Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 23, 2015
Trulia was a great company to begin with, but it has lost way after zillow acquisition.
Trulia is more highlighted a discovering or personalization experience rather than for actual search or accurate buying experience. Some of the best engineers have left and the management does not give a dime to care about the attrition rate. Upper management follow favoritism to promote the teams they think are relevant.
Overall, not a very engineering driver but management or business driven culture left now. Hope it improves if and when upper management exits.
Pros
compensation is ok, good events / activities, z benefits are great
Cons
management, bureaucracy, job profiles not accurate, lot of yes man left

Customer Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COMay 8, 2016
Great company to work for. Great hours, free food daily, game room. I learned a lot of salesforce, ticketing, working on the back end of a website. Management pick and chose favorites, which made for a lot of extra drama.

Amazing Benefits- Call Center Environment
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Centennial, COMarch 11, 2015
Trulia provides the best benefits that I think that I will ever have. Most of the people who work there are friendly, and they offer a huge selection of food that means you can skip the drive through for breakfast and save money by staying in for lunch.

The tough part is that the management team acts more like a "big brother" than a leader. Promotions are also based on popularity instead actual skill sets.

If you are looking for a good starter job Trulia is the place to be, but if you are looking for a career then you should look in a different direction.

Great Company
Senior Manager, Account Sales (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 7, 2015
Great company, great people, and even more so a great culture! There are a lot of changes going on that will be extremely beneficial for the company and the consumers.

When accepting a position with this organization, take the benefits into consideration, they are amazing!

If you are a top performer, you can be compensated extremely well.
Pros
Culture, Teamwork Environment, Outstanding People, Benefits are unbelievable (in a good way)
Cons
If you aren't used to it, CHANGE. It is the only thing constant in this place. It wasn't a con for me, but it can be for those that are used to a linear sales organization

Franchise Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAApril 8, 2015
Not only did I work side by side with great people, but the clients that I communicated with on a daily basis were always different, therefore, no two days were alike. Free food and beverage was a plus for sure. Not only was there a ping pong table but Also foosball and pop a shot basketball.
Pros
close to home, flexible hours, competitive compensation.
Cons
Can't think of any. Trulia was a fabulous company to work for.

Cons
Fast-paced and competitive work environment

Business Services (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 5, 2012
This is a great company to work for. The company is focused on treating their employees right, and have the best benefits of any company I have worked for. The job itself can be tough at time, as it is a very metric/quota based company. Turn-over is relatively high based on the stress of the job, but it is a great culture and environment.
Pros
great benefits and laid back culture.
Cons
tough job

Great sales environment and people!
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, CoAugust 30, 2014
If you love inside sales Trulia is amazing. Your managers will mentor and work with you. You can set your own sales schedule ( breaks, lunches, etc). Competitive teams, and coworkers who work together to help everyone meet their monthly and weekly goals.
Pros
Food packed cafeteria, great environment, happy hours, great benefits, workplace that gives back to the community
Cons
commission is very good, but limited. rougher work environment for females. base pay is a little low.

Management is chasing their tail. Each month the focus shifts and reasons for said shift are not communicated to the masses. This causes a great deal of frustration and confusion.
Pros

Inside Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 13, 2015
This place had amazing workplace culture. It was probably my favorite position in regards to atmosphere and people that work there. The job itself was a sales job so I would of like more job security but otherwise it was a great company to work for.

Call Center With High Turnover
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Centennial, COOctober 2, 2014
Great benefits, but low, hourly compensation. Commission structure changes all the time and quotas go up every month. Looks good on the surface until you realize that all they care about is high dials and making more money for the company. You don't get paid on anything you sell until you hit 65% and the quotas keep going up...a lot of people don't make a commission check at the end of the month, which makes for a mixed bag of negativity and pseudo-positivity at the beginning of the next month within your team.
Pros
Free food, great coworkers, great benefits
Cons
Low pay, you can get screwed over right at the end of the month if someone cancels due to not getting leads.

Great benefits, revolving door, Not for me
Account Sales (Former Employee) –  Centennial, CoJune 2, 2015
Great product for consumer but not for client. Revolving door. Work with angry real estate agents that were sold a product to just get them in the door. Most were not set up with correct expectations. I enjoyed working with accounts to turn them around to purchase more. I felt more like a sounding board then an account sales rep. Not for me.
Pros
Free food, Great benefits
Cons
Angry Clients / Merger

This position did not suit most of my interests
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 25, 2012
I was able to work with many computer programs that I was never exposed to before which is helpful for future job oppurtunities. My management was always available to ask questions and get advise from, as well as my associates. The hardest part of the job would have been the learning curve for me. I was never in a sales position before and was unaware of what exactly was expected from me and this ended up being the reason that I decided to leave the company.
