    Current Employee - Sales in Carrollton, TX

    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.

    Disillusioned.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    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.

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Developer III in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Various in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

    When 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.

    Cons

    RealPage 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 ManagementAdvice

    Compete! 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...

    Dysfunctional Company that has a couple pros but mostly cons

    Former Employee - Developer II  in  Carrollton, TX
    Former Employee - Developer II in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen, 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.

    Former Employee - Vice President  in  Carrollton, TX
    Former Employee - Vice President in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good equity compensation structure.

    Cons

    CEO 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 ManagementAdvice

    Empower 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.

    Pros

    Solid paycheck and nice people.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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