    Pros

    Benefits, People, Commissions, technology, support staff, culture were all awesome!!

    Cons

    HR gave too much leniency to employee's that were under performing, and it lead to putting management and other sales people in a tough situation...work hard and get great commission...don't work hard and get 3-5 months of pay for doing nothing.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers,
    Great atmosphere,
    Free snack and drinks and plenty of random lunches supplied by management

    Cons

    Too much gossip, and behind the scenes talk among co-workers, had a kind of "high school" feel to it.
    Company is great to those that blow out the monthly revenue goals but make the people who are struggling feel like an outcast. Those unfortunate people feel definitely underappreciated and coming to works is no longer a passion

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with your teams and adapt. You can't just throw a number out for each team member to achieve in sales when everyone is different, everyone has a different strategy, and there is no "one-size fits all" approach to sales.

    Pros

    Amazing perks and benefits. In-office perks, like food and workspace are extra awesome. Fun, nice people.

    Cons

    Company lacks a little direction. A little bit all over the place. Engineers, like everywhere else in Silicon Valley, get preferential treatment.

    Advice to Management

    More clearly carve out a niche. Pick a strategy and commit. Choosing a path and sticking with it will pay off in the end, even if there are bumps in the road.

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

    Pros

    I really loved the culture at Trulia and Zillow Group. I started with a summer internship and ended up working as a full-time employee. My team was amazing and so were many other people at the company. The perks were great including the holiday party in Seattle. I really loved how it was dog friendly too. I enjoyed pushing code from day one of my internship to being allowed to work on large features which allowed me to be hired as a full-time employee. It was awesome talking with VPs and the President of the company from time to time. That's pretty unheard of at a lot of large companies. It was definitely difficult for me to leave.

    Cons

    I can't say there were too many. They seem to have a lot of trouble keeping Senior UX Designers around though. Things started feeling more corporate with time but that was natural with the acquisition. Some of the teams also seemed a little bigger than necessary. I didn't leave because I was unhappy with the company. The Bay Area was unfortunately just too expensive for my family and I.

    Advice to Management

    With the rising costs in the Bay Area it will probably become more difficult to hold onto some people. Compensation is pretty good, but make sure that Trulia culture stays alive. I really think that is what makes working at Trulia such a special experience. The no a**hole policy is a keeper!
