    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
