    Pros

    Easy work environment, casual attire, no one overlooking your shoulder making sure you are doing your job.

    Cons

    They hire people who they think will stay here forever and not complain. No follow through on positions they open up for promotion. Poor execution and roll out of changes in processes. No incentives. No employee development. Poor outlook for career advancement. Poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on things. Execute change better. Offer incentives so that people will want to be more productive.

    Pros

    Great life to work balance
    Work isn't too difficult
    Great co-workers
    PTO - 15 days off

    Cons

    Some issues that exist with PE to Yardi take over, and they just need to be ironed out fully.
    Exercise more transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key.

    Pros

    1. You'll work alongside some great colleagues.
    2. Management is very lenient with the PTO policy.
    3. Benefits are great.
    4. No Micro-management or at least on my team, we were never micro-managed.
    5. Location is in a great part of Atlanta - Roswell/Alpharetta area.
    6. My team lead was great and was always there for me.
    7. You'll learn a lot of different things here. These include SQL, Accounting, etc. just to name a few.
    8. 99% of the clients that you'll work with are great people. You can have some entertaining and hilarious conversations with the client while trying to fix their issue over the phone.
    9. The dress code is great. You don't have to come in, in business attire. You can wear jeans throughout the week. You can even wear shorts with flip-flops and a t-shirt.
    10. Yardi is a great place to learn about software/tech/property management/accounting. If you decide to move on from Yardi after a few years, these skills will be highly valued on the job market.

    Cons

    1. The Pay. For the work and the volume of work that you do, they don't compensate you adequately.
    2. Communication between teams. I had a difficult time grasping that a company of this size and with the resources it has available, it could not develop an internal communication system. Microsoft Lync, email, phone calls between people on different teams doesn't work.
    3. There isn't a whole lot of upward mobility. You and your colleagues aren't going to get promoted unless a current manager vacates their seat.

    Advice to Management

    I worked out of the Atlanta office for two years. I enjoyed it and loved it. I probably could have stayed for 30 years and retired if I was paid more. I didn't care about being bumped up to Senior Applications Specialist. I didn't even care about being promoted to a management position. In fact, I probably would have turned it down if offered a promotion to a management position. Inadequate pay was 99% of the reason why I left after two years.

    You need to recognize who your "heavy hitters" are. And you will need to compensate them more if you want them to stay.

    Pros

    Yardi is a large organization that offers stable employment. The company continues to grow its products and expand into new markets. Those willing to drink from the company Kool-Aid will be employed as long as they desire.

    Cons

    Salaries are well below average and do not reflect the employee's duties and cost of living. I believe it's because the company can afford to underpay employees who want to live in Santa Barbara. Employees are promoted to management without management training. Thus, management is inconsistent and amateurish. And there's no way to know you've got a good manager until you start working.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they're worth. Be consistent with company wide policies and do not allow management to change policies at whim. Provide training for new management.

    Pros

    Somehow they have attracted some really nice and generally intelligent people

    Cons

    to work for them for next to nothing. This is tech and their wages are equal to what you get paid as an intern at a startup, it's laughable. That combined with the fact that this company is in Santa Barbara which is in the top 10 for most expensive places in the entire universe - you'll find yourself living in a 2000 dollar a month 1 bedroom apartment trying to figure out how to stop living paycheck to paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Pay within range of any tech company.
