    Pros

    Great way to break into a career in sales if that's what you're looking for. They've spent a lot of time developing a solid training class so that you have the ability to sell with confidence once you're on the sales floor. Recruiters tend to hire well a fun group of people, this makes coming to work fun. Lots of perks for high performers. Great overall company culture.

    Cons

    It can feel like a call center at times and it's very competitive. The role itself can be a bit redundant and become dull fast.

    Pros

    great career path, awesome people, wonderful management, and all around great experience

    Cons

    Sometimes lack of oversight. The mass layoffs were unexpected, unfortunate, but it happens.

    Advice to Management

    Let's hope the culture is still in tact as I know there has been a ton of changes. Almost difficult to review this now, but I do want access to the full glassdoor reviews.

    Pros

    Fun people and positive work environment. Very sufficient training and organization of inside sales team.

    Cons

    Little visibility to the inside sales role and lack of opportunities to move within the organization, even when recognized as a top seller.

    Advice to Management

    This is a bit obsolete :)

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

    Pros

    Benefits are the only thing that I would recommend this company for. There is nothing else worth mentioning to anyone.

    Cons

    Their management and sales techniques are a complete joke. Bait and switch sales tactics, a good ol' boys club, rampant drug use in management and sales and customer service reps. Commissions have continued to tank over the past two years. Managers encouraged to write fake reviews to beef up glassdoor rankings to cover up the real reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. There is very little management worth anything now. Get rid of the muscle management that walks around threatening people. Hire real and genuine management that wants to make a difference instead of cruising along with whatever upper management suggests.

    I have been working at Trulia full-time

    Pros

    Food, ping pong, happy hours, cool co-workers, did I already say food? That's just because they dont want reps breaking for lunch

    Cons

    No longer Trulia. Zillow bought Trulia and there were mass layoffs in April 2015. The few remaining top Trulia reps have been fired or quit and are replaced with new ones for lower pay. Zillow is not what I signed up for! Very unhappy with the way this company is headed

    Advice to Management

    Spencer and Greg should not be coaching reps to lie to agents. Should have left Trulia alone because everything here sucks now. Thumbs down. Good reviews are posted by the women in HR department and entry level beginner reps. If you're good at sales this is not the place for you

    Pros

    Decent paychecks and great benefits.

    Cons

    They will lie to you and do anything to get more sales out of you. Even though they have fun things to do if you are not a top seller it is frowned upon to have fun.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employess.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and culture in their office. This is one of the best jobs I have ever had!! They have happy hours, catered lunches, and plenty of fun days through out the year! Not only was I proud of the people I worked with but I made a ton of money here!

    Cons

    Not many cons at all. Just be ready for change as they are always growing and evolving their business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being the awesome Trulians you are and continue the great culture !

    I worked at Trulia full-time

    Pros

    None... I'd recommend checking out the review titled "Working Hard to Offer The Worst Employee Experience in America."

    Said review really articulates why Trulia is such an awful company to work for.

    Cons

    Everything! I had such a bad experience working there I had to circle back after over 2 years of being gone... Just stay away, I promise you'll regret taking a job there.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure about the new Zillow management... Best of luck though as I know that polishing a turd is never any easy task.
