Former Employee - Awful Place to Work in Carrollton, TX

I worked at RealPage

Pros

Cubes are large and have sliding doors
Relaxed dress code
Salary was within industry norm

Cons

-"Good ol' boys club" is the best way to describe management
-Management is demeaning and plays favorites
-Management does not understand the term "soft skills"
-Not flexible with scheduling - working from home is frowned upon
-Location is out in the middle of nowhere
-Expectation that you work 24/7
-Yearly user group which takes 2 months of planning and preparation, all while doing your "normal" duties; no time-off granted even though the user group begins on a Sunday
-Ridiculous amount of unnecessary meetings, leaving no time to do your "normal" duties
-Management does not understand the concept of work/personal balance
-Must take PTO for ice storm days versus working from home
-Market themselves as a software company yet no one in management has a true software background (they all come from property management). The one manager who had a software background was fired as he tried to improve the process which would have made others at his level look foolish
-People crying due to how management treats them is normal and something you see on a daily basis
-HR is not confidential
-If you don't come the property management sector, you are an outsider
-People do not respect one another
-Lots of bottom feeders that have been with the company for many years that do nothing and they have been prompted to positions they are not qualified for simply because of number of years they had been with the company
-Very unorganized
-7 days of PTO a year (plus standard holidays)
-Management uses intimidation as a way to get things done
-If you don't have PTO and you get sick, you are fired (no way to borrow PTO or have an unpaid sick day)
-Implemented a "must be to the office by 8am" rule in order to weed people out
-Poorly integrated products and constant bug fixing because the developer talent is the bottom of the bottom as all the smart ones start finding a way out the first day they are there
-Unable to retain talent as products are so bad (bug fixing, poor integration)

    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

    There are really no pros, well i guess it would be getting a hour lunch break...thats a pro

    Cons

    The supervisor that i had was ridiculus!!!!!! I wont mention the name but you may be able to figure out whom i am talking about since it was told to me when i first went HER pod.. Its like she would find reason to not give hundreds, you could have a perfect call and get the appointment and she would find some reason to not give a 100 and then wonder why her team is always on the bottom of QA scores, i dont like the one on one things it totally ridiculous, you feel like you are in grade school.
    Everyone just speads their sickness around the pods because God for bid if you call in you are fierd the next day you come in, i was not fierd by the way i quit.
    Real Page will say that they want you to be yourself on the phones but if you dont say this and that you are counted off for it, so no you can not be yourself.
    You have alot of management walking around doing absolutley nothing , thinkin they are funny but really just talking very loud so that we were not able to concentrate on our calls .
     Being timed on you breaks for 15 minutes and God forbid if you go over 15 minutes you are counted off on your ATS scores
    It was juat all too much for someone that has always been a spervisor and not used to being treated like you are 10 years old.
    The wer 13 people in my traing class and you know how many are left now ......3
    That should tell you something!!!!! HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET RID OF YOUR NEWEST SUPERVISOR , OR YOU WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP LOSING PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!
