I worked at Zillow full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours; good immediate coworkers; nice office amenities and snacks

Cons

Management still thinks the company is a start-up even though it's a public company. Management said that they will always pay below the market value range of a position. So if you're happy with $35k to $40k on average, this is your place. If you expect $60k, good luck. Also, don't expect people to be professional here. The coworkers (mainly the sales team and management) take everything personally and do not conduct themselves in a professional manner. If you're a factual person, this is not the place for you. The company functions very business backwards (i.e. develop the website but don't consider or work on how it'll actually impact day-to-day work). Also, for a small company, communication is very poor between small teams (at most 10 people) nonetheless between departments. If you're fresh out of college, this is a place to start, but don't plan on developing a career here.

Advice to Management

Pay people what they're deserved. Don't be locked into review cycles. If someone is doing an amazing job, do something to reward and retain the talent.

    Pros

    Fun work evnvironment, Solid business Results. Competent Managment, career opportunities, growth, technical challenges to keep engineers happy, good company culture. Company expanding organically and through acquisitions create new opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be a hectic pace, but on the whole balanced. There could be more opportunities for teams to present the work they are doing to the whole company. On the flip side, I like the company wide meetings. Good sharing of what is going on and interesting guest speakers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the small company culture and empower your teams to do great work. They will continue to impress you with their work and results.

    Pros

    You can make a name for yourself in a short period of time. With strong growth, come opportunities and you are given every chance to seize those opportunities.

    The culture has not changed since going public - It remains a meritocracy and there's no tolerance for BS politics.

    Cons

    wonder if we overpaid for Rent Juice

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire motivated/driven people - Keep the high hiring standards as we grow.
