Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMarch 6, 2017
Great work environment and a lot of potential earnings. Really clear line between your work and home life along with stellar benefits. The culture and mindset of each team is in sync across the board along with the pay in regards to how hard an individual chooses to work.

Nothing bad to say about this organization.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Work and Home Life
Cons

Consumer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 27, 2017
I love working for Zillow, and I appreciate that they are always trying to improve the work culture they've created for their employees. My managers are amazing, and I've never once felt like they don't see me as a human and care about both my job life, but also my life outside of work.

The best company ever!
Client Engagement Specialist (Current Employee) –  Centennial, COFebruary 17, 2017
Every quarter, it seems they keep raising their standard of work ethics (absolutely no goofing around!) but highly rewarding with prizes and bonuses based on merit, which is fair. The high-volume work can seem a bit stressful at times, but you can always count on the support and guidance of your colleagues and team leads to help you every step of the way. It is also in their interest to see you succeed, so no excuses! ;)
Pros
great benefits, vested stock options, transparency, accountability

Great place to work and great company culture.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 29, 2017
This company gets good reviews for good reason. Great place to work at and you truly feel like you are part of something big. There is catering on Fridays, company meetings involving inspirational speakers, they even have their own brew of beer! Although I was only there for a brief contract, it was a great and fun time.
Pros
Great work environment and company culture
Cons
None. Best place to work.

Management manages like bullies
Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 18, 2017
Dial for dollars is their motto, relationships and consultative selling is not their style. Ridiculous quotas set on each sales person with bullies in the back ground managing by fear and intimidation.
Pros
Great corporate office perks: free food, game room
Cons
Ridiculous quotas and no compassion for hard working sales team

Do you have a moment to speak to a real estate agent?
Client Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Englewood, CODecember 20, 2016
What an amazing company to work for. I just wish the rest of the company thought the same for me. The PAC department doesn't get the credit it deserves.

The job can be broken down in 3 sentences.

Easy training and connect customers to real estate agents. Make calls and document with simple online program.
Make 400 calls a day in a 10 hour shift.

That's it!

It's pretty simple and the pay ain't bad either. Starting is 17 an hour and quarterly bonuses and months bonuses for doing real well.

Amazing perks and benefits.
Really easy to get laid off.

When I was there. There was no QA and phone calls are still not recorded cause all you do is transfer calls. No help support of real info is traded. Just transfer and set up phone appointments. Over and over and over and over and over.
Pros
Works shifts, catered food all the time, break rooms, free food, perks and benefits
Cons
No growth, No holidays, No overtime.

Work environment is like being in a high school auditorium.
Business Consultant (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CADecember 13, 2016
They do not care about the workers or the real estate agents they are selling too. The turnover rate is very high. When a sell is made they celebrate while the real estate agent is still on the phone by blowing whistles and shaking party hand clappers. The managers have zero experience is managing and have no idea of what they are doing.
Pros
Free lunch on Fridays
Cons
Management is horrible. I was told if I wanted to be successfull I needed to work from 6am to 6pm

Trulia/Zillow was an amazing startup, with a great culture at first.As Zillow bought it and changed the dynamic, the culture started to resemble a corporate entity more.

Benefits are amazing, but there is not a lot of room to grow. Management does not try and help your personal growth and development.

Sr Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 25, 2016
Zillow is a great place to call home. I worked for two years for this company as they kept buying the companies I was working for.
Great culture and would encourage anyone to apply.

If this is absolutely your last option take it. Terrible managment, training and culture. You'll see plenty of cool aid drinkers who review Zillow but frankly don't know any better. Do yourself a favor and keep looking.

Regional Inside Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 4, 2016
Many employees unhappy and made for a non positive atmosphere. The benefits were by far the best of any company I have worked for.

Pretty Amazing Place
Analyst Level (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 22, 2015
A Non-Sales Viewpoint:
ZIllow has a great culture and is full of amazing and intelligent people. If you want to work in a tech job with great work/life balance, amazing benefits, while surrounded by smart people, you should work at Zillow.

Hardest Part: The technical challenges. I think this should be the hardest part, because you aren't learning anything otherwise.

Most Enjoyable: Free lunches, co-workers, solving challenging problems.

ps- The CEO is awesome, everyone loves him!!
Pros
401k match, free lunch, game rooms, standing desks, candy wall
Cons
Some tight deadlines
