    I worked at Real Soft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location, huge staff (although most of them are recycled from one roll to another).

    Cons

    Management is totally oblivious to employee concerns and needs. Very unethical and unprofessional approach. Top management and HR give you the ear when you need them but thats about it after that its "Take it or leave it situation" many senior and good old employees have quit recently for better grounds.

    Office is in a very good location alothough a dangerous place to work when the building itself is in bad shape. AC/Heat malfunction, ceiling collapse, toilet leakages.... and more!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Losen up... you will do a lot more better
    Stop being sneaky on your employees if you cannot trust your employees how do you expect employees to work and trust you.
    Do not invade our privacy unless it is interfering with the work as such, which is not but still management has a way of sneaking up on anything and everything.

    I worked at Real Soft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As with just about every company, there are some quality people that work there.

    Office space is roomy, you certainly don't feel cramped.

    Plenty of lunch options nearby.

    Offers 401K

    Company has decent work from home policy.

    Cons

    Substandard office equipment. From computers to fax machines, you name it. If something needs to be replaced the replacement is the cheapest thing on the market and breaks immediately.

    Staff not diverse. When they do try and diversify its always forced and its for appearance's sake only.

    As other reviews have stated, company has high turnover rate. Some people are only hired to be fired. This goes hand in hand with company trying to appear more diverse only for appearance's sake.

    Zero growth. Never seen anyone get promoted within. Whatever you get hired as, that's how you're leaving!

    Atmosphere of non-cooperation. One department has no clue what another department is doing and doesn't care to find out. Lots of passing the buck. Emails are only answered by accident.

    Executives are all useless. Tell owner only what he wants to hear. Some of them are his relatives. Any executive that he's had who has told him hard truths he's gotten rid of.

    Health benefits aren't good. Premiums are sky high, especially if you want to cover your spouse or family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. Owner has been told many times by smart people what needs to be done. He refuses to listen.

    I have been working at Real Soft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - A few nice employees to work with.

    Cons

    - Upper management is completely inept and doesn't care about their employees; they've grown completely disconnected with how the industry operates in the 21st century.
    - Problems with their accounting office will make your head spin.
    - Compensation + vacation package is a joke compared to other companies.
    - The place is becoming less and less culturally diverse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop posting fake positive reviews on here. There's a reason your company's reputation takes a beating on Glassdoor...

    I have been working at Real Soft

    Pros

    A few pleasant employees to work with. The office itself is somewhat nice, with a full kitchen and nice outside area, if you like being surrounded by farms and other offices.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They treat you like you are a piece of meat. They fire people like it's nothing. I have seen people come and go every month. Employees fear the management because you never know who is going to get fired next.
    Almost no training what-so-ever. The area around the office is terrible.. You have to drive at least 10 minutes to get something decent to eat. Hours are long, and you get an unpaid lunch. Which means 9-6.
    I read 2 good reviews about Real Soft, and they were obviously written by a current employee. The two good reviews from March 2010 are not genuine reviews.
    Vacation seems great at 3 weeks, but that includes sick / emergency days.
    Worst job ever. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe treat employees the way you would like to be treated. Management feels like you are working for an 8th grader in a bad mood. Some of the most immature people I have ever dealt with. If you can avoid this place, do so like it's the plague.

    I worked at Real Soft

    Pros

    They offer 401k, offer group medical insurance ( though cover only appx 40% of cost so premium still is pretty high on employee), pay salary every two weeks without a miss.

    Cons

    Very ignorant of employee issues, will not call back if they need to "serve" rather than "need" the employee, the general rule in the company is not to return calls unless they really need you, frustrating to deal with their legal team as at times you feel legal department runs the company, no HR policy as such and you get a feeling that HR generalist (one person) is only there to sign docs, no bonus, no training budget, no yearly salary hikes, no promotions. If you are working on product development the pay is very low and work hours very high, overall not a supportive work environment at all. They do not offer a good growth path..haven't seen anyone growing in the organization vertically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They know what they are doing.

    I have been working at Real Soft

    Pros

    Employees and parts of senior management are great, the location is okay, and that is about all I can say

    Cons

    Other parts of senior management are clueless, cheap, and shouldn't be running a business. Employees feel unappreciated. Parts of senior management are trying to fix this, but the feelings are deep-seeded and won't go away unless management is willing to spend a few extra dollars or pat people on the back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at how you're running this business, and ask yourself, how would you want to be treated? Is this how you are treating your employees?

    Pros

    Atmosphere is somewhat relaxed. Your allowed privacy . The VP is very helpful

    Cons

    The pay is a joke here. The CEO does not care for internal network nor will he pay fairly. There is no room for advancement or opportunities. No recognition for your work and No acknowledgment at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO could improve on employee satsification. Could allow employees access to training for new opportunities. Could spend some more on hiring the right educated people
