    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.

    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 for 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.

    Pros

    Fantastic, friendly and talented people work there. The sometimes lunches were a nice perk but not enough to outweigh some of the problems

    Cons

    There is a rot under the surface of the company that isn't readily apparent when you first get there but after about 3-6 months, you'll want to run. Management is embarrassingly out of touch not only with the products we create, but the processes by which they create them and no amount of offering to show them seems to make a difference. Managers tend to be friends who take care of one another over anyone else. There is no safe place to air a concern about a bosses performance because they all talk and support one another. Employees tend to feel trapped as a result and cannot move to different departments if they want to expand their skills because of this. If management doesn't like you, they will find a reason to set you out the door, even if you are doing nothing wrong. There is a constant fear of being walked out of the building with no explanation or notice. Work and development plans don't seem to exist here and promotions when the come seem arbitrary. If you need a paycheck and some line items on your resume, come here, get them quickly and get out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do everyone a favor and resign. Fire bad managers even if they are your pals. The business is suffering because of this.

    I have been working at RentPath full-time for 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.

    I worked at RentPath full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people! I made some of my best friends there. Base was adequate, but the potential for commission was great. While I was there, they were very generous with time off and personal time, but I do know that things have been changing. Bob Clouser is an excellent and supportive manager. Would love to work with him again in the future.

    Cons

    Where to begin? First, the "cube city" that you work in is difficult Being so close together is hard when certain people are loud or disruptive. Way too many meetings all the time. Beginning to feel like we were being micromanaged by the time I left. Goals set unreasonably high. Even when 90% of the team falls short of the goals, they refused to change them or acknowledge that they were too high. Training was subpar for the team I was on. They definitely had a "favorite" team and it showed by how many resources they poured into them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your teams. When they repeatedly say that the bar is set too high, consider doing something about it. Treat employees like adults and they will act like it.
