    J'ai travaillé chez Zillow à temps plein plus de 8 ans

    Avantages

    High-growth business that recognizes and paths high-performers. Culture and leadership are second-to-none.

    Inconvénients

    Executive development initiatives were lacking.

    Avantages

    Culture, benefits, cool projects and approchability of executive staff.

    Inconvénients

    Hard to make as much money as a new hire if you have been here for a while in a non sales role. While the 360 annual review is amazing, for people who have moved up fast the financial opportunity is limiting over a long period of time.

    Conseils à la direction

    Pay your non sales folks market value so you don't loose them as the pay gap increases over the years. Keep up the amazing work. Innovate, diversify, go global, think 5th horseman (referencing the book the Four).

    Avantages

    There is fantastic leadership from the founders and the C-level executives. I have faith they are making the right decisions. It is great that our company is still controlled by the founders even though we are public. We never ever do anything just to make the quarter. We are doing really cool stuff to transform a fascinating industry, and there is a ton of runway ahead of us. We have lots of resources to support great...

    Inconvénients

    Pay outside of the tech team is not competitive, and even tech has trouble competing. Resource allocation across the company is imperfect for new and for existing headcount. Sometimes we think that communicating a lot is the same as being transparent. It can be hard to get stuff done if you aren't located in Seattle.

    Conseils à la direction

    Make companywide communications more balanced, sharing not only the good news but also the challenges we are facing. Find a way to get the Zillow tech org to be even more open to / more likely to seek out new ideas for product, process, org. Please switch to organic milk. RGBH is scary stuff!

    Inspiring leadership. Amazing colleagues. All kinds of opportunities. Great benefits, from pay and insurance to free soda, meals, and more. You will feel valued.

    Inconvénients

    Startup ways of getting things done don't always scale. Opportunity now is to build process without becoming a prisoner to it.

    Je travaille chez Zillow à temps plein

    Avantages

    I've been here for over 3 years(maybe a little more, maybe a lot more). I can count on one hand the number of days I've woken up in the morning and not felt like coming into work. A simple gauge and it's a big one for me. It's awesome to work on something as meaningful as empowering people to make better decisions about one of the most significant aspects of their lives. To do this with co-workers as smart, innovative...

    Inconvénients

    We're growing fast, organically and through acquisitions. There are inherent challenges to this that we're not immune from and as much I trust we'll get through all of it just fine, ultimately, it can make for challenges here and there in the interim: clarity/ambiguity, communication, prioritization, culture, recruiting/talent, employee development, operational vs strategic, etc. Again, the typical challenges for a high-growth...

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep the collaborative meritocracy alive. The Recruiting/talent bar high. Culture needs to be actively nurtured. Stay true to encouraging, demanding, outside-the-box thinking and expecting more than "incremental". Consumers are our North Star -- don't forget it! And, let's not forget "the little guys" across the company, especially those in backoffice groups who don't get the spotlight but keep this ship together on a...

    Thank you for the great review and feedback. You are right that we are running so fast here (which is good) that sometimes mistakes can be made, and sometimes we aren't quite as efficient as we could be. I also wonder sometimes whether we could do a better job of slowing down to celebrate ...

    If you want to be challenged, work in a company that has high expectations (and high rewards), be surrounded by ridiculously intelligent people, do innovative and cool things, make a difference in the lives and careers of real estate agents and brokers and have fun while you're doing it, then work at Zillow. If you want to slack off, not be trusted or listened to, have no input in how things are done or work in a place...

    ... Hmmm, there's a 20 word minimum for this field. How about, "Sometimes the view of Puget Sound from the high-rise office space is distracting." Sorry, that's all I have.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep on innovating and challenging the status quo.

    Incredibly smart, dedicated and passionate people. Amazing office space. A "start up culture" in a publicly traded company -- not easy to find. Work hard, play hard!

    Inconvénients

    None. Really. Management expects big things, but gives you the tools, experience and people to pull that off. Big expectations is a good thing!

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the great work, keep listening to your employees. Keep being visionary.

    Thin option allocations in a small co. with a declining book value. Top heavy org is unnecessarily political for a small company.

    Avantages

    Terrific people, most of whom have backgrounds from some of the top area companies like MS, Expedia, and Amazon. Big industry ripe for change- real estate is a multi-billion dollar category stuck in the dark ages. Chance to work on a disruptive business. Good work-life balance for a start up. Interesting and challenging work- you will work on projects that are core to the company and to its vision.

    Inconvénients

    Stingy stock grants- which is surprising given that this is what should be motivating employees. Liquidity event is many years away- plan on at least 3-4 years before your stock has value. Still struggling to drive revenue- advertising is an ok way to go, but the company needs more revenue streams. Limited career upside as it is a small company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus on ways to drive revenue. Develop products that professionals would be willing to pay for. Look for more than an IPO as a way to motivate employees.

    Avantages

    Important mission, innovative products, empowering business culture. You need to be ready to dive in and be a self starter, no hand holding here. Decision making is decentralized and everyone can have a voice. Most employees believe in the mission and all have equity. Lots of fun perks - the usual Internet start up stuff + surprisingly strong benefits.

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes there is to much debate, fairly relentless pace. Business side needs to be willing to travel.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep focused.
