    Too many changes going on

    I have been working at Trulia

    Pros

    Days go by fast, high energy

    Cons

    Call center, not sales, poor base salary, poor commission structure. Quotas go up and up and up but payout always stays the same. After about year 1 you realize you're cheap labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is actually pretty cool!

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Trulia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    free food/drinks, ping pong, nice facilities

    great for entry level people looking for someone to give them a shot on the phones, serious sales professionals stay away

    Cons

    leadership.

    phony culture.

    saturated market, (when interviewing for sales ask them how many real estate agents can actually afford their product...15% of agents can afford $400 or more / month, don't listen to the great opportunity of 1 million + agents, most sell 1 house a year and make less than 30k).

    RE agents very very very unprofessional, this is not b2b, just b2c, very transactional, 100+ calls a day to people who are getting 100+ calls a day, they don't understand business, they don't trust you and they don't want to talk to you. and most of the time you're not helping them, you're just talking them into something that will never work for them. and then they call you and cancel, all the time, no one sticks with their contract.

    But all this will be fixed when the acquisition by Zillow goes through...because Zillow is great:)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none.

    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.

    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

    Company culture. Strong focus on employee and employee development. Strong communication.

    Cons

    Typical trials of a start up culture that is facing increased marketplace scrutiny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Org is a bit too top heavy. A lot of directors, not enough managers and analysts. Stronger product road map with a clear distinct focus/vision. Increased focus on stock price and Revenue/EBITDA getting in the way of true growth.

    Pros

    The friends you make. Pay is good, but only IF you it insane quotas and IF you last.

    Cons

    Constantly seeing those friends being fired. It is hard not knowing if your new best friend will make it through the week. I have now seen 7 of my close friends let go in the last year. Not to mention, they are going to drop us like flies when the Zillow deal goes through. Couldn't care less about our strengths. The second you stop overachieving their expectations you are forgotten, along with your accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What you expect is INSANE! Stop killing people off!
