    Pros

    Meet people
    Easy Job
    Amazing Training program

    Cons

    EXTREMELY INCONSISTENT hours
    Annual retention rate less than 12%
    Easy leads to Routine/Tedious to the point of insanity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had four to five ideas on how to make the company more efficient, since my graduate degree involves such studies. But never got to the point where anyone would listen. THE RETENTION RATE HAS TO BE FIXED. The training grant that you guys use won't last forever.

    Pros

    There's a lot of talent in San Francisco; great collaboration and great ideas are realized

    Cons

    The team in SF (responsible for all SaaS marketing solutions) is very undervalued, and great talent is walking out the door weekly to pursue opportunities where their suggestions and potential can be realized (over the past 6 months, 3 SEO/SEM editors, 4 web developers, 2 product managers, and an entire website division has quit/been laid off). We also have a Chicago office that lost 90% of employees earlier in the year. The executives in Texas are completely out of touch with the importance of valuing employees, and it takes far too many people's stamps of approval before a project/idea is green-lit. Lastly, compensation is more aligned with Texas wages, and it's incredibly difficult to get a substantial raise, as we tend to hire outside at a high salary rather than promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't run a company this large with a small group of decision makers. Also, client feedback is incredibly important; don't ignore it.

    Former Employee - Executive in Carrollton, TX

    I worked at RealPage full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are a few really good people on the management team. The offices are well appointed and there are plenty of resources available.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top Schizophrenic, clubby, and very cut-throat. The products are so outdated that they require 100's of hours of work and testing just to add minor features. Nobody has a big picture vision on how to digest all of the companies they purchased over last 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove yourself from equation and bring in some professional managers who know how to run a software company.

    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

    Good Christian company with quality people and great work environment on a beutiful campus.

    Cons

    People are hired based on their connections and religeous beliefs which is great but too many of the key positions are filled by unqualified individuals. The staff mistake activity for productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking to hire from outside the company instead of promoting internal candidates that are unqualified.

    I worked at RealPage

    Pros

    Paid competitively. Flexible work hours and OOO.

    Cons

    Treated 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 ManagementAdvice

    Trust and verify.

    Pros

    standard benefits available in the bay area.

    Cons

    Senior 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 ManagementAdvice

    If 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.
