    I worked at ForRent.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ForRent is part of the MFH industry, which is a fun field to work in. There is great synergy in our field office but that's because we are awesome.

    Cons

    Internal company communications are terrible - there is no company culture in the field offices. Budgets are tight, employee engagement is low. Middle management is crippled by unattainable sales quotas. This company simply cannot compete with CoStar/Apartments.com and the writing is on the wall: this company will be sold very soon.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that they start fluffing their LinkedIN profiles!

    Sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience in one of our field offices. Many of us are excited about the future of ForRent.com.

    Pros

    Good planning. Friendly co-workers. Great product specification documents prior to development.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement when working for a satellite team. Communication was not great, as you were the "forgotten group." Being in a satellite office made co-workers with poor work ethics even more difficult to work with.

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Good commission structure. Nice people to work with. Great relationship tool with clients.

    Cons

    They aren't able to compete with Costar (apartments.com) and they're panicking. Just laid off admins, not sure what's going to happen next. They're running out of money, and might eventually sell. General Sales Managers are lunatics who are afraid of losing their job on a daily basis. Clients are beginning to lose confidence in ForRent's ability to provide quality leads.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to suck up to your front line because business is obviously not good.

    Overall great company culture. Easy to understand compensation plan.

    Cons

    Car allowance could be a little better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
