    I have been working at RealPage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not the worst job in the world. I've met some decent people.

    Cons

    Bad benefits that have absolutely no administration. Very poor culture and morale. Leadership was placed in position based on politics and personality rather than skill. Incredibly micro-managed -- the CEO has to approve everything. No strategic direction. Unclear job roles. Outdated work method of sitting at desk all day rather than telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to take this company into the future, you should get rid of legacy employees and managers and find people who know what they are doing.

    I worked at RealPage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - seems to be a company that is respected in the multifamily industry
    - peer employees are easy to get along with and are very helpful

    Cons

    - being micromanaged
    - some departments are understaffed, some employees/managers very overworked
    - at one point, employees were asked to submit schedules of all the tasks they performed (by the hour)

    Also, a large number of recruiters have mentioned that there is very much a revolving door with this company - 2 have asked this exact question "oh did they have another reorg?"

    Pros

    The environment is very nice - equipment was new and clean as well as the facilities. Upper management was very friendly. Extensive but rigorous training - like boot camp

    Cons

    Say goodbye to any requested time off and hello to infractions! They have a rigid infraction program that they use to keep you from increasing $ and making bonus - if that does not work then they will change the rule for the day so you fail a shop and miss your increase/bonus. Then they have unpaid "classes" to help you move up - once you pass the class then you have to wait for another 3 month without 1 infraction to be eligible to increase. No matter how many times you come in early or on your day off - there is no pay back - if your late 1 minute...guess what?...infraction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's called compassion I think. You need to realize you are working with PEOPLE not inanimate objects or computers. It's great to have a company run like a well oiled machine - but don't forget the oil (people) - and they won't lose their cheese ) Your own worst enemy is you - the turnover is the way it is because of you and there is no loyalty because of you. It would not be a bad place to work but you make an easy job difficult to endure and for no reason

    Real Page is a public company being managed with little or no communication to those that manage the processes.

    Pros

    Benefits - several positive changes made in 2012.
    Office surroundings help deal with the negatives with the company
    Easy access to company campus

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    'Ivory tower' mentality and not willing to listen to innovations
    Senior managment not in tune with lower management
    Senior management looses its creditblity when promises/assurances are made and not delivered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at Senior management as a comparison to well run organizations and make changes accordingly
    Hire an outside firm to assess the ability of Senior management to take Real Page to the next level as a public company.

    Pros

    Some great people
    Fantastic clients
    The idea of a great product offering
    My direct VP was amazing, but that is not common there.

    Cons

    Executive leadership is more disappointing than anything.
    LONG days, no work/ life balance.
    So many current employees are unhappy- I hate to hear great people who can accomplish superb work being let down by the company they work so hard for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes. Stop walking around the sales floor with a smirk on your face asking your team "Have I told ya your doin' a good job today?". It's annoying. Big time.

    Pros

    Good entry level place to start to gain experience in what not to do. Can move up in ranks if you can stick it out.

    Cons

    Management does not care about employees
    Good employees don't stay around very long
    Each division operates on its own very little coordination and communication between groups
    Outdated technology
    Restricted enviroment

    Initially seems great place to work, then you find out no work/life balance or fairness in career opportunities.

    Pros

    It's not so big that no one knows you. It offers employees opportunities to have fun.

    Career opportunities are not fairly given. There is a mean spirit toward employees in management.

    Pros

    Decent location of office if needing to travel from North Dallas, Frisco or Plano area. If you like busy work there will be plenty with the amount of poorly written cobbled together software. So much buggy integration between aqcuired companies that good developers will have an infinite amount of work trying to untangle, providing some job security.

    Cons

    This is a sweat shop for developers. They care about selling before anyhting else. Frequently promising customers solutions that don't exist and never follow through. Pay is all over the board with terrible people making more than good. Frequent beligerent vocabulary used in meetings by executives/management. Rewards are given to people who are frequently treat their teams the worst. It is a get your numbers no matter who you step on kind of place. Terrible leadership and even worse communication between the product groups. Company has a ton of debt and poorly retains good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A serious look at the balance between the quantity of development and the quality of development of the software needs to happen. I have never seen a more disrepectfull and vulgar senior management team in a company who is trying to be legititmate. Please take an objective look at yourselves.

    Pros

    Relationships with customers, I met some great people who use the products.

    Some very nice people work at RealPage. A lot of great people have also left.

    Cons

    Inept management. I have never seen a company so obsessed with finding people who cannot do their job, then promoting them into a management position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. You don't need a chain of 6 management types over a department that only has 8 employees. You also need to define management roles better. Pick one person to be a manager, not two or three. This will eliminate confusion over the question of "Who exactly do I report to?"
