building now that's conveniently located. Most of the good reviews are either in Denver or from other departments. Lots of booze-filled events, if you're into that.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Managers will pace back and forth staring at your computer, talk in your ear while you're on a sales call and send text messages at 6:00 a.m. with irrelevant information.

    Quotas fluctuate and go up constantly but pay outs are the same. One of the lowest salaries in SF for a comparable position elsewhere.

    Managers are constantly playing favoritism and cliques are a result of it. If you're new, half of the sales floor won't even acknowledge that you exist. It makes for an uncomfortable environment.

    Policies change based on whether the managers like you or if you're considered someone they party with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professionalism and transparency. Not only are we expected to sell through lying to most of the real estate agents but we're being manipulated into believing that it's okay. Managers need to stop playing favoritism and also fire the people that are contributing to a hostile work environment. Constantly raising our quotas will make us desperate to make sales and question our own integrity.

    Pros

    Strong base pay. Great atmosphere. Great training. FUN to come to work everyday. Also a ton of opportunity to make money and advance. I have worked at a lot of different sales jobs, and this by far beats them all. If you are considering a job at Trulia.....TAKE IT!

    Cons

    Tough leads to work during training. Be ready to sell!

    Exceptional training and support, great company culture, strong income potential (top sales reps earning 200k), and the free snacks are awesome!

    Schedule 7am-4pm not for everyone, but if you are an early riser, its really a great schedule.

    Keep up the good work, you are a top level company, employees are luckier than they realize

    Pros

    Coming from another well-respected tech company the bar that Trulia had to meet was high, but since I have been here I have been impressed by the leadership, culture and fast-paced work environment. I am consistently challenged and feel my responsibility growing. Can't beat the fun times either! Love the happy hours and the pet friendly office :)

    Cons

    So far I haven't seen any!

    Pros

    Great environment! Casual, fun, and energetic. Lots of perks come with being a Trulia employee. 100% paid benefits, lots of PTO, employee stock, and a great work/life balance to name just a few. Lots of growth and career advancement opportunities. Leadership is awesome. They don't rule with an iron fist here. Approachable management who foster suggestions, ideas, and innovation. If you are looking for an environment in line with Google, Zappos, or any other tech/dotcom company, make sure to check these guys out.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced. A few bad reviews from angry sales people who haven't cut it. I almost didn't take the job here based on some negative reviews. Don't buy into these angry reviews. Trulia offers so many opportunities for success and employee satisfaction. It's only fair that they expect a lot from their employees. If you are in sales, you have a 5 month ramp up time and plenty of tools and resources to be successful. It's sales, so if you are not producing, then there isn't a place here for you. No different than any other sales position. There is a reason Trulia has been voted one of the best places to work for the last 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. For the people who work hard and are loyal, we appreciate all that you do for us. Thank you for being open to suggestions, for being mentors and coaches, and for making this a fun place to work.
