    Pros

    Definitely the people. There is generally a caring attitude toward employees and clients alike. The products are varied enough to work with that there is no reason to ever get bored. The company is growing and you can make your own path in lot of ways. It is an easy, relaxed environment.

    Cons

    The company has grown quickly and many people have been promoted into management with no training or knowledge of doing their jobs. Promotions and salaries, as well as opportunities are not equal company-wide. If one office is expanding, then relatively new employees will be promoted and those in other offices are not given the opportunity to apply for those positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider management training and having company-wide expectations and opportunities. Some really good people are getting left behind because their untrained management does not recognize their abilities. The field of vision is too narrow. Upper management does not see or notice some of the lower level shining stars. There is definitely favoritism office to office. We're big enough now to put some real management practices into place and stop with the "seat of the pants" decisions. There is great talent to be tapped into if the right processes are allowed to happen.

    I have been working at Yardi Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a great team of supportive and bright people, the company embraces work-life balance. I don't go home stressed out about work, and in the mornings I'm happy to do work I enjoy. Directors show appreciation for the work that is done.

    Cons

    There is some disorganization between departments that comes from growing pains; the company has grown very quickly in the last decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    The people you work with are amazing. They seem to find fantastic, smart and energetic people. It's extremely family oriented, and places high importance on living an active lifestyle. There is a gym, and there is even a group who goes swimming in the ocean everyday at lunch! I have never felt pressured to do something out of my comfort zone, and the environment is very relaxed. The CEO is one of the most humble, intelligent, yet fiercely competitive people I have ever known.

    Cons

    The reviews about pay are true. You gain a great environment, but you do not get compensated nearly as much as other companies in the same industry. It is not a sales organization. They tend to not give raises, and the commission structure is not much to sing about. Like all sales positions, your criteria gets smaller each year, but you are expected to sell more, which is fine, but they need to understand that we still need to get paid enough to live in such an expensive city (for those of us in Santa Barbara). Internal communication is lacking, and yes, turnover is very high (probably due to low pay). Because of the high turnover rate, you wind up working with people who are not as trained as they should be (not their fault) and they don't stay long enough to get property trained (again, all because of they pay). The pay is honestly the cause of anything negative. Otherwise, this would be the best place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight to get higher salaries so you can keep the good people!

    Pros

    Laid back environment with little pressure. It's easy to feel like you have job security and they hire great people (for the most part). They like to find a position that is right for you, and will move you around until you find it. I feel like there is a lot of opportunity to work your way up.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible
    Benefits are nothing to write home about
    Internal communication is lacking
    They don't really care about their sales people
    They lack training
    Turnover is incredibly high
    They almost never give raises and make it nearly impossible to survive in the city their main office is in
    Their "Christmas bonus" is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees financially. If you care about work/life balance, you would pay them enough to actually enjoy life a little bit. Listen to the opinions of those around you and take a very good look at the company wide turnover, as it says a lot about a company.
