How are things at Houzz?

Feb 10 26 Comments

Future outlook good? Culture? Is work life balance good or is it more like a sweatshop?

    Work life balance is good. It really depends on your position. I don't know a lot on the eng side but marketplace is not doing well, they recently cut over 300 people between q4 2018 and q1 2019. You'll be ok for the next year or so if you're in a sales for our industry solutions side because it's their current focus. If you want to be with a company when they go public I guess Houzz is a good opportunity.

    Btw, you won't get stock. They stopped giving it away 2-3 years ago.

    • That’s pretty messed up. Creating different classes of people.

      Not really. Total comp wise it’s pretty good for sales positions considering their shorter on average tenure with the company.

      I think all full time employees at headquarters (Palo Alto) get stock (RSUs)

    Heard that they have 2 year cliff for paper stock. Similar to amazon where you get paltry stuff for first 2 years

      No way. Two year cliff on paper stock? That’s crazy.

    The culture is really up beat and the prospects are great you just need to be clear about your goals from the offset

      Evidence ? Lol this is blind.
      I interviewed there and you can tell a lot by doing an onsite.
      Their interviewers seemed clueless and yet condescending. Aside from furniture recognition they're a boring e-commerce site (yes Glassdoor is too I know). I felt like it was a shitty company, you might think otherwise. Best of luck!
