    I have been working at RealPage full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    casual dress, benefits are average and so is pay. Like most Company's some departments seem to work well and others don't.

    Cons

    lack of upward mobility
    massive overtime with no rewards or recognition
    Lack of inter-department communication and follow through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top executives still treat many facits of this company like a small business
    Departments refuse to work together to improve overall Company results
    Company continually losing top talent of employees that DID make a difference and care.

    Pros

    The people you get to work with are great, and the building is very modern so it gives a nice bright and open atmosphere to work in, and its a short walk from bart so it makes for a nice commute. They provide once a week catering for either breakfast or lunch, and it comes from reasonable resturants in the area.

    Cons

    Because the headquarters is in Texas there is a huge disconnect not only in management, but also the work that is being done by the employees in the SF office. There's also very little direction and communication both from management in the SF office and from Carrollton, on the direction of projects, causing confusion on the intention of what is needed. Over half the office has quit in the last 3 months, and now they are laying off an entire team. They now have plans to sublet half of the office space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a process and road map together for what you want to achieve, communicate with with the people who are working on these projects, and stay on top of it.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great co workers, make your own hours for the most part.

    Cons

    Stale management who do not understand the sales cycle, compensation plan, or our solutions. Antiquated solutions and UI. Growth through acquisition only. Sales data inundated with false information as reps are held to unrealistic quota. $870,000 for AR1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take two weeks off and them quit.

    Pros

    Many smart and passionate employees.

    Cons

    I've been surprised at the lack of cross organization knowledge. Processes are rough around the edges and product alignment across the organization doesn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to each other, roll up your sleeves and work with all groups.

    Pros

    The offices are close to lunch spots and reasonable housing options. They do offer benefits after 30 days but they are below par compared to other employer options within the DFW area.

    Cons

    Vast majority of staff are inconsequential to any decision making capability within the company as everything must go through the CEO, literally. This results in mediocrity as the norm and little to no engagement from the staff because they feel there is no value add based on their knowledge and/or decision making capability. The company is able to attract talent at the Manager level and below although above the Manager level it is difficult due to zero autonomy. Turnover at the VP level and above is high as their skills are under utilized primarily because of the control freak CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire individuals and give them an Executive title if your not willing to provide them with the level of autonomy and benefits that is normally accompanied with a role at that level in vast majority of other public companies. Shaking my head...

    Pros

    Good Medical, 401k Match, possible to move up into management

    Cons

    Lots of individual units that don't work together well. This is primarily because RP acquires several small companies a year and doesn't integrate them really well.

    RP is also in the process of replacing the current workforce of developers, QA, BA's and so on with a new cheaper workforce in the philippines. Basically, when someone quits here, their work goes overseas and no one is rehired in the US. What's happening because of this is that there is a heavy management presence in the US corporate office but few actual workers in the US.

    Most of the directors/vice presidents aren't former developers which doesn't work well as this is a software company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sheer of the director level of the company and add more project managers who are actual developers in their place. Stop hiring overseas, because this is causing resentment here. I'm having to work my regular 9-6 plus once or twice a week get online at 9-10 pm to work with people over there.

    Pros

    The employees are great. Some of the best coworkers you could ask for. Most everyone goes above and beyond to do a superior job.

    Cons

    Management leaves a lot to be desired. They are two faced. They say what you want to hear but are only interested in looking out for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to intimidate the employees because you feel threatened by them.

    Pros

    Not the worst job in the world. I've met some decent people.

    Cons

    Bad benefits that have absolutely no administration. Very poor culture and morale. Leadership was placed in position based on politics and personality rather than skill. Incredibly micro-managed -- the CEO has to approve everything. No strategic direction. Unclear job roles. Outdated work method of sitting at desk all day rather than telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to take this company into the future, you should get rid of legacy employees and managers and find people who know what they are doing.

    Real Page is a public company being managed with little or no communication to those that manage the processes.

    Pros

    Benefits - several positive changes made in 2012.
    Office surroundings help deal with the negatives with the company
    Easy access to company campus

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    'Ivory tower' mentality and not willing to listen to innovations
    Senior managment not in tune with lower management
    Senior management looses its creditblity when promises/assurances are made and not delivered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at Senior management as a comparison to well run organizations and make changes accordingly
    Hire an outside firm to assess the ability of Senior management to take Real Page to the next level as a public company.
