    I have been working at Zillow full-time

    Pros

    One of the best places i've ever worked - i'm treated like an adult and given the resources and support to do my job. I also like how transparent they are about what we're working on and that the CEO encourages honest feedback from people.

    Most of the people i've met so far have been lovely, without ego and focused on helping each other (bar one or two who've been here a few years and throw their seniority around behind management's back)

    Cons

    Continue to be transparent with plans. Sometimes information takes time to trickle down.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - incorporating employee feedback and listening to the lifeblood of your business - the people! Continue to ensure that those in leadership positions are the right people, there are a few narcissistic/self-serving people in the management/executive sphere that are not team players but because they're good at their roles, the behavior is let slide.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Vancouver, BC) in August-2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter, did a take-home assignment with Javascript. This was followed by 2 phone screens, mostly about the position, questions that I would have, and briefly discussing how I did on the assignment, and finally an onsite interview. The onsite required me to do write some code on the spot, but the other 1:1s were behavioral.

    Here's what women in tech actually think about their employers

    We know the stats: women hold about 21 percent of technical jobs at Silicon Valley's top companies. Many of the women who make up that 21 percent have some feedback about their employers. According to a new report from the jobs site Comparably, the biggest tech companies-and their CEOs-don't make it to the top of the heap when women in the tech industry rate their employers.
