    Pros

    Smart leadership into performance and open communication. Minimal fiefdoms and true spirit of collaboration. Very metrics drive, into driving technology and maintaining industry leadership position.

    Cons

    People don't seem to want to push back too much. Not becuse of repercussions but out of desire to please. But sometimes you need to say no. Corp culture.could use some more organized fun. Teams all have good sense of humor but very few company wide opportunities to bond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some corp sponsored fun!

    I worked at RentPath full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers from various backgrounds trying to make a career at RentPath.

    Cons

    Very bad atmosphere, morale and culture. I worked here 3 years and the turnover was unbelievable. I chose RentPath to be my last stop and finish my career, but unfortunately had to move on.

    OMG ...the DROPS! If interviewing for a sales position ..ask about "drops." They don't tell you about them up front. You get a book of business upfront , but if an advertiser "drops" for any reason (sells out, management change, bad service, etc), then the salesperson has to "cover the drop." So, now, they not only have to make their monthly quota, but now also cover the drop, to make your full commission ...even if you didn't sell them ...even if the company had been getting paid on the account for years. You can't make money playing "catchup to drops".

    I met some very good sales people that could make sales, and exceed sales goals by double ...even triple ...but still didn't make any money trying to catch the monthly drops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make the insides sales team a "call center" just to pump up call (KPI) numbers. Employees don't like to make "fake calls" just to have a call show as made. They want to learn about the customer, their needs and values. Value the employees that you have and learn how to retain them, maintain them, develop them and reward them ...so they stay with the company. Turnover has got to be costing the company so much time and money lost.

    Pros

    Good people. Stimulating work. Not a lot of red tape or politics. This is a great place to work if you are the type of person who cares about what you do.

    Cons

    Sometime managment jumps the gun on something before it is ready to go. I understand the need to quickly react, but sometimes a day or two of planning will save weeks of headaches and missteps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Keep those lines of communication open.

    Pros

    Work from home, quarterly hackathons, 10% day (hack on things your interested in that could be useful to the company). Company is at the top of their game has a very talented staff in a very serious market.

    Cons

    I've encountered some communication barriers here or there, but nothing you wouldn't find anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep meetings short(er)

    Pros

    The company is the leader in the industry and is owned by an investment group that shows interest in growth.

    Cons

    Salary is a bit under industry standard. Departments work in silos which can make it difficult to work on larger projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries need to be researched to ensure they are up with industry standards.

    I worked at RentPath full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some passionate, amazing people. I was given ample opportunity to take on challenges and was in charge of my career path.

    Cons

    The company lacks vision and leadership. The CEO consistently looks for "good", not "great". They don't walk their talk about products, employees - anything! One upper manager in the technology dept is a megalomaniac and essentially runs the company. Company holds on to bad employees too long and lets the good ones go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dominating the space through acquisition may be helpful in the short term. But seriously - focus on quality and "great" - that is how you will make your legacy.

    I have been working at RentPath full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my coworkers... devs, qa, etc. We enjoy spending time with each other and respect each others skills.
    I love my immediate manager... he's great at keeping a good work/life balance and contributes to the great work environment.
    Casual, open work environment... there are no cubes for developers. It's definitely not for everyone, but it works for me.

    Cons

    Though I love my immediate manager, the people above him... not so much. Once their mind is made up about you, there's no changing it, no matter how good (or bad) of a job you do.
    For some reason, there has been a big resistance to expanding the work from home policy for certain teams.
    Employees don't really seem to be valued by management. They may say that we're important, but their actions say otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's value to having employees who have been around for a while. While it's great to have new people to provide new perspectives, the "old people" possess a lot of "tribal knowledge" and have a knowledge of the system and business processes that a team of consultants and contractors that turns over every couple of months just isn't going to have. You need to make your employees feel valued before they decide to jump ship and take their knowledge and skills with them.
