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

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, excellent tools, free snacks and coffee, good healthcare and stock options. Corp app infrastructure is solid. People are usually helpful and supportive when you have questions even across orgs.

    Cons

    Zillow 2.0 is driving people far too hard. There is a tangible change at the company toward tighter budgets, which has resulted in significantly more workload per person without wanting the spend on appropriate staffing levels. (While the equity and belonging team is doing great) I also feel more expendable as Zillow 2.0 moves forward. Despite transparency being a core value, management in my org makes major... personnel decisions without opening positions to the whole org, causing employees at other sites to be left behind and the whole process to become very political and unfair. Transparency is only valued on a technical level, not a people level in my org. Politics have frequently influenced decisions about major systems changes, and when to spend budget even when the equipment is badly needed.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the long term and don't let short term targets change major decisions. Refocus on the core values. Improve transparency in promotion opportunities across the org. Be aware of the stress of Zillow 2.0 and how it is affecting existing staff.
