    I have been working at RealPage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've only been with the company a short time, but so far I have been pleased. The compensation is good, and there appears to be significant opportunities for growth and advancement. I also enjoy the numerous continuing education opportunities for employees.

    Cons

    Growth through acquisition has resulted in a large number of products that relate but aren't quite integrated. So many teams can also make it difficult to know who you need to work with in order to accomplish something. Coming from a smaller company environment (start-up) it can be a little frustrating how slow some groups operate. Vacation policy isn't great, but not unexpected for a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate the solutions to make things easier on employees and customers.

    Pros

    RealPage has significantly diversified its product offering through acquisition within the last year. These acquisitions have uniquely positioned the company in new industries with tremendous growth potential. From a sales perspective, success starts with an innovative training program which is designed to prepare and train all levels of sales acumen on proficiency and market readiness. Our new strategy centered on sales specialization has been implemented for certain divisions which allow our sales professionals to quickly contribute and achieve success in specific areas of the sales cycle.

    I have found the above coupled with a new office environment and culture to be big contributors in my overall satisfaction.

    Cons

    As with most new concepts or ideas, these faces of change are almost always met with resistance. Sometimes overcoming this friction can feel daunting without end. Providing an org chart is a must so new leadership isn't left to navigate a large corporate structure on their own wasting valuable time and resources. After almost a year I have found if you firmly believe in what you're trying to accomplish and use data to drive your decisions, you'll find the juice is worth the squeeze in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on creating transparency and providing insight into the overall strategy for all levels of the team.

    I have been working at RealPage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work here is the learning opportunities that we have as employees. The on-boarding training process is incredibly thorough and the School of Real Estate is made available to all employees and it helped me to better understand the industry. In my role, I'm constantly challenged to excel and there are many growth opportunities for me here.

    Cons

    Some of the more challenging aspects of the company is our changing culture. We're in the process of shifting to a more people-centric culture, versus an old school corporate one. This will obviously take some time, but RealPage is headed in the right direction.

    Pros

    Cant think of anything positive to say.

    Cons

    Don't pay you correctly - management just lies. they don't interview you for positions despite being at the company for years. They basically dont respect you, very american there way or the highway approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't buy anymore companies and especially if you dont know about the market.

    Current Employee - Freelance Photographer in Houston, TX

    I have been working at RealPage as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been shooting for RealPage for about a year now and have greatly enjoyed my time with them. The lead photographer who I report to is very friendly and helpful. The assignments are clearly defined and so are the companies expectations. A shot list is provided so that every shot that they require can be accounted for during the shoot.

    Cons

    They don't pay as much as some of the other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Email communication is great but if there is ever a time you need to speak with someone in management due to a question while on the job, it is difficult to get the person you need to speak to about the issue on the phone.

    I have been working at RealPage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is growing a ton and there is lots of room to move horizontally if you are not satisfied with your department. Vertical growth is definitely possible from what I've learned in the few months I've been here.

    Cons

    SF office is nice but a good 10-15 minute walk from Bart or Muni. Could benefit from better communication between offices as the main office is in Carrollton, TX.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All departments would benefit from a clear path on individual growth within a position and vertically. RP University needs to be more than an online training tool, but needs to include in person training, motivational tactics, and effective feedback loops.

    I have been working at RealPage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is changing and evolving on a monthly basis. Nearly 4000 people but can feel much smaller and more nimble. Very nice, intelligent, and caring leaders who also roll up their sleeves and do real work. A global footprint with offices in India, Philippines and Spain. Multiple acquisitions each year but much of the growth is expansion. Top player in the industry!

    Cons

    The challenges come with the rapid growth and being the leader in the industry. The company constantly reorganizes. Basic larger company functions like internal communications and business planning are missing. Common processes and systems are being created on-the-run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase internal communications to pull the company together and fix internal challenges and opportunities before further acquisition activity.
