    I have been working at RentPath full-time

    Pros

    RentPath is an amazing place to work, from the employees down to the cutting edge advancements in product. Never have I been at a place where there is such a collaborative atmosphere and flat hierarchical structure. Everybody listens to you regardless of your position, and there is genuine interest in implementing good ideas regardless of where they came from. I believe that RentPath is a great place to learn and grow while having fun with great people along the way.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at RentPath full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good sense of community
    Sr. engineers are open to suggestions from Jr. engineers
    Good work/life balance
    5% time allocated for personal development
    Yearly conference allotment

    Cons

    Open floor plan in the Atlanta office makes it hard to concentrate, there is always a lot of noise and distractions.
    Lack of available offices/rooms for quiet workspaces
    Seems like deadlines are arbitrarily set by people with no technical experience and devs have to work a lot of overtime to meet them.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like the company is going in the right direction and management is trying to fix the communication issues. I guess I would say keep listening to your employees, we don't expect a perfect workplace, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

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

    Pros

    Office space is nice, phenomenal co workers, benefits are good (health, 401k match). On Marta route. Challenging work keeps you engaged.

    Cons

    Compensation. Horrible Management in multiple departments (as referenced in many reviews) HR department doesn’t do anything to counteract complaints. There is a Director that was given a role that is painfully obvious they can’t handle. No one knows how they are compensated as it’s consistently changing. Communication company wide is a non-existent. Initiatives are rolled out with 0 marketing collateral. Reactive company versus Proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Start communicating better as a company. Stop giving roles to people based on tenure and get them out of here when they can’t innovate or adapt to how the company is moving forward. Stop rewarding bad employees by moving them to new roles within the company. Listen to your employees, there is a consistent trend of unhappiness tied to middle management. You are losing seasoned sales reps, why? This could be a great company if more time was invested in your people. Focus on a proactive solution approach instead of waiting to see what happens. Communicate between departments when rolling out new strategies so there is a cohesive message company wide. Stop putting band aids on things and work on the foundation.

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation is better than industry standard. Great and fun coworkers.

    Cons

    Horrible management in several departments. They have directors in place who have no experience for the role they were given. Hardworking employees are not recognized while others are promoted. The company focuses too much on ludicrous implementations and processes that negatively impact employees and prevents them from doing their job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Identify those who actually make an impact and create revenue for the company. There is some great talent at the company but unfortunately they are neglected and are being set up for failure.

    Innovative technology company in a fast growing industry. Always adapting to consumer trends and needs.

    Cons

    Change can be a challenge for some or a way to learn and improve. Be prepared to adapt to changing initiatives and enhanced processes through time. Not neccasarily a bad thing

    Pros

    Office is in a great location. Sales people are in the field and don’t have to be in the office with all the negativity. The Multi family business is growing rapidly. These are about the only pros I can list.

    Cons

    They write their own Glassdoor reviews. I’ve actually heard HR ask several people to post positive reviews. That’s a little shady. Also, sales leadership is not honest and many are very backstabbing. Especially the sales VPs. Beware possible employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the fake reviews. Get better leaders for the sales team. Be a better competitor in terms of product and services. Costar is the market leader by far.

    Pros

    Strong management with great industry relationships to help usher new reps into their roles and territories.

    Cons

    Difficulty demonstrating a tangible ROI to customer.

    Advice to Management

    Allocate more funds towards SEO and SEM.
    Continue to innovate the product suite to stay ahead of competitors.
    Better overall marketing efforts. Great product, but competitors are far exceeding current marketing efforts.
