Job depends on your manager and group

Manager (Current Employee)
Carrollton, TX

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

ProsLaid back atmosphere.
Nice workspace.
Decent work/life balance but it all depends on your manager and group. There are some really terrible managers that play favorites, politic constantly, talk behind everyone's backs and only worry about making themselves look good. They rule by fear.
There are some managers that really care about the employees and growing them professionally. They lead by example and want you to have a life outside of work. The groups/departments are drastically different.
If you are lucky enough to land in a good group with a quality manager that wants you to succeed, hang on! They do exist.

ConsDecent pay if you're coming off the street. Transferring within the company, ridiculous. Promotions don't mean you can make what your peers are making for the same job or the offer you'd have if you were an outside candidate. It means an increase that has to be approved by 10 people and probably won't get you anywhere near where it should.
The company has a lot of growth and you can almost do nothing and keep your job. That being said, new positions are only added in India and the Philippines but the tasks assigned to them is embarrassing. Most of my peers in India have 10 more years of education or experience or both but they are given the tasks that a high school student could accomplish. They should be utilized more or they'll be bored and leave.
Management is so top heavy!! And they reorganize the groups every 30 days or so! I know people who don't even know who they report to.

Advice to Senior ManagementThose surveys we take every year, read them.

Developer Career Killer

Developer IV (Current Employee)
Carrollton, TX

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

ProsHmmm. I don't have anything positive to say about my time here. It has been a very disheartening and disappointing experience.

Cons1) No career path for Developers - I personally one Dev who has been at Dev III for ten years. 2) Outsourcing real development - what kind of software company outsources the development of its products to a third-world consulting company? It shows a complete lack of regard and respect for its own Developers. RP developers are there only for maintenance. 3) Lack of direction and obvious incompetence from Executive Management - RP goes through a management "restructuring" every six months. I personally have reported to four managers in 2.5 years and I know other Devs who have reported to 4 or 5 different managers in the last 1.5 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementFall on your sword already - you are the problem!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Subpar pay is the only drawback but a major one unfortunately

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than a year

ProsWork environment is very relaxed, coworkers are great, excellent managers, always some interesting things to be working on, lots of new opportunities to be involved with depending on abilities

ConsBenefits aplenty but salary is comparably low for the SF tech sector, this is troubling because I may be leaving soon because the compensation disparity is becoming glaringly apparent for what I could get elsewhere in the same position

Advice to Senior ManagementBoost compensation or there will be some major turnover in 2014.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A lot to like, punctuated by frustration

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ProsCollaborative work environment and colleagues, robust suite of products and services for the target markets, steady growth, clear bonus metrics (although some are out of the control of the individual), flexible work arrangements, tight but not oppressive travel policies, an openness to new ideas, at least at the department operations level.

ConsCommunication from executives about strategy and changes is very guarded until moments before it is implemented, leaving employees no opportunity to provide feedback before new policies, structures and approaches are implemented. Advancement and growth opportunities are stifled by absent career path definition, cost controls, and the suspicion that there are backdoor deals between executives to keep employees where it is most convenient for those executives rather than allow them to pursue roles that grow them.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to develop a succession plan, and long term employee loyalty, you must do better at using the quarterly and annual review process to outline career paths and opportunities for employees, you must improve communication (take that as a general and universal suggestion across all areas) and strive for as much transparency as possible when structural changes are made.

Family Oriented

Licensed Customer Care Representative (Current Employee)
Greer, SC

I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company really values their employees and understands the employees need to balance their personal life and career. Paid holidays, 2 days off at Thanksgiving, 2 days off at Christmas. Plenty of vacation and sick days. Lots of fun catered events. Hour lunch breaks. If you need a day off you can switch with other people.

ConsMedical insurance is not that great, it covers you but its really expensive. The pay is not that great for what you do, but its not terrible either. If you need a steady paying job, this would be it. Raise once a year.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a new infraction system, Doctors notes should not count against you. You can do everything by the book. Think outside the box.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poor management, not a positive workplace

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Carrollton, TX

ProsPay is ok and the location is convenient to restaurants

ConsCliques similar to highs cool. Poor management.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. Annual surveys show how employees feel and nothing changes.

One year in and great company to work for.

3D Animator (Current Employee)
Carrollton, TX

I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than a year

ProsRoom to grow, and people to learn from are everywhere. I always know whats expected of me and more importantly I feel the desire to exceed those expectations at all times. People above me listen to me and my feedback is used almost all the time.

Good medical and dental benefits

Tuition and gym reimbursement after a time period

Casual dress code

Great location

ConsCant say Ive experienced as much company culture in my one year working here as I have at other places, probably due to the corporate atmosphere, or that most of my department is out of state.

Parking is bad sometimes

Bathrooms are too few and small and could use music. Pretty awkward being in a crowded silent bathroom waiting in line.

Could use a cafeteria and or nicer break rooms for having lunch on site.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
