    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!

    It is a good job to have for flexibility but there is typical corporate nonsense to deal with.

    Pros

    They're a leader in the multi-family industry and have deeply invested in promoting their business to keep it that way. Their reporting and tracking system is some of the best I've ever worked with. They track all of their advertising and can prove they have an overall better ROI and CPM.

    Cons

    They have an awkward commission structure and it never resets itself so you can never have a bad month. I recently went out on maternity leave for 3 months due to a hard pregnancy. When I left I was at 100% to my goal, but when I got back I discovered no one had worked my market and my numbers dipped down to 80%. Upon returning they told me I had 1 month to turn it around - which isn't even realistically possible in that time frame. In addition, the company caps your commission opportunity. And for whatever reason they tend to hire upper management from outside of the organization so there's not a lot of opportunity for upward movement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do believe they hire their Senior Managers from within and I've always been impressed with their expertise. However, they also need to hire their Market Sales Managers from within the company so they understand the industry and needs of their representatives and our clients. Be compassionate to your employees and try not to look at them as "just a number." Set reasonable goals for the market and your team as a whole. I also believe AG needs more competitive pricing.

    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.

    I worked at RentPath full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are a few great people and you get some work from home. There is great potential to advance quickly due to excessive turnover if you are willing to sacrifice your self respect.

    Cons

    The worst work experience of my life. Borders on abusive. Executives are only interested in short term gain so they can cash out options when the company is sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice short of firing everyone in engineering and starting over. It really does not seem fixable.

    I worked at RentPath full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I spent more than 10 years with this company, I loved the products that I sold and the clients! I truly loved my job, until my manager made my working environment unbearable.

    Cons

    I had the absolute worst manager! She was a narcissistic bully micro manager. She would cuss at me, talk down to me and threaten me with my job every chance she could. The company doesn't care how employees are treated just as long as they are producing. I was a strong producer for 10 plus years and she still won!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that you really look deeper into how the employees are treated by the MSMs. This could really end badly for the company...lawsuits. Nobody deserves to be treated the way that I was as well as several other employees that I witnessed being bullied and cussed at. Ridiculous.

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

    Pros

    Work from home makes the job a little more tolerable. I enjoyed working with my co-worker. I say co-worker because when I started 3 years ago we had 7 people in my office and there where only two when I left. And now one.
     If you work as a sales trainer you have real good job security because this company has around 600 employees and has gone through over 1,200 in the last two years.
    The benefits are OK.
    Decent products but Zillow and Trulia will crush them, and the rest of the industry, when the merger is finished.

    Cons

    Turnover is over 100 percent a year. Extremely high, even for a sales organization.
    The commission plan for sales people resets every year. This is OK if you have a bad year(providing they haven't fired you, remember over 100 turnover a year). But if you have a good year they roll all your sales into your next years goal but don't pay you an extra dime.
    Way, way too much work for a Sales Executive. The company has almost no support for the sale staff. Sales people end up doing everything from building ads to on-boarding customers.
    My Director was incompetent and smarmy . He was never in management before RentPath and they promoted him twice. He is the only sucker that would take the postilion.
    The CEO is a great bean counter but not much of a leader. In three years he addressed the whole organization 3 times.
    The President is a megalomaniac that is more concerned about preserving her power that generating business. She personally has to approve any discounts on contracts in an organization of over 600.
    This company is based in Atlanta so their is plantation vibe all around.
    Almost no minority working outside of the "home office" or in management. I am just saying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A change in upper leadership is needed.
    Treat the employees like human being instead of surfs of the Kingdom.

    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.
