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

    Pros

    Compensation is at acceptable levels, although raises are less than 1% per year, so get your money when you join. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Had to fight with management to get compensated at market levels. No sense of teamwork or camaraderie since work-from-home policy was instituted. All the C-level folks (including some Director-level employees) only care about political power and blaming each other when things go wrong; and a lot of projects go wrong, are left unfinished, or just not delivered altogether. The CTO isn't technical at all, and is in collusion with all but one of his Directors. Management has been around 8-12 years in the same position, and there is no upwards movement at all. They got rid of middle management, which used to be the only good thing in management; but I guess middle management got the blame one too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring your employees. Stop playing politics.

    Pros

    Not many other than having a paycheck.

    Cons

    Bad insurance, nobody knows who's in charge, and nobody cares. They are looking to sell company as an investment and there is no humanity.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't give any advice since they are in it until they can sell and move on with a bonus.

    Pros

    Casual work environment, good pay, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Poor executive team, takes advantage of temp workers, little room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with employees! Most of the time we never even knew what was going on. Also, make sure a product works efficiently before you launch it so that employees and customers are saved the headache. Find some employees with people skills to manage your teams.
