    I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere.
    Nice workspace.
    Decent work/life balance but it all depends on your manager and group. There are some really terrible managers that play favorites, politic constantly, talk behind everyone's backs and only worry about making themselves look good. They rule by fear.
    There are some managers that really care about the employees and growing them professionally. They lead by example and want you to have a life outside of work. The groups/departments are drastically different.
    If you are lucky enough to land in a good group with a quality manager that wants you to succeed, hang on! They do exist.

    Cons

    Decent pay if you're coming off the street. Transferring within the company, ridiculous. Promotions don't mean you can make what your peers are making for the same job or the offer you'd have if you were an outside candidate. It means an increase that has to be approved by 10 people and probably won't get you anywhere near where it should.
    The company has a lot of growth and you can almost do nothing and keep your job. That being said, new positions are only added in India and the Philippines but the tasks assigned to them is embarrassing. Most of my peers in India have 10 more years of education or experience or both but they are given the tasks that a high school student could accomplish. They should be utilized more or they'll be bored and leave.
    Management is so top heavy!! And they reorganize the groups every 30 days or so! I know people who don't even know who they report to.

    I worked at RealPage for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers, casual environment, okay pay & benefits.

    Cons

    No work balance, management talks behind your back to other managers & your peers. EXTREMELY Long hours, high turnover rate in most departments. HR does not know the meaning of Privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more & take the advice of your employees. You are not the only ones that want the company to succeed

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment and colleagues, robust suite of products and services for the target markets, steady growth, clear bonus metrics (although some are out of the control of the individual), flexible work arrangements, tight but not oppressive travel policies, an openness to new ideas, at least at the department operations level.

    Cons

    Communication from executives about strategy and changes is very guarded until moments before it is implemented, leaving employees no opportunity to provide feedback before new policies, structures and approaches are implemented. Advancement and growth opportunities are stifled by absent career path definition, cost controls, and the suspicion that there are backdoor deals between executives to keep employees where it is most convenient for those executives rather than allow them to pursue roles that grow them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to develop a succession plan, and long term employee loyalty, you must do better at using the quarterly and annual review process to outline career paths and opportunities for employees, you must improve communication (take that as a general and universal suggestion across all areas) and strive for as much transparency as possible when structural changes are made.

    Current Employee - 3D Animator in Carrollton, TX

    I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Room to grow, and people to learn from are everywhere. I always know whats expected of me and more importantly I feel the desire to exceed those expectations at all times. People above me listen to me and my feedback is used almost all the time.

    Good medical and dental benefits

    Tuition and gym reimbursement after a time period

    Casual dress code

    Great location

    Cons

    Cant say Ive experienced as much company culture in my one year working here as I have at other places, probably due to the corporate atmosphere, or that most of my department is out of state.

    Parking is bad sometimes

    Bathrooms are too few and small and could use music. Pretty awkward being in a crowded silent bathroom waiting in line.

    Could use a cafeteria and or nicer break rooms for having lunch on site.

    Pros

    The employees here are very talented and there are many opportunities for advancement. This is a very stable job with good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    The culture is NOT like most tech companies in the bay area. If you are looking for a cool tech vibe, this is not the place. They do not go over and above to show their employees appreciation.

    Pros

    Almost to a person, the work force is smart, tough, efficient. All seem result driven and incentive driven. Fast, fast work pace. Not for for the feint of heart. If you thrive under pressure a great place.

    Cons

    The management of the company has improved, but had been far removed from the operation of the business. Lower level employees, for the most part, knew what was happening and kept the wheels on the bus. That has changed stron leadership on board now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have smart managers. Empower them to do their jobs and innovate. Delegate greater authority from the top.

    Pros

    All of the resources you could ever need. Knowledgeable support, great people. Sales team is very interactive and fun. Can be gossipy as any office can. Seems there are a lot of married people within the company that met there.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals, egotistical management, good olé boys atmosphere (performance will get you nowhere if they don't like you) Its a call center. As simply put as can be its an outbound call center. Phone sales all day. If you don't want to do that then don't apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great! They are supportive, fun, helpful and knowledgeable.
