    Pros

    - Competitive benefits - Steady career advancement - Excellent community to be a part of - Exciting goals and challenges to tackle Rentpath is an excellent environment for ambitious, hard working professionals who want to make an impact. Participating in the effort to transform and win the rental space is extraordinarily rewarding when you know that your peers and management are all aligned with that goal in mind. It's easy to put in 100% when you know that you're part of an organization that's steadily moving toward achieving it's aims thanks in part to your efforts. The office feels like an organic community. Events that, at other companies, are often treated as team-bonding chores and enjoyed ironically at best seem to be genuinely enjoyed and eagerly anticipated by the people here. Everyone is supportive and interested in you both as an individual and as a coworker. There is never a shortage of healthy, guiltless snacks to keep you fueled throughout the day. Office movie nights are organized for essentially every film you'd want to see throughout the year and board game nights with pizza give you space to have fun in the office. Management is quick to recognize and reward hard work and talent. Managers will advocate for the members of their teams to ensure that everyone who wants it has the room and resources necessary to grow in the direction they want. Overall, an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    - Occasional long hours - Must adapt to frequent changes - Many ongoing projects Employees at Rentpath are not immune to the temptation to work extra long hours and it's not uncommon for more than one person to be in the office after 8:00 or 9:00. Free Lyft rides home from the office after 8:00 lessen the burden of a long night at work, though they do make it easier to succumb to the desire to spend all evening in the office. While Rentpath is flexible and it's easy to come in late or leave during the day if you have a doctor's appointment or another chore that needs to be completed during the week, working from home is usually an "if you need to" accommodation rather than an "if you want to" option for the San Francisco office, excepting a large remote engineering team. If you need to be at home for whatever reason, no one will ask twice about your absence for that day as long as you give everyone a heads-up, but it's expected you'll be in the office if you can. Management expects employees to strive for excellence, and settling for the status quo is discouraged. It's not uncommon to be promoted more than once in a year and have your responsibilities change more often than that, so for people looking for something routine and comfortable, a career at Rentpath may not be the best option.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advocate for employees throughout the organization and recognize excellence.

    I have been working at RentPath full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary/commission, decent benefits, lots of freedom as an outside sales rep as you get to work from home. Lots of support from corporate office.

    Cons

    Things change constantly. Always changing goals, products, processes, etc. which makes it hard to master the job. Lots of turnover lately as well.

    Advice to Management

    Give local reps more freedom to make decisions in their markets. And quit making everything a centralized account...we should be allowed to work with the big management companies locally as well...dont just leave us with the mom and pop clients with no money to spend.

    I have been working at RentPath (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home allows for more flexible scheduling; ready access to upper management; great training and education; best products in the industry. No charge backs to commission for customers who don't pay. Tax free auto allowance. Lots of contests and ways to win extra prizes, recognition, money.

    Cons

    Sales goals increased drastically with little notice & are very hard to achieve. In all fairness they were probably set too low before but could have landed somewhere in the middle.

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from sales team and sets goals that are almost unachievable.

    Advice to Management

    Act like you care more about employees even if you dont. Before I left I saw SEVERAL presdient club winners all leave the company within a 3 month span due to unjust commissions. Even the former CEO stepped down "to be with his family more."

    I worked at RentPath (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexible schedule and decent benefits

    Cons

    Poor company vision. Leadership at the top places undue pressure on midlevel management without offering the leadership necessary to achieve lofty goals. As a result, the organization constantly was in flux. Good people quit because they were in constant fear for their jobs, while the organization demanded compliance with ever changing rules.

    Advice to Management

    review the past handful of years and determine where you may have made mistakes. Yes you brought a lot of creative technology to the industry, but what was the price? Your people are your greatest assets.....not the cool ideas you bring to the marketplace. The marketplace sees that as a big weakness of Rentpath.
