    Pros

    Job Security, Integrity, Good Product

    Cons

    Company does not appreciate salespeople. Have product sells itself mentality to a detrimental degree. Self fulfilling prophecy since the compensation is not enough to attract and retain top sales talent. Poor salary, poor sales management, poor tools, small sales opportunity, no camaraderie or sales culture. Low energy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in fresh sales management blood and build an energetic culture. Create a culture like most software companies and market yourself with more flash. Get a real CRM system.

    Pros

    After being employed by Yardi Systems for 13 months, I can say my personal experience with the company has been completely positive. Loyalty and hard work are recognized and rewarded. The first year can be frustrating until you begin to get a firm handle on the software, its functionality and capability. The more you learn, the more there is to learn, so the challenge stays fresh. Being able to multi-task and perform at a high level will earn you additional monetary compensation, almost a 17% increase in one year for myself. If you see other reviews that are negative I would first question the work ethic of the poster and get a good feel for their personal sense of entitlement, some of the newer folks coming out of college think they should be making 85k the second year. Yardi in my experience has been a place that rewards hard work and you absolutely can't beat the laid back atmosphere and dress code. Join Yardi and work hard / play hard, very rewarding experience. I have seen many people promoted in the past year, at least in Raleigh it seems to be the performers who have been rewarded.

    Cons

    The company has grown so quickly that many things where standardization would be a benefit suffer due to its lack, however, it is apparent that in most area's this is a known issue and being addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuing with awarding performers will insure the company's growth and competence.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere. Great people to work with. Very helpful. Your position is fairly secure if you're doing your job. No layoffs.

    Cons

    Internal positions that become available are not published so that current employees can apply for them. Management just picks who they want to be a Team Leader or Manager. Still some of that good old boy click going on. If you don't advance up the ladder, your salary is not in line with the work that you have to do. If an opportunity came my way I can't say that I'd be loyal to the company and would stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more in tune with the workers on the front with the clients versus taking advice from Managers. Communication within the company needs to be better. And the salary levels needs to be raised. Since we are green, should consider letting employees work from home a portion of the week.

    Pros

    Lax work hours, great location, positive people, great benefits. Lots of food truck options and very close to the beach.

    Cons

    Terrible pay - lowest in the industry. Yearly reviews are nice, but offer only 3%-8% raise potential. Disorganized management and very high turn-over makes for inefficient work flow since no one really knows what's going on with the overly complex products. In-office training is a great idea, but needs much development. Market saturation is the focus and the products are often patched later - quality of products is concerningly low. Systems in use depend on very outdated web browsers (IE 9). Clients are often confused as to what's going on with Yardi as employees leave due to financial strain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure where to start... Santa Barbara is a great place to live, but it is expensive and paying your employees bottom rung salaries is a sure-fire way to make sure you keep hiring and training new people therefore making for a "rookie" like standard that frustrates clients across the board.
    Focusing on quality products that integrate well witih current browsers should be the focus, not market saturation - why not build something that employees can be proud to support?

    Pros

    With a great location, an international staff, and a great growth strategy, it's difficult to criticize this company. It makes money. It encourages managers to help employees, and account managers to be customer focused. It creates support and development teams that integrate well with their customer bases. Management seems to take the long view, is internationally focused, and supports environmental issues and local culture. While salaries lag behind industry standards a bit, and team members may struggle with internal localization issues, there is NOT an expectation of unsustainable work hours or intensive political maneuvering within the company. This is not a bad place for women and parents to work, unlike most software industries, with one major caveat, noted below. With a few fairly small adjustments to the work hour policy, the salary approach, and internal communications, this would be a 5 star company.

    Cons

    First, Yardi has a great, open-minded approach to the world and the community, but can be a bit suspicious of new employees. Since many people stay with the company for a very long time, there is long period of proving yourself when you start. While this prevents the destructive "golden boy" syndrome that is rampant in software, it also gets in the way of a seasoned new employee's performance potential.

    Second, there is a word-of-mouth internal information network that has some pitfalls, especially for new employees. An internal knowledge management process and system with points of contact in each department would improve efficiency by miles. It appears that this is a fairly normal growth issue, but one that management should address, and one which would change the information culture

    Finally, the company has an extreme adherence to onsite work and a core hour policy that does not allow single parents to pick up their kids and work at home occasionally to make up for school schedule issues. Parents must live with no vacation time for the first five years, unless they work out other arrangements with their managers, which puts everyone in an awkward spot. The current family-friendly business mantra is flexibility, and while Yardi is flexible in many regards, it doesn't formally support family schedules and needs. Again, the insistence on a core-hours policy that does not fit the local school schedules (by 30 minutes!) and absolutely never working at home for employees on location, gives employees a sense that they are not trusted, and makes life more difficult for parents.... not that this company is unique in these issues, but it seems counter to the overall management/HR strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing everything you are doing. Encourage managers to motivate high performing workers with a bit more salary. Ask for somewhat clearer goals. Provide better internal product information, and a way to allow people with children to manage their time a little better.
