    Disillusioned.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPaid competitively. Flexible work hours and OOO.

    ConsTreated condescendingly by top level mgmt. Excessive micromanagement from the CEO on down (e.g., the CEO of a publically traded company and overseeing 3,000+ employees is literally writing the press releases).

    Cannot trust the data.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust and verify.

    Think twice before accepting the job offer

    (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Prosstandard benefits available in the bay area.

    ConsSenior managements in the corporate office (Dallas) think the employees in the San Francisco office are overpaid even though their salaries are 10 - 15% below the market. Managements don't value their employees especially OpsTechnology Division. They believe every jobs can be outsourced to India. There are no room for growth. I would not recommend my friends to work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf 3 to 5 people are leaving each week, it's a sign. It's telling you are not doing a good job. If you can't retain your employees how can you manage the departments.

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

    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

    Run for the hills, run fast, run far! Don't say I didn't warn you...

    Senior Developer III (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsIt's a job,it pays money. I was given a good bit of freedom to learn new things.

    ConsIt's a dead end job. Promotions from within are a very rare occurrence. This company grows by buying companies. The acquired companies result in many new VP's, some rather meaningless. Average annual raise was 1%. I grew my job well beyond it's original scope with no recognition or compensation, despite my efforts. My experience is pretty typical, as all those I worked with felt the same way. The rave reviews written here must have come from their HR department. RealPage is *always* hiring. There's a reason for that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your employees to do their jobs, and reward a job well done. Clean out all the fluffer management.

    Wake up!

    Various (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsWhen I joined RealPage, there were opportunities for growth, there was an aggressiveness to competing in the market place, and there was the ability to innovate and make a difference. There are still groups within RealPage that are that way, but they seem to be a dying breed.

    ConsRealPage has moved most of its development to India or the Philippines. They don't really innovate much anymore - they are mostly in maintenance mode. I've heard they are now an Agile shop and certainly engineering in the US has been significantly reorganized, but those I've talked to who still work there say it is window dressing, and nothing has really changed. Often, the people who are really good do not get promoted - they get sidelined. I guess it depends on the division/product.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompete! You may be big and public, but you are capable of falling. Hire some User Experience experts and aggressively synthesize your UI's - you have so many products but no continuity. Hire some BI experts and actually deliver a product already. Hire front-end experts and finally support all modern browsers. IE8 is not a modern browser. You were once a great company - start acting like one again or risk losing your largest clients. You're a lot worse off than you think...

    Dysfuntional

    Vice President (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsDecent Pay, Good equity compensation structure.

    ConsCEO changes direction frequently and rules with an iron first. Senior management team changes almost annually, Technology is outdated technology, products are stale, no investment in modernizing, too many acquisitions poorly integrated and envisioned.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower people to do their job, invest in getting out of 1999 web technology, make the products work better together. Stop buying revenue and focus on making what you have better so your sales reps can sell more of it.

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

    Dysfunctional Company that has a couple pros but mostly cons

    Developer II (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsCompetitive salaries, flexible hours in SOME departments (depending on your supervisor).

    ConsNo opportunities to move up the ladder even something like from Dev 2 to Dev 3.

    90% of new hires are coming from the Philippines. There is a high turnover rate of developers.

    Developers in the US are forced to work early mornings and nights with the overseas people on a regular basis (anywhere from 2 days to 4 days a week is my experience).

    There is little production support from operations, with many issues coming directly to developers from the customers. This is mixed, some products have more support than others.

    WAY to much management, very top heavy company. This company really needs more developers and business analysts to support products.

    Very little employee appreciation shown through any sort of perks. Gym membership ($25 dollar monthly value) is the biggest...

    Technology being used is pretty old, Realpage needs to bite the bullet and rebuild many things from scratch.

    This company acquires several companies a year rather than build products from scratch but integrates them poorly. What ends up happening is that each individual company ends up working in a vacuum doing whatever they were doing before. Every once in a while there is push to integrate this product or that product with another (usually because clients complain), but these rarely go anywhere because there is no will or leadership to make it happen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen, and I mean REALLY listen AND implement employee suggestions. Get all senior developers from each team into a room and have them brainstorm ideas for integration their products and bringing more value to customers.

    Developers REALLY enjoy this sort of thing and this might inspire some great technology because a developer who created an idea is a developer who will work hard to implement it.

    A solid paycheck and nice people, but no chance of bonus and low level culture.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsSolid paycheck and nice people.

    ConsSF office run from Dallas, which has an overbearingly right wing/corporate bent. Not the culture people in SF are used to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your employees when they speak and try to help them with career opportunities, not bury their applications inside your desk.

    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...

    worst company ever was glad when i found something else

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are quite a few great shopping and eating places located near by, lots of living areas around the facility

    Consdo not care about employees, tend to move managers around too much. The vip's bounce from one position to another when one mistake is made

    Advice to Senior Managementstop being so eager to let people go and try to train employees properly

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
