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

    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!

    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!

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

    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.

    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

    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!

    Pros

    Trulia is a great place to come to everyday. Not only does Management really invest in all the employees, the employees are shown how much they are valued by receiving stellar salaries, benefits and equity in the company. Engineering is an awesome team and we are highly valued here!

    Cons

    I have not experience any cons to mention as of yet. It is a positive place with positive people! Engineering is a collaborative environment where we can learn and work with cutting edge technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and continue to inspire the employees!

    Pros

    Great group of people along with a fun environment! Room to grow as long as your willing to work hard. Amazing benefits and good pay as long as your willing to put in the hours. Trulia does a great job training new hires to have a full understanding of their products. They also do a great job with giving new hires time to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    With any sales job it can wear on you over time but you receive plenty of vaca time to re-generate...
