    Below par so far

    Developer III (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsMany smart and passionate employees.

    ConsI'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 Senior ManagementTalk to each other, roll up your sleeves and work with all groups.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Crazy Land!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsVast 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 Senior ManagementDon'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...

    developer 2

    Dev II (Current Employee)

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

    ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementSheer 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great coworkers but horrible management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

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

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementStop trying to intimidate the employees because you feel threatened by them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    How they managed to take this company public is a miracle

    Managerial (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsNot the worst job in the world. I've met some decent people.

    ConsBad 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

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

    ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementTake 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.

    A lot of work with very little reward

    Business Analyst II (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsGood entry level place to start to gain experience in what not to do. Can move up in ranks if you can stick it out.

    ConsManagement does not care about employees
    Good employees don't stay around very long
    Each division operates on its own very little coordination and communication between groups
    Outdated technology
    Restricted enviroment

    Changes are needed to be done asap!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsReally the company has changed quite a bit, when I first started the position it seemed great until current managers left and new management came in. So a lot of the great perks to being part of this company left. Only thing left that is good is having a shift diff

    ConsManagement needs to learn to treat employees with respect. Anytime time has been requested off it has been denied. This dept needs to restructure starting with management on down to the agents. Its awful that you can put your hard work in and its over looked. There is no room to grow due to managment always hiring outside of the company instead of looking at the talent within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the agents, there are many things that can make this a better place but honestly it starts from the upper tiers. The way things continue you will lose great workers. Also hiring part time employees could help allow full time agents a day off.

    Realpage is a great place to meet cool coworkers if you dont mind low pay and not having the tools to get your job done.

    Service Desk Engineer II (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsGreat co workers, lots of exposure to new systems and apps, Managment good about responding to the smaller daily needs.

    ConsManagment is dissconnected from what it takes to complete tasks assigned. There is no project managment department and no tools to provide structure to accomplishing goals. Email is being used for a substitute.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in touch with reality. Get your head out of the clouds and start giving a crap about how to manage the projects we are taking on.
