  1. Poor leadership that trickles down

    I have been working at RealPage

    Pros

    There are actually some really nice people at RealPage, and some are passionate and hard workers.

    If you work out of the Texas offices things are probably more stable for you.

    You might get lucky when it comes to compensation. Some new hires were compensated at market value.

    Cons

    We are known as "RealChange" internally. Unfortunately, this is in no way positive. Inability to commit to anything for over 6 months and poor leadership creates a revolving door in middle and upper management, which sabotages long term projects and goals.

    Horrible annual increases and deceptive salary incentives. I flat out did not receive a penny for the incentive program I agreed to.

    The fact that I had to really struggle to think of Pros is telling.

    Disclosure: I work out of one of the three remote offices that is closing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor leadership and office politics is sinking this ship.

    I have been working at RealPage

    Pros

    Competitive wages and benefits. Convenience to local restaurants. Discounts on local gyms. Fun coworkers.

    Cons

    Terrible management. I work in the marketing department and the Carrollton office. There are NO procedures, no one does what they're supposed to. The other departments/clients don't provide information/feedback on time and yet still expect us to meet their deadlines... No one communicates properly! The marketing department heads do what they want and dismiss others. They sit in discovery meetings, listening to what is needed and then go off and do something completely different. If addition, everything is an emergency. Leading to a lot of unneeded overtime. The VP treats everyone (besides his direct reports) Luke they are beneath him.

    Lastly, they offer stock both as reward/ compensation and also for sale. It is worthless. Most of it is given at an over inflated value and is under water.

    Finally, RealPage claims that they offer growth opportunities. In the years I've been there I've only seen a couple people realize that in my department. The reality, as i see it is, they put you where they want you and leave you there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all of the management at RealPage is bad, but there needs to be someone that takes a very serious look at all of the management at RealPage, review them individually, interview their staff and take serious measures to make big changes in that company. Otherwise stock prices are going to continue to fall.

    Pros

    People are fantastic. I work out of the SF office and the culture is like family. We all want to chip in a help each other out.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the main office located in Texas doesn't exactly follow the culture set here in the Bay Area. A lot of finger point when something goes wrong instead of the solution that is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct management is good, but beyond the layers of higher management is very disconnected from the actually people who do the work.

    Pros

    Job security, some good managers exist, work is not demanding.

    Cons

    Executive management has gone to hell, no one on the Board knows how to run a 21st century tech outfit. Incompetence throughout corporate leadership. Compensation goes nowhere. Few exceptional employees exist, lots of mediocrity. Employee feedback to upper-management is nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete house cleaning needed at executive level, which won't happen until the CEO is (forced) out. Best case scenario is company treads water until then.

    Pros

    Had potential to be a great company. Smart people to work with in its prime.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management and executive team. No vision for any future. Will completely implode from the inside out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a complete revamp of who is making decisions. The thought of moving your company from the most booming tech space (san francisco) to Texas is the dumbest move you could ever make. You are a tech company and you have lost all your good people due to the oversight of management moving to departments they have no idea about. Yes, I am a former employee and yes, I am disgruntled. Watching a product get completely wasted away by decisions of Texas in which they have no idea about is absolutely ridiculous. Having teams report to people with no background in the subject is just plain bad business. That is a recipe for failure. Marketing a product is not just trying to keep clients happy, but bettering the products and understanding how to create better opportunities. Stupid moves by closing the SF office and lying about it for many months. Good luck, I wouldn't purchase any marketing products or any products at all if I were a client. Check out the stock prices, no wonder it just keeps plummeting!

    Not a stable company

    Pros

    Met some great people here and the office is nice- too bad we are getting laid off and this nice office will go to waste

    Cons

    They recently closed their San Francisco, Chicago and Westlake Village offices and laid off staff with no recognition of time served or quality of work, so be prepared for possible future layoffs. Upper management shifts and changes direction constantly so it's difficult to have any enthusiasm or take any new processes/ideas seriously. Management plays favorites and you may be a great employee and a hard worker but you can be screwed over for promotions/raises. Company doesn't pay a competitive salary.

    Pros

    Great co workers. Everyone in my team from the designers, front end guys, backend and mobile, were all passionate about what they did and very skilled.

    Benefits department and tech help desk were very responsive to questions and tickets. Very accommodating and quick to respond.

    Cons

    Upper management has zero idea how to move in the industry. Zero development on new products, and what new development that does happen is either on products that are absolutely terrible from inception, or make current products worse.

    Actively fights new development. Very resistant to change and almost all of our products have code bases going on 10+ years. We still use Java Server Pages on one of our flagship products.

    Aquires startups only to shut them down months later. Wastes money on acquisitions they don't do anything with, then has no money left over to internally develop anything.

    Shut down all offices outside of Dallas with zero warning. We had to be out two weeks after the announcement. No severance!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your devs. You can't keep treading water and expect to survive. Way too much politiking between C level employees that actively sabatoge each other's initiatives.

    Pros

    I had the pleasure to work at RealPage's San Francisco office. RealPage had made a number of acquisitions in San Francisco and put together a great office space in SOMA . There was a great diversity of teams, projects and tech stacks which made it fun and interesting.

    Cons

    RealPage was mostly unable to integrate the San Francisco's office start up culture to it's more traditional corporate culture. In the end it became a big divide which drove many people out.

    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.
