Would you consider Zillow for interview if you are currently at MS?

Not sure how much compensation would Zillow give. I see much lower numbers on Glassdoor than MS. Also the culture looks laid back, not sure if it would be good for growth, considering I am early in my career.

      I’m wondering if it’s a new thing or just certain parts of Zillow, but recently their offers are far more competitive than they have a reputation of having.

      Not sure when this started, I just interviewed late last year... but besides the TC, I really liked the company and the interview process was so pleasant and from what I hear the company culture is great.

      Same move, +1 on the 30% bump in TC. And I am looking to hire a few folks 😉

    Zillow gave me a competitive offer, better than amazon and Oci but worse than FB. They were willing to negotiate and were pleasant to work with.

      Not very helpful without specifying what the numbers were.

      What's bad for you might be acceptable for sometime else to try to interview there.

    We hire a lot of polical animals from MS. I just don't understand, why we are so obsessed with MS? They are much worse than they are used to be 10 years ago. Besides, lots of MS principals don't know how to use git and Linux environment. They like having meetings all day without any actual progress. Just don't know why. The MS gang is growing, like a cancer.

    I made a move just a few months ago and TC is very competitive for me. The culture is awesome compared to when I used to work at Microsoft too. I can say I am happy to come to work everyday now.

    Comps usually close to market rate, but walking in with other offers is always helpful because zillow does good job at matching. Company culture is great and we have an excellent work life balance.

    Zillow offered me very competitive pay, far above MS. But you need to have competing offers for them to raise.

    In terms of comp, Zillow can definitely give you a raise, as long as you are solid. Don’t simply assume there is an offer waiting for you just because you are from MS, according to my experience, only 50% of MS candidates can pass onsite. There were several candidates I interviewed didn’t prepare at all, it was waist of time for all of us.

      We hired a manager from MS last year, he was the worst manager I ever see. He is a diversity hire, not sure if we can get rid of him. We hired many great leadership positions from MS, but not this one.

    Would use as a practice interview. Otherwise, not very good

    Btw, in my case, the recruiter told me upfront what is the expected salary range for my interviewing role even before I started a technical phone interview. So if things are still the same, your recruiter might tell you about the TC as well when you do an initial HR interview.

    Glassdoor has never been a good resource for comps. It’s way off for all of our disciplines. Zillow comps are competitive with all the tech companies in Seattle.
