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

    Pros

    Corporate office location was nice.
    As an employee I found it easy to relate to my co-workers.
    They generally hire attractive people.

    Cons

    A large disconnect from upper management to the peons. Sounds like they just removed an entire department from the payroll. With basic math I figure they're saving major dollazzz. I'm sure there are also more cuts to come.
    Poor managers with BAD or NO simply get traded from team to team while other managers have to re-apply and prove themselves.
    The company has not had a serious advertising campaign since JB Smoove - that's killing the sales team.
    The senior leadership team has too many people that look like them and not enough people that look like me (if you know what I'm saying).

    Advice to Management

    Stop keeping secrets.

    Amazing company! Leadership is tremendous and provide much support to all their employees. Great work life balance.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Um free Starbucks in break room. A lot of holidays off compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Low pay

    Inside and outside sales team fight over and steal sales 

    Micromanaging, clocking in and out for the day and also lunch.

    Bad prospects, not enough prospects

    Constantly changing daily metrics of review

    Behind in technology. Some of the marketing tools can be achieved through free resources.

    An advertising company wants people to pay for advertising when the company does not advertise.

    Company does not pay based on experience and lumps all new sellers and experienced sellers with same salary pertaining to inside. No room for negotiation.

    Keeps people in leadership positions for far too long
    Deciet on commissions 

    Benefits monthly deductions based on salary plus target incentive and you may not make even half of that.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front and honest about the commission plan and prospect and competitive landscape in the interview process. Pay based on experience to attract diverse talent or change the role to be for entry level sales only. Go through the prospects to remove bad numbers etc to get a full picture of the amount of prospects. Allow outside and inside to get paid on the same prospect within same management company to allow for more team work instead of daily fight.

    I worked at RentPath (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Heart breaking disappointment in leadership and the disavowment of good employees.

    Cons

    Company culture, unwillingness to reward employees for their efforts. Every aspect of your job is in a grey area. Unless you’re up for hiring a lawyer to review your thousand page T&C document every week when they change your compensation plan, you need not apply. Corporate Failed on almost every important metric. Management failed to follow through on promises made and is more invested in sticking their noses up in the air over shrinking profitability from their high towers and barking orders to blind sheep leading the blind by the yolk, than follow advice of more successful leaders. A digital marketing and advertising company that doesn’t believe in advertising, you should run for the hills.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CEO with bigger hands, actual charisma, moral fiber, and experience in an industry that begs for it. Also, being a CEO, expand your wardrobe. It’s been 40 years, let the seventies die.
