    I have been working at Trulia full-time

    Pros

    Competitive base salary, good RSU compensation.
    There are people who still care about the company.
    Snacks variety is great.
    Good health insurance.

    Cons

    Most of the best people have left.
    Politics and some really nasty egomaniacs.
    No ESPP.
    Lunch is free only a few times a month.

    Advice to Management

    Product team is good at politics but not convincing at actual PMing.

    Every year, the company goes through the same exercise to redo the search results page and the product details page. And it still doesn't bring in more traffic.

    Hire good product people and try to keep them there.

    I have been working at Trulia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love coming into work every day. I work in an environment that promotes risk-taking, daily learning, and ownership of your work. I feel like my voice is heard when I want it to be heard. I feel respected by my peers, despite the fact that I am in my early career.

    Cons

    I don't feel like Zillow Group innovates anymore. We have every possible feature related to real estate and are only redesigning pages, or re-engineering features. There haven't been that many new, game-changing products being released (besides Premier Agent, which I don't work on).

    Pros

    Just an awesome place to work, people are incredible friendly, the environment reinforces the ideals of innovation and practicality. You have to be a willing to be open and friendly with your coworkers and have fun.

    Cons

    Honestly I didn't foresee any issues that couldn't be solved outside of a simple conversation. People are approachable and helpful in fixing issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! We are young and love to be fed with new challenges.

    I have been working at Trulia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management has done a remarkably good job of selecting colleagues who are both smart and a pleasure to work with. The atmosphere at the office hits the sweet spot of being motivated to succeed and also cooperative, valuing the well being of each member.

    Cons

    I dislike commuting to downtown SF, which is hectic, and wish I could work from another location. If I ever leave, Bay Area commute/expense will probably be why.

    Pros

    Great snacks, great people, they are always having fun events. I was a temp contractor though so my experiences or not really representative

    Cons

    There is not much I can really say, as mentioned before I was more of a temp contractor on an assignment so I can't say that I ever got a sense of what was 'wrong' with the company

    Pros

    I started at Trulia before IPO and left before Zillow acquisition. Trulia has great culture and people. It's very fun to work there. Innovation week, mind body spirit day, easter egg hunt..etc.

    "Truly one of Denver's best places to work!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Trulia full-time

    Pros

    Zillow Group is consistently on several "best places to work" lists and for very good reasons. I have been with several organizations throughout my professional career and Zillow Group has hands-down done more for me than anywhere else I've worked. First off, the culture is second-to-none. From free food and beverages on a daily basis to incomparable perks and bonuses, Zillow Group truly has an amazing culture. The leadership, starting with Spencer Rascoff on down, the management, and the employees make it a truly great place to work! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic career opportunity! I can honestly say I look forward to going there each and every day and contributing to my team and the organization as a whole!

    Cons

    Being a tech-based company, you must constantly change and adapt to stay ahead of the competition. Our CEO, Spencer says that if you get complacent, you will get blindsided by the competition. With that said, change is the only constant at Zillow group. If you are flexible and adaptable, it is a very fun, exciting, and challenging atmosphere, but if you prefer the status quo and do not do well with change, it would most certainly not be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on living the core values!
