    I worked at RentPath full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people across all departments, flexible, good benefits.

    Cons

    The CEO, Marc Lefar, is close-minded, disconnected, and seemingly disinterested with the industry. He refuses to listen, ignores tribal knowledge, and disregards our partners' data and the validity it has in terms of product performance. He has little respect for sales, and is combative with any feedback or suggestions that do not align with his beliefs. There is obvious favoritism at play; the dysfunctional politics going on at every level is embarrassing. There is a blind-spot as it relates to the current state of the product, and the company's response is to completely ignore it, and in turn repeat the same one-liners over and over. Just because you're saying it doesn't make it true. There is an emphasis on data and processes, but the internal data is constantly incorrect, and most processes don't align with the client experience and overall human element.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO who knows what to prioritize and how to effectively execute, and is open to people challenging the status quo, and will actually give them room to do their job. Address the product issues, or the other ILS's will run you out of business.

    Pros

    The nature of the work is a blast. Great place to learn about data science, big data, analytics and digital marketing services.

    The people, the leadership and the culture are phenomenal.

    It’s a relatively small company, so everyone has big meaningful jobs. Your work can have a big impact on the performance of the company.

    It’s a very dynamic, open culture so things move very fast. Work load and deadlines ca be challenging, but leadership has a great attitude about work life balance which means that you can telecommute, or take comp time when things slow down.

    Cons

    Competition is completely irrational. Having to deal with some of the things they do and try to get away with is a bit frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Our people are our greatest assets. So keep doing things that boost morale and incent performance.
