What is paid time off like at RealPage?

Pros

Kind, talented colleagues. Accessible management. Interesting product line.

Cons

I should start by saying that I don't harbor any anger or ill feelings toward RealPage (despite my forthcoming harsh words). I'm sharing my thoughts below for two reasons: To allow any HR/Senior Management at RealPage/ThomaBravo reading this to reflect on the vision the foresee for the company and their employees, and to warn potential developer applicants from applying any time soon (unless serious and meaningful changes are made). I'm only speaking in my capacity as a developer; I'm sure others at RealPage have had/do have different (probably better) experiences, and I'm very happy for them. The bottom line that current RealPage developers (and potential developer applicants) need to know is this: You are being undervalued and under-compensated. I know everyone likes to complain about their low compensation. I get it. But what happens at RealPage isn't one of those instances. It's quite different. I'm not talking about 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30% below market rate. No. I'm saying 50%+ below market rate. When I finally decided to look for a new role, I was able to get two job offers that were very similar to my RealPage role (in terms of tech stack and requirements) at similarly-sized (even smaller) organizations for significantly more money. One was for 47% more, and the other for 58% more money than I made at RealPage. It was kind of dumbfounding to me when I heard those numbers, especially since I knew I actually made more money than many of my colleagues (those of us who are close had discussed our pay...that shouldn't come as a shock to RealPage HR or any other HR department in 2021...Millennials don't think those subjects are taboo...we discuss them openly to make sure we're being valued and treated well). RealPage's benefits, too, aren't up to industry standard. At almost every other similarly-sized tech company I interviewed at, PTO was unlimited and health benefits were 100% paid by the employer. At RealPage you get 5 sick days a year and if you need more, you have to tap into your limited PTO. This policy is beyond insane. It's not 1950 anymore. If you want to be perceived as a competitive tech company, please don't make your employees take PTO if/when they need surgery and need 2 weeks to recover. Those policies are outdated and need to be retired immediately. 401(k) matching is discretionary and it only happens once a year as a lump sum. Anyone with a basic understanding of compounding interest knows this hurts employees (i.e. start contributing the match on a monthly basis and not once a year...that's lazy and doesn't maximize the benefits of investment growth). If you're a developer with a good head on your shoulders, I promise you this: You can do better. You won't be challenged at RealPage. You'll just coast and be mediocre (and I'll admit that's where I was for the longest time until I started to feel stagnant). Please don't repeat my mistake. With the ThomaBravo acquisition, it's hard to say what their vision will be for the company, especially the developers. Chances are they'll look to outsource a lot of work offshore. That should be another motive for you not to apply at this time; wait for the dust to settle and see what they do. Better yet, look at what ThomaBravo has done to other companies they've acquired (ex: Sophos) and see what happened there and proceed with caution.

Advice to Management

Your employees are your best asset and yet you're still stuck operating with values from 1998 (i.e. the year RealPage was founded). I encourage you to check out what other companies your size are doing, see how they treat their employees, and try to follow suit. Start paying your developers fairly. Start offering competitive benefits (paying 50% of medical care is not competitive in 2021 for a tech company...please stop operating with standards from 30 years ago).

Does RealPage offer massages?

Pros

Office amenities like free coffee, game room, and paid gym. Internal promotions are attainable if you work hard or are lucky.

Cons

Completely uncompetitive salary. There was a significant reduction in force during the Thoma Bravo acquisition this year that was terribly managed by HR. Annual salary increases were held off during this time and when they finally arrived after the RIF, it was an absolute joke. Everything went downhill when Barry Carter, the CIO, took over the helm at IT. What was once a fun work culture practically disappeared overnight and hardly any attempt was made to improve employee morale. I'm can't even comfortably mention the worse cons. If you value your mental well being, stay clear of RealPage.

Advice to Management

Direct management should consider employment at an organization that values their worth. Senior management should start treating their employees like human beings, that is with respect and kindness.
