    Zillow. Smaller than MS so should be able to do more.

    Microsoft has no refresher. Not sure about Zillow.

      It jumps a bit but it’s still pretty low. I think for an average review - which is pretty standard since MSFT is really flattening the curve except for top 5% performers - you’re looking at somewhere around 20-25K a year as a principal

      Yes it does. But Microsoft is a very massive, matured company. We don’t create massive new products or revenue streams because it takes so long. Thus...we don’t see that reflected in our compensation.

    Please also look at historical stock performances. Look at competitors , redfin is poised very strongly. Microsoft is very diversified , easy to move around within company , good resume builder .add to that amazing beenefis which may not seem like much from the outside but is substanital

      Redfin is not Zillow's competitor. They have different business models.

      The benefits is not good anymore compared to FANG. People are over weight their benefits.

      @nopee incorrect. With Zillow offers, the difference between redfin and Zillow is vanishing. Zillow is not a media or ads company anymore.

    As a long term goal, what do you want to do? Don’t just look at total comp but what will help you get to your goal. You are at Groupon so you already have the small/medium size company thing under your belt. Having a large corporation is helpful too (More defined process, larger organizational goals, etc).
