Thank you for this review.
I try to do frequent company meetings, and lots of small group meetings, in order to keep communication very open between execs and the entire company. You're right that

    Pros

    Working for Zillow offers the employee some job stability. That is all dependant on which department you work in. For eligible employees, the employee benefits are decent, at best. For someone who is looking for benefits, these are better than no benefits.

    Cons

    I feel, working for Zillow is a dead end job. There is very little room for growth. Again, that does depend on, who you work for, rather than ones competancy. The pay scales need to be re-evaluated. There are much better paying jobs in the same industry. The company requires long hours, not a job for someone who wants to have free time to spend with their family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel the management needs to really listen to employee feedback. The employees dont feel they are heard and that their opinions are valued. More promoting from with in the company should be looked at, as well as, the pay scales. There are a great deal of companies out there, with same job descriptions, that pay much, much higher than Zillow does.
