Extremely competitive if you have what it takes plus a strong work ethic.
Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 13, 2019
In my opinion, it appears that in the past the goals were easier to achieve as the sales teams was much smaller and therefore less reps to compete with. I see some great reps selling and setting agents up for success but I also see others reps selling just to get the revenue.

Then product works great if campaign is positioned properly but in my opinion, the sales teams should be reduced about 30 -40 %.
Pros
Great pay and benefits as long as you are hitting your quota
Cons
Too many reps in my opinion forcing some reps to sell just for the revenue.

Hard Sell sales with lofty goals
Premier Agent Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 10, 2019
Very little job security. The company is changing which is a good thing but the goals don't aline with the changes in the industry. Would like to see the company's core values reflected on the sales floor.

Contractor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 9, 2019
Stared as contractor did not get full time role. Company growth needs to be met with growing work force as well. Snacks! Great benefits! Needs better professional support for employees.

The job is as great as your manager
Representative (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 8, 2019
In my experience and in some experiences with other employees at other locations, the job is as great as your manager is. For most jobs this is true, but here having a good manager is very important. I lasted a little over a year. Like any relationships, some work and some don't.
Pros
They try
Cons
Still a corporation

Great Company
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 8, 2019
Great team to work with, generous compensation, excellent training and amazing work life balance. The only complaint is that the company is too comfortable replacing great sales people if a target is missed. Great employees who have consistently exceeded quota will be let go if they hit a rough patch instead of coaching them through it. You could have very positive quota attainment for the quarter or for the year, have a top conversion rate and show strong effort indicators and this will not be taken into consideration if you miss your sales target.
Pros
at least 1 free meal per week, competitive compensation, great training, fun environment, gym reimbursement, great benefits, work/life balance
Cons
Zero flexibility, high churn rate, frequent changes to the product and terms of sale.

Terrible Company For Everyday Employees
Premier Agent Concierge (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVDecember 3, 2018
Their "fast-paced environment" mostly meant lots of harmful changes without benefit. Be Team Zillow, but Team Zillow constantly ignores employee needs
Pros
None
Cons
Short breaks, changing schedules, changing benefits, numerous glitches, weekend schedules

Your standard cold-calling job. There are great benefits and the company is awesome, but now there is a great deal of pressure to succeed with being a public company.

They don't really want experianced
Renovation Technician (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 2, 2018
If you know what you are doing and have more experience than the guy you report t it is frustrating. The Millennial's are more worried about reports and the free snacks than they are about getting any work done. And when the work is not getting done because the reports reflect the amount of time that it takes you away from getting any actual work done. There's only so much you can do in a 8 hr day however this turns out to be more than that. Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. Which the PC police might want to arrest you for using that metaphor of a fact. So if you are into junk food and don't mind working on reports and trying to get your job done. Then go through the long winded relentless interviewing process of 5 minimal interviews wasting time asking the same questions and very dry and interpersonal interviews. Then this is your job for the next 6 months.
Pros
free junk food
Cons
no privacy, open office

Great CEO, Nice location, strong values & mission
Executive Assistant to Co-Founder (Bartonland) (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 28, 2018
ZG is a great place to work. The open office environment leaves something to be desired (definitely get sick here every Fall and Winter), but the location is convenient and beautiful. The CEO is very capable and approachable. Idea-sharing is easy here. Like most places, they have a very long way to go to have a gender-diverse Board of Directors, but they seem aware of this and might be working to improve it. Leadership is otherwise very strong. The best thing about ZG is the Leadership & Development/Corporate Culture team. They provide applicable training and tools that help make ZG a positive place to work for many personalities and work styles. Much of the goodness is organically started and grows with support of others at the company. This is getting a little harder as the company grows, but Slack and small work groups combat some of this.

Management turned from AMAZING to HORRIBLE in a few short months. No longer cared about Real Estate agents issues being fixed just how many you can push through in a day.
Pros
Snacks, catered lunches once a month, health benefits
Cons
Management, not caring about Real Estate agents just want numbers

Company has great people doing great work with high growth opportunities.
Recruiting Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WASeptember 14, 2018
I’ve seen Zillow grow for the last five years and love the people and leadership that work there. However, any company that experiences growth that quickly will always experience the usual pain points of trying to keep the same start culture it claims to have. A lot of bureaucracy has overshadowed some of its core values (move fast, think big) and I think some of its new leaders have effected some of Zillow’s culture and management style with that of much larger companies. overall the company has stayed at the forefront in its industry and mareketplace with its constant innovation, collaborative work, and top tier benefits packages and perks.

One of the hardest places to get hired at. They only hire less than 1% of the resumes they receive yearly. It was truly an amazing experience and brought new challenges every day.
