    Pros

    Nice office in the SOMA.

    Cons

    Their benefits are a joke. At least by San Francisco standards.
    They grant you 2 weeks of vacation per year. I think it is difficult to find a company in SF
    that would give you less than 3 weeks, 4 is the new standard. And the startups usually
    offer unlimited vacation.

    But there is more: you cannot use your vacation until you accrue it. So you want to take full week
    you have to wait to July. I had never heard about companies with such a policy,
    so I didn't bother to check the HR manual before I joined.

    But there is more: until last year, you didn't accrue any vacation during the first 3 months of employment.
    Because having to pay somebody for 2.5 days will make a different in company financials.
    Eventually they realized that that was putting them in the 18th century, so they got rid it this policy.

    I have to admit though that the middle management is quite reasonable and doesn't take the "accrue before use" policy seriously, which is why people still work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the person who writes "we offer generous vacation policy" in the job postings.

    Former Employee - Developer IV in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

    Negotiate well your salary going in. You will likely get it if you are a mover and a player in your chosen profession.

    Cons

    Behind the technology curve - they toss around terms like technology debt and wear it like a badge of honor.
    Too much development - when the pros have already made something OOB to take care of many of the problems RP has in its enterprise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let up off the gas and fix your infrastructure. There would be more gains by solving common issues that have been solved out of the box by other companies so that RP doesn't have to reinvent the wheel each time it has a problem. It waste lots of development time.
    People who are in leadership must rely more on the people on their teams. There are no solo acts on a team, and middle management for the most part are all about themselves and not about building teams.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good equity compensation structure.

    Cons

    CEO changes direction frequently and rules with an iron first. Senior management team changes almost annually, Technology is outdated technology, products are stale, no investment in modernizing, too many acquisitions poorly integrated and envisioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower people to do their job, invest in getting out of 1999 web technology, make the products work better together. Stop buying revenue and focus on making what you have better so your sales reps can sell more of it.

    Dysfunctional Company that has a couple pros but mostly cons

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Developer II  in  Carrollton, TX
    Former Employee - Developer II in Carrollton, TX

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, flexible hours in SOME departments (depending on your supervisor).

    Cons

    No opportunities to move up the ladder even something like from Dev 2 to Dev 3.

    90% of new hires are coming from the Philippines. There is a high turnover rate of developers.

    Developers in the US are forced to work early mornings and nights with the overseas people on a regular basis (anywhere from 2 days to 4 days a week is my experience).

    There is little production support from operations, with many issues coming directly to developers from the customers. This is mixed, some products have more support than others.

    WAY to much management, very top heavy company. This company really needs more developers and business analysts to support products.

    Very little employee appreciation shown through any sort of perks. Gym membership ($25 dollar monthly value) is the biggest...

    Technology being used is pretty old, Realpage needs to bite the bullet and rebuild many things from scratch.

    This company acquires several companies a year rather than build products from scratch but integrates them poorly. What ends up happening is that each individual company ends up working in a vacuum doing whatever they were doing before. Every once in a while there is push to integrate this product or that product with another (usually because clients complain), but these rarely go anywhere because there is no will or leadership to make it happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, and I mean REALLY listen AND implement employee suggestions. Get all senior developers from each team into a room and have them brainstorm ideas for integration their products and bringing more value to customers.

    Developers REALLY enjoy this sort of thing and this might inspire some great technology because a developer who created an idea is a developer who will work hard to implement it.

    Pros

    Work environment is very relaxed, coworkers are great, excellent managers, always some interesting things to be working on, lots of new opportunities to be involved with depending on abilities

    Cons

    Benefits aplenty but salary is comparably low for the SF tech sector, this is troubling because I may be leaving soon because the compensation disparity is becoming glaringly apparent for what I could get elsewhere in the same position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boost compensation or there will be some major turnover in 2014.
