  1. There really is no comparison of RealManage against ANY other HOA management company.

    Pros

    Executives listen! People are NICE! They will not overload you with work. There is flexibility when it comes to family or other special circumstances.

    Cons

    None. This is a great place to work. It truly becomes your extended family because everyone cares.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with your focus and processes.

    Pros

    This is the most encouraging bunch of people I have ever worked with and it is refreshing that a company will continuously praise you instead of only looking for your faults. The technology that we work with is amazing and makes my job so much easier. I have been in this industry for over fourteen (14) years and I have never felt more appreciated as I do with RealManage.

    Cons

    There is not really anything that I have encountered at RealManage that I would consider a con to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It seems to be working because our company is expanding by leaps and bounds.

    Pros

    If you want to be a part of something special and a company that has a platform far greater than the industry standard this is the place. Leadership believes you are either getting better or worse and they strive to improve daily.

    Cons

    Not a place to work unless you are committed to excellence

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going

    Pros

    The pay was very competitive.

    Cons

    There is a very clear disconnect between the corporate office and the field offices. The corporate office did not fully understand the ins and outs of managing HOA's, however they set mandates that individual association managers in the field offices had to abide by. Association managers, thus, felt like errand boys/girls, not able to actually manage their associations. HOA's require flexibility, and RM corporate did not provide that flexibility. It was no wonder so many associations chose to do business elsewhere. The turnover in both associations and employees was unreal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire credentialed managers, then trust them to do their jobs. That will be the key to your success. Stop with the micromanaging, or the good managers, like myself, will leave.

    Pros

    Some leaders are strong. Many are not.

    Cons

    RM (now CiraConnect) lost clients as fast as it signed them thus there was no real growth and no real chance to advance. Low pay is typical for the industry. Management sometimes runs the company in devious ways.

    Advice to Management

    Pay well the people you want to keep and prune the underperformers often.

    Pros

    Growth Potential - If you are serious about doing your job well, you will find career growth. Hard work is appreciated and rewarded! You don't find that everywhere.
    Relaxed Environment - No micro-managers here. Everyone is treated professionally and allowed to take ownership of their responsibilities.
    Flexibility - Management is very fair and understanding.

    Cons

    Small Margin for Error - Because of the industry, high expectations are inherent. For some, this can be stressful and for others it motivates them to strive for excellence. In either case, it can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage positivity among staff and overcome stressful situations.

    Pros

    Their technology is really impressive; a potential game-changer in a pathetic industry.

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue in dealing with personnel issues. They've managed to assemble a highly intelligent management team with zero emotional intelligence. Most have difficultly even conversing with employees. Mid management quality deteriorates annually. Without their technology, they wouldn't last 15 minutes even in this weak industry.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get out of their offices and actually talk to their employees.

    Good place to learn, but management and advancement opportunities with other companies make you want to leave quick.

    Pros

    Decent Salary
    Good place to learn
    Great CEO in Chris O'Neil

    Cons

    Management doesn't want you using your PTO
    Management tends to be disrespectful
    You will most likely not like the people you are working with
    Management doesn't have a great way of coaching people to get better in their areas of weakness

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work with people
    Be more open, stop hiding behind doors.

    Pros

    Excellent technology. Senior Mangement and executives listen when you have conversations with them. Training is limitless. You look for it and the information as to how to do your job and you can become a vital part of the organization.

    Cons

    Needs more PTO and better health insurance.
    RealManage trains and retrains but some people do not get their job functions. Almost waiting too long to terminate an employee. By the time a year comes around then more damage is done rather than good. It is a fine line and RealManage does do the best that they can.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing you are doing an amazing job!
