    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, hard work but it's rewarded. Those who work hard have lots of opportunities. Culture is great, and it's mostly relaxed and fun

    Cons

    Fast growth sometimes means there arent enough people to do all the work. They are hiring as quickly as they can to keep up.

    Pros

    Positive growth of company as a whole, wide variety of career options/growth within the company (also promotion from within), access to resources, never boring, good teams and coworkers

    Cons

    Sometimes understaffing concerns due to business demand for software, sometimes the company still thinks small/could use more formalized project management process

    Great Place To Work At If You Want A Chill Job

    Pros

    The company culture is very relaxed. It is not one of those high pressure high stress environments where not meeting deadlines will get you fired. That being said you are expected to get your work done within a range of dates. Stuff happens and they are understanding. For the most part, once you get the hang of it and there no hiccups you should be able to always meet deadlines. 75% of the month feels like downtime and prep work while the remaining 25% is when you burst through your workload (this is expected of you).

    Great Medical Benefits. Single, Male, within 22-28 age range and I pay roughly $6 for health, dental, vision insurance.

    Flexible work schedule.

    Profit sharing.

    Cons

    This is not one of those companies like the ones your friend is in where they get some raise like 10%-20% and couple thousand as a bonus. Here you get 1%(poor performance) - 3% (great performance). Bonus here is $250 which after taxes you will see about $160. Moving up the ranks is slower than a sloth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management crew. They really care about the individuals. If your position is not working and you are not performing up to standards they will find a different position that would be more suited for you instead of firing you.

    Good, stable, growing company. Underpaid, but I suppose that goes along with all companies located in SB.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Friendly work environment
    Casual dress is acceptable (shorts, flipflops, etc.)

    Cons

    Pay is low for the value you provide. Ask for more!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your good employees more so that you can keep them. We lose far too many good employees for this reason. Also, provide training for new managers.

    Pros

    Casual dress code, paid benefits, office culture, fun atmosphere, office events, and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Very low pay with high expectations, not much room to advance, poor communication within departments, and lack of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pay needs to be reevaluated immediately. The communication between departments is lacking. More internal transfer opportunities should be available if you want to keep your employees. Training needs to be focused on; it's apparant the company grew too fast to keep up with internally.

    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.

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

    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.
