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.

Snacks, catered lunches once a month, health benefits

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.

Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  130 5th AveAugust 21, 2018
The NY office of Zillow has a combination of the west coast inclusiveness and personal investment in the company combined with the end result focus of the east coast.
Zillow is very focused on making its developers as comfortable as possible so they can get the best work done possible. Good pay, benefits, perks, and more make it a pleasure to work there.

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.

Overall great company to work for. Management not the best.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COJune 26, 2018
Zillow by far is the best company I have ever worked for. The company has the best benefits I have ever seen and if you are in the good graces of management you will love everyday of work.

That being said if you do get a bad manager, good luck. There is no opportunity to transfer to a new team/ different manager.

If you do not instantly succeed there is no support from management to get you back on track.
Pros
great benefits, great compensation, great schedule
Cons
bad management no opportunity to transfer to a new team
