    Pros

    Talented, passionate and committed team, focused on building a big and successful online real estate company. I like pretty much everyone at the company and they are a very talented group, the transparency is really good as we have weekly all company meetings and what's going on and what we should be focused on. Expectations are high and for the most part the work is interesting. The culture is pretty easy going, your typical internet start-up. Generally people are on with the strategy. I think as the economy and real estate Industry recovers this company will be in a very interesting company. Has good backers who seem to have deep pockets and a long term view.

    Cons

    The company is a little under resourced, they are competing with companies with more than double the staff and doing ok, but people are stretched too thin and senior management can often have unrealistic expectations about deadlines. Pay could be better, but fair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Do a little less.
    I think as the economy and real estate Industry recovers this company will be in an interesting place. The management should stay focused on what it does best and keep their heads down and good things will happen. Don't get distracted by the short term and focus on the long term.

    Pros

    The spiffs and competition were a real motivator. People here were amazing and alone kept me around for months. The product proved to work.

    Cons

    The rules, commission structure, and goals constantly changed. One thing one week and the one thing the next. Management was more concerned about new monthly value over the total sales.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time towards the growth of the sales professionals

    Pros

    Awesome work/life balance. They have great perks, benefits, 401K, commuter benefit, dental, vision, etc... Core Senior Management has been in place since inception, but have added some amazing talent (COO, VP of Sales) that have truly accelerated our growth and revenue. They listen to feedback and do their best to change direction or adjust very rapidly. Whole company has clear goals and they really let every employee know what is going on - each week.

    HR and internal support teams really care about making you feel wanted and special.They have gone through a lot of growth in their training and hiring process for Inside Sales. The office has changed a lot in the past year. All I can say is that those people getting hired now and in the last 3 months are way better than the ones brought in previously. The compensation plan has been a steady and really fair plan since March of this year.

    Cons

    There are two divisions. Working in Inside Sales is very different than being an engineer, or mid-upper level management. Finally, the biggest con is that they do not do much for employees who have been here a long time in terms of career development. They rather hire outside talent than groom their own employees - especially on the sales and management side. Engineers are treated really well, so this is a con if you are not an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Where is the career advancement and professional growth? You really need to think about grooming the people who have made a difference for years to the bottom line and what you can do for them.

    Pros

    The People - Almost all employees are super helpful, collaborative, friendly, and sharp! The passion people share for the company & industry is impressive and I haven't personally experienced this before. The company tends to celebrate everything! (social crowd) which makes for a fun environment.
    The workspace - Great location (near downtown SF), the office itself is open, light, there are kitchens in each area/department (stocked with drinks & snacks), and "the penthouse" (aka, top floor space) is reserved for recreational activities like Ping pong, videogames, happy hours, etc.
    The work - The company is making a big difference, applying cutting edge technologies to make residential real estate search more personalized, fun, simple, and interesting. Trulia's mobile products are impressive, and real estate agents seem to truly benefit from Trulia's ad products (selling well)

    Cons

    Cultural divides: The speed in which the company has built its Inside Sales teams started to create a seperate culture, one that worked different hours, had a different type of job (sales vs. development), and most people on these teams were pretty new to the company and didn't get entirely acclimated with the dev teams. There is tons of work to be done in this area as this team continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Push the organization to innovate and develop new products. Continue to focus on "people matter" as a core value in terms of providing a work environment that employees love coming to. Make sure the company's focus is in the right areas (what makes Trulia unique).

    Pros

    Whether you are a contracted employee or on the payroll, a Newlian or a Trulian, you have a voice and an opportunity to contribute to making this company even better than it already is! The hours, the benefits, and the laid back work atmosphere are all reasons why we enjoy coming back to work day in and day out! No dialers, and no cheesey scripts when selling either!!

    Cons

    The only somewhat "con" that I can think of is for people who can't handle a start-up enviorment. For those whom can accept change, create the wheel, and go with the flow- this is the place for you to trive!

    I have been working at Trulia full-time

    Pros

    Transparent and authentic team. Fun + smart at all levels.
    Tons of growth = career opportunity for individuals.
    Everyone works hard and raises the bar.
    Great location in SOMA SF.

    Cons

    Fast growth = lots of change.
    Inside sales team is moving from a entry level call center to more established sales team. This is a good thing, but it's not comfortable for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your people and take feedback seriously.
    Keep the communications open and honest.
    Pay competitively, especially to your seasoned folks.

    Pros

    -You have a voice. I have personally met with almost ever director of the company to give advice on how we can make our product or process better. Then, sometimes within days, I get to see MY ideas incorporated into the business. No where else have I felt so empowered to contribute to the overall business strategy while holding such a frontline position.

    -Amazing culture. I love working with such a diverse group of success-crazed sales professionals. The attitude is "I hope you do well but not better than me" : ) I have such a healthy competitive attitude towards my co-workers, and since success begets success, they have made me better. My best friends are from Trulia.

    -Commission: Lots of money to be made when you are working for a company with such a strong brand within the industry. Like any job...some will settle for good while other strive for great. The Great Inside Sales reps are making great money.

    Cons

    You are selling to other sales professionals. Some people with past sales experience even struggle when it comes to selling to real estate agents. Cheesy, car-salesman tactics won't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Awesome company with a great product offering, a lot of opportunity to make good money. Growing company, promotion opportunities. TONS of potential. On top of all that- Amazing Culture and Atmosphere. Awesome people! High amount of diversity.

    Cons

    Hard work. Selling to salespeople. Phone work. Entry-Level time to build pipeline. If you are willingly to call and work hard, there are not a lot of drawbacks besides what is listed above.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the awesome culture we have built!
