Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Software Quality Engineer

I have been working at Isilon, A Division of EMC full-time for more than 3 years


Great team, insanely great product, no rank-and-yank type tendencies. The market positioning with the new Dell acquisition makes this a force majeure in the storage field. The technologies... leveraged by the platform are insanely fun to work on, and the teams that build out tools for devs and techs are amazing.


Standard big company problems. The word from on high is disseminated gradually, but fully, by mgmt. The spirit of competition, while never rancorous, is strong. Certain players don't respect... business hours.

Advice to Management

Keep it up.

Current Employee - Senior Business Consultant

I have been working at Zillow full-time for more than a year


This list is long: benefits, office perks, work hours, travel, uncapped income potential, forward-thinking and evolving company, incredible culture, open-door leadership culture, etc.. Working for... Zillow has, in no small way, changed my life. My contributions are recognized financially and through corporate recognition, and I take great pride in my work and career trajectory. I have requested multiple 1:1 meetings with executive-level leadership and always land on their calendars. You absolutely have to be proactive and eager here, but the rewards are the best in the business!


If you do not have a thick skin and don’t like hard, hard work, this is not for you. I do feel there is room for significant improvement with our sales leaders. I don’t have faith that many sales... executive or BC managers have any idea what their teams face on a daily basis, their follow-up and through is lacking, overall support and individual empowerment could use a lot of work, etc.. Fortunately, this has not affected me too severely, as I perform without needing much supervision, but I do see many of my colleagues struggle, unaided by management.

Advice to Management

Implementation of SOPs for escalations just as there are with cases assigned to reps, ongoing training for all leaders, communication among all roll ups,
