    Pros

    New leaders are having impact and attracting more non industry talent. Quality of products is on the rise. Glad to see the 4th quarter results beat street expectations. Appears that sales is reporting strong growth which means the company will need to hire more people to implement backlog of orders.

    Cons

    It's a real job, which demands constant focus. Small acquisitions can be a distraction, so focus on things that really move the revenue and market.

    Advice to Management

    If and when (hopefully next year) we move out of the overgrown Carrollton location, it will be time to build out a new location that makes a cultural statement. There is reason that RP is #1 in its space, its the people. Building a new location is a chance to make a statement about the company, what types of employees we should hire and place to celebrate. Our current location is ok, but there is no question the employees would appreciate input on the next location. You have a chance to get this really right. More communication, more excitement, and more collaboration in this process.

    Your points are very valid. The good news is we beat the financial guidance in Q1, so we are stringing some solid results together, quarter over quarter. We have added several new leaders this year ... More

    Pros

    There is a wide variety of professional opporunities at RealPage for which I am grateful. I joined 6 years ago as part of a small acquisition and I am much better off than I was before. The company is moving the needle in a positive direction.

    Cons

    We need to break down the silos and treat our customers as if we are one cohesive company. The sales team is only expected to get signed orders. They leave the problem-solving and expectation setting to others.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in resources that drive collaboration across product teams.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay ($15 for me in Internal Audit), friendly people, bought lunch for us

    Cons

    Not really any opportunities to meet a lot of people in different departments

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with surrounding departments

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

    Pros

    * Great team and upper management in my division. * Good compensation. * No micro-managing. * Moving to new campus next year! Finally under the same roof as the rest of the company. * Career advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    * Lack of communication from upper management. Employees want to be more involved in giving feedback and suggestions on changes made that effect them. It almost seems like a shroud of secrecy around upper management. * High Deductible only option for health insurance. I decided to go with it for the first time this year. Big mistake and now the other plan is no longer an option. We have used our HSA savings as soon as it is available each payday and have had a lot of out of pocket expenses that otherwise would have been covered by a co-pay. I would rather pay a higher rate and have lower out of pocket expense for medical needs. * Working from home is highly discouraged. * Sometimes workload gets overwhelming and the employee and clients suffer for it. * Rarely see upper management (VP and up) engage with their subordinates. It would be nice for them to get out and talk to the employees occasionally. * It is very obvious that Sr. Management works excessively long hours. It makes you almost not want to get promoted because there is no way they have time for life outside of Realpage.

    Advice to Management

    While it looks like I had more Cons than Pros, overall I do feel lucky to work for Realpage. Overall it is a great company. I have yet to work for an employer that doesn't have room for improvement. Keep employees informed. Spend more money on team building activities AWAY from office. Consider offering multiple options for insurance, even if it is more expensive. Everyone has different circumstances and we need options. On the new office, please, please, please do not go away from individual work stations where we can have our own desk, since we spend so much time there. Having open areas is fine to change things up a bit, but I need my space and some division from distractions. Being on the phone constantly throughout the day, I would not be able to concentrate with no barrier between me and the rest of the team.

    Pros

    Interesting, challenging work. Positive work culture -- collaborative environment, friendly relationships, and a team environment that celebrates success. MAJOR strides in the past several years to address company's biggest weaknesses: communication, strategic planning, processes, stability, and employee appreciation have all improved hugely. It is an admittedly niche industry, but it's nice to be working on industry-leading solutions even in a niche.

    Cons

    Don't always do a great job of planning/communicating horizontally across product groups or aligning by shared functional area. Fast-paced, all-hands-on-deck work environment leaves relatively little structured time for training & education.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on optimizing the organization to promote collaboration and integration. We sell integrated solutions; we need integrated business processes. Invest in training and education - on skills and on RP products. Develop a program to loan out employees across product groups to circulate culture and knowledge. Collaboration within teams is important; we also need to collaborate across teams, and build knowledge and exposure throughout the company.

    Pros

    I've been been here for nearly one year and couldn't be happier. Expectations for hard work are high here and I feel very motivated to meet them because I am treated as a professional and feel my opinions/recommendations are valued. My co-workers, including my boss, are also amazing, very smart, accountable and great at what they do.

    Cons

    The culture is OK, but could use a boost. Additional volunteer opportunities and company-wide team building would be welcome.

    Pros

    The people are amazing here! Direct supervisors are compassionate and really listen to your ideas on how to improve processes. The culture is laid back. Plenty of opportunity for growth, but it's not just given out to anyone with a college degree or someone who just shows up--you have to work for it!

    Cons

    The entry level job can be tedious and become monotonous, but, as I've already stated, there is plenty of opportunity to move up for those that buy in and show dedication to improving their skill set. The benefits are solid, but the pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency is needed. At times the overall direction of the company, which is determined by C-level execs, is unclear. It seems like the method of remaining competitive is to just buyout the competition instead of fostering internal innovation.

    I have been working at RealPage (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of great opportunities to those who work hard and continuously want to be challenged and grow in their career. RealPage has provided a lot of opportunity for development and expand my overall experience. Every company is going to have a few Managers who are not in touch with their employees, but overall, I believe that the leaders at RealPage genuinely care about their employees and their work. Caring too much about the people and not about the productivity of their work does not create a good environment. It's about keeping a healthy balance.

    Cons

    RealPage should focus on the overall work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Judge employees based on each of their work ethics and not always a group as a whole. Reward your top performs!
