    I worked at RentPath full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader. Apartment Guide has a 30+ year history - unfortunately that is now being exploited.

    Cons

    Upon his hire, the CEO infamously told the entire employee base that Primedia's employees were it's greatest resource, it's greatest strength. The company then went on to reduce the sales force by 35%, the graphics team by probably 80% and the administrative staff by 90%. The remaining sales force was tasked with taking on considerably more work (both administrative and sales related activities) for LESS pay. Don't be fooled by offers of excellent pay and benefits - the pay plan changes with the wind, and the benefits have been reduced considerably. As the company has gone to almost all internet (elimination of print is almost complete), they continue to ask the folks in the field to deliver manipulated numbers to the client. This puts the sales person/field management in an awkward position as they are selling on relationships, but they aren't being completely honest with their partners (clients).

    Advice to Management

    This advice is for the board. For all your remaining employees - please, please evaluate your upper management team - not in terms of bottom line dollars, but in terms of ethics and leadership.

    I worked at RentPath full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people who work for Primedia. These people will go out of their way to be helpful. The company provides excellent results for their customers.

    Cons

    Definite gender discrimination. Lack of understanding between departments, which leads to conflict. Upper management does not understand exactly how the departments function with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at your management/director team; some of them who have been there for years need to move on to greener pastures. Open the door to more respectful, gender neutral, modern thinking employees.
